My Little Prayer

I have always loved music. When it's pure music it uplifts your spirit and clears all of the fear and confusion of the world away. When it all becomes too much for me, I go for walks to clear my head and drown out the voices of the world. Music helps me do that as well.

More specifically HIS music. Who is this he I speak of? David Archuleta. I am not obsessed or fangirling I promise. It's just that over the years he has released many songs. There have been a few that have stayed with me because of the messages they gave.

These few songs shocked me greatly when I heard them because it was almost as if he knew exactly what I was feeling or experiencing and knew exactly what I needed to hear to gain strength and continue on.

Not many artists have that ability and not many artists are as faithful, steadfast, and in tune with the Spirit as David Archuleta. I titled this post, "My Little Prayer" because of his most recent song video release. Listen to it for yourself:


He has a great gift and I love the way he is using it. He also released this new video:




I just recently found this one and am impressed with just how much he seems to know me. I too have to run away, or go for a walk and clear my head. I need to separate from the rest of the world and silence the voices of the world that negate my existence and all that I am. 

If you haven't heard of him before or just haven't heard these two songs recently, then check him out and his previous work. Because I have listened to him from his beginning, I can see just how much the both of us have grown and how the topics, style, and depth of his music has matured and grown just as we both have. 

I know that may sound weird talking about how we have both grown, but keep a few things in mind. We are the same age, and essentially experiencing similar things. Also, music connects memories in our brains just as strongly as certain smells and other sensory stimuli that occur during the moments and memories we have stored in our minds. 

Anyway, I just found these songs and had to share. I love having this blog because it allows me to place my thoughts somewhere and express my emotions in a way that is difficult for me to do in person. However, knowing the dangers of anti-social behaviors, I am working to be more social . Wish me luck!
