This is one of those posts that do not come easy to me.
It is about faith.
Why is it so hard for me to write about faith?
I believe it is because I am not confident in my faith. I do not mean that I do not believe or that I do not have faith in God. I am not confident in my own faith and that it makes it difficult to talk about it. Will what I say make any sense? Do I know what I am really talking about it?
I think as a mom, as a Christian mom we all have those thoughts. While we have no doubt in what we believe, what we can accomplish….we still do not have confidence in our faith…in ourselves.
At times, my faith feels so disconnected. Like I am just going through the motions or I have walked away completely. It can feel like I am stumbling through life with no direction whatsoever.
It is times like those that we have to dig deep and remember our faith in the one who will show us the way and keep us on the path he has set out for us. At this point most people drop to their knees and pray. Me? I turn on music. Not just any music. I turn on my favorite Christian/Devotional Music. This is how to become recentered with where I know I belong and where I need to do. Of course I pray. Daily. Sometimes hourly. But music immediately calms me. I feel the words. I feel every beat within my being. I know once again my faith in myself is restored. While I have been wondering aimlessly, my confidence in my faith and in myself was there all along. I just needed to find it again.
This new album by Christy Nockels called “Into the Glorious” really speaks to me. When the music starts, I feel a peace come over me. I can feel God speaking to me through this music. I think he knows that this is the way to really reach me, to reassure me that I am important. That I can do this. He has faith in me so I should have it too.
Christy’s new Album Into the Glorious will hit store shelves April 3rd.
Christy Nockels is a singer-songwriter and worship leader for Passion City Church who lives in Atlanta, GA with her husband, Nathan, and their three children.
