O God, my heart is quiet and confident. No wonder I can sing your praises! Psalm 57:7
“Control seems preferable to what we typically think of as its opposite—chaos. But I want to suggest that the opposite of control is not chaos. It is trust, and trust is far preferable to control. We want to control because we fear the outcome of letting God be in control. We fear we won’t be taken care of, won’t have what we need, or will be taken advantage of. But trying to be in control is futile, because in reality there is very little that we can control.”
― Dave Samples, Messed Up Men of the Bible
I love confident hopeful songs because they inspire me! I look for them everywhere, and when I find them, I create posts for them on my blogs or playlists on Youtube.
There is just something threaded throughout a song like that. There is hope, yes, but can I suggest that there is also “a trust in God” that has been born in a crucible of some kind? You see, I don’t think you get up one day and decide to write a song that will inspire hope just because you want to. I don’t think it works like that.
