Gab-fest: Day 31

Today is the last day of Gabfest…I can’t even believe that October has gone so quickly. Today is also Halloween. What am I doing on Halloween? Working of course. Today’s my first official day in the full time position at work.
Mikeschair is becoming a bigger artist as time goes on. I originally posted their song “Someone Worth Dying For” and it is one that has helped sooth my insecurities more times then I can count. This song is about the pull that God has on us and how He’s pulling us into His heart.
This next song is one by Natalie Grant. I used her song “The Real Me“. In that song she is praying to God, she’s telling Him that she’s tired of the games and that she knows that He is the only one who sees the person she is supposed to be. This next song is another one by her, explaining how there is no place like home.

Gab-Fest: Day 30

Two days left! TWO! Can you believe it? I sure can’t.
This song I dedicated to my best friend and accountability partner. Michael W. Smith captures the sense of friendship in his song “I Will Be Your Friend“.  Today, I’m posting one of the songs I grew up on and loved.
The song I posted by David Crowder band was “How He Loves“. It is all about God’s love and how vast it is for us. The song I am posting today never fails to remind me that He is the only one who can help us. He is our remedy for life’s situations.

Gab-Fest: Day 29

Three days left. We’re continuing on our journey of revisiting artists from previous posts. I hope you’ve been enjoying it so far.
This artist is one of three that I posted about in my dedication post to my husband. Mark Shultz song “Walking Her Home” is about a couple dating who fall in love and are together until the day she leaves this world. This song is one that I think that touches a lot of people who know someone who’s gone to war, whether family, or friend.
Kari Jobe’s song that I posted earlier this week “My Beloved“. This song is one that I loved the instant I heard it. The song I’m posting by her today is a popular one, but I think that this is one that helps us realize how powerful God actually is.

Feedback Please….

I need your help. I’ve got a topic that I want to discuss. In our society labels have become the way to relate to people. So often in our minds, actions and words we label people.
 My question for you is this:
What label(s) has society (or yourself) put, or tried to make you wear throughout your life so far?
After you answer that question, if you’d be so kind to answer just a couple more questions for me.
1. How does it make you feel when someone labels you?
2. Is it easy to buy into these labels? Why or why not?
3. What helps you to look past those labels?
Thank you all for your imput. 🙂 You can either comment at the bottom of this post, or you can e-mail me at
Blessings on your weekend friends.

Gab-fest: Day 28

Four more days left in gab-fest. We’re continuing to go back and revisit songs from artists I’ve posted from earlier this month. I’ll link back to the previous post as well.
This group is my dad’s absolute favorite band. I posted their song “When God Ran” earlier this month, it re-told the story of the prodigal son from the bible. This song by Phillips, Craig, and Dean talks all about how amazing His grace is.

Gab-Fest: Day 27

We have 5 days of Gab-fest left. I am going to go back and revisit some of the artists that I posted earlier. Many of them have some other songs that might not be as well known, and I thought it’d be cool to go back to visit them again. (Some of these posts may have 2-3 songs, but hey! Who said I have to only post one song a day.)
This first song is going to be by Audrey Assad. The first song “Show Me” was about teaching us how to die to ourselves in order that we might live more effectively for Him. This song is asking Him to step in and build us into the person that He wants us to be. To use us as a stone in His house.
The next group has been around for a while. I posted their song “Where I Belong” just a couple days ago. This song is one the reached the depths of me when I was in middle school. This is a GREAT song for those days when you feel like you’re all alone and no one understands.

Gab-fest: Day 26

This song never fails to remind me of a few of the things that the cross really means to us.
My Favorite Verses:
My sinful soul could only be
Redeemed by the blood of a sinless King
So You came to the world that You had made
Conquered sin on the cross and You rose from the grave
