What Is Your Song? (5/4/13)

Read: Judges 19:1-20:48, John 3:22-4:3, Psalm 104:24-35, Proverbs 14:22-24

I will sing to the Lord as long as I live. I will praise my God to my last breath! (Psalm 104:33)

Relate: I’m going to do something a little bit different here. I’m accused of singing too much sometimes. It seems there is always a song in my head and usually it is also bursting out of me. So instead of my normal 4r’s I’m just going to throw up a few of my favorites. As I said in a recent comment, this is my all time favorite song:

I remember being at some youth function back in 97 or so when I first heard it. I made them stop everything and everyone quiet down so I could hear it again. The night’s fun and games ended up being interrupted for over an hour or so as a spontaneous worship session ended up breaking out right then and there.

When I am praying now one of these two songs are most often coming to my lips:

If I’m hearing a song in the store or for some some other song gets stuck in my head that I don’t want there, this is what I will start singing to push it out:

My spiritual warfare song:

My presence song:

My favorite very new song:

So… what’s your song? If you have a testimony to go with it, I’d love to hear. Let’s help each other find new songs through we can lift up praise to our God with every breath within us.

  1. I have so many songs that have powerful meaning to me. Today I did here the “theme” of the season I feel God has me in. Kari Jobe We Are So I will; share that one.

  2. Blessings and Great post,
    Praise Him by David Crowder, How He loves by David Crowder, How Great is Our God, and Amazing Grace.

    Thanks for sharing brother, God bless you exceedingly abundantly:)

  3. “Here I am” and “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus there is something about that name” And so many more. Hey, I can relate–I make up praise songs all day long whenever I need to–warding off the enemy. My grandson thinks I’m crazy because I will sing–out loud–whatever comes to mind to break the power of any attack!

  4. The two current faves are Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) and God’s Great Dance Floor.
    Oceans came out just after I had surgery on my right foot, putting me in a cast for a month, followed by a month in a walking boot, and soon, physical therapy. The idea of learning to walk where our feet may not be able to stand unaided really struck home. My wife then reminded me of a story where our daughter almost drowned in the ocean. She cried out “Mommy” before dropping into the water, and my wife’s eyes locked with hers. My wife was able to catch her and pull her back up. She loves the aspect of keeping our eyes above the waves, locked on Christ. So it’s powerful for both of us.
    Dance Floor is great because of Zeph 3:17 and the thought that God dances over us. Plus it’s hard not to get into it when we think of His great love. We love because He loves, we live because He lives… and we dance because He dances over us first.

  5. All the praise and worship songs! But the only one I can remember easily without the music playing is “Jesus is the Answer for the world today, above Him there’s no other, Jesus is the Way!” Al Denson did it back in early 90’s, now I think Michael W Smith has done it.

  6. I’m surprised that you include Jennifer Knapp as so many are afraid to touch her or her work now. Her lyrics, in the song you include, are so true and so ironic as to be most painful. All I know for sure is pray. I do not judge because I cannot – I don’t know her or her situation at present. I know God changes us.
