I usually write about what I'm reading. I'm still thinking, but this time my thoughts are reflected by the music I'm listening to. Here is a sampling (They are in the order of my playlist).
1) Dark Haired Darling, Josh Bales--Josh was a friend of mine early in college, and I found his music on iTunes recently. This is a very catchy song about a girl who is hard to hold onto. Even while happily single, I need love songs.
2) Only the Sinner, Josh Bales--This song says that only the sinners and never the good, Jesus saves.
3) A Hymn for All the World, Josh Bales--This is a prayer for our brothers and sisters around the world. All of Josh's songs are simple, eloquent, and singable.
4) From the Inside Out, Hillsong United--We sang this at MFuge in Canada. My time at Fuge every year fills me up with rich, intense, beautiful worship songs.
5) Tell the World, Hillsong United--This simple commitment to 'tell the world that Jesus lives' was the soundtrack to our time in Canada. I will always picture our last night. 300 people. Fists pumping. Jumping. Dancing. Committing.
6) Carried to the Table, Leeland--Grace carries us where we don't belong, at the table with Jesus.
7) Sunday, Bebo Norman--Another love song. 'It just feels right, kissing you on a Sunday.'
8) Bring Me to Life, Bebo Norman--This has an odd driving rhythm. It is a call of dependence. If I am to live, Yahweh, you must bring me to life.
