Cd Rotations.

After talking with a friend this morning about our favorite oldies albums, I got to thinking how–as of late–there have been a few cd’s that have been rotating in and out of my cd player. I can’t really tell you why these three specific cd’s, seeing as they have nothing in common such as music style, but I have been enjoying their songs (and lyrics I know).

Music in the soul can be heard by the universe. ~Lao Tzu

Here are the cd’s:

1. Cindy Morgan, Listen. I initially got the cd out a few weeks ago to listen to a specific song titled, “The Master’s Hand.” I ended up listening to the whole cd, reading the lyrics and just taking in the message that God is love and I am in need of Him. A few other favorite songs are “Need”, “The Promise” and my favorite jazz style song, “The Say It’s Love (‘Stars’)”. If I ever still desired to create a song to sing at say a Saturday night coffee shop, it would have to be something like that one. 🙂

2. David Crowder*Band, Illuminate. In all honesty, I did not like the band when it first came out in the early 2000’s. Now that their band days are ending and they move on to different areas of ministry, I am very sad. They became one of my favorite bands. Their worship was never defined. They reminded me a lot of the UK worship band of the 1990’s called Delirious? (The question mark is part of the band name. 🙂 ) A few of my favorite songs on this cd are “No One like You”, “Only You” and “Deliver Me.” Mom also has David Crowder’s book called, Praise Habit: Finding God in Sunsets and Sushi. She just finished it, so now I want to read it. Whether it is this cd or book, or any others by David Crowder*Band, I am sure you will enjoy every minute of it!

3. My Utmost of His Highest: The Covenant. This cd is by a set of various artists who brought songs to reflect on Oswald Chamber’s book, My Utmost for His Highest. It is something I listen to when I am reflecting or just want something relaxing to fall asleep to at night. It starts off with my favorite song recorded by Be Be Winans called, “All of Me.” The songs seem to flow after that with meaningful lyrics and the cd cover gives quotes to the songs with some of Oswald Chamber’s writings. A few other favorite songs are “Psalm 121”, “Through All the Years” and one by Michael W. Smith titled, “Someday (Set the Children Free).” That song always gets tears to my eyes. It is a very encouraging cd and would be a great gift for someone you know that is in need of encouragement. Just add Oswald’s book with it and the set is complete. 🙂

Maybe you have heard these cd’s before…maybe not. Music still is such a big part of my life, even as frustrating as it is most times where I cannot pick out words or the beat. But it is music. Do you have any albums that you find yourself returning to?

    We, our prayer group here in Alabama, are praying for you. I have kept up with you through Myrna who probably gets information as she is working in the store. I wanted to tell you about some music that is so heavenly sounding. It is Ruth Fazal and she has several albums. Any of them are tremendously comforting. She is a violinist and she sings as well. She writes her own music. I think it would be a comfort to you. I think Amazon carries her music.
    I also got a lot of comfort

    I was trying to say, in that last partial sentence that Psalm 32:7 is also comforting.

      Hello Suzy! I did not know you were in AL now. Thanks for posting. I have never heard Ruth Fazal before but I will check out demos on Amazon (probably can find Youtube videos too I imagine). And thank you for the Psalm. I have been reading a lot in the Psalms these past few weeks. I will read this verse tonight when I get into bed. 🙂 Thank you for your prayers!

    A number of Rich Mullins songs sometimes come to mind and yes, also good ole’ Michael W. Smith:)

      Yes…Rich Mullins, Out of the Grey, MWS, Keith Green. Just amazing music…these were just I found that I listen to most recent–but even now they have changed. 😀 I have been enjoying Jaci Velasquez (first album, yeah like a 1996 LOL) and a bit of Michelle Tumes today as I write. 😀
