Have you ever heard a song that you just cannot seem to get enough of? You play it, set it on repeat, and the melody swims across your mind even when you are far away from the stereo.
The words swim in soothing currents in your head because you connect with parts of the song. Perhaps you enjoy the melody. Tell me, is it the words that keep you coming back for seconds? Is the song like a sweet dessert that you divulge before you head to bed?
I have had Madilyn Bailey’s version of Don’t You Worry Child in my head for over a week now. The track is this week’s Tunes with Tuesday song.
I replay the song on YouTube and I listen intently to the words. I love the hope that her words offer, in such genuine tones that hug my heart without any physical touch.
The words that Madilyn Bailey softly sings tell us not to worry. “Heaven’s got a plan for you”. That is my favorite line.
I think about the struggles I have been through and seen the threads unravel on items I wore. I see more blue skies now than I did a few years ago. I did not understand why I went through such struggles at a young age.
Now, I think that there is a bigger plan for me. I learned so much about myself, about the world… I am still learning. We always have so much more to learn, and there is self-discovery with each new day.
This is christyb: I hope you take time today to listen to this song of hope. I also hope you ride the currents of music when you need hope and need a reminder about how to swim.
