There was a time in my life where I wore blue jeans every day. This high school fad was great during cold winter months and perfect with a turtleneck and sweater. However, the type of faded blues I’m talking about today is from David Mullen. Not to be confused with Rich Mullins, David started out his career in Blues before switching over to more of a pop rock sound.
When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their distress and troubles. 18 The Lord is close to those who are of a broken heart and saves such as are crushed with sorrow for sin and are humbly and thoroughly penitent, Psalm 34:17-18.
Today’s feature is the title of an album and a hit song when it was released in 1991. Faded Blues serves as a prayer and reality when a Christian is able to overcome tough times in life. Just as a washing machine and dryer slowly fades blue jeans to a shade of white, God wants all human beings to have their anxieties, burdens, and concerns disappear. Yet, trials continue to challenge Christians to mature, James 1:2-4. Enjoy this classic sound of the nineties.
