BLOG-TEMBER DAY 25 | Meaningful Music

There are very few moments when I am not listening to music. It comes on as my alarm in the morning, I turn it on in the living room for breakfast, and I play a certain song each day when I shower. I often joke you can tell how stressed I am by how early I listen to Christmas music... and I've already been doing that for two weeks ;)

I have playlist after playlist for each season, holiday, even month of the year. I can go back through 2013 and have a flood of memories wash over me as I click through each song with each month. So, naturally, I had to include music in the Blog-tember Challenge. I thought it would be a different mix, but right now these three worship songs are hitting the spot, and I can't wait to see what you think of them!

Friday, Sept. 25: Three songs you are connecting with right now.


"I Trust it All" by Brett Stanfill
With every breath, with every word I speak
With every step, with every heartbeat
Jesus let it be for you, for you only
My whole life, all for your glory
My life is in your hands
I trust it all, I trust it all to You
My dreams & all my plans
I trust it all, I trust it all to you.

I first heard this song over the weekend at The Influence Conference and  Y'ALL! It broke me down and blew my mind. I want to sing it out at the top of my lungs each day! The lyrics are so poignant, so this season, and so what I want my battle cry to be. Let this song sink in. You won't regret it.


"Come to the River" by Housefires
Come to the water, all who are thirsty
Come and drink
Come to the table, all who are hungry
Come and feast
Those who are weary, those who are needy
Come receive
Come to the river, come to the river
Taste and see

We sang a few songs from the Housefires II album when I was in Seattle this summer, and I simply could not get this one out of my head. My season of grad school so often feels like a dry place, and I'm so weary and needing Jesus, that this song speaks it out when I cannot. It echoes His promise that those who hunger and thirst for righteousness shall be fed, and that all we have to do is draw near to Jesus. Yes please!


"Majesty" by Antioch College Worship
You are holy
You are good
You have been faithful
Like You said You would
Oceans will rage and mountains fall
But Jesus your love will stand through it all
So we'll  rise with heaven sing of your majesty

I have been looking forward to this album for weeks! I went to Antioch Community Church in college and was consistently blessed by the worship music they put out, and this album is no exception! Go, run, get it NOW! In fact, get every album ACC has put out, especially Forever Sound Our God Comes. You won't want to miss them! This song in particular speaks truth straight into the lie I so often believe that God has good things for other people and not for me. It's NOT TRUE AT ALL an He IS good and HAS BEEN good and WILL BE good and faithful to ME too!

What about YOU? What music is speaking to you today?
