You Unravel Me with a Melody

Zephaniah 3:17 says “The Lord your God is with you, he is might to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”

I struggle with fear and anxiety. The first time I heard this song at our church I thought it was written just for me. I love that music has the ability to cause me to feel emotions and connect with what I may be going through at that time. The first two lines of this song are so true for me “You unravel me with a melody, you surround me with a song, of deliverance from my enemies till all my fears are gone. He does unravel me with a melody and uses that to soothe my fears. He also uses other genres to speak to my heart and soul. I feel renewed and encouraged by music and especially Christian music.

I hope you enjoy the song.

  1. Oh my, once again your post has been God’s messenger to minister to me, and I am grateful. A stressful day, but He is near, surrounding me with comfort and reassurance. I agree that Christian music is wonderful–I’m astounded at how God has anointed many with the gift of writing music and lyrics from HIS heart, to us. I can’t sing a lick, but I join in, knowing God is not concerned about the quality lacking in my voice–it is always the heart-connection He’s looking for, and I’ve got that with Him, in spades ❤ May He bless you so abundantly today, sister ❤


  2. Thank you. I am glad God is using me. Our pastor always says “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord,” when encouraging us to sing. It doesn’t say what kind of noise our singing has to be. I used to sing, but my voice has changed and now I sing lower than I used to. I’m working on the heart connection again. I had been holding a grudge to the point of hating someone and just recently was able to forgive that person and myself. Gosh, I feel like I wrote this already somewhere. Sorry for the repeat. My point is I felt joy when I sang in church this past Sunday that I hadn’t felt in a long, long time. Still need to work on that soul searching and see what other pockets God needs to clean out. They sure do get dirty sometimes.


  3. This particular version of the song is by Jonathan & Melissa with Bethel Music, and is my favorite version of this song. Closer to the end of the song it transitions to Melissa, and she sings with passion the words “I am a child of God” – which is true not because we say it is, but because God call us his children. One thing that many parents want most for their children is for them to know that they are loved, more than almost anything else. I think God wants that for us too, and I think His heart breaks, like ours would do as parents, if our kids didn’t know deep down in their hearts that we love them like crazy, just as they are. We are deeply loved as children of God.
