This is my ideal playlist for a Sabbath afternoon nap...which I'm already needing.
1. C.S. Lewis by Brooke Fraser: "'Cause my comfort would prefer for me to be numb, and avoid the impending birth of who I was born to become." We have a purpose - an Ephesians 2:10 to-do list.
2. Healed by Nichole Nordeman: I don’t really think we truly understand how lost we are without God. Chaotic, weak, and orphaned.
3. Hallelujah by Bethany Dillon: I wish this chorus was true for me. Sometimes I let the mountains in front of me block my view of God.
4. Galatians 2:20 by Candi Pearson: I love Galatians. I grew up a “church kid” and I believed God was rules. I’m so glad I learned He is freedom from the rules. Really.
5. Psalm 145 by Shane and Shane: “the Lord is gracious and slow to anger; He is rich in love. He is good to all” That slow to anger part comes in handy on most days.
6. Come To Me by Jill Paquette: This is song from the perspective of God. “And once in a while is not enough to show to Me what you call love” God wants to have a passionate love affair with us – do we want the same?
7. Be Still My Soul sung by Lisbeth Scott: I heard her sing this on an episode of Alias. My soul can be shaky at times and I lack faith. He is faithful even then.
8. Hold On by Nichole Nordeman: When I walk into Wal-Mart, I always find myself staring at people and wondering about their stories. Are they struggling, scared, worried, frustrated, or hurting? Love finds you in all those places.
9. Come Thou Fount sung by Sara Groves: One of the best songs ever written in my humble opinion. “Prone to wander…prone to leave the God I love.” I love God, but that feeling is not enough. Obedience is hard.
10. Grace by Saving Jane: We fumble with the gift of our free will.
