Listen To Our Hearts

I’m not one to lack what to say most times and I like people who are bold to say their mind and speak up. In fact my husband asked me one day, do I have to have an opinion about everything?😀

But sometimes I do lack words. At such times I get tired, tongue-tied and helpless before God. I just keep quiet and listen to music. I play one particular song endearing to my heart continuously and repeatedly for a long time, sometimes through out the day while I go deep into the spirit of the song. There I open my heart and communicate with God through that song. I just let my heart do the talking to the only One who can understand it.

Sometimes a few tears roll down, a few words as I just soak in the presence of God through the music. During these times, I’m not really in a talking mood because my whole mind is in that song. And as God speaks I respond. When I’m finished, when the experience comes to an end, I return to my usual dailies broken, healed, happy and greatly strengthened by God. I return a changed person.

I totally and unreservedly enjoy music, it is one medium through which God has spoken to me on several occasions. I love music and I listen to every single word, every sound, beat or drum in the music. I dissect the music and just enjoy the wonders of how each instrument, each ad-lib and each chorus harmonises into a great song. I try to understand the deep meaning behind the words, the rise and falls, the tone of the hunger and thirst for God in the voice of the singer. It’s a powerful tool that needs to be harnessed well when in the hands of the right person.

There are a couple of songs that takes me deep into this experience. This powerfully worded song by United Pursuit is one of them. (Check my previous post here). Check it there and let it draw you closer to God.

Finally, God speaks through so many things around us if we open our hearts and listen. For me, music is one of those ways.

“So listen to our hearts
Hear our spirits sing
A song of praise that flows
From those You have redeemed
We will use the words we know
To tell You what an awesome God You are
But words are not enough
To tell You of out love
So listen to our hearts”
(Listen To Our Hearts – Lyrics by Geoff Moore)

From Head To The Heart

This is a beautiful wonderful song by United Pursuit that inspires my heart a lot.
Please enjoy.
I open up to You
This love that makes me new
Oh, may my heart receive
This love that carries me
From the head to the heart
You take me on a journey
Of letting go
And getting lost in You
From the head to the heart
You take me on a journey
Of letting go
And getting lost in You
My heart is open wide
I will receive your light (ey ey ey)
You give me faith like a child
In you, my heart runs wild
‘Cause there’s no shame
In looking like a fool
When I give You what I can’t keep
To take a hold of You
There’s no shame
In looking like a fool
When I give You what I can’t keep
To take a hold of You
More than words, more than good ideas
I found Your love in the open fields
More than words, more than good ideas
I found Your love in the open fields
More than words, more than good ideas (ey ey ey)
I found Your love in the open fields
More than words, more than good ideas
I found Your love in the open fields

Even If – MercyMe

I was listening to my favourite gospel radio station Star 88.3 this morning, when, this beautiful song immediately caught my attention. I searched for the lyrics on YouTube and found it. It’s truly inspiring. It seems as if God is preparing my heart, in accordance to the prayer I posted some days ago on Season of Hope: Down the Foggy Road.

Please listen to it, its very reassuring. Share it with someone and encourage them that no matter what, God is always on our side.

They say sometimes you win some
Sometimes you lose some
And right now, right now I’m losing bad
I’ve stood on this stage night after night
Reminding the broken it’ll be alright
But right now, oh right now I just can’t

It’s easy to sing
When there’s nothing to bring me down
But what will I say
When I’m held to the flame
Like I am right now

I know You’re able and I know You can
Save through the fire with Your mighty hand
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone

They say it only takes a little faith
To move a mountain
Well good thing
A little faith is all I have, right now
But God, when You choose
To leave mountains unmovable
Oh give me the strength to be able to sing
It is well with my soul

Chorus
I know You’re able and I know You can
Save through the fire with Your mighty hand
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone
I know the sorrow, and I know the hurt
Would all go away if You’d just say the word
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone

You’ve been faithful, You’ve been good
All of my days
Jesus, I will cling to You
Come what may
‘Cause I know You’re able
I know You can

(Chorus)

It is well with my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul

A Jolly Merry Feast Ruined

img_1932

A perfect day for picnic
The table is set
Friends are chatty
The music is groovy
Midday is dawning

Suddenly,

You loudly growl and grumble
In deafening thundering rumble
They look up to behold
Your cloudy face once sunlit and sunny
Turning dark, grey and stormy
Displaying swift sparks of lightning
Like the king of the sky, you don’t hesitate
As you release your drenching showers
They scamper and scurry for covers
Hurdled under some makeshift shade
They stand or sit but stare and ponder-

A jolly merry feast, ruined
