Music Monday

sometimes music captures what is in our hearts and ministers. i desperately wish i could sit at the piano or strum a guitar and just sing what is in my heart, but alas Jesus figured differently when He decided what gifts to give me. i probably would have been vain had i been a musician thinking i was the hip in hippopatamus crooning to my Jesus music. but anyway, sometimes i, when very alone and quiet will sing my own song, i think He finds joy in our songs no matter the talent or not. in fact we know He loves and desires that devotion and swell of love or outcry of our Spirit for Him. for backup on that please refer to pretty much any chapter in Psalm.


ok so on to music monday. this week’s song is by Tenth Avenue North. i am pretty much in love with all their stuff and should be a reviewer for them. i think i could write a short devotional book based off their lyrics alone and truly letting God heal and love on us. there is something to be said about really allowing God to love you. anyway, this song, “By Your Side”,

i think it’s Jesus song to me right now as He fights to hold me and revive me.

Why are you striving these days
Why are you trying to earn grace
Why are you crying
Let me lift up your face
Just don’t turn away

Why are you looking for love
Why are you still searching as if I’m not enough
To where will you go child
Tell me where will you run
To where will you run

And I’ll be by your side
Wherever you fall
In the dead of night
Whenever you call
And please don’t fight
These hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you

Look at these hands and my side
They swallowed the grave on that night
When I drank the world’s sin
So I could carry you in
And give you life
I want to give you life

Cause I, I love you
I want you to know
That I, I love you
I’ll never let you go
