still good


when the sun starts to rise and I open my eyes
You are good, 
so good

in the heat of the day with each stone that I lay
You are good

with every breath I take in-
I'll tell You I am grateful again

for when the moon climbs high before each kiss goodnight
You are good

when the road starts to turn around each bend I've learned
You are good, 
so good

and when somebody's hand holds me up, helps me stand
You are so good

with every breath I take in
I'll tell You I'm grateful again
'cause it's more than enough just to know I am loved
for I know You are good

so, how can I thank You?
what can I bring?
what can these poor hands lay at the feet of my King?

I'll sing You a love song, 
it's all that I have.
I'll tell you I'm grateful 
for you are holding my life in Your hands

but when it's dark and it's cold,
 and I can't feel my soul
You are so good,
still good.

when the world is gone gray and the rain is here to stay
You are still good

And the storm may swell 
yet even then
It is well and 
You are, 
so good

{paraphrase from the song You Are Good, by Nichole Nordman}

worship playlist 8.16


Ever feel like you're stuck in a music rut? Yeah, me too. So today I'm sharing my worship playlist with you in hopes that you find some new material!

I listen to this playlist all. the. time. Most consistently, I listen to it while I put on my make-up/brush teeth/do hair/wash face/ect. in the morning. It helps wake me up and have some Jesus time first thing. You may also notice I have quite a few live versions. Live versions drive me crazy at times, but these I all love. There're often longer, yet it seams easier for me to worship along with some of the live versions for whatever reason.
Enjoy!

'15

 
 
 
I woke up in darkness surrounded by silence
Oh where, where have I gone?
I woke to reality losing its grip on me
Oh where, where have I gone?
'Cause I can see the light before I see the sunrise
You called and You shouted
Broke through my deafness
Now I'm breathing in and breathing out
I'm alive again
You shattered my darkness
Washed away my blindness
Now I'm breathing in and breathing out
I'm alive again
Late have I loved You
You waited for me
I searched for You
What took me so long?
I was looking outside
As if love would ever want to hide
I'm finding I was wrong
'Cause I could feel the wind before it hits my skin
You called and You shouted
Broke through my deafness
Now I'm breathing in and breathing out
I'm alive again
You shattered my darkness
Washed away my blindness
Now I'm breathing in and breathing out
I'm alive again, I'm alive again
'Cause I want You, yes, I want You, I need You
And I'll do whatever I have to just to get through
'Cause I love You, yeah, I love You
You called and You shouted
Broke through my deafness
Now I'm breathing in and breathing out
I'm alive again
You shattered my darkness
Washed away my blindness
Now I'm breathing in and breathing out
I'm alive again

-Alive Again
Matt Maher

What I've Been Listening To

(photo via http://psd.fanextra.com/articles/25-inspiring-examples-of-music-photography/)

Today, I'm going to give you a miniature playlist of a few of my current favorite songs. These are the guys playing over and over and over on my ipod. I hope you enjoy, and maybe get some new favorites!
   
    Before I start though, I have to tell you something. I have weird eclectic taste in music. I have a love for pop, really good worship music, I love classical, and I will always have a soft spot in my heart for musicals. I love indie rock, and some classic rock. I am that person that doesn't care for country music. (Sorry country music fans!)

1. Beautiful Things by Gungor 

2. Thrift Shop by Postmodern Jukebox

3. Like Real People Do by Hozier

4. Holy Spirit by Francesca Battiatelli

5. Waltz of the Flowers by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Q: What have you been listening to?

Discover new blogs- Liebster Award


Hello friends! Yesterday I was nominated for the Liebster award by Mikayla from The Bubblegum Ballerina.  The purpose if this is too meet and discover new blogs, and I am so excited to participate. Read on to hear the answers to the questions Mikayla asked me! 


1. What is the funniest thing you've done this week? 
      This wasn't as much funny as humiliating at the time, but looking back, it was kind of funny. My mom and I were out running errands, and one of our stops was Target. We each found what we needed, and met up at the checkout. My mom, upon realizing she had forgotten to grab something, left me with our cart in line. The only checkout line open. I started checking out our stuff, and pretty soon I was left with two things in the card. Two packages of pads. Lots of pads. I hand the packages to the 20-something checkout guy, (without making eye contact) and he proceeds to plop them right on top of the cart. And my mom is still not back. The line has grown. I'm standing, waiting awkwardly while everyone in line is staring at the pads in my cart. I just wanted to scream, "I HAVE SISTERS, okay?!?!?!?" It was terrible.  


2. Are you on summer break? If so, what are you doing with your free time? 
     I am on summer break for the most part; twiddling my thumbs. No, I have been heavily rehearsing for a show that just ended this weekend. I've also been babysitting :) 

3. What is ONE of your favorite songs? 
     Hmmm, I am definitely a music junkie. However, I'm a bit obsessed with the music from The Lion King right now, and I especially love They Live in You.





   
4. If you could do anything right now, what would it be? 
     Buy a plane ticket to Hawaii, and vist my friend Jayna. Who doesn't want to go to Hawaii?
 
5. What book(s) are you reading right now? 
      This is kind of embarrassing, but I recently picked up some of the Miss. Piggle Wiggle books. These where childhood favorites of mine, and I am loving rereading them! I've also been trying to make a habit of picking up my Bible regularly, which is serving me well. :)
 
6. What's your favorite part of blogging? 
      Hmm, I definitely enjoy most aspects of blogging, so it is hard to pick a favorite! However, by far the most rewarding thing is receiving comments from readers who were able to relate to my content, and be encouraged. It makes my day, every time!
 
7. What are some of your blogging goals? 
      Well, my number one goal is to write helpful content that reminds readers that they are not alone! I try to be honest and vulnerable in my writing, because as young women, it is easy to isolate ourselves and feel like we are the only ones.  
      Selfishly, I would love to grow my readers, but if I can touch one heart through this blog, then it is worth it.
 
8. What's the hardest part about blogging for you? 
      Staying motivated to post frequently. I sometimes wonder if anyone even reads this silly, little blog, and I can certainly make a number of excuses to not post.
 
9. What is your favorite word?
      As far as sounds, and the English language goes, definitely the word prologue. But love is another important word to me. I write it on little notes to myself everywhere.
 
10. Could you share a miscellaneous fact about yourself for us?
       I love to play violin and piano. Not at the same time. Is that lame?
 
11. Sweet or unsweetened tea?
        This is a trick question! Sweet tea is too sweat, but I can't stand unsweetened tea unless the tea itself is good tea. So does unsweetened tea, with some raw sugar count?

I would like to nominate the following bloggers:



   Elizabeth at Whimsical Thoughts 
Jayna at Letters to Elissa


I will be sending questions your way!
