Songs in the Night...

Sometimes night doesn't always mean nighttime. It means dark times, hard times, overwhelming times, times of questioning and wondering why. During these times, I often ask the Lord to give me a song, a promise that I can hold on to. Music is a big thing for me. The words and music of songs often express what my lips cannot. I wanted to share a few of the songs that God has used in my life to encourage me and keep me going. It is amazing what choosing to worship in the middle of hard, sad times does for your perspective & attitude. I hope they will be songs during your "nights" as well.
