Anyway, as I worked out this morning, I was listening to my current playlist and it made me think about all the songs that have such a special place in my heart because of the truths they remind me about God during a particular time in my life. Some of these are pretty old, so it'll date me. Here's to all who have music as their love language.
No Eye Has Seen ~ Michael W. Smith and Amy Grant (freshman year of college)
Breathe In Me ~ Michael W. Smith (junior year of college)
Grown Up Christmas List ~ Amy Grant (college)
Redeemer ~ Nicole Mullen (right before Ray was a year old)
Rescue ~ Desperation Band (late 2005 very early 2006)
Healing Is In Your Hands ~ Christy Nockels (September 2010)
Each of these songs are undeniable evidence of God's faithfulness during some of the hardest times of my life......including a time when I felt so far from God I thought I'd never go to church again. But knowing how he made me, I met a girl in college that loved Michael W. Smith and that second song filled my heart in a way I won't ever forget.
As I look at this list, I can see how I was obviously pursued through the years. Jesus is nothing if not relentless in his desire to capture our hearts. And that, more than anything else, is a reason to be thankful.
Breathe In Me ~ Michael W. Smith
undoubtedly his greatest song ever
