Alright, so I have decided that I draw closer to Jesus through melodies. Some songs just have THAT chord progression//note sequence, allowing me to feel God right next to me.
In my church, this month’s closing chorus goes like this:
Jesus, draw me close, closer Lord, to You.
Let the world around me fade away.
Jesus, draw me close, closer, Lord, to You,
For I desire to worship and obey.
The melody of that song, just…gets me. I feel connected to the words and the music; turning my attention to Christ.
I tried to find the version that we sing in my church, online…but I couldn’t find it…so if you end up searching for this song over YouTube//google//etc. then it’s different.
And to me, when the melody changes, it changes the feeling. For some reason, I don’t connect as well, to the other versions.
Yes, I suppose that we all should praise God in all ways, but I can’t force myself to ‘feel’ the music…God made me that way. Only certain songs do I feel that closeness with God.
Hillsong//United//etc. do a lot of great worship songs, that are easy to fall in love with. Captivating your heart–they definitely major in it. 🙂
Lord, bless me this week as I try to focus on You more…
