Music of my heart

Lots of music on my heart today

Sometimes a verse will get stuck in my heart and I’ll sing it all day, sometimes a whole song will rock my world.

A verse in a song that may be written about something else will hit my heart about something completely different than what the writer may have intended. A perfect example would be the song “sunshine of my life” by Stevie Wonder. It reminds me of my Pean. She is truly the sunshine of my life. I’d never make it through life without her. Many times, she has been the one thing in life that I have clung to, or she was the one thing that got me through the minutes, even seconds of the day.

You Are The Sunshine Of My Life
That's Why I'll Always Stay Around
You Are The Apple Of My Eye
Forever You'll Stay In My Heart

Or the song “This Road”.

There is the chorus and the ending that always hit me… I think that I can’t get through anything if I don’t have God. He pulls me close and gets through anything, especially when I have to deal with people that come and go in my life (and that happens in all stages of life, but somehow it doesn’t ever seem to get easier.

Oh they say this road, it's a hard one, it's a dark one.
But if you promise to stay close,
we can take this, we can shake this.

I'm losing a friend, we began at the end.
I wish it weren't so, but I've gotta go.

I love this song, Everlasting God! The first time I ever heard it was at Revival Tabernacle on the Detroit Mission Trip 2011.

So many things that come into our lives… and even though I know I am not supposed to fear, I feel like I am constantly afraid, and the enemy uses that against me…

The Lord's my light and salvation
Whom shall I fear? Of whom shall I be afraid

There are so many songs by NeedtoBreathe it’s hard to pick one because so many echo my heart.

I love Shine On…

I actually love this whole song… it’s like the modern version of “this little light of mine”

But this one part:
Shine on Shine on
And onto something new its long and overdue
I will remember you
Shine on shine on
And let the other's see you've got your victory
Will you remember me

I love this because I can relate with it so much, I love so much and people are etched on my heart, some burned so permanently that it feels like my heart will never be the same (probably because it won’t) but I always wonder if people will remember me…
This one… Able by Needtobreathe. There have been so many times especially lately that I wasn’t able to make it a minute without tears or have the strength to take a single step forward or raise my hands to the God in heaven who is worthy to be praised. But in those times, I just reached out for help, from God Himself and for people to pray for me. In that time, I had to trust God when I couldn’t feel Him, I had to reach out and do something hard, even if I didn't feel able on my own, but I always know that when I am weak He is strong.  2 Cor 12:9 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. (NLT)

For Good from the musical Wicked is amazing!  I love this song so much!  Today, my daughter posted about it, and I listened to it and I found myself sobbing.  Which I cried the first time I heard it.  SO GOOD!


Im limited
Just look at me - Im limited
And just look at you
You can do all I couldn't do, Glinda
So now it's up to you
For both of us - now it's up to you...
I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you...
Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good
It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made from what I learned from you
You'll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend...
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
Because I knew you
I have been changed for good
And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I've done you blame me for
But then, I guess we know
There's blame to share
And none of it seems to matter anymore
Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a bird in the wood
Who can say if I've been
Changed for the better?
I do believe I have been
Changed for the better
(Glinda): And because I knew you...
(Elphaba): Because I knew you...
(Both):Because I knew you...I have been changed for good...

  There are so many songs that just touch my heart, music is a gift from God when we don’t have the words to express ourselves.

Eph 5:19-20 19 singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts. 20 And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. NLT
