Day 14: Hear our hearts cry out

I’m just going to put this right here.

Seriously, though, this song by Vertical Church Band recently shuffled into play on my iPod and I ended up listening to it about five times in a row. From the first word, the focus is solely on worshiping God. I love that. Please listen to it. I think you’ll like it, too.

Holy, Holy, You are God Almighty
And You reign victorious over all the earth
Holy, Holy, You are God Almighty
Yes, You reign victorious over all the earth

Let Your Kingdom come, and Your will be done
Here on earth as it is in heaven
And to Your renown hear our hearts cry out
Singing “Holy is the Lord”

God of Glory see Your victory story
In the lives of those who gather at the cross
Rock of ages be adorned with praises
As Your people raise their voice in thanks and love

Focus with me on the true kingdom right now. Hear our hearts cry out – Holy is the Lord!
Do you have a favorite song that focuses your heart on worship of our God?

Day 2: Rest in Worship and Praise

I don’t know about you, but sometimes resting for me is dwelling on God through music. So spend some time soaking these in. Come back later when you have a quiet moment and rest here.

A new tune to an old hymn:

You are a Savior and you take brokenness aside and make it beautiful.

As the deer pants for water, so my soul thirsts for you. And when I behold your glory, you so faithfully renew.

Though you ruin me, still I will worship. Sing a song to One who’s all I need. (This one is so worth the 6 minutes.)

And I will call upon your name and keep my eyes above the waves. When oceans rise, my soul will rest in your embrace. For I am yours and you are mine.

Day 14: When Praise Is All You Can Muster

The first time I met the woman who would become my mother-in-law, she was quite blunt with me.

Because his mom was visiting, Tom had invited a bunch of friends to his house after church to hang out (he and I were only friends at that time).  Being of a melancholy disposition, I was kind of bummed that night – for no particular reason. When his mom asked me if I was coming, I indicated that I wasn’t really feeling like being around people. And she said, this woman I’d only just met,

You just need to go praise the Lord!”

Excuse me? Who do you think you are?

I didn’t say this, not wanting to be rude, but really!?! (more…)
