Well it finally happened. God spoke. Just when I didn’t think it possible he did it again. Surprised me from left field. Hit me when I didn’t expect it. Didn’t just hit me, but laid me out. It was a one punch knockout – God style.
And is par for the course for me it was “rock-n-roll” that saved my life. The part that “secular” music has played in my life far outways Christian music’s influence. It is not even close. There is authenticity in those that choose to do their art outside of the confines or limits of the Christian marketplace that inspires and moves me.
I downloaded the new Coldplay album from iTunes last week and as I listened to it, I couldn’t stop hearing God speak to me through almost every song. One track in particular, track number 4 entitled “Fix You”, ministered to me like no other. There is a promise in that song from God to each of us. Other tracks like “What If”, “X & Y” and “The Hardest Part” also spoke to my heart. If you want a good listen and if you have ever experienced love, loss or grief – you will find restoration in these songs.
