There Must Be Something in the Water - Another Incredible Message from a Country Song

A Hopeful Message From a Country Song

How did another Sunday get here so quickly?

Assigned this glorious day to write about country music, it's my pleasure to give you a heads up on another magnificent tune headed straight to number one, about love, life, change, and hope.
 If you haven't heard Carrie Underwood's latest single, released September 29th, 2014, 'Something in the Water,' get those speakers ready and crank this one up!

Although the song has a religious reference to Baptism, the lyrics easily apply to anybody going through a significant metamorphosis.

If you've journeyed down endless rocky roads and, without realizing it, found yourself wasting too much of
your life, then Carrie's gorgeous song of hope and choice was written for you.
(Lyrics) He said, "I've been where you've been before.
Down every hallway's a slamming door."
No way out, no one to come and save me
Wasting a life that the Good Lord gave me"

As we get older, and with a little bit of luck, many of us are invited to sit at the table of reflection

This coveted seat allows us to see the genuine value of living the life we are meant to live. We remember our idealistic spirit, the one we now see in younger souls coming up behind us, the ones now headed to the same table of reflection we've reached.

Looking in the eyes of youthful energy, the table of reflection calls you to pray that these young up-and-comers see their value and tap into their life purpose with as little pain as possible. All of us gathered around this table have come to understand one key point about life; in everything we do, there is a choice, and ultimately, we are responsible for our own decisions.
(Lyrics) "Couldn't fight back the tears so I fell on my knees
Saying, "God, if you're there come and rescue me."
Felt love pouring down from above
Got washed in the water, washed in the blood and now I'm changed
And now I'm stronger"

Take the Wishes Challenge!

If you were granted one wish, what would that wish be? If you're a 20-year-old soul reading this page, I challenge you to write down that wish, then every five years, ask the question again, write down that answer and do that every half decade you live. Keep those wishes safely tucked in a box, and when you're invited to the table of reflection later in life, look back to see how your desires have changed. As Carrie's song expresses, 'I am changed, I am Stronger, I was blind, and now I see.'

May your Sunday be blessed with the joy of love, friends, and family, and if you find yourself void of any of these, then please accept my virtual hug of hope given in the lyrics of 'Something in the Water':

Have a wonderful day!

  1. Man, you gotta love country musicians who never hesitate to sing about real life experience and so openly express their beliefs. What a great song! This is the first time I have heard it. I like the message and while I believe it is more the man who walked on the water that changes us, I get it. Carrie Underwood will reach more people with this message than most of us do in a lifetime. Most excellent! Thank you for sharing the song and also for sharing the encouragement to step out and embrace the needed changes in our lives. If I could be granted one wish, what would it be? That's easy for me, it would be that my children would walk in His will all the days of their lives. It is the last prayer that slips from my lips every night before I go to sleep.

    1. Now that's a beautiful prayer to end your day with Cynthia. If you read my review about a loved one going through addiction, my prayers involved calling up the angels, God, and all of our passed away loved ones to hold his hand and guide him out of that dark pitt of blackness. Tough. Very tough, but he pulled through, and like I said in that review 'carried by angels I'm sure'.

  2. wonderful song! Thanks so much for sharing it with us.
