This playlist is called The “Put Back” Album for two reasons.
First, because the best way I can describe heart break is to experience the joy, the surprise, the hopeful expectation of being chosen … And then to feel like you’ve been “put back” on the shelf. To be chosen, to be known and to be loved – only to be put back and returned.
Second, because even in the midst of this incredible and confusing pain, I know that my life and my heart are being “put back” together. In Ezekial 36:26 God says, “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” God is especially at work in times of hurt. Out of our pain and struggle emerges something new.
This playlist is my exploration of both of these themes. It is my hope that these 20 songs tell an overarching narrative of what it means to hurt, but also what it means to be put back together.
If you’d like a copy of this CD for your own listening pleasure, let me know and I’d be more than happy to make and send you one!
