Posts Tagged ‘songs’

With listening to approximately 16 hours of music every day i am finding many great songs that speak to me when i not just hear them but listen to them. i’m actually in the process of creating a playlist of songs by categories thus when i’m sensing fear i have a category with songs that help me through the fear. If i’m feeling lost or overwhelmed then there are categories of songs for them as well. The possibilities are endless. Music today is filled with life experiences and direction from the word as to how to make sure that my every thought is taken captive to the word.

Today i’ll share a song titled Blessings and it stirs me up to look at what i off the cuff consider to be trials or problem circumstances when i reality they just may be the exact thing i needed.

i have included the You Tube link for easy listening and i’m including the lyrics with a comment or two about the significance of the words i’m hearing. And one last detail… i’m personalizing the lyrics to me.

i pray for blessings, i pray for peace
Comfort for family, protection while i sleep
i pray for healing, for prosperity
i pray for Your mighty hand to ease my suffering
And all the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love me way too much to give me lesser things

(Every time i hear these words i immediately reevaluate what i’m praying for and specifically i’m determining if i’m asking for my will or God’s will to be done based on my words.)

‘Cause what if your blessings come through rain drops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

(When i hear these words i look back over the years and realize how many things i have learned through tears and sleepless nights.)

i pray for wisdom, Your voice to hear
i cry in anger when i cannot feel You near
i doubt your goodness, i doubt your love
As if every promise from Your word is not enough
And all the while, You hear each desperate plea
And long that i’d have faith to believe

(When i hear these words they cause me to think on God’s mercy and Grace as i should know better than this but i have my moments, days and weeks.)

‘Cause what if your blessings come through rain drops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

When friends betray me
When darkness seems to win
i know that pain reminds this heart
That this is not,
This is not my home
It’s not my home

(This is where i am reminded of God’s love for me and my responsibility to love others as myself.)

‘Cause what if your blessings come through rain drops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near

What if my greatest disappointments or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy
What if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are your mercies in disguise

( With these words i am reminded that there is no doubt that the things i call trials are absolutely His mercies in disguise.?

That’s the basics of how i listen to my music and apply it to my life. Often i get a little more detailed and add scripture verses. Then there are times when i have to listen to the song over and over until it takes me to the place where i should be verses the distraction that has captured my mind.
