Gab-fest: Day 24

Today’s song is one I’ve been hearing on the radio quite a bit. I absolutely LOVE the concept of this song. I hope you enjoy it as well.

My Favorite Part:
He chose to take the cross
shed tears for the lost
The broken and the needy
forgiving those who were and will be

I love this explanation…He CHOSE the cross. Christ didn’t have to die, but he chose to die for us. To heal us. To forgive us.

Gab-fest: Day 23

Today’s post is scheduled. 🙂 That way I didn’t have to worry about it in the long span of time. Yesterday at work, I got some good news. A full-time position came open and it was mine if I wanted it. So I took it. While I don’t  care much for second shift, it will actually work well with the schedule of my household schedule. My husband and my schedules will only be a couple of hours away from each others. (He generally works 10:30a-7p and I’ll be working 1p-9p) I cannot be more excited.

Any hoo…on to the topic at hand. 🙂 Gab-fest. While it may be winding down, I am not running out of steam (or songs come to that.

This song is one that my sister and I LOVED growing up. It’s a song that instills the story of Christ in a fun and creative way.

Gab-fest: Day 22

Posting Late today. I forgot to pre-schedule this post. 🙂 oops.

The end of October is getting close. We’re going to keep pressing on with the last few days of gab-fest. I have So many songs in mind still left to post. So let’s get to it.

Today’s song is one that I think each and every one of us can relate to at one time or another. I love this song because of the fact that it gives us the slightest glimpse into God’s response when we turn toward Him instead of away from Him.

My Favorite Verse:
I was so ashamed, all alone and so far away
But now I know He’s been waiting for this day

Gab-fest: Day 21

Day 21 out of 31 of the gabfest taking place with 700 other writers.

Today’s song is about allowing God to cleanse us from our human struggles. This is the version that Kutless did. It was originally done by Petra. I hope you enjoy.
My Favorite Verse:
Pass me by the crowds of people
The priests who sing Your praise
I hunger and thirst for Your righteousness
And it’s only found one place

Gab-fest: Day 20

Today is day 20 of 31. We’re 2/3 the way through the month and in the final stretch.

This is a song I’ve known for a while. It never fails to help me when I’m feeling down. I grew up with Rich Mullins songs. This one was by far my favorite though.
My Favorite Verses:
Surrender don’t come natural to me
I’d rather fight You for something I don’t really want
Than to take what You give that I need
And I’ve beat my head against so many walls
Now I’m falling down I’m falling on my knees

Gab-fest: Day 19

Today’s song I just heard for the first time. I’ve always loved Kari Jobe. I’ve found that, for me, the songs that tend to hit home the hardest are when the lyrics are written from God’s perspective. It’s like a love letter just for me. I hope you enjoy this song as much as I did.
My Favorite Part:
You’re My Beloved
You’re My Bride
To sing over you is my delight
Come away with Me My love

Gab-Fest: Day 18

Two-Thirds the way through gab-fest now. I can hardly believe I’ve been able to keep up!!! 

The song for today is one I heard twice yesterday when driving…Both times I was reminded of His greatness compared to my smallness. I hope you enjoy this song.

Key Lyrics for me:

You are joy, You are joy 
You’re the reason that I sing
You are life, You are life, 
In You death has lost its sting
