This song is simple and absolutely beautiful! There isn’t anything fancy about the sound or the lyrics yet is speaks volumns… Jesus is the sweetest thing! I love the line that says “you make my heart sing.” How true this is, with the joy we have in Him our hearts can sing everyday! Hope this song speaks to you today as it did for me.

Sweetest Thing by Benjamin Dunn and Friends

You’re the sweetest thing

You’re the sweetest thing

You’re the sweetest thing, oh

You make my heart sing

Whoa, whoa, whoa

“Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—” John 1:12 (NIV)

This is such a great song, Eli and I have listened to it several times this morning. I love singing along to it because it puts me in such a great mood. No matter what kind of a day you might be having you are loved by God and that surpasses any trials we might face! I am God’s child so He is with me in all things!  Remember who you are in Christ!

Remind Me Who I Am by Jason Gray 

Verse 1:
When I lose My way,
And I forget my name,
Remind me who I am.
In the mirror all I see,
Is who I don’t wanna be,
Remind me who I am.
In the lonliest places,
When I can’t remember what grace is.

Chorus:
Tell me once again who I am to you.
Who I am to you.
Tell me lest I forget who I am to you.
That I belong to you.
To you.

Verse 2:
When my heart is like a stone,
And I’m running far from home,
Remind me who I am.
When I can’t recieve your love,
Afraid I’ll never be enough,
Remind me who I am.
If I’m your beloved,
Can you help me believe it.

Chorus:
Tell me once again who I am to you.
Who I am to you, Woh.
Tell me lest I forget who I am to you.
That I belong to you.
To you.

Bridge:
I’m the one you love,
I’m the one you love,
That will be enough,
I’m the one you love.

Chorus:2x
Tell me once again who I am to you.
Who I am to you.
Tell me lest I forget who I am to you.
That I belong to you, Woh.
To you.3x

I am not much of a singer, I love to sing… especially when it’s only me around and I can sing as loud as I want with no shame in the notes I attempt but fail reaching. I joke around with my husband saying that there are only three people in the world who like to hear me sing: God, my son and my husband. Growing up I was one of those kids that thought they could sing. I was always in choir, I would sing in front of the church and I never once doubted my abilities, I was completely confident, until I got a little older and realized my issues with staying on key, especially singing by myself. I have been told that I have a “choir voice” because I can match my key to the voice next to me, but on my own it’s really just a lost cause. When I first realized this about myself I was a little bummed because I wanted to be able to sing beautifully, now I don’t care. If my notes aren’t perfect sorry, that’s just what you get sometimes from me. God made me this way and the awesome thing is He loves to hear me sing, pitchy and all! AND He isn’t the only one… my son lights up when I start to sing his favorite songs. I may not have the best voice but the love is there and that is what matters! So today for Worship Song Friday I am singing my heart out and not going to care if I am off tune, today I am taking inspiration from these verses that encourage our singing.

“Sing to God, sing in praise of his name, extol him who rides on the clouds; rejoice before him—his name is the Lord.” Psalm 68:4 (NIV)

“Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts.” 1 Chronicles 16:9 (NIV)

“I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.” Psalm 104:33 (NIV)

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 (NIV) 

The worship song I picked for today by Gungor is You Have Me and not only is the song absolutely beautiful but so is the meaning behind it. Life can be a bumpy road sometimes but God never leaves us, He is always there holding onto us. I love the chorus how it talks about God is always faithful and good, we can always count on Him!

You Have Me by Gungor 

[verse:]
Out on the farthest edge
There in the silence you were there
My faith was torn to shreds
My heart out of balance
And you were there

[chorus:]
Always faithful
Always good
You still
Have me
You still have my heart

[verse:]
I thought I had seen the end everything broken
But you were there
I’ve wandered at Heaven’s gate
I’ve made my bed in Hell
But you were there still

[chorus]

You have me
You have me
You have my heart completely (6x)

It’s Friday and what a wonderful Friday it has been. This was a busy week and I had to remind myself that I can’t let the busy moments of life keep me from spending time with God and worshiping Him. Those times when life seems to be flying by are the most important to stop and make sure our focus is centered on God. So today take a moment, recharge yourself and worship our God with these worship verses.

“Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth.” Psalm 96:1 (NIV)  

“Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth.” Psalm 96:9 (NIV)

“Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy.” Psalm 99:5 (NIV)
