I am in love with Hawk Nelson!!!!

Their newest album Diamonds is just fantastic. Here is the title track for your enrichment and encouragement. 

Diamonds are formed under intense stress and pressure and Hawk Nelson's latest album, Diamonds, explores how God uses our struggles to transform us. Lead singer Jon Steingard states, "Diamonds talks about how God can use pressure, struggle, trials, and stress in our life and make it into something stronger and more beautiful." Being diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer at 19, a parent losing a four-month old baby to SIDS, a teacher giving her life to protect her young students through a tornado, and countless people being executed by ISIS seems incredibly unfair. Satan works hard during these times to fee you lies and make you assume you have failed God in some manner. God uses these exact situations to strengthen people with more inner beauty.

Happy Listening!!!

God Is Still God And He Holds It Together

The title is part of the lyrics to this song "God Is Still God" by Heather Williams. I almost never think about this song, but whenever something rotten happens or I get bad news, or feel really sad, this song just comes back to me. People say if you memorize Scripture, God will bring it to you when you need it; well He brings songs to me too. I hope this song helps you if you are going through some tough times and if times are good then just listen to a beautiful song. Happy Listening!

All Eyes On You ~ OBB

I'm seeing a trend here in the new music coming out and the stuff I like - Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus, Fix My Eyes, All Eyes On You. There is this theme of putting Jesus first and foremost before our eyes. I think the reason this is so prevalent is the degeneration of the human race. We have lost focus of the most important thing and look around at where it has gotten us. We need to turn and fix all our eyes on Him. Happy Listening!

Broken Beautiful ~ Chris Sligh

This song is in one of my favorite movies October Baby (if you've never seen it you need to!). It's very beautiful and I think of it in terms of relationships with others. We are broken but beautiful, all of us, and that fact is intertwined in our relationships. Happy Listening!

Music by Disciple

You may be surprised that I am posting a song by Disciple if you know me at all and know what the band sings. But, I do like some of their softer stuff, including "Trade A Moment". I also really like their new song "Unbroken".  So Happy Listening!

Take Me As I Am ~ FM Static

I had completely forgotten about this band until I heard this song today. Apparently, Trevor McNevan of TFK is in the band. So if you are a TFK fan, this may be something you'll like. Happy listening!

God, You anchor me down

For Christians, God is our anchor. It is Him who keeps us grounded in our faith and in the storms, He anchors us to Him. This song is about God as our anchor. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Happy Listening!
