Yesterday was hard. I was so stressed about eleventy-million different things: finding a house, finding a job, getting packed for the move, getting the house clean for Bible study, etc. But one thing I noticed yesterday was that I was really in the mood to sing. Since I was in a not-so-good state of mind, I figured that praise music might be the way to go. Plus, I really enjoy singing it.
When I got home from work, I had a lot of cleaning to do, but before I dove in, I sat down and made a Spotify worship playlist. I love Spotify. I feel like they do a good job of keeping the commercials to a bare minimum, they have an amazing selection to chose from, and they have folders so you can organize different playlists with exactly the songs you want on there.
When I made my playlist, I was really going for the NEEDTOBREATHE sound. I love that band and enjoy them and similar artists. This is what my playlist ended up looking like when I was finished:

I spent all night cleaning and packing. I was exhausted, but singing these songs from the top of my lungs while I worked made the experience exponentially better!
