I have a massive bucket list of things to do. Realistically I probably won't ever finish it. Well, tonight I added and crossed one more thing off my list. I'm on the radio, in an actual interview! So cool! Thanks to WBGL for this opportunity. I'm praying it helps many people. :)
Here's my take on the show:
Wow! Every song is just what helped me survive the months following my miscarriage.
Tree 63: Blessed Be Your Name: I saw this band in concert before they were famous, when I was still in high school. If I knew then how much their music would mean to me over the years, I would've kept their autographs! Every blessing, no matter how painful, I will ALWAYS turn back to praise. Blessed be the name of the LORD!
Your Love Never Fails: I'm so thankful for this! Otherwise He would've given up on me long before William's birthday.
I Can Just Be Me: Laura Story: Her book What if Your Blessings Come Through Raindrops REALLY helped. I love her so much. <3
Toby Mac: Get Back Up: It's never too late. We can always get up. Nothing lasts forever (thank goodness!)
Mercy Me: Word of God Speak: I prayed this many times. Help me be still, show me your majesty, it's so hard to accept the wait.
Citizen Way: Should've Been Me: I don't think I've heard this before, but I like it. :)
Casting Crowns: Courageous: This song was released about the same time we found out we were expecting. Every time I heard it I prayed for Shaun to have that courage. It took losing our baby, but he has it now. What a blessing!
Francesca Battistelli: Strangely Dim: Oh, how this song helped. I loved to worship to it following William's loss (I still do!). When we're seeking God, we aren't focusing on our circumstances. His power holds us up.
Chris Tomlin: Holy is the Lord: I like this song. Not one of my favorite rocking out songs, but it's a great worship song.
Newsboys: Something Beautiful: I love everything the Newsboys ever wrote. Love it all. This song reminds me to enjoy the beautiful moments in life. We have so many, and if we just rush through life we miss them.
Matthew West: Forgiveness: I had to learn to forgive God for taking William, and forgive myself. I struggled to accept there was nothing I could do about it. I didn't do anything wrong. God has a plan, and this was part of if.
Kutless: What Faith Can Do: If I had a dollar for every time I sang this song, well, I wouldn't be working where I am! Faith can do wonderful things.
Mandisa: Overcomer: This song is fairly new, but man it helped during those last few months leading to William's birthday. Fix your eyes on Jesus, and he will help you overcome ANYTHING. You're an overcomer! Don't give up! God is holding you. How cool is that?! Note: I love the fact that T-Mac is referenced in it. :)
Royal Tailor: Remain: Another new song. I like it! :)
Sanctus Real: Whatever You're Doing: Yup, this sums up so much. It's hard to surrender to God, but it's SOOOO worth it.
Thanks for listening, if you were able. If not, thanks for reading! :)
