Lauren Daigle – Look Up Child

Just had my first run thru with Lauren Daigle’s new album; Look Up Child. Absolutely…inspiring. It has the hit, You Say but the song that is on repeat now for me is Rescue. Lyrics such as this just put me at peace…

I will send out an army to find You

In the middle of the darkest night

It’s true, I will rescue you

I will never stop marching to reach you

In the middle of the hardest fight

It’s true, I will rescue you

I have a feeling that this album will be on repeat for the foreseeable future.

You can find Look Up Child on Apple here.

Be sure to visit my other entries on this one of a kind voice here.

Have a great day everyone. May you see the love of God today. PJSLB

The song that is getting me thru doubts in life

I pray this song will be a blessing for you as well. I know that someone out there needs this song and lyrics right now. God bless you all. PJSLB

Hillsong United Lyrics

“Touch The Sky”

What fortune lies beyond the stars

Those dazzling heights too vast to climb

I got so high to fall so far

But I found heaven as love swept low

My heart beating, my soul breathing

I found my life when I laid it down

Upward falling, spirit soaring

I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

What treasure waits within Your scars

This gift of freedom gold can’t buy

I bought the world and sold my heart

You traded heaven to have me again

My heart beating, my soul breathing

I found my life when I laid it down

Upward falling, spirit soaring

I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

Find me here at Your feet again

Everything I am, reaching out, I surrender

Come sweep me up in Your love again

And my soul will dance

On the wings of forever

Find me here at Your feet again

Everything I am, reaching out, I surrender

Come sweep me up in Your love again

And my soul will dance

On the wings of forever

My heart beating, my soul breathing

I found my life when I laid it down

Upward falling, spirit soaring

I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

My heart beating, my soul breathing

I found my life when I laid it down

Upward falling, spirit soaring

I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

Find me here at Your feet again

Everything I am, reaching out I surrender

Come sweep me up in Your love again

And my soul will dance

On the wings of forever

Upward falling, spirit soaring

I touch the sky

When my knees hit the ground

Natalie Grant – King of the World

I love words.  I love how words can bring out emotions that just would not come up from a visual perspective.  Words allow you to use your emotions and imaginations.  From the days of my parents reading to me a bedtime story, to the days of reading my favorite author – Sidney Sheldon, words always captivated me.  Naturally, the words of the Bible is the biggest inspiration to me.  Just before the holiday season, I came across the voice of Natalie Grant while listening to K-Love.  King of the World is one of those songs that just connects you to God. The instruments in the background is soft and reflective…but its the lyrics and content of the song that got to me.

I tried to fit you in the walls inside my mind
I try to keep you safely in between the lines
I try to put you in the box that I’ve designed
I try to pull you down so we are eye to eye

When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the king of the world
How could I make you so small
When you’re the one who holds it all
When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world

Just a whisper of your voice can tame the seas
So who am I to try to take the lead
Still I run ahead and think I’m strong enough
When you’re the one who made me from the dust

When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the king of the world
How could I make you so small
When you’re the one who holds it all
When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world

Oh, you set it all in motion
Every single moment
You brought it all to me
And you’re holding on to me

When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the king of the world
How could I make you so small
When you’re the one who holds it all
When did I forget you’ve always been the king of the world
You will always be the king of the world

Just reading those lyrics give me chills.  In life, we try to make moves in our life to better our current situation and sometimes that leads us into thinking we know better than God; i am not innocent in that as well.  I think i know better and i try to “make moves” when in reality my “moves” are just making my blessings take a little longer.  King of the World  is a reminder that God is indeed the Alpha and Omega and in no way can i do ANYTHING without him

I could not find an official version of the original song but this acoustic version will give you just as much chills.

If you have Apple music, you can find the album simply by searching Natalie Grant – BE ONE.  For iTunes users can go here. Finally, if you use Spotify you can find it here.

Dont forget to follow Natalie Grant on Twitter.

Thank you Natalie for such a beautiful song that connects us to God and reminds us of his power and glory. – PJSLB

***Natalie Grant is also an author.  I will definitely have to pick up this book.***

Christian Christmas Music Day 3

***Until Christmas Day, I will be highlighting one song that defines Christmas for me and my family. Hopefully, some of these songs will be an inspiration to you and your family as well.

Day 3 – Celine Dion – THE VOICE of my generation.

These Are Special Times  Song – O Holy Night

these_are_special_times

No one sings like Celine Dion.  NO ONE!  Not just this track but this album is a must own. Just look at the 5 million plus copies it has already sold.  I may not know anything about you and where your from and what your circumstances are BUT i do know what will give a Christian goosebumps and this song is that.  Fast forward 3:15 into the song to hear Ms. Dion belt out Christ is the Lord; Then ever ever praise we…noel will be the most beautiful sung line you will hear this WHOLE Christmas season.

The season of telling our Lord’s story is in full swing! -PJSLB
