Finding God in All Things

I was admittedly surprised by BadCatholic’s most recent post: 5 Reasons to Kill Christian Music.  As a lover of “Christian” music, at first I was offended, but he actually makes some valid points.  I would be overjoyed if all music really and truly glorified God as it should.
So I have this sometimes annoying tendency to automatically analyze everything I watch and listen to for deeper messages.  The positive side of this gift is that I am often able to discern God’s presence in secular music.  Therefore, I am making an adjustment to tunage Tuesday – I will post songs that are considered secular which have positive messages and could possibly convert hearts.  Since BadCatholic thinks that Marcus Mumford leads more people to sing God’s praises than Chris Tomlin (and I tend to agree with him), we’ll start with Mumford & Sons.  And if you haven’t had the pleasure of being introduced to this band, shame on your friends.  Their incredibly deep lyrics blow me away every time.

Ghosts That We Knew
You saw my pain, washed out in the rain
Broken glass, saw the blood run from my veins
But you saw no fault no cracks in my heart
And you knelt beside my hope torn apart
But the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
And we’ll live a long life
So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
Cause oh they gave me such a fright
But I will hold as long as you like
Just promise me we’ll be alright
So lead me back
Turn south from that place
And close my eyes to my recent disgrace
Cause you know my call
And we’ll share my all
And our children come, they will hear me roar
So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
Cause oh they gave me such a fright
But I will hold as long as you like
Just promise me that we’ll be alright
But hold me still bury my heart on the cold
And hold me still bury my heart next to yours
So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
Cause oh they gave me such a fright
And I will hold on with all of my might
Just promise me that we’ll be alright
But the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
And we’ll live a long life

      Honestly, this weekly song thing may turn into a Mumford & Sons fest… their music is just so good!
