Caleb + Kelsey Worship Songs // How Great Is Our God-Our God-How Great Thou Art, etc.

Anthem Lights is one of my favorite bands, but I also am loving their side projects. Caleb Grimm has a side project with his wife, Kelsey, (formerly of 1GirlNation). Their voices together are AMAZING!!! If I like the song, I like their version of it, pretty much. They do covers of pop music that is really good (and their cover of My Heart Will Go On is haunting!), but I'm going to focus on their worship mashups in this post.

My favorite songs off their worship album are How Great Is Our God/Our God/How Great Thou Art and In Christ Alone/Cornerstone/The Solid Rock. I love how they mixed old and new hymns. The AL guys are geniuses at combining songs and Caleb brings that to C+K. Then there are the harmonies. The talent blows me away. 

The other great songs off the Worship Covers album are One Thing Remains/How He Loves and Mercy/Touch The Sky. They just released as a single Death Was Arrested/Reckless Love and I kind of freaked out! Those are probably my two favorite worship songs right now.

Aren't they just incredible? Totally check out their secular and movie song covers too. You won't be disappointed!

King Of My Heart ~ Kutless

One of my favorite worship songs right now!! I want someone to combine this song with "Yes and Amen" by Chris Tomlin. It'd look something like this:

You are good, good, oh
You are good, and all your promises
are yes and amen

What do you think? Do you agree?

Happy Listening!

No Longer Slaves ~ I AM THEY

Fear is a daily, sometimes hourly, battle. There is so much to fear. Our world at large is in chaos and often our own little worlds and our minds are in chaos as well. It seems to me that at times, the Devil is just saturating my mind with lies and fear, and I can't see a way out. I don't know how to stop it. 

Songs like 'No Longer Slaves' help me speak truth over myself when I'm being bombarded by lies. My mouth proclaims and my ears hear the truth of who I am in God, and slowly, I start to believe it again. This process might be repeated often, forgetful human that I am, but what matters is that I know, even when I don't feel.

May this song bring you peace as it does for me. Happy Listening!!!

Walking On Water ~ NEEDTOBREATHE

I'm a flukey NEETOBREATHE fan. I either REALLY like their songs or REALLY don't like them. Obviously, since I'm posting about it, this is one that I like :)

There's echoes of Peter's attempt to walk to Jesus on the water, but it's also about our everyday life, our tendencies to look back and be paralyzed by the past or try to see ahead and be afraid of the unknown. I know I do.

A very encouraging song in the style only NEEDTOBREATHE can do. Happy Listening!

No One Like Our God ~ Lincoln Brewster

There is an element of worship and prayer that is often forgotten. I have a particularly hard time doing this in my prayers and so songs are a wonderful medium for me to use. I'm talking about adoration.

I have a hard time when I'm praying just telling God how amazing He is. It's not natural or easy for me. But prayers take different forms and a song can be a prayer. Lincoln Brewster's worship song "No One Like Our God" is a song of adoration. Telling God who He is and what He's done, not for His benefit, but acknowledging who He is. 

Raise your voices and hands (if you want to) and proclaim that there is No One Like Our God!

Happy Listening!

I Need You God ~ Consumed By Fire

I love this song about surrender by Consumed by Fire. I've never heard of them before. I feel like this is Proverbs 3:5-6 in song form. It's talks about how we fail and fall when we try to go it alone and do things on our own. This shows us our need for our Savior. Great message, great music, great song. 

Happy Listening!

Washed Over Me ~ All Things New

This is a great song for Easter time. It also reminds me of baptism. The theme is one of new life in Christ, when we've been washed in Him; freed by His grace. Plus, it's upbeat and fun! Win, win, win. Happy Listening!
