See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. (1 John 3:1a)
Hello Friends! Today we are praising God that our family remained safe throughout Hurricane Sandy’s landfall. The wind was so strong. I couldn’t believe the force with which it seemed to smash into our house, rattling the windows and making the whole structure shake. During the more frightening moments I sat with the boys and we talked about our strong God, the one who creates and controls even the most formidable of storms (Jer 10:13). Once we’d agreed upon God’s might (“He BIG!” was Brenn’s determination : ) we talked about how this great God loves us. That we are held in his hands and cared for as precious children (Is 41:10). What a wonderful truth! I hope that you are reminded of this great love as you listen to these songs.
Liz and I have come to a conclusion about our playlist posts. We think perhaps 10 songs might be too many, especially considering the average commute to work is only 25.4 minutes. So, this will be our last 10 song playlist post. No worries, we will continue posting music, we’ll just shorten them to 5 song playlists. To soften the blow, we will be rolling out combination playlist posts (e.g. all of the songs in Songs About Jesus will be gathered into one playlist) and eventually we will make a master playlist containing all of our songs. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
And as far as the love of God is concerned: Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? . . . No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:35, 37–39)
