as much as i adore books (ON MY BOOKCASE) i also love music. 

i usually have music going all day long.  maybe its a fear of silence yes!

i have just “listening” music – music for the background but i also have intentional worship music that i reserve for times when i am having time with God.  music really speaks to my heart and often i will find in a season that “God gives me a song”.  COME TO ME by Bethel on the LOFT SESSIONS album is such a song for me.  it is a beautiful way that God speaks to me and i cherish music so much because of it.  Often a song will teach my heart truth, will realign my thinking and help me to fix my eyes upon Jesus.  I try and reserve some worship music just for worship times so that i’m not over familiar with it and so that it still stirs my heart instead of just being an ear worm.

 

 

 

on my iphone i have a couple of playlists:

  • housegroup worship – mostly bethel, passion, hillsong, jesus culture songs
  • favs – which is a worship mix that i listen to at night – more wind down worship
  • sleep – Olafur Arnalds, Michael Giacchiono (the Lost composer) and the Bethel WITHOUT WORDS
  • background – a mix of bethel, passion, jesus culture, florence + the machine, hothouse flowers, gungor, stan walker, elevation church, kim walker smith, united pursuit
  • worship – this is a mix of every worship song i have on my ipod (over 500+ songs!) and i sometimes put it on random during a worship time.  i has both fast and slower songs and i love how it mixes sometimes to bring a real freshness in a worship time.

 

i actually listen to spotify more during the day – love spotify!  i have a worship playlist and a christmas playlist (already!) and a kids playlist and one for new songs so i can trial them and then pop them on my worship list.  i love that spotify suggests new artists – have made some great discoveries through it!

 

i also regularly listen to podcasts and esp like listening to tim keller, the river, mark driscoll, christine caine, judah smith, and jud wilhite.  Tullian Tchividjian is new to my list and love his series’ through Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church
