Well we have arrived at day 7 and the start of a new week! Sorry for not posting over the weekend, with preaching on Sunday I completely forgot to post, don't worry though, today Im posting 3 songs for you to listen to and enjoy.
There are so many ways you can listen to christian music. iTunes has a Christian, Gospel and Religious genre and theres new albums being uploading all the time. You can pop into Glo or Faith Mission and pick up a CD (or order online). However, my favourite way of listening is using the kLove Christian radio app. You can download it on most phones, its based in America - there are encouraging stories, prayer and lots of music. I was listening this morning and they quoted from Psalm 95:1 - Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Christian music is all about the Joy that salvation brings, the hope that it brings and the steady rock that it is when we are in times of trouble.
The first song today is by Tenth Avenue North and called Empty my hands. I listened to this song quite a few times last week. Before preaching it can be quite a struggle, self-doubt and being self-critical, there is such a desire to do a good job but you can't help doubt your ability. This song speaks about giving it all over to God and letting him fill your heart with hope and focusing your mind on the finished work of Christ on the Cross.
The second song is by Lauren Daigle and called Trust in You! A song that speaks about when we don't get the answers we are looking for. Yet even in this, God knows what is good for us and knows what is coming our way. He has a perfect plan for each one of us, we just need to Trust
Third and finally today is by Brandon Heath and called Give me your eyes! We so often make decisions based on ourselves - we vote based on what we want, we give based on what we can get back, we live based on putting ourselves first. This song talks about what God see's and maybe, just maybe, if we had his eyes we would live in a different way.
Check back in tomorrow for more Christian Music
