Tunesday Tuesday: Spiritual Song

 
We all need a little music in our lives. A good song can answer a question, soothe the soul and provide an escape. It can recall a memory in the most vivid detail and evoke the most intense feelings.
 
 โ€œMusic is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common.โ€ -Sarah Dessen
 
We created Tunesday Tuesday to do just that, bring people together through music.
 
 
 We will designate a theme, and hope that you will share a song that embodies said theme for you. Post the video for the song, an audio clip, the lyrics- however you want to do it. Then, write a little something about why this song captures the week’s theme and link up your post here with us!

 to find out what the theme is for the week!

Next week’s theme will be…

Love the Lyrics!
 

I don’t really listen to many Christian radio stations. I have one or two on my radio pre-sets, but mostly because I ran out of other stations to fill the buttons and I figured I wouldn’t accidentally flip to something completely inappropriate for my kids if I filled the remaining buttons with those. I have nothing against that genre, just have never really gotten into it. As far as music at church, mine is pretty traditional and we sing hymns during the service on Sundays. So I had to think about this theme a bit…

As I thought about songs that had to do with God or faith, the first one that came to mind was this one:

Rascal Flatts – Bless the Broken Road

This song rings true for me and I think speaks a lot to my beliefs. I have had broken roads and trials to go through. But I truly believe they were God leading me to his plan; to something better. 

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

I didn’t feel like I was quite done with this theme, even though I had settled on this song. I kept tossing the idea of spiritual or inspirational songs around in my head. I knew there was something in there that spoke to me and my faith. Something about not being perfect, but still being loved by God. Something about needing grace. Then I heard this song on the radio in the car…

Miranda Lambert – Heart Like Mine

I ain’t the kind you take home to mama 
I ain’t the kind to wear no ring 
Somehow I always get stronger 
When I’m on my second drink 

Even though I hate to admit it 
Sometimes I smoke cigarettes 
The Christian folks say I should quit it 
And I just smile and say “God Bless” 

Cause I heard Jesus He drank wine 
And I bet we’d get along just fine 
He could calm a storm and heal the blind 
And I bet He’d understand a heart like mine 

Daddy cried when he saw my tattoo 
But said he loved me anyway 
My brother got the brains of the family 
So I thought I’d learn to sing 

Cause I heard Jesus He drank wine 
And I bet we’d get along just fine 
He could calm a storm and heal the blind 
And I bet He’d understand a heart like mine 

I’ll fly away from it all one day 
And I’ll fly away 


These are the days that I will remember 
When my name’s called on a roll 
He’ll meet me with two long-stemmed glasses 
And make a toast to me coming home 

Cause I heard Jesus He drank wine 
And I bet we’d get along just fine 
He could calm a storm and heal the blind 
And I bet He’d understand 
Understand a heart like mine 
Oh yes He would
