About afcrocks99

I love Jesus. I live for Jesus. He is my King. He is my One True Love. If any of this has offended you, then you might not enjoy my blog, but I'd love for you to stop by! I openly share my faith in Christ, my relationships with others and my passion for music with everyone who should fall across my blog. I want to lift people up and encourage everyone, not just fellow believers. I believe we should Love God, and Love Others, and that is what I strive to do in my daily life. My life verse is Psalm 118:24, and I want to live fully for Jesus everyday of my life. I will praise Him all my days! So join me as I journey through this crazy life seeking to live for Christ. <3 Mandie

Music Monday!

This song has been on my mind lately, so I thought I’d share it with y’all! In Awe is about living in awe of God and what he is doing in our lives. This is a very powerful song and I encourage y’all to put away the distractions and really listen to the words of this song. (I own nothing! All rights go to Hollyn and her producers!)

I’m finally back for a Music Monday! Yay! Today’s song is called One Step Away by Casting Crowns. This song reminds us that we are only one step away from surrendering our lives to Christ. We need to lay down our old chains and pick up our new name. Here is a quote that I found which ties in with the song: “There is no such thing as partial surrender.” When we surrender it is a Full surrender, not partial. Hope y’all enjoy the song! (I own nothing! All rights go to Casting Crowns and producers!)

Here is this week’s music Monday! I love Mandisa and her new song is so amazing! God is never finished with you. You are forever in his hands as He shapes you for something greater. He’s still working on you! (I own nothing! All rights go to Mandisa and her producers!)

My life through music

Music has impacted my life in many ways. In this post I will be sharing some songs that have gotten me to where I am today, or just songs I remember from childhood. They are in no particular order. Feel free to try this for yourselves with songs, books, movies, anything really! Hope y’all enjoy!

Come to Jesus– This was my song when I was younger. I remember every time it came on the radio I would always sing it. It was the only song I new the words to.

You Raise Me Up– I remember this song from kindergarten. We did a play with the Pilgrims and Native Americans, and we sang that song.

My Number One– Growing up a big part of the children’s ministry was a group called the praise team. Now we weren’t your normal praise and worship band. We were a group of kids, teens and adults who would lead the children in dancing to songs. My Number One was the fist song that I ever learned when I joined, and it is still one of my favorites!

Lean on Me– This is another song from the praise. We always had a partner for this one and I found it so fun.

Born Again– This song was the song that really hit home, and I scored BIG! I heard this song on the radio and I actually listened to the words. This was the first song I looked up the words to, and the song that started my walk with God.

Let Them See You– This song encouraged me to live for God and live so that people will see Him in me.

Beautiful Day– This song taught me that it doesn’t matter what it feels like outside physically, it just matters that it is a day that the Lord has given us and we should rejoice in everyday. Everyday is a beautiful day!

Maker– This has been one of my favorite songs since the first time I heard it. I have always been able to get closer to God and find God through His marvelous creation. And this song is such a great reminder of God as the Maker.

Into the Light– This was the first song I ever sang with our youth band, plus I love D.C. Talk songs! I will always remember that night singing this song…

Holy Spirit– Holy Spirit is my favorite worship song to sing for a while now.

Adore Him– This song is a Christmas song which I performed for my first solo performance at a Christmas recital last year. I will always remember it.

Bring Him Home and Favorite Things– These two songs were the songs I sang for my college auditions. They were so out of my comfort zone, but I succeeded in getting accepted.

If y’all have questions on who any of these songs are by, let me know in the comments below! I may add some more in the future!

Here is a beautiful song from Kari Jobe’s newest album ‘The Garden.’ I had such a hard time picking one song, they are all so beautiful. I want to be closer to God’s heart. He is calling us closer to His heart. I want to get lost in His wonderful love. (I own nothing! All rights go to Kari Jobe, Cody Carnes and their producers.) Hope y’all enjoy!
