The last week or so, or maybe most of my life, I find a few songs that I keep on hitting that repeat button over and over. Especially because certain bits and pieces of the lyrics hit a chord in my heart and either make me bust out a dance move or throw back my head in worship.  To end off the weekend with a bang and bring a little joy right into next week, here you go, for your viewing and listening pleasure:

“You Won’t Relent” sung by Jesus Culture (Found at 1:50 in this version of the song)

*this is doing a number on my view of God…
*and reminds me of this song that I even bought and which is still on repeat
*and yes, that is a quote in Afrikaans in my journal 🙂

And here is song #2 “Hold Us Together” by Matt Maher

*yes, if you were a fly on the wall you could probably find me dancing around to this upbeat tune, thanks for sharing this gem of a song, Lisa-Jo!

The Valley Song

You have led me to the sadness
I have carried this pain
On a back bruised, nearly broken
I’m crying out to you

I will sing of Your mercy
That leads me through valleys of sorrow
To rivers of joy

When death like a Gypsy
Comes to steal what I love
I will still look to the heavens
I will still seek your face

But I fear you aren’t listening
Because there are no words
Just the stillness and the hunger
For a faith that assures

While we wait for rescue
With our eyes tightly shut
Face to the ground using our hands
To cover the fatal cut

And though the pain is an ocean
Tossing us around, around, around
You have calmed greater waters
Higher mountains have come down

I’m liking this song lately…aka the last two days.


Everything There is To Know About You by Mark Wills

What stations are the buttons of your radio on?

94.5, NPR, 102.1, 101.3, and about 5 others.  But I like CDs and Ipods too.

Do you sleep late on Saturday or get up at dawn?


Do you prefer fiddles or violins?

Depends on what it’s for 🙂

Have you given any thought to how a lifetime of love begins?

Yes, but then again no.  I like surprises.

Do you like walking underneath the moonlight?


Is there some kind of magic that will make the mood right?

Yes…and have fun learning it!

How many kisses?


How many stars?

A sky-filled–and none of this city junk.

“When the Saints” (not what you’re thinking!!) by Sara Grove

They played this song at church today and a few lyrics stuck out and so I thought I’d share…

“I see the young girl huddled on the brothel floor. I see the man with a passion come and kicking down the door.”
