Sometimes you need encouragement. More than any other kind of art, music can lift the soul. A couple nights ago, I (Tim) needed my spirits lifted. I was assembling diapers and listening to music on my Ipod. The first song that came up was “Horizon” by 38th Parallel. They are an obscure band that broke up after one album but it was an excellent album. I won’t quote the lyrics but the song basically reminds us of God’s promises. It was what I needed. Another song I always listen to when I need a pick me up is “The Sun Will Shine Again” by Rob Rock, another obscure artist. That one reminds me that no matter what happens, the sun will rise tomorrow. I have never found a song that lifts my spirits in the same way. The theme that both songs have in common is God’s promise that He will be with us. Not that life will be easy but that He will be there to walk us through.
Please leave comments on songs that encourage you.
