Lord, you seem so far away when evil is near! Why do you stand so far off as though you don’t care? Why have you hidden yourself when I need you the most?

    Psalm 10:1 TPT

    When we feel disappointed, rejected, or left alone, it can be easy to just accept it, assuming that we are just better off alone. We don’t want to need anybody because we don’t want to be let down, so we don’t let anybody in in order to not get hurt.

    This often makes us selfish, because we are so busy protecting ourselves that we don’t think about what other people are going through. This is a lonely life to live, and God doesn’t want us to be left to ourselves.

    [9] Two people are better than one. When two people work together, they get more work done. [10] If one person falls, the other person can reach out to help. But those who are alone when they fall have no one to help them. [11] If two people sleep together, they will be warm. But a person sleeping alone will not be warm.

    Ecclesiastes 4:9-11 ERV

    We need friends to help us through life; no one is meant to go through life alone. At the same time, our friends need us just as much as we need them. God wants to give us friendships where we are each other’s teammates, number one fans, and support systems. Two are always better than one, but sometimes it’s hard to break out of the comfort and safety of isolation.

    And that’s where music can help us. Music speaks to the soul and helps us express parts of ourselves that are too deep for words. Through music, we can understand and express our sadness, anger, happiness, insecurity, and so much more. Through music, we can go from feeling alone and isolated, to having friendships for life. In other words – from lonely to homie.

    This playlist is meant to display the same progression David went through in the Psalms – starting with songs about feeling lonely, rejected, and afraid of being known, and progressing to seeing how God loves us for who we are and understands what we go through. Though this progression is meant to help you work through your emotions as you listen, you can listen to the playlist in whatever order you want – it is meant to help you work through, understand and express the emotions of your heart!
