Make it like this and I'll like it, God.

29 September 2013

Have you ever noticed that sometimes we push God off too easily? Following everything God wants us to do is so hard. Especially when it contradicts to out fleshly nature.

When it comes to songs also. So many songs are made so that we can like it.

Why don't we go crazy about certain hymns anymore? Because they're so truthful and we don't really want to accept it.

'We didn’t want to turn anybody off with threatening words that no one understands anymore like ‘worship’ or ‘hymn.'

Not very nice, eh?

Here are a few examples with hymn titles.

 * A Comfy Mattress Is Our God
* Joyful, Joyful, We Kinda Like Thee
* Above Average is Thy Faithfulness
* Lord, Keep Us Loosely Connected to Your Word
* All Hail the Influence of Jesus’ Name
* My Hope is Built on Nothing Much
* Amazing Grace, How Interesting the Sound
* My Faith Looks Around for Thee
* Be Thou My Hobby
* O God, Our Enabler in Ages Past
* Blest Be the Tie That Doesn’t Cramp My Style
* Oh, for a Couple of Tongues to Sing
* He’s Quite a Bit to Me
* Oh, How I Like Jesus
* I Lay My Inappropriate Behaviors on Jesus
* Pillow of Ages, Fluffed for Me
* I Surrender Some
* Praise God from Whom All Affirmations Flow
* I’m Fairly Certain That My Redeemer Lives
* Self-Esteem to the World! The Lord is Come
* Sit Up, Sit Up for Jesus
* Special, Special, Special
* Spirit of the Living God, Fall Somewhere Near Me
* Stick Nearby, It’s Getting Dark Outside
* Take My Life and Let Me Be
* There is Scattered Cloudiness in My Soul Today
* There Shall be Sprinkles of Blessings
* What an Acquaintance We Have in Jesus
* When Peace, Like a Trickle. . .
* When the Saints Go Sneaking In
* Where He Leads Me, I Will Consider Following
* God of Taste, and God of Stories
* Lift Every Voice and Intellectualize

I know it sounds hilarious, but really? Is that the way we're feeling or not? 

Think about is our attitude towards God really like?


  1. Hahaha!! Did you make those up? They're great!
    And so true. It's sad and ridiculous how difficult it is for us to keep God in our every moment.

  2. I totally and completely agree!

    1. Thanks for the support ;)

  3. Oh my goodness! That is exactly how this world is these days! You hit the nail on the head! But it's sad, really. We don't want to give our all to Jesus anymore if it means too much work, and if we have to step out of our comfort zones. I am soooooo happy to see that someone noticed that! We need to change this!

    1. You're right! Thanks so much!

  4. Those don't really sound like hymns at all! You're exactly right!
