The Spiritual Music Station


Recommended Posts

I suppose it might amuse some here that I'm the one starting this thread, since I'm agnostic, but I was inspired by tybec mentioning she was comforted in her grief by Christian music and I don't recall a thread on here for religious music so I'm starting one today, in honor of my husband's birthday. I'm interested in people sharing any kind of spiritual/religious music- I was always the girl going to various services/temples with friends to see how others express themselves. I was raised Roman Catholic and loved singing in Mass and have always self-comforted by singing the religious songs I learned in my youth, even though I'm no longer a believer of any religion. I guess that might seem odd to some atheists and religious,  but what can I say? I've never been considered the conventional type!

 

I will begin with a song from my husband's memorial service, sung by a singer he loved:

Oh, Bunny!  I don't believe in coincidences! 

 

Your song is my DH's favoriten with Allison Krause.  Popular from the movie "Oh Brother Where Thou Art." and on his playlist.

 

I posted this version TODAY on FB. 

 

My new/old friend in my new town had her nephew die this morning.  He was in a job accident, 75% of his body burned, and his mother took him off life support this morning. 

 

My nephews sang this at my DH's funeral, so when I posted it today for my friend, others commented on how they will never forget this at DH's funeral, and how uplifting it is.

 

The version I shared is of the country music couple, and Rory passed last year.  So, there are so many cross overs to this song that make me smile.

 

THANK you for sharing the thread.

 

PS I have learned a lot on YWBB about others' beliefs and learning to understand or try to accept them versus fighting about it.  It is all good.  ;)

I am new on the forum and lost my husband just a month ago. Besides amazing friends and support, my biggest comfort comes from staying at the feet of Jesus. I have never ever felt His comfort as much as I do now. I know I have a long journey ahead and my emotions are all over the place, from panic and pain to peace and comfort.

 

I was able to feel the warmth of the Holy Spirit last week as I found a comfortable position on the couch and I felt the presence of God holding me as I worshipped Him. I did not want to leave that moment. He has been so close, leaning in as I call on Him. The next day after that experience, this song came across my praise and worship station. Psalm 147:3
