My friend and GriefShare Co-Facilitator Gina, sent me links thinking they would be good to share with you. However, the stats provided by WordPress indicate my readers do not click on links to other websites.
So I have some reservations about publishing this post but decided the information is too good not to share.
It is my prayer that you will click on the links whether or not you are grieving, and listen to Chris Fabry’s program on Moody Radio with Steve Siler of musicforthesoul.org.
This link will take you to hour #1 of Chris Fabry’s January 2nd show which is an interview with Steve about his album entitled “Drink Deep”. The album chronicles a journey through grief starting with finding out about someone’s death and ending with the victory we have through Christ.
The title song is about dealing with grief by drinking deep, or as we say in “Griefshare” – leaning into grief.
Drink deep of the sorrow
Drink deep of the pain
Don’t let anybody tell you
to get out of the rain
This is your cup
and you’re the one who has to drink
Though the taste may go down bitterly
Experiencing a deep drink of grief, expands your capacity for joy because once you know life’s bitter taste you have a greater appreciation for it’s sweet nectar.
This link will take you to hour #2 of Chris’s program which is about being ambushed by grief. Chris plays “Ambush” from “Drink Deep” and take calls from listener’s dealing with ambushes.
I purchased Steve’s album, downloaded it and listened to it in one sitting. I did not do anything else, no writing, cooking, or playing with Rommie. I just sat and listened, enjoying every song and the emotions so beautifully captured by Steve and the other writers and singers who were apart of the project.
While I love every song on the album, my favorites are “Every Single Tear” which is about God comforting you.
“Your heart is what he hears
When the world just hears you crying”
What a beautiful thought.
My other favorite is “Death Has Been Conquered” which is about Christ’s victory over death.
Don’t think this CD or interview is not for you if you are not grieving. “Drink Deep” will teach you about a grief journey. You will better understand a grieving person after listening to this CD.
Thank you to Steve Siler, for a beautiful album.
Thank you Chris Fabry for not only doing a show about grief but making it your first one of the year.
Thank you Gina Koch for sending me the links to the show and the lyrics.
