Some songs

There are three songs by the American Christian rock band Skillet that bring the Gods and Goddesses into my mind and closer to my heart. “Feel Invisible,” “Stars,” and “Rest.”

Feel invisible 

“Target on my back / Lone survivor lasts / They got me in their sights / No surrender no / Trigger fingers go / Living the dangerous life / Hey, hey, hey / Everyday when I wake / I’m trying to get up, they’re knocking me down / Chewing me up, spitting me out / Hey, hey, hey / When I need to be saved / You’re making me strong, you’re making me stand / Never will fall, never will end / Shot like a rocket up into the sky / Nothing could stop me tonight / You make me feel invincible / Earthquake, powerful / Just like a tidal wave / You make me brave / You’re my titanium / Fight song, raising up / Like a roar of victory in a stadium / Who can touch me cause I’m / I’m made of fire / Who can stop me tonight / I’m hard wired / You make me feel invincible / I feel, I feel it / Invincible / I feel, I feel it / Invincible / Here we go again / I will not give in / I’ve got a reason to fight / Every day we choose / We might win or lose / This is the dangerous life / Hey, hey, hey / Everyday when I wake / They say that I’m gone; they say that they’ve won / The bell has been rung, it’s over and done / Hey, hey, hey / When I need to be saved / They counting me out, but this is my round / You in my corner; look at me now / Shot like a rocket up into the sky / Nothing could stop me tonight / You make me feel invincible / Earthquake, powerful / Just like a tidal wave / You make me brave / You’re my titanium / Fight song, raising up / Like a roar of victory in a stadium / Who can touch me cause I’m / I’m made of fire / Who can stop me tonight / I’m hard wired / You make me feel invincible / I feel, I feel it / Invincible / I feel, I feel it / Invincible / You make me feel invincible / You make me feel invincible / Shot like a rocket up into the sky / Not gonna stop / Invincible / You make me feel invincible / Earthquake, powerful / Just like a tidal wave / You make me brave / You’re my titaniu / Fight song, raising up / Like a roar of victory in a stadium / You make me feel invincible / Earthquake, powerful / Just like a tidal wave / You make me brave / You’re my titanium / Fight song, raising up / Like a roar of victory in a stadium / Who can touch me cause I’m / I’m made of fire / Who can stop me tonight / I’m hard wired / You make me feel invincible / I feel, I feel it / Invincible / I feel, I feel it  / Invincible” (lyrics found here https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/skillet/feelinvincible.html )

“Feel Invincible” by Skillet gets me moving, when I am feeling down. It’s one of those songs that’s a good work out song that also feels devotional at the same time. Like Anubis or Wepwawet is in a way sparing with me when I am shadow boxing.

Stars

“You spoke a word and life began / Told oceans where to start and where to end / You set in motion time and space / But still You come and You call to me by name / But still You come and You call to me by name / If you can hold the stars in place / You can hold my heart the same / Whenever I fall away / Whenever I start to break / So here I am, lifting up my heart / To the One who holds the stars / The deepest depths, the darkest nights / Can’t separate, can’t keep me from your sight / I get so lost, forget my way / But still You love and You don’t forget my name / If You can hold the stars in place / You can hold my heart the same / Whenever I fall away / Whenever I start to break / So here I am, lifting up my heart / If You can calm the raging sea / You can calm the storm in me / You’re never too far away / You never show up too late / So here I am, lifting up my heart / To the One who holds the stars / Your love has called my name / What do I have to fear? / What do I have to fear? / Your love has called my name / What do I have to fear? / What do I have to fear? / If You can hold the stars in place / You can hold my heart the same / Whenever I fall away / Whenever I start to break / So here I am, lifting up my heart / (Lifting up my heart) / If You can calm the raging sea / You can calm the storm in me / You’re never too far away / You never show up too late / So here I am, lifting up my heart / To the One who holds the stars / You’re the One who holds the stars” (lyrics found here https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/skillet/starstheshackversion.html )

“Stars” by Skillet makes me think of both Ra, as Creator, and Nut, as “the One who holds the stars.” This song for me is a calming song.

Rest

“Still, soft quietly spoken voice / That persistenly calls my name / And quickens my heart to come / And I come / [Chorus:] / And I rest in the shelter of Your love / And I rest in the wonder of Your Grace / And I rest in the shelter of Your love  / And I rest in the wonder of You  / Embraced in the promise of You  / Is rest for the weary soul  / Releasing all that is mine  / I reach for You  / [CHORUS] / Take all the old and You make it new / Everything I give to You  / You’re the hope that can pull me through / Hallelujah / [CHORUS (repeat)]” (lyrics found here https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/skillet/rest.html )

I first listened to “Rest” by Skillet after a bad day. It just made me feel good and think of Anubis. When I sing along to this song, I always think of Anubis.
