Music for Your Monday: "Eye on It" by Tobymac

Let’s pretend that I’m still running, shall we? If I were still running and had an upcoming race, this week’s Music for Your Monday song would definitely make my playlist. “Eye on It” by TobyMac is the perfect running song: infectious, with a steady, uptempo beat. I like to think it helped me achieve my 5k PR back in October. If you run or do other exercise, what songs help motivate you?

Music for Your Monday: "Liberty" by Shane & Shane

This week’s installment of Music for Your Monday features another one of my favorite songs. I could listen to “Liberty” by Shane & Shane over and over again. The song takes its inspiration straight from Galatians 5:1, one of my favorite verses, which says, “For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” I need the reminder that I have been set free on a daily basis, and this song is just a gorgeous representation of that biblical truth. There are lot of layers to the song, and Shane & Shane have excellent vocal harmonies. I hope you enjoy it! 

Music for Your Monday: "Your Great Name" by Natalie Grant

Music for Your Monday is a new blog series I’m starting that will allow me to share with you some songs that I am enjoying. The first one is my current favorite song, and if you are my friend on Facebook or Instagram, you’ve already seen me post about it. I don’t know a lot of Natalie Grant’s music, but I want to now, after hearing this song. I absolutely love the lyrics, especially “Every fear has no place, at the sound of Your great name/The enemy, he has to leave, at the sound of Your great name.” I have been listening to this song on repeat in my car and have just let my heart soak up the truth in the words. I hope you like it and are encouraged by it as well!

Here are the lyrics:

Verse 1: 
Lost are saved, find their way, at the sound of Your great name.
All condemned feel no shame, at the sound of Your great name.
Every fear has no place, at the sound of Your great name.
The enemy, he has to leave, at the sound of Your great name.
 

Chorus: 
Jesus, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain for us, 
Son of God and ManYou are high and lifted up,
And all the world will praise your great name.
 
Verse 2: 

All the weak find their strength, at the sound of Your great name.
Hungry souls receive grace, at the sound of Your great name. 

The fatherless, they find their rest, at the sound of Your great name

Sick are healed, and the dead are raised, at the sound of Your great name.
 

Bridge: 
Redeemer, My Healer, Lord Almighty 
My savior, Defender, You are My King
