Every Saturday night I’ll be featuring a favorite worship song. This week is the song that started it all for me. I heard this song when I first started listening to K-Love in 2006. It was a rough time. I was in my third year of law school and money was tight. I was working for my step father, who at one time was a licensed attorney. He has since suffered a rather dramatic fall in almost every way imaginable and we have not spoken in several years. The small firm he started had run out of funds and was not making payroll. This was not helping an already difficult financial situation being a student with a young daughter. I can’t imagine what I would have done without the help of my mother in caring for her.
This song became my mantra. I remember my grandfather telling me, “Don’t ever write anything you wouldn’t be proud to sign your name to.” And this songs touches on that concept of being taking pride in your conduct by singing Christ’s name to the end of each day. I love that thought. I loved the song so much, I actually wrote a letter (yeah… on paper) to K-Love jokingly asking that they play the song 24-7 for a whole month. They declined very politely, but they sent me the CD! I still have it. So I credit this song as the one that first dug its hooks into me and got me to thinking what my true purpose was on this planet and seeking God’s guidance for me. I owe this song a lot. Enjoy!
Leave the name of your favorite worship songs in the comments and I’ll post them some Saturday night. Enjoy!
We were built to be heroes. It’s about time we started acting like heroes.
