Ugly Hearts

Sometimes the reasons why we don’t like someone else show that our heart is uglier than the person’s shortcomings.

Now Listening: Rivers & Robots

I just discovered Rivers & Robots an indie worship band from England. I love the calm sound. Perfect for a day in, writing or just staring out the window, curled up in a chair with a hot cup of tea.

I’m still exploring all their albums, but here’s one of my favourite’s so far.

 

What new band’s have you discovered?

Now Listening: King of my Heart

Sometimes you come across a song just when you need it.

After a series of disappointing events, not major life changing, but the accumulation of disappointments was beginning to get me, and I found myself questioning why God wouldn’t just let me have a break. It felt like most times in His quest to make us more like Son, Jesus Christ, he forgets that we need a break from the trials.

Does everything have to be so hard? Are there some good things that come easy?

Last Sunday the choir in church sang this song and as I sang along, I remembered, remembered that God is wiser and bigger and stronger, I remembered that He loves me, I remembered all the many blessings He has given me, I remembered how past disappointments have turned out to be blessings in disguise. And with each verse I sang, I felt my heavy heart become lighter.

This will be my anthem even though the storms of life rage around me.

 

God is good and He’ll never let me down.
