I am so grateful for my Christmas present this year: an iPod dock. I listen to music all the time and it helps fill a void since I only get two channels on the tv. I loved being in the Robshaw house and hearing worship music everywhere - because they had one. So, that is definitely what a want for my apt, house, for my kids to grow up listening to: worship music. It is so crucial to my walk with God. And I thoroughly look forward to my walks now because I take my iPod to go and worship while I walk. Its an amazing time! :) Being in God's creation for about 90 minutes a day and singing songs to Him and for Him.
Here are some lyrics that have meant a lot to me recently:
Jesus Lover of my Soul: (Hillsong) - you've taken me from the miry clay (but he loved me even when I was in that miry clay - sin).
Vision of You (Shanes): Come meet us, King Jesus. Oh wind of change blow through this temple. Sweet spirit of God, come and mend our hearts. For all we have are songs. Unless you come. Awaken what's inside of me. Tune my heart to all You are in me. Even though you're here, God come. May the vision of You be the death of me.and even though You've given everything. Jesus come!
Bad Days Better (Shanes): You have made my day. Even in stormy weather. I'm dancing in all the rain. Cause you make bad days ~~ great is the way. When you come to mind, I am smiling ear to ear. Sweet thoughts of you. I'm always in the mood to twirl around with you while it's raining. Even if it's a dream. You have made my day. Even in stormy weather. I'm dancing in all the rain. Cause you make bad days ~(better)
This is one of the reasons I listen to music with strong lyrics. The lyrics in songs nowadays speaks much of theology, worldview, etc. What do the lyrics you listen to say about you? and/or your God?
