8 Of The Best Songs To Bring In The Summer Warmth

It's so close to the end of the school year. It's time to drive around town with the windows down, music blasting, and hair blowing in the wind. These eight songs are perfect for this time of the year.

​​1. ​"Pink Tree" - Caye

If you have never heard of Caye before you might want to consider listening to his music after this song. He is a great rap artist that has an amazing voice too. The album cover says it all. "Pink Tree" is a perfect song to be listening anywhere by water in the sun. It will definitely have you feeling the warmth on summer on your skin.

2. "UCLA" - RL Grime

"UCLA" came out last summer but still remains as a perfect song for this upcoming summer. When listening to "UCLA," it's easy to imagine yourself soaking up the sun rays of Californa, laying out on Venice Beach. One of the greatest songs to get you in the mood for the heat.

3. "Smoke & Retribution" - Flume

The 2016 hit "Smoke & Retribution" from Flume has returned to make an even bigger hit in the spring of 2019. If you like EDM type of beats, this is a perfect song for you. This song will have you craving headbobbing with all of your friends all summer long.

4. "Summertime Magic" - Childish Gambino 

Of course, you can never go wrong with Childish Gambino. "Summertime Magic" gets your body swaying back and forth, dreaming of having someone be your summertime valentine. A great chill song that can get anybody ready for summer.

5. "Sucker" - Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers really had to come back and hit everyone with such a great hit this spring. "Sucker" just proves why the Jonas Brothers will always be the best brother band out there. This song will for sure make you a sucker for those warm nights all summer long.

6. "Joyride" - Fallsteeze & Klanked Remix

At number six, a perfect song to roll the windows downs and turn the volume up. "Joyride" is not a song for everyone, but this is the song for you if you like a techno beat. It will definitely put you in the mood to blast it on those car speakers and make the mirrors shake while driving through town.

7. "Kids" - MGMT

Although the MGMT "Kids" music video isn't for everyone, the song has an amazing beat that everyone can love. This song is the definition of an oldie but a goodie. "Kids" will be a great choice for a summertime playlist that anybody can listen to in the warmth of the summer.

8. "Sunflower" - Post Malone

The last but definitely not the least, "Sunflower" by Post Malone made for the movie "Spider-Man Into The Spider-Verse." This song has it all! Whether you're spending the day at the beach or doing that annoying yardwork your parents always make you do, the beat is relaxing and very catchy. "Sunflower" needs to be on everyone's summer playlist. Even if you haven't seen the movie and would like to, I would advise not watching the music video it does include spoilers.

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

1730
Is God Reckless?


First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
