Saturday Night Worship Song

What exactly do I say about this song? It moves me. it seems to capture my nervousness about radical abandonment perfectly. It feels like I will drown. In my head I know that God wouldn’t let that happen. But wow does it feel like it. So I chicken out. Our worship band at church has done this song and literally brought me to tears. I’m talking the “gotta sit down and make people think I’m a nutball because I’m crying in church” type tears. “Lead to deeper waters where feet may fail.” Yeah. That part where our lives stop working unless God is in them. It makes me think of something David Platt said in his book Radical. “If your life mainly consists of going to work and catching the game on the weekend you probably DON’T need prayer.” Tough words. But a reminder that if we’re not feeling the absolute desperate need to pray it’s because we’re not living our lives on the edge where God wants us.

I could babble on forever about this song. But enough from me. What do YOU think about this song? What worship song moves YOU?

Man this song is cool! Thanks so much for the suggestion from blogger Terese.  This is such a high energy song, which is right up my alley.  Thanks for the suggestion Terese!  And please stop by her blog, because it’s pretty darn awesome if you ask me…

Saturday Night Worship Song

Every Saturday night I’ll be featuring a favorite worship song.  This week is an oldie by Christian music standards.  This video is actually pretty funny and really does a good job of portraying what we all do: We’ve got a good Christian self and then this other self that’s kind of a jerk.  I actually had a blog back in those days when blogging was still kind of a new idea.  WordPress didn’t even exist back then as far as I know.  The name of the blog? “So Long Self” and it was all about my thoughts on faith and abandoning yourself to follow Christ.  The more things change…. the more they stay the same.

This is a fun song and an even more fun video.  Enjoy!

Saturday Night Worship Song

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!

Saturday Night Worship Song

Every Saturday night I’ll be featuring a favorite worship song.  This week is a brand new favorite for me.  It’s not a new song, but I had never heard it before last week.  This is Chris Tomlin along with Passion Band performing All My Fountains.  I love it!  One of the things I like is that Chris Tomlin really comes across as a regular guy truly enjoying what he’s doing.
