Thursday Thirteen #10

In addition to all those sappy love songs I listed last week, my favorite music also happens to be contemporary Christian and worship songs. Over the last nine years of my walk with Christ, they have inspired me and lifted my spirits during some pretty difficult seasons. They are God’s spoken word revealed through melodies, conveying deep thoughts and longings which I find difficult to put into words. They minister to my soul and point me back toward God when I’m lost in my own sorrows and struggles.

I have many of my favorites loaded onto my MP3 player, and whenever I listen to it each song takes me on a journey through different points in my faith. Times when I fully needed to depend on the Lord for every step I took, times of great growth. They are lyrical reminders of what God has brought me through and what He has done for me.

I love all the songs you listed! It was so good to be back home and to have KLove on the radio where you can hear one of those at least twice a day. Do you guys have Klove in Flordia? It's a wonderful station!
I LOVE the passion cds, they are all so amazing. Will and I went to a PAssion sponsored conference a few years ago and the praise and worship was so awesome. I love those cds so much.
I'm glad you had a good V-day. Will and I aren't huge celebrators either, but it was nice nonetheless. I look forward to hearing how you guys are doing!Sorry I've been a terrible about keeping up with blogs. Hopefully in the coming weeks I'll be a little better.
HAve a good weekend!
