Music Monday: Quiet Time Playlist

Hello Beautiful People! 

Im starting a new series called Music Monday on By Maureé. Over the course of the next few weeks I will be sharing music that I love for different areas in life. This week I want to talk to you about an album that is very near and dear to my heart. First of all if you're not familiar with CeCe Winans you should check her out. This woman's voice is a GIFT. Since I was a little kid, I can remember her melodic voice echoing through the walls of my parent's home. But recently God has been emphasizing the meticulous craft in old school gospel music. There was something about the gospel music in the 90's and early 2000's that was so raw. The lyrics were more of psalms than just words. I feel like the music meant more then that it does now and there was a very tangible anointing on albums back then. Artists like Fred Hammond, John P. Kee, Richard Smallwood and The Winans are some of my favorites just to name a few. 

However, this album is particularly important to me because it has become the playlist for my morning worship time with God. I feel like a lot of times people don't pay much attention to having daily devotional time because they think that it has to be done a certain way. That's so not true. Remember that you're in a relationship with God and how you choose to spend time with Him is completely up to you! Some mornings I only have five minutes thank God for another day and other times I have an hour to sing, read and get in the word. Many times people get convicted about not making God a part of their mornings, but I believe thats because they're being rigid about what that's suppose to look like. 

I encourage you to wake up and simply put this album on while you're getting ready for the day ahead. Welcome God into your morning and just let Him be a part of whatever you're doing. Thank him for giving you strength while you're making your breakfast. Ask him for wisdom as you're brushing your teeth. Give him permission to show you where you need correction as you're walking the dog. My point is that whatever your routine is in the morning you should let God be a part of it. 

I Love You Bunches,
