Day 10/30

Day Ten - Songs you listen to when you are happy, sad, bored, hyped, mad.


I actually tend to sing when I'm happy.  And they are songs that I make up to tunes that I know.  So it might be to Happy Birthday, Amazing Grace, or what ever is on repeat in my head. 
 
I would say that I do tend to listen to entire albums at a time.  I think I might be old skool like that.  My favorite right now is Leaving Eden by Brandon Heath


Leaving Eden

I love how Christian artist are so translucent with their music.  You can hear their life struggles and what is surrounding them.  It's quite beautiful.  A struggling musician told me one time that you should listen to an album from beginning to end because there's a story being told in the way the songs are placed.  I can hear that in this album. 

Here's the song list

1. Leaving Eden
2. Your Love
3. The Light In Me
4. Only Water 

5. Stolen 

6. Might Just Save Your Life 

7. It's Alright 

8. It's No Good To Be Alone 

9. Now More Than Ever 

10. The One 

11. As Long As I'm Here


This is a great album if you're happy, sad, bored, whatever.  I love the line from Leaving Eden that says "My Doctor can't do a thing for how I feel.  Feels like I'm leaving Eden." It reminds me how as much as the meds have helped while I was suffering from depression, there are spiritual aches that no doctor of the science of this world can address and correct.  And in those moments, we have to remember that as we leave Eden we are heading home to Our Father. 

I could go through every single song and tell you the lines I love, but maybe you should check it out for yourself and have some worship time with Jesus and Brandon.
