A cure for the Monday morning blues…

Well, it’s been a long time since I did a “Songs from my iPod” post – possibly because I haven’t HAD an iPod for about 2 years. Now, of course, I have my wonderful MotoDroid and can get Pandora. I’ve also got an awesome BlueTooth-to-radio device by Motorola that my Beloved Husband got me, so I can truly enjoy music wherever I go.

I’ve set up a Christian “station” for myself on Pandora, and here’s what blessed me this morning:

Rebecca St. James’ “Song of Love,” from her worship GOD album:

Jesus, King of my heart
Father, my peace and my light
Spirit, the joy of my soul You are

Jesus, to you none compare
Father, I rest in Your care
Spirit, the hope of my heart You are

CHORUS:
The heavens declare You are God
And the mountains rejoice
The oceans cry Alleluia
As we worship You Lord
For this is our Song of Love

Jesus, You save my soul
I’ll thank You forevermore
Jesus, the love of my life You are

CHORUS

Jesus, I am in awe
Of the love that You have shown
Jesus, how precious You are to me

CHORUS

Paul Coleman’s “The One Thing,” from his Let It Go album:

Here I am
In a river of questions
Can I pour my heart out to a listening ear?
I see this life
Its valley’s and mountains
And I think of all the roads that brought me here

I’ve questioned my reasons
The life I’m living
I’ve questioned my ability
To judge wrong from right
I’ve questioned all the things that I’ve ever called certain
My race, my religion, my country, my mind

But the one thing I don’t question is you
You really love me like you say you do
You really love me like you say you do
Hold me
Hold me

I’ve questioned significance
Meaning and relevance
Does the work I’m doing really matter at all?
Well I’ve questioned my friendships
Alliance, dependence
Who will still be here when I fall?

Only one thing doesn’t change
Only one thing stays the same
All I know at the end of the day is your love remains

And finally, Third Day’s song, “Medley” (from their Offerings II: All I Have To Give album), has a snippet from the old classic, “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus” –

O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!

Refrain:
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
O’er us sin no more hath dominion—
For more than conquerors we are!

His Word shall not fail you—He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell!

So, there you go. If you are wearied by Monday and long for the weekend, remind yourself of the true and everlasting Sabbath Rest we have in Jesus. Lay your burdens down at His feet; trust in His strength and promises. “And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,” and He will hold us while we sing Him our Song of Love.

May God richly bless you today as you trust and follow Him!
