Music Monday #5


Hello all! I heard this song on the radio this week and almost cried when I heard it. It has such beautiful lyrics and it's so chill that I just love it. Isn't it awesome to know that we are redeemed through Christ? As the song says, He gives us a new name and a new life, and we are not who we used to be. I'm so thankful that I'm not who I used to be haha :)


"Redeemed" by Big Daddy Weave

Seems like all I could see was the struggle
Haunted by ghosts that lived in my past
Bound up in shackles of all my failures
Wondering how long is this gonna last
Then You look at this prisoner and say to me "son
Stop fighting a fight it's already been won"

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I'll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe away every stain, now I'm not who I used to be
I am redeemed, I'm redeemed

All my life I have been called unworthy
Named by the voice of my shame and regret
But when I hear You whisper, "Child lift up your head"
I remember, oh God, You're not done with me yet

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I'll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe away every stain, now I'm not who I used to be

Because I don't have to be the old man inside of me
'Cause his day is long dead and gone
Because I've got a new name, a new life, I'm not the same
And a hope that will carry me home

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I'll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe away every stain, 'cause I'm not who I used to be

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I'll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe every stain, yeah, I'm not who I used to be
Oh, God, I'm not who I used to be
Jesus, I'm not who I used to be
'Cause I am redeemed
Thank God, redeemed

(Lyrics from AZ Lyrics)

Music Monday #4


Well, I'm a bit sporadic with Music Monday.. but it's the thought that counts, right? Right. Anyway, I came across this awesome new song from Meredith Andrews and thought it was incredible. This girl can sanggg. Yup, not sing. Sanggg. Isn't is awesome to know that God is constant, He is good, and He is sovereign? He never changes. The world around us may be changing by the second, but He is forever the same. 


 

"Not For a Moment (After All)" by Meredith Andrews


You were reaching through the storm
walking on the water
even when I could not see
in the middle of it all
when I thought You were a thousand miles away
not for a moment did You forsake me
not for a moment did You forsake me

after all You are constant
after all You are only good
after all You are sovereign
not for a moment will You forsake me
not for a moment will You forsake me

You were singing in the dark
whispering Your promise
even when I could not hear
I was held in Your arms
carried for a thousand miles to show
Not for a moment did You forsake me

and every step every breath you are there
every tear every cry every prayer
in my heart at my worst
when my world falls down
not for a moment will You forsake me

Well, I created Music Monday and then.. I bailed. Sorry about that! Here's a video that has been so amazing for this heart of mine. Read the words as you listen and let them sink in.


"Sovereign Over Us" by Aaron Keyes

There is strength within the sorrow, there is beauty in our tears
You meet us in our mourning, with a love that casts out fear
You are working in our waiting, sanctifying us
When beyond our understanding, You're teaching us to trust

Your plans are still to prosper, You have not forgotten us
You're with us in the fire and the flood
Faithful forever, perfect in love
You are sovereign over us

You are wisdom unimagined, who could understand Your ways
Reigning high above the heavens, reaching down in endless grace
You're the lifter of the lowly, compassionate and kind
You surround and You uphold me, Your promises are my delight

Even what the enemy means for evil
You turn it for our good, You turn it for our good and for Your glory
Even in the valley You are faithful
You're working for our good, You're working for our good and for Your glory
