Music for the Soul

Let me warn you-stay away from those pity party love songs. Do not drown yourself in sappy country songs about being cheated on, him being a better man, or the one that got away. Every now and then it's ok, but control yourself. Stay away from crying to the sounds of whining violins, the acoustic melodies of "your songs" and nostalgic playlists. Nothing good will come of it. Nothing. Encompass your ears in truth-God's truth.
Here is a list of songs that I have found comfort in. Yes, many of them have been accompanied by floods of tears but the messages bring promise and comfort from my God. As you listen, stretch your arms out and allow the music to bring you closer to your Father and fully into His presence. Let them take you away on a peaceful vacation from your hurt, your pain and your fears.

Here's my top 20 songs. I titled this playlist "Thy Will Be Done" on my iPhone. May it bless you.
