Music Monday!

Here is a song from Mercy Me called Even If. This song really spoke to me when I just stopped and listened to the words of the song. Here is what I got out of this song. God is our only hope. He is there with us through the fire and through the storm and we will never be alone. It is well with my soul!

One lyric that hit me deep was, ‘It’s easy to sing when there’s nothing to bring me down.’ I have felt this strongly this past year. Sometimes when I would go up to help with worship, if I didn’t feel happy it was harder for me to truly sing. I want to be able to sing through the fire and the storm, through the hills, and the valleys! (I own nothing, all rights go to the MercyMe band and 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!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentines Day! ❤ Y’all shall be seeing many hearts in this post… 🙂 Many people do not like Valentines Day. Why? Because they are single, and it reminds them of their “aloneness”. I put aloneness in parentheses because you are never alone. No matter how alone you may feel, God is still with you. You are His bride, remember this on Valentine’s Day this year! ❤ Love God, Love others. Love your friends! And I love y’all so much! ❤ Thank y’all for the lovely support over the past few years. ❤

Music Monday!

This song from NeedToBreathe talks about how we can go to God (the fountain) and be satisfied. This is my understanding of the song, but let me know what y’all think in the comments. 🙂 Here is the song! Enjoy! (I own nothing! All rights go to NeedToBreathe and their producers.)

You Are (New post series)

Here is a little encouragement for you today.

No matter how stressed you are, no matter what you have to do, no matter how many or how few friends you have. Know that you are LOVED. You are loved by the One True King, the Creator of the Universe. You are loved more than you know. Even when you have made so many mistakes that you think no one could possibly love you anymore, you are loved. No matter where you are, you will always be LOVED.

Here is a song to sum it all up.
