"Lord I need you. Oh I need you. Every hour I need you." --Chris Tomlin (Lord I need you)
These are some of the lyrics from my new favorite song for the week. If you haven't heard the Passion 2012 CD, I would highly suggest listening to the whole thing. It's absolutely incredible. God has blessed the artists on the CD with their musical abilities, and their love for the God of the Universe truly shines through. As I listen to the CD, I feel the artists crying out to God. Their raw emotions allow me to put words to emotions I am feeling as I live my life on a daily basis. I am in desperate need of my God, every hour of every day. Christian music, like the Passion 2012 CD and other great Christian CDs, express feelings in such astounding ways, so unlike any other type of music. Instead of writing about the latest boy drama, party, or deep sorrow, Christian music allows the singer to be completely real with God. There are songs of joy, songs of sorrow, songs of calling out to God, and everything in between.
I leave you with these great words from "Forever Reign" on the Passion 2012 CD. Enjoy some refreshing, real Christian music this week!
"You are good, you are good, when there's nothing good in me...You are peace, you are peace when my fear is crippling...Oh I'm running to your arms. I'm running to your arms. The riches of your love will always be enough." --Kristian Stanfill (Forever Reign)
