I have battled with depression and anxiety for many years. This last year I started commuting to Madison for work and nothing starts my day better and winds it down more perfectly than a dose of uplifting and positive music from Life 102.5. One song in particular that really speaks to me (once I really focused on the words) is Greater by Mercy Me. There were others that really kicked me around in the past. Then I hear things like “greater is the one living inside of me, than he who is living in the world” and “will not say I’ll never be enough.” I had to buy a cd because I want to hear this song every day if it’s not on the radio. It’s like I have become a part of that song and that song has become a part of me.
Sometimes it’s easier to just let things go. But what does that look like in a culture that holds up anger as a virtue?
