I can relate to what Joyce said earlier this week about pick JUST ONE worship song that's my favorite - but I love so many?!!
We feel this way because music speaks the language of our hearts and it engages us. We experience music.
But I'm not a musician, not a gifted singer, not entrenched in the world of music. Perhaps it's because of this that I've found that it's the simple songs that I come back to repeatedly.
Those simple worship choruses, especially the ones singing my love to the Father, are the ones I come back to again and again. There have been countless mornings when I've stolen away to that treasured time alone, and began singing those simple songs; either from a heart filled with love and gratitude, or when I've felt nothing and chose to sing as an act of will. Either way, it's to those simple songs that I return time and time again.
It's during those times alone that sometimes a really cool thing has happened. It's as if God's used those simple choruses to quiet down my spirit and make me aware of His presence. I've been overcome with a tangible sense of His presence and His joy, that feeling of peace permeating me and that all is right with the world. In that awareness, sometimes I've stopped singing and began to laugh, or became silent in my awe of His greatness, or quietly began to whisper words of love and adoration to my great God.
Here are links to a few of those simple songs that I managed to find on youtube:
I love you Lord
Father I adore you
You're worthy of my praise
What about you, do you have some simple choruses that you find have captured your heart?
