Happy Thursday! Here is what is in my earbuds today! Music heals, maybe you will find some encouragement today! Comment on the blog any songs I should add to my playlist!
“Sparrows, by Cory Ausbury”
My favorite lyric in this song…”You Take Good Care Of Me” over and over I recite these words, because I believe them. I know that God can operate inside His character even in a world that is not kind. The Bible tells us He cares about the sparrows, how much more does he care about us?
“Believe For It”
This song has been in my ear buds for two years, it was a go to track for me during the pandemic. This song is filled with Hope, “we know that Hope is never lost, for there is still an empty grave…”. There is so much power in His name! Do you believe it?
“They say this mountain can’t be moved, they say these chains will never break, but they don’t know You like we do, there is power in Your name. We have heard there is no way through, that the tide will never change, they haven’t seen what You can do, there is power in Your name. Move the immoveable, break the unbreakable, God we believe, God we believe for it. From the impossible, we will see a miracle, God, we believe, we believe for it.”
“The God Who Stays”
This song is like sweet honey to my sometimes bitter-ish spirit. It is hard to trust in a God Who we can not see, but I find Him incredibly trustworthy because..
“You are the God who stays, You are the God Who stays, you are the one who runs in my direction when the whole world walks in my direction when the whole world walks away, you are the God who stands with open arms and you tell me that there is nothing that I have ever done can separate my heart from the God Who stays.”
“Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”
Natalie Grant and The Belonging Company
This has been a long time favorite of mine, but this version by Natalie Grant took her to her knees as it did me. The things of earth and the things we worry about truly are dim when outshined by Jesus. Will you turn your eyes upon the anchor of our Hope?
“No light in the darkness you see, but just one look at the Savior is life more abundant and free, just look up, help is on the way. Turn, turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full, look full in his wonderful face, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim, when you turn, turn your eyes upon Him”
