Pull Me Out

Standard

Howdy y’all.  It’ me, the author and owner of this blog about…. not a whole lot.

I thought I’d post something with a little substance–something that has been rocking my world and changing my heart lately.  I have mentioned the power and impact that music has on me and the way that God uses certain artists speak or shout to me. One such artist is Bebo Norman.

His latest album, my new favorite, is the only thing I have listened to for the past month. I play in the morning on my computer as I get ready, in my car on the way to work, on my iPod as I work out, etc.  It’s always ringing in my ears. I know every lyric to every song.  And every song, in some way or another, has hit home deeper than I anticipated.

I won’t introduce this song because Mr. Norman does the honors below… take a listen.

True Love

Standard

I love music. A lot.

I love music that truly says something; inspires and wells up within me a hope, a vision, and passion for something bigger than myself.

Phil Wickham’s songs do it. Bandon Heath’s music does it. Bebo Norman. Shane & Shane. The list is endless.

Here’s just a taste of what I mean.

And in case you can’t hear every word… read it.

Come close listen to the story
About a love more faithful than the morning
The Father gave His only Son just to save us

The earth was shaking in the dark
All creation felt the Fathers Broken Heart
Tears were filling Heaven’s Eyes
The day that True Love died, the day that True Love died
When blood and water hit the ground
Walls we couldn’t move came crashing down
We were free and made alive
The day that True Love died, The day that True Love died

Search your heart you know you can’t deny it
Come on, lose your life just so you can find it
The Father gave His only Son just to save us

The Earth was shaking in the dark
All creation felt The Fathers broken heart
Tears were filling Heaven’s Eyes
The day that True Love died, the day that True Love died
When blood and water hit the ground
Walls we couldn’t move came crashing down
We were free and made alive
The day that True Love died, The day that True Love died

Now, Jesus is alive

Jesus is alive
Jesus is alive
Jesus is alive
Jesus is alive
Oh, He is alive
He rose again

When blood and water hit the ground
Walls we couldn’t move came crashing down
We were free and made alive
The day that True Love died, The day that True Love died

Come close listen to the story

Brandon Heath

Standard

As of late, my newest favorite artist is Brandon Heath.  His lyrics hit home to me in a big way and I can’t seem to get enough of his songs. Riddled with metaphors, biblical imagery, and personal battles too few admit to, I feel like someone put music to heart.
