Beyond the Twenty-First Time

Six years ago, I was bopping along in my car, oblivious to the need around me. A new song debuted on the radio station I was tuned to. As I listened, I had to put my turn indicator on and pull my car over.

To get my weeping on.

Monk & Neagle’s song, The Twenty-First Time was that powerful, for me. It overtook every excuse I had ever given for not recognizing Need. Grace took that opportunity to reach in, grab a hold of my heart, and gave it a much-needed shake.

I hope you can overlook some of the heavy-handed images that were chosen for this video. I am praying that Grace will reach in and touch your heart, in any way, for the good of the deeper message within the lyrics. And I deeply hope that we will all be willing to keep looking way beyond the twenty-first time.

William Shakespeare famously said that “When words fail, music speaks.”

May it be true here, today.

  1. Thank you for sharing. It’s so easy to look past those in need, especially with how busy everyone is. We just have to slow down and pay attention. Even a smile will do.

  2. Thank you for sharing that glimpse of your life. And the way it impacted you. I just sat and listened to the song a couple of times. And thinking of areas of my life that I overlook…look past, etc.
    (PS this week i am going to do a day each on beauty in words, art and music…the shakespeare quote has me thinking!)
