I probably won’t do a Worshipful Wednesday post every week, but periodically, when I really need it, I might find a way to include worship videos here as a post. I hope you enjoy it. After the way this week started out and simply the way the last few weeks have gone, today I’m purposefully trying to press in and spend time in the Lord’s presence. What better way to do that than worship?
It all started with today’s musical itch, just the song in my head today, and I took that to my iTunes and told it to create a playlist. So, these tunes today are from our personal collection and are what I often listen to and enjoy.
Glory, by Phil Wickham
This was the song in my head today. I didn’t remember what song it was and had to have my teenager find it and pull it up for me. This is a new one for us, or pretty new; I found it when searching for chord sheets for live worship at church.
More, by Matthew West
We Won’t Be Shaken, by Building 429
Shake, by MercyMe
Move, by MercyMe
Good Morning, by Mandisa
I’ve been starting my mornings with that last one. It’s perfect, don’tcha think? I set it as my alarm tone on my phone and have been remembering to take my phone to bed. I set a rule for myself, that I can’t hit the snooze until the song is over. By then, I need to get up and use the restroom, and by the time I’ve done that I tend to realize that now I’m up and I can and should stay up.
There’s something about happy praise music that helps me. It might be that I get infected with the beat and start dancing, and it might be that dancing starts some chemical processes in a body that causes all the depressive chemicals to leave. There might be a scientific explanation, but I firmly believe that most of those “scientific explanations” are simply the visible evidence, the manifestation – if you will, of what is a spiritual truth: God inhabits the praises of His people!
What are you listening to this week?
