I tend to have these moments of overwhelming joy. It embraces me as if I was lost and didn’t realize it, swooping in to let me know I am not alone. Typically, this happens when I am listening to worship music, and actually hearing the words.
Often times I feel as though we sing nonchalantly, unaware of the defining worship or parts of scripture we’re singing along to. We simply mouth the words because we’ve memorized them over the years. But when I pause to focus, in the midst of whatever life event is occurring, I am once again overpowered by the depth of praising Him.
Below, are some of my go-to pump up songs. Allow your heart to fixate on the truth behind the music, and turn your singing into prayer.
This song fills me with strength. A reminder that we, through God, are bigger than any battle and antic the devil throws at us. I can’t help but picture the elegance of a lion roaring, the power of his praise shaking the ground beneath its feet. If we praised like that, how dynamic would that be?
What a powerful message that we are not held down by our past anymore, that we are in fact good enough to be a child of God, that we should not drown in shame when we have been given the gift of grace.
We can never lose God’s love for us. We are always welcome with open arms and unconditional love. There is nothing we could ever do to lose that. Keep running to Him!
There is nothing in this life that we cannot face, that we cannot overcome. Our savior defeated the battle for us. What a beautiful picture to carry around with you on a daily basis – that empty grave – and what that means for us
There is so much beauty in worship friends. Turn it up, focus your attention, and let the gift of music be a means of praise to our Lord!
