I am late on this review (and a couple more). I'm embarrassed. I have a good excuse - real life got in the way. Marching band competitions and some remodeling on the house have had our days in upheaval. We had flooring replaced in the entire second floor, which involved a lot of packing-up and moving-around stuff and furniture, not once, but twice, as the whole event had to be completed during parts of two different weeks.
For several weeks, I have been listening to artist Jeremy Riddle's FURIOUS, a Contemporary Christian music CD in the car as I am going from place to place.
And FURIOUS has been the calm for me in the craziness of the schedule and the remodeling.
FURIOUS is a studio album from Jeremy Riddle; I would describe the music, 12 tracks, as "worshipful". Upbeat "worshipful". Every time I turn on the FURIOUS cd in the car, I am reminded that the drama of our schedule, that the frustration in the remodeling, that all the little upsets and disruptions are nothing. Zero. My focus should be on the One who made me. And the music instantly refocuses me, no matter what track I begin on.
Riddle describes Furious saying, “It’s hard to come up with words that depict the magnitude of Christ’s love – the depth and width of it. Furious doesn’t work outside of the context of love; we tend to translate the word as angry, but I see it as a super-powerful force; stronger, deeper, broader than our vocabulary can fully describe."This is the kind of cd I would pop in as I sit down to work on a Bible study or do a daily devotion. While it is certainly not slow and dragging, it is not the type of CD I'd pop in late at night to keep me awake on a trip, which I write, not as a negative, but to try to give you type of CD this is. I am enjoying the worship of it.
I have been offered a copy to give away. If you want to enter a drawing to win this CD from my blog, enter a comment, below, before midnight, 13-Oct-2011. That's it! I think you'll enjoy this one, too!
