83. Soaking Worship Music

I have two albums written and sung by Kathi Wilson that I listen to on my MP3 for a time-out when stress and overwork are bringing the cloud of depression too close to me. The two albums are Nothing Will I Withhold and Sweet Surrender. They can be found on her website http://living-water-productions.com.  Here is what Bryn Williams, Kathi’s brother and producer, says about soaking worship music.

‘Soaking worship’ or ‘soaking prayer’ as it is sometimes called, is

focused time communing with God, facilitated by the new genre of Christian music generally referred to as ‘soaking music’; music written, played and sung by the new psalmists, characterized by relaxing, peaceful, gentle tones and harmonies.

We know from experience that a wonderful way to relax is soaking in a warm bath while listening to quiet, soothing music in an atmosphere of soft candles and beautiful aromas. It creates a peaceful, serene interlude.

Physical immersion in the water and the calming atmosphere separate us from the demands of the day, enabling us to let go of tension and stress. It is a soothing, quiet time apart where we can relax, become centered, regain our inner harmony and emerge refreshed.

Soaking worship takes that simple analogy to a higher spiritual experience. It is a time apart with the Lord to become immersed in His presence, to soak in His love, to feel His living water flowing through us and all around us, returning us to peace and well-being.

Soaking worship music has the power to move us emotionally and spiritually in ways that usher us into the presence of the Lord. The music helps us quiet our minds and relax our bodies, taking us out of our heads where we are consumed with everyday challenges, and back into our hearts where we can more easily receive and feel God’s love and the joy of life.

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
