Isn’t it crazy how one song can take you back instantly to a moment a person or even a spirtual place. No matter what else has changed in you or the world…that one song stays the same, just like that moment.
I can remember back when I was 12 years old hearing this song sung in church. “I Believe.” It effected me so deeply. The impact was so profound. I found my self at complete peace. Something I hadn’t felt for a long time. I had just lost the only Mother I had known at 11 years of age. Moved to a new home, new family, new city and new church. I had felt so lost. Then this lady stood in the choir and sang this song – “I Believe” and something in me change for the better from that day on. Years passed and I never heard that beautiful song again. Then two weeks ago while I was cleaning my house what song comes on? That’s right, I Believe. But this time sung by Aaron Neville. I’m not embarrassed to say I got emotional. I actually weeped with joy. I was hit with that same peace I felt at 12 years old. On that same day two ladies knocked at my door and I let them in. Something I don’t normally do. But now i am glad I did. They enriched me with the their knowledge, grace and left me in spiritual peace. I had felt like something was missing in my life, but couldn’t put my finger on it. Until I heard this song then all the pieces to the puzzle fell into place.
Try and remember a place, a person, a smell a memory or a song that can take you back instantly to a good place. What’s your’s?
I believe for every drop of rain that falls a flower grows
I believe that some where in the darkest night a candle glows
I believe for everyone who goes astray
Someone will come to show the way, I believe, I believe
I believe above the storm the smallest prayer will still be heard
I believe that someone in the great some where hears every word
Every time I hear a newborm baby cry or touch a leaf or see the sky
Then I know why I believe
