Sometimes you just need quiet, contemplative music that takes a while to get going and isn’t in a hurry to end. As a believer it’s so refreshing when the self same songs are saturated in scripture and the transcendent beauty of knowing King Jesus whilst Chevrolet-ing through life on the planet (shoving one foot and laying down the other. Ha).
And so, I swim in young oceans for just a little while. In between paying jobs, and sitting to adjust to life on the other side of owning my art… And there being a brand spanking new Target I can literally walk to in 6 minutes. I don’t know why, but it’s those types of things that sometimes seem like too big or disorienting a change. And it hurls me backwards in time to three Mays ago, living at my aunt’s house and prepping my heart as best as I knew how to literally move across the continent. And sometimes it feels like I’m harping on the issue. Like surely by now, I should move on. But I don’t think that’s how life works. I think periodically you have to sit again from your new perspective and reflect on the same old ebenezers of your personal history. Just to see again that God is faithful.
So if you’re at all like me ~ or even just with Easter approaching, you need some contemplative audible art to carry the thoughts through your heart ~ I recommend sitting with Young Oceans.
