How Kutless Saved My Life
As I’ve mentioned, music is powerful. There is a reason why when you feel angry and you listen to a happy and uplifting song, you are likely to calm down or even cheer up a bit. Or, if a very negative song with a hard and fast paced beat is playing, it can surely make you feel mad or susceptible to being mad easier.
When I was in my dark days of depression, looking back I can see how music played a huge part in helping me recover and even bring God back into my life. I remember it well, I came across Christian rock group Kutless on a Pandora internet radio Christian music station. Their songs just resonated with me, and I feel, guided me during a very negative time in my life. Ultimately, it led me to find God again! That’s how powerful music is!
Songs like What Faith Can Do, Strong Tower, We Fall Down, Take Me In, All Who Are Thirsty, Promise Of A Lifetime, Ready For You, and I can name a bunch more. In fact, skimming through some of these songs as I write this post, I am reminded of the feelings that I had back then. I feel the shivers and tingles throughout my body because it feels so surreal.
That feeling, I believe, is the feeling of the music shaping your entire being like how music shaped matter seen in this post. Kutless’ songs kept me up while I felt down or needed an uplift. It wasn’t easy pressing play because for some people (like myself) with depression, it can become a never ending hole that you’re falling into. It’s a self sabotage type of “disease”. It’s almost as if you’re addicted to the sad feeling.
But, that’s where Kutless’ music kept me up. When listening to some of their songs I cheered up, it gave me a sense of hope, gave me faith for a better future, and guided me to God.
This is my own personal testimony with the power of music, Christian music at that. Every person will be different and music will resonate differently between each individual. For me it was Kutless, a rock style genre. For others it will differ.
Find the type of Christian music genre that resonates with you well to keep you in faith, motivated, and happy. Come back here to discover more Christian music artists, like Lauren Daigle, and perhaps you’ll find the right one to uplift your soul and keep you close to God.
God Bless always!
