Surely I wish to speak to the Almighty, and I desire to argue and reason my case with God [that He may explain the conflict between what I believe of Him and what I see of Him].

    Job 13:3 AMP

    When God is unattractive, it is usually a result of our having unhealthy rather than healthy thoughts about him.

    We need to reconcile our view of God with who he really is. Here are some simple comparisons we can use to examine our own thoughts with regard to God.

    1. He Cares for Me – Moving from “He hurts me” to “He helps me feel”
    2. He Understands Me – Moving from “He accuses me” to “He softens my heart”
    3. He Believes in Me – Moving from “He limits me” to “He gives me purpose”
    4. He Loves Me – Moving from “He wants a performance” to “He wants a relationship”

    Music can help us connect with God and understand how our hearts respond to him. The following is a playlist based on Chapter 1 of the book, He’s Not Who You Think He Is: Dropping Your Assumptions and Discovering God for Yourself, to help you develop a fresh perspective on God to see him and yourself the way God does.

    These songs are in order of the above list – the first couple of songs help you move from thinking God hurts you to seeing he helps you feel, the next few songs help you move from thinking he accuses you to seeing he softens your heart, and so on. We hope they help you, and even if not all songs connect with you personally, we hope it can inspire you to make your own playlists of songs that help you turn unhealthy thoughts about God into healthy ones.
