At first listen, this song is almost the total opposite of what I usually post here. Normally I post upbeat, uplifting songs with the intention of igniting and sustaining a positive mindset in myself and my readers.
Well the truth is, sometimes before you can be uplifted, you need to be reached right where you are. That moment when you are at your lowest is when you need that inkling of hope to give you the desire to rise.
And so today’s song is shared from a different approach but with the same intention. It is my goal to reach any and everyone with inspiration, no matter whether you are at your lowest level or rising to the top.
Jill Scott’s “Hear My Call” is incredibly powerful and soul stirring. She shows so much of her vulnerability in this song. It really touched me on a deep level when I took the time to listen to the lyrics because I could relate.
It is extremely important to be able to relate to people in life. This is why we are all here together and why we all need each other to survive. When you realize that you are not the only one going through a hard time, it gives you a sense of relief to know you are not alone.
So this song is shared to remind you that when you are at your lowest moment, even the best of us have been exactly where you are. No matter the circumstances, everybody has been at a point where they feel lost and confused and they need help from a higher power.
It’s also important to realize that this low point in your life is not the end of the world. It’s ok to be vulnerable. There is power in your vulnerability. When you finally stop trying to figure everything out and you cry out to God, you allow Him to more readily show up in your life. Stop trying to be Superwoman and Superman all the time. Realize that you can’t do this thing called life on your own, and ask for help. That is what this song is all about.
When you let down your walls, you let God in and that’s when the magic happens.
You can add this song to your playlist for the hard times when you need someone else to relate to, and as a reminder to call out to God when you don’t know what to do:
