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!!!
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!
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!
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.
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!
Owl City is back with some new music. He's got a movie theme going, so the songs are released in three-track "reels". The stuff he was releasing after his score projects last year (those were INCREDIBLE!!!) wasn't really exciting me. "All My Friends" is okay, as is "Lucid Dream", "Not All Heroes Wear Capes" is a great song, but musically, didn't work for me. So I'm sitting over here, disappointed that I'm not enjoying his songs, because I really like him, and then comes "Montana". Oh my goodness! (I'm like Ruffnut in How To Train Your Dragon 2: "Okay, I love you again." :)
I'm mildly obsessed with that song, and it's much more the style I like. The new release today, "New York City", is awesome too. I'm hoping he keeps this up. Both of these songs are kind of random and goofy, though they definitely have a theme, and are his electro-pop style that he used to do all the time. It's fantastic!
There was a big uproar a few years ago in the Relient K fandom when they changed their style and sound. They have the right to do that. But they have to know that their fans, who became their fans because of their old style, will be upset and that they'll probably lose a lot of those fans, who don't like the new style. If they are fine with that, then great. Make the change.
I was one of the fans who doesn't really like much of what they release now and just sticks to the old stuff. I'm hoping that doesn't happen with Owl City, but if it does, then at least I have a lot of his old music to listen too.
