I go through phases with the music I listen to; my playlist usually contains 5 songs or so that I'll play over and over again for a period of time before I move onto a different artist or songs.
Plumb is currently my playlist, and there were far more than 5 songs in rotation. Plumb's sound appeals to me. The lyrics speak loudly. I am a lyric kind of person. I typically do not like a song just because of how it sounds, I listen to the words. It's the words - the lyrics - that usually will make or break a song for me. They tell a story of some sort; like a book but far more concise. Many times the lyrics are mysterious.
Apparently, I have been in an angsty mood. Several of the songs I gravitated towards speak towards pain, and sorrow. BUT, even amongst the sorrow, I found hope and redemption. So, I am thinking that my mood was a mixed bag: angsty, and hope filled. You know, the hope filled feeling is pretty amazing, because even when I am feeling sorrow, or that deep seeded gut-wrenching feeling of some sort of loss, well, that hope filled mindset over takes and makes that journey down the path of sadness not so overwhelming. That hope gives strength, and empowers. It says, "Hey, no matter what, the sorrow will decrease and maybe even go away completely. And, guess what? Wait on the Lord, and keep your hope in Him because that is the anchor. Not only that, God is using it for good." Knowing that brings peace. And oh, that redemption, well, that too is amazingly powerful. It doesn't allow room for hope to not brightly shine.
