There is something so raw about this song. I almost feel as if I'm eavesdropping on Jon while he prays. This tender melody is like a cool healing balm for my scorched heart. How songwriters are able of taking the deepest longings and feelings of their heart, then put them into song, beautiful soul stirring songs, is too much for me to wrap my mind around. Thank you Jon, for your transparency and for putting words to questions that must be in the hearts of so many others.Read More
Thank you Lord, for being faithful, when I, a wandering sheep, didn't even notice your presence. Remind me daily of your faithfulness, keep it at the forefront of my mind and may my every action be made in light of this truth: You are faithful and Your plan for me is good. In the precious name of your son, Jesus, Amen.Read More
Another anthem of mine.
I clung fast to this song, among other things, during one of the darkest and most broken times in my life.
I wanted to share this song with you today before talking about that brokenness on Tuesday.
This song has been filtering into my mind a lot lately.
Mom sent this to me a few years ago in the middle of my first real battle with anxiety and fear.
I come back to it when the world feels heavy or overwhelming, which is far too often these days.
I have always loved this old hymn, but somehow over the last month or so it has become my anthem.
I have sought out it's haunting harmonies and empowering lyrics repeatedly and sing it prayerfully with tears in my eyes.
The artist from this recording penned a very vulnerable and beautiful blog post about this song's significance to her.
I found it so relatable, so touching, that I have re-posted it here.
This Sam Cooke classic is our song. We danced to it at our wedding and now we dance to it in our kitchen. It's a sweet song and I thought it would be a good pick in the middle of this October. I can't help hoping there is another couple meeting and falling in love in this season just like we did.Read More
The Piano Guys take songs that we all know and turn them into little slices of music heaven.
Their arrangements are nothing short of brilliant.
They also write their own originals and make really awesome music videos to fit along with their songs.
So creative and so fun, The Piano Guys get played a lot in our house!
