Week of Thankful 4.2

Hello Friends and Family and other Gratitude seekers! Here we are on day 2 of the Week of Gratitude. If you have read my blog for any length of time or know me even the slightest bit, you know how music is a huge part of my walk through life with God. It is like oxygen and I cannot live without it.

Zechariah 3:17 is one of my favorite verses because it speaks of God singing over us. I believe that God inspires people still to write beautiful songs and lyrics and uses them to sing over our souls even today. Old & new songs, old verse and new music...all of the above. So today, I'm going to share some song lyrics that I am incredibly thankful for. Each of the songs these lines come from have captured my heart in a new way or been used by God to save me from drowning, move me to a new place, or grow me in some way.

So, here are some song lyrics I'm thankful for:

"I'm broken insides, I give you my life.....I may be weak, but Your spirit's strong in me....My flesh may fail, but my God, You never will" ~ {Give Me Faith by Elevation Worship}

"God is with us, He will go before. He will never leave us. He will never leave us. God is for us, He has open arms, He will never fail us. He will never fail us." {God is Able - Hillsong}

"The Arms that hold the universe are holding you tonight....And the Voice that calmed the raging sea is calling you His child, so be still and know He's in control, He will never let you go....His grace has brought you safe this far, His grace will lead you home...." {Arms that Hold the Universe - Fee}

"I just gotta know that even though I'm a misfit, still worth more than calamity business...Yes I'm loved! I'm pursued. Though I can't feel it, I know that it's true! Somebody woke me up, I know that it's You....If You get me, I know that You've got me, I'm so insecure I can't believe that You want me....You can have it all...I love You!" {Our God feat. LeCrae}

"Oh my God....He will not delay, my refuge and strength, Always. I will not fear...His promise is true, My God will come through always...Always." {Always by Kristian Stanfill}

"If you're like me you need hope, coffee & melody" {New Day by Robbie Seay Band}

"No need to hide anything anymore, can't return to who I was before....I can finally breathe...Suddenly alive...I can finally move....the world feels revived..." {Breathe by Anberlin}

"We're tethered to the story we must tell...When I saw you, well I knew we'd tell it well..." {Turning Page by Sleeping at Last}

"I wanna see what you're made of....Get up and fight, you know you should...Try, there's nothing you should be afraid of, I'd take your place if I could....This ain't safe but it's gonna be good" {Gonna be Good by Matt Wertz}

"Bind up these broken bones....Mercy bend and breathe me back life....but not before You show me how to die..." {Show Me by Audrey Assad}

"You who mourn will be comforted...You who hunger will hunger no more...All the last shall be first, of this I am sure...You who weep now will laugh again...All you lonely be lonely no more...yes, the last will be first...of this I am sure..." {Flags by Brooke Fraser}

"I called, You answered..and You came to my rescue and I...I just want to be where You are..." {Came to my Rescue by Hillsong United}

"You came around and you knocked me off the ground from the start...You put your arms around me, and I believe that it's easier for you to let me go....You put your arms around me and I'm home...." {Arms by Christina Perri

"Dance me to your beauty like a burning violin, Dance me through the panic til I'm gathered safely in...Lift me like an olive branch, be my homeward dove and dance me....to the end of love..." {Dance me to the End of Love by The Civil Wars/Leonard Cohen}

"if Grace is an ocean, we're all sinking...Oh How He loves..." {Oh How He Loves by David Crowder Band}

"You changed my life, You changed my ways, I don't even recognize myself these days, it must be a reflection of You...only you..." {All for You by Keith Urban}

"Be steady on your feet, no matter the trouble you meet....Lions make you brave, Giants give you faith, Death is a charade, You don't have to feel safe to feel unafraid..." {Lions by Lights}

"But I will hold on hope....and I won't let you choke on the noose around your neck...And I'll find strength in pain...and I will change my ways...I'll know my name as it's called again...." {The Cave by Mumford & Sons}

These are all just a smattering of the song lyrics that take me over and hold my heart this year. There are many many more....but tonight, i'm thankful for these and all the others...I'm thankful God speaks to my heart through songs and lyrics like these.

So thankful.
