From what I can remember, January was a good month. We went ice skating, continued to nest in our new home, saw Gungor in concert (AMAZING show! See them live if you can!), and spent lots of time with friends. We are loving our small group and really enjoying doing life with some wonderful people. AND, I'm going to be an auntie! I'm so thrilled for my brother and sister-in-law. #babyzoub
There were also some hard moments. Moments of doubt, arguments, mild depression, fear, and anger. I won't pretend like the bad staff didn't happen in January. But, in the good times and the bad times, I found my resolution to be oh so helpful. I sang my song over and over again, and the music spoke truth and shed light into my heart. You have come to save us, Lord.
For this month, February, I wanted to choose a song that could act in the same way. A song that would be a truthful reminder, a sharp weapon against negative thoughts + feelings, an exclamation of praise. And I think I found the perfect one. I chose, "You Saved My Soul" by Rivers & Robots. Rivers & Robots is a talented, young indie worship band out of Manchester, UK. I highly recommend their album, Take Everything (2012). I love their bright, layered sound, and their intricate, Psalm-like lyrics.
I pray that God will use this song in my life over the next month. Give it a listen and let me know what you think. I look forward to updating you, bloggy friends, on what God gives me with this song.
How are your resolutions going?
Let the new song arise
From every tongue and tribe
Every mountain high
And every valley
Let our love burn bright
All through the darkest night
Let the flames take flight
To the one who gave it all to have my heart
And from the very start, He knew every part of me
Who I would be, and how He'd make me to give Him glory
Beautiful one, You saved my soul
You are my everything, You make me whole
What can I give but give my all?
You're so deserving
So I will love You Lord
With all my heart and soul
All my mind and strength
Just like You told us to and
You are here
Your spirit lives in me
You've opened my eyes to see
You are no more behind a temple wall, You gave Your life for all
Waiting for an open heart to open wide, and You'd come inside
And breathe new life
from Take Everything, released 20 July 2012
