Why Worship Songs
As I was driving my son to an eye appointment yesterday I was feeling a little down. There has been so much of a change in everyone’s life in such a short span of time due to all that is going on in the world today.
So, as I was driving, I remembered a CD that a dear friend had loaned to me. It was the new ‘I Can Only Imagine’ CD The Best Of Mercy Me ~ Worship Songs – Mercy Me.
I popped it in and the first song was the title song ‘I Can Only Imagine’. Since this song has come out, I have loved it. Every time I listen to the lyrics I get emotional and chills. The words, I feel, were definitely inspired by the Holy Spirit!
These are my favorite words of the song…
Surrounded by Your glory
What will my heart feel
Will I dance for You, Jesus
Or in awe of you be still
Will I stand in Your presence
Or to my knees will I fall
Will I sing hallelujah
Will I be able to speak at all
When I hear these words being sung, I can’t help but ‘imagining‘ how heaven will be. It brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it!
Worship Music ~ Mercy Me
All of the songs on this CD are so powerful. I especially love the song entitled “God With Us“. It is because it speaks of the Holy name Emmanuel. Emmanuel actually means ‘God with us’ and is incidentally the name of one of our sons. – I love that song!
The other worship songs are just as beautiful. There is Greater, Here With Me, Word of God Speak, Move, Flawless (another favorite), Shake, The Hurt & the Healer, Bring The Rain, Homesick, Dear Younger Me, and another version of I Can Only Imagine.
They make me want to just be in the presence of our Lord and worship Him. When you do this you can’t help but forget the turmoil in the world today.
Worship songs are Powerful
We may not be able to gather in community, or in the walls of our church. But, we can gather in spirit and praise and bring an intentional joy to our daily moments and to our families.
My whole point of this post is simply this. In a world where there is so much discontentment and discouragement, we need to look for ways to bring a little joy into our lives and heart.
And what better way than to be listening to and singing songs of praise to our God! It has the power to lift our spirits and to cause joy to well up within your whole heart and being.
So crank up your worship and praise music on whatever device you have around. Grab your children, grab your husband and start to praise God with your whole being. Raise your hands and dance around.
The kids absolutely love it when I do this. The boys may roll their eyes, but I know they love it!
It may be a little uncomfortable at first, but I guarantee everyone involved will love it and talk about it for days to come.
If you are a loner, that doesn’t exclude you. Jump in your car, crank it up and drive down a road singing praise to God at the top of your lungs.
