I love that the theme of resurrecting dead bones has been so prevalent throughout this series. As we wrap up the series today, Awake My Soul by Chris Tomlin once again speaks of coming alive through the breath of God. I come alive when You speak to me The Lord speaks to me through His word, and through worship. I can breathe. Yeah, I’m not alone, I realize I breathe out, I come alive Your Word gives life to my dry bones Your breath tells death it can ride on Awake me, make me a living stone, A testament to your throne, I I’m nothingREAD MORE

Today’s song, Build Your Kingdom Here by Rend Collective, is one on my favorite worship songs EVER. If you come and visit, there’s a 99% chance you’ll walk in on me uncontrollably dancing, and singing it at the top of my lungs. I love the call for revival. Don’t you think that REVIVAL is what our country needs the most at this particular point in history? Because I could not pick a specific stanza to share with you, here are the complete lyrics. Feel free to turn up the volume, hit play and sing along, as you already know I am. Build Your kingdom hereREAD MORE

I’ve been blessed with great friendships in my life. These friendships have seen my family go through serious struggles, and they have prayed and cried with us at times, and us with them. These friends have encouraged our walk with Christ and continue to keep us accountable to doing all things in order to honor the King. As important and wonderful as these friendships have been, they pale in comparison to the friendship offered to us by the King of Kings. Today’s song, Who is This King by Pocket Full of Rocks reminds us who we lift our praise to. He is the King who saysREAD MORE

I first heard this song while trying to minister to someone I love very much. She was looking for answers to really hard questions about her past, and even tougher questions about her future. This song was playing in the car as we spoke. While at a red light she repeated the following lyrics: But my joy has been on holiday And my peace has almost passed away Tell me I’m forgiven and free O He died, He died to rectify my hopeless situation And His blood commands my guilt to leave Now on Calvary I stand Empty pockets, open hands O there is noREAD MORE

Todays’ song is I Am Mountain by Gungor. I had second, third and even fourth thoughts about including this song. So far I’ve shared songs that have encouraged me, I’ve shared lyrics that remind me of Bible passages, and I’ve shared songs that helped strengthen my Christian walk. This is not one of those songs. Why then, would I include it in a series that is intended to bring encouragement? On day 2 of this series I mentioned that is not uncommon to sing a song, without really thinking about what we’re saying. You’re thinking about the kids, work, dinner, all while singing along. This isREAD MORE

Todays song All Around Me by Flyleaf is not your typical worship song, I’m aware of that. However this is a song I love. I love the intimate relationship with the Lord that it implies. Please watch the video and listen to the lyrics, before reading on. (This post contains affiliate links, see my full disclosure here.) Flyleaf’s lead singer Lacy Sturm was a guest speaker at my church about a year ago. Lacey shared her powerful testimony, and how the Lord truly brought beauty from ashes. There was such passion in every word she uttered, such a deep desire for God, and a type ofREAD MORE

I’m sure you’ve heard today’s song at one time or another. This is another one of those that has brought me to tears. Oh, it’s love so undeniable I, I can hardly speak Have you heard of Periscope? I discovered Periscope a little over a year ago, and the some of the people I’ve met have become a big part of my life. One of the first people I started following on Periscope was Lara Marriott. She’s part of a homeschool group for homeschool moms. I was drawn to her transparency in every broadcast. Lara is a worship leader, song writer, voice coach, blogger, andREAD MORE

I warned you, this is the 4th rend Collective song in this series, and it is not the last. I like to dance, but then again I’ve already said that too. This is another song, that makes me want to get up and dance. I mean, how can you help dancing, knowing that He has given us a heart and a home? When I think of fireworks, I think of great celebrations, like the 4th of July, the coming of the New Year or  fireworks display at the end of each day at Disneyland. Fireworks are exiting, they are loud, and they are reserved forREAD MORE

Ever Be is a new favorite of mine. My 9 and 11-year-old girls have been singing this song non-stop. They’re teaching themselves how to play it on the piano. I’m a Sunday school teacher and I have the immense privilege to hear about a hundred 4 to 7 year olds lifting their little voices in worship. There’s nothing quite like it. While I don’t have a video of children singing, I urge you to sing out loud, as you play the video below. Did you sing it? It’s hard not to. Bringing beauty from ashes For You will have Your bride In Luke chapter 4,READ MORE

I took the picture above while on a hike with my girls a few weeks ago. This cross is located at the very top of a nearby hill and not that long ago it was a great point of controversy in our city. You see, the land it sits on was once privately owned, but was later donated to the city and it became public property. A group of atheists who didn’t even live in the county heard about the cross and demanded it be taken down. After several city council hearings and Christian groups coming together enough money was raised to buy the .43READ MORE

  Have you ever seen Phil Wickham perform this song live? I have, and let me tell you it’s fantastic every time. You can see his love and devotion to the Lord with every strum. This is one of those songs that you can’t help but dance to in total celebration of amazing grace. Today I share this song simply because I am overwhelmed by the grace He has granted me and I want to sing for all that he has done for me. How can I pray for you? Feel free to leave a comment below, or e-mail me at prayer@themusingsofmum.com. To catch theREAD MORE

As a full-time working, homeschooling mom, who moonlights as a blogger, I can honestly say I’m worn. Today’s song however is not about physical exhaustion, but a desire for spiritual rest and awakening. If you’ve been following this series, you know I’ve been openly sharing my heart each time. Each song has been a personal prayer that at some point or another declared exactly what I couldn’t articulate on my own. Don’t get me wrong, I havent been going through a time of severe darkness, however I have experienced times of separation from the Lord, and I’ve struggled with having to live in two worlds atREAD MORE

On this 8th day of our 20 Days of Worship Through Song series, I am once again compelled to share a song by Rend Collective. Their songs have been in complete sync with my heart these days. I feel like the Lord is speaking to me through worship, and showing me the direction he wants me to take.  As always I’ve attached a video to this post, and I urge to hit play, close your eyes and just listen. Did you have the urge to dance? I’m one of those people who likes to dance. I don’t do it well, but dancing makes me happy, andREAD MORE

Welcome to day 7 of the 20 Days of Worship Through Song series. Today’s song is I Wonder by Leeland.   When I first heard this song, I was at a women’s retreat, right in the middle of a dry season. I arrived on a Friday night, thinking of how many things I needed to get done as soon as I got home that Sunday. I was consumed with concerns of financial burdens that needed to be met, I was distracted by a recent disagreement with my sister. I was eager to leave as soon as I arrived. I just didn’t feel like I couldREAD MORE

[mailerlite_form form_id=1] Thank you for joining me on day 6 of our 20 Days of Worship Through Song series.  Today’s song is Your Love is Extravagant by Casting Crowns. According the Oxford dictionary the word extravagant means lacking restraint in spending money or using resources, costing too much, exceeding what is reasonable or appropriate; absurd. I think this is the perfect word to describe the love that drove Christ to this extreme sacrifice. The ripping of His flesh caused by the lashing, the ridicule, the rejection. He loves you and me that much. No restraint.   Oh what is man that you are mindful of Him? True extravagant love. My husbandREAD MORE

Thank you for joining me on day 5 of this 20 Days of Worship Through Song series. I encourage you to click on the graphic at the end of the page to catch up on previous days in case you’ve missed them. (This post contains affiliate links, see my full disclosure here.) Today’s song is What Do I Know of Holy by Addison Road. Have you ever sat in church and felt like the message that was being preached, or the story that was being told was just for you? Remember the conviction of the Holy Spirit? Or how humbled you felt that the Lord wouldREAD MORE

When I created the list of songs I wanted to share with you this month I jotted down notes of what I wanted to discuss each day. As I prayed over today’s post the notes no longer made sense. At first I though about moving this song to a later date, and give myself some time to review what I wanted to say, however I decided to keep each song in the order the Lord inspired. (This post contains affiliate links, see my full disclosure here.) Today’s song is Second Chance by Rend Collective. Their songs have really been speaking to me lately so be preparedREAD MORE

As day 3 of this writing challenge rolls around, I can’t help but see a theme within the songs the Lord has given me.  As I mentioned on yesterday’s post, I didn’t intend to put these in any particular order, but it is clear that when the Lord wants to speak to us He does. I pray He is speaking to you, as He is speaking to me. (This post contains affiliate links, see my full disclosure here.) Today’s song is Here for You by Matt Redman. This song inspires me to literally SHOUT praises. When was the last time you shouted words of praise? LetREAD MORE

When I came up with the list of the songs I’m sharing with you this month, I didn’t place them in any particular order, with the exception of day 1. It was the song that inspired this series after all. Also, had no intention of keeping a ‘theme’ within the songs, however the more I look at the list, the more I see the Lord had a theme in mind. (This post contains affiliate links, see my full disclosure here.) Today’s song, I Belong To You by Jesus Culture is an almost perfect follow up to yesterday post. I love how the Lord works. You canREAD MORE

On yesterday’s post, I mentioned a song had brought me to tears at a crowded bookstore.  Desert Soul by Rend Collective is the song that inspired me to seek a deeper relationship with my Savior.  I’ve been playing this song on repeat for weeks, and I’m still overcome with emotion nearly every time. (This post contains affiliate links, see my full disclosure here.) It speaks to me because after walking with the Lord for so many years, it’s easy to become complacent.  We go through the motions of being a good and obedient Christian. We attend church regularly, we tithe and we even serve, but howREAD MORE
