Today’s post is something a little different! Instead of books, I want to talk about ten of the songs I have on repeat these days. Think of it like a random life update without getting into all the granular details. If you’ve been around Reviews From the Stacks for a while, then you know one of my hobbies is making playlists, and yes, I made one with these songs here. They’re taken from larger playlists that are my current go-tos. I’m going to share the line(s) from each song that I most resonate with and will link to each one on YouTube. Enjoy!
Have you ever missed somewhere that you’ve never been before?
I think I want answers / but what I really need is peace…I’m tired of waiting / but I’m afraid of how it’s gonna end / so I’m stuck here in between / bracing for bad news and hoping for a miracle
I don’t want this desert road / are you sure this is the plan that You have for me?…I don’t know where this is going / but I know who holds my hand / It’s not the path I would’ve chosen / but I’ll follow You to the end
I’m coming back to the heart of worship / and it’s all about You
I have prayed so many times to be strong / I stay here in the desert making circles in the sand / But You’re telling me that You’re the promised land
It’s nice to have a friend
Joy comes, tears fall / I’m learning there is beauty in it all
We will sing a new song / Let hallelujahs flow like a river / We’re coming back to life / Reaching towards the light / Your love is like springtime
Note to self: don’t let yourself worry quite as much / It’ll end up fine enough / It always has up until now / Something else, you should think of other people a little more / You shoulda thought of that before / Cause of everything you’ve written down / This is the first note that you wrote for someone else
What if who I hoped to be was always me? / And the love I fought to feel was always free?…What if where I tried to go was always here? / And the path I tried to cut was always clear?
What songs are you really enjoying this season?
