If you are going through cancer, an illness, disease, or any stressful event, I encourage you to add a daily dose of music to your life.
Music can encourage you, inspire you, and give you hope. Music can lift your spirits when you are down, calm you when you are on your last nerve or help you find the courage to make it through one more treatment and one more day.
Choose songs that will make you smile and give you hope during your journey. Listen to them throughout the day.
During my months of treatment for breast cancer, I played songs in the car, in the house, everywhere. At times I would sing to the top of my lungs. Other times I would listen and cry because the words touched me so.
I used headphones to listen during my treatments, in the waiting room of doctor’s appointments, or whenever I needed to drown out the negative noises around me.
For me, music played and continues to play a part in my healing process.
I’ve included my favorite songs below. These are all Christian based because they’re the ones that touch my heart most. I believe that my healing comes not only from a great medical staff but ultimately from my Lord and Savior.
If you would like to listen to these songs on Spotify, here is the link to my Christian Songs about Hope and Healing Playlist. (I’m not affiliated with Spotify and do not receive any compensation from them.) If you aren’t already registered, you’ll need to sign up on Spotify, but it’s free.
I pray these songs will be a blessing to you as they have been for me.
