I’ve recently signed up to WeAreWorship.com, which is an excellent website with free chord charts and weekly mp3 and sheet music downloads. I strongly recommend signing up – I’ve particularly enjoyed hearing worship songs each week that I maybe didn’t know before.
They also have a SongShare section where unsigned artists can upload their own songs. I’ve uploaded three of mine and one has been chosen as a Staff Pick. If you get chance, check it out and please share it further!
Some days our hearts can be heavy with the weight of our pasts. That old baggage that we can’t seem to shake off. Jesus never gives up on us. He is the King of second chances. However your day (or your life) seems to be panning out, remember: God’s mercies are new every morning. Lamentations 3: 22-23
Something is missing in your life. Something untangible, you can’t put your finger on it. A silent, unexplained emptiness and a sense of being lacklustre. What you need is some soulfood: God’s love. He’s waiting if you’re ready.
Ever felt like you don’t know where you are heading? God provides you with direction. Listening to Him means your actions start to make sense, because He sees the bigger picture. Where are you without Him?
I’d be packin’ my bags when I need to stay, I’d be chasin’ every breeze that blows my way…
I’m listening to a lot of Casting Crowns at the moment. I really love their driving sound and heartfelt biblical lyrics to their songs. It’s difficult to pick out any favourites but I’m going to highlight two songs in particular.
Courageous is an anthem for the modern Christian man and I think it is particularly apt for where we are as a church at present – seeking to engage in meaningful outreach that makes an impact on people in our communities.
Just another birthday is a heart-rending song that brings me close to tears listening to it.
I can definitely recommend you get more Casting Crowns in your life!
One of the best things about being a Christian is the positive transformation that appears in your life (if you choose to accept it). Gwen’s song expresses this transformation: God turns worthless into precious, hungry into satisfied, broken into beautiful. This song highlights the sense of weariness felt when you do everything in your own strength; in contrast, accepting that you need God in your life permits Him to step in and change things. Which definitely takes the pressure off…
Overwhelmed? Everyone is sometimes. People think Christians get an easy life – well, that just isn’t true. The difference is that Christians have a solid rock to lean on in tough times: God. His presence is strongest when we are at our weakest. I’ve learnt this through personal experience.
Stand strong in faith during the tough times and let God sort it out. He’s plenty big enough to solve your problems.
See 2nd Corinthians Chapter 12, verse 9: “…my power is made perfect in weakness”.
I stumbled across this powerful song yesterday, again by Casting Crowns. It tells the Easter story, and highlights the importance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. Basically, this is the Easter message in a nutshell…
What’s your biggest stumbling block in life? Maybe it’s not that thing you just named: maybe it’s really yourself? What could you achieve if you could change your thought-life? Who would you become? You could reach your God-given potential and dare to be the person He wants you to be…
