for KING & COUNTRY – burn the ships

Comment of the group

Are there ships you need to burn in your life? What from your past has kept you silent and held you back from freedom? This album, ‘Burn the Ships’ was conceived when my wife, Courtney was battling addiction and all that comes along with it…. She one day chose to literally “flush the pills”, and never look back. Now we invite you to stand with us – leave the past behind, step into a new day, and ‘Burn the Ships’.

The ships (struggles, bad habits, insecurities, distractions, and addictions) in our lives that need to be burned. Your ship is the largest negative aspect of your life that consumes you, your thoughts, and your daily being. These ships look completely different for each individual, yet everyone has them.

My comment : Sometimes we need to turn the page and look forward. Do not look backward. What you wanted to keep. Let it go. Your ship sometimes needs to be burnt. Your ship is the symbole to your old life. You still can go back with your ship. If you burn it you should stay. Your problem is past.

 

Step into a new day
We can rise up from the dust and walk away
We can dance upon our heartache, yeah
So light a match, leave the past, burn the ships
And don’t you look back

Changed

Jordan Feliz is one of my best christian artist in the moment. Changed is a funny video and nice song. The hat symbolize the grace we can have in Jesus. We can be changed. We can have hard time but we can overcome it and be changed.

 

 

[Verse 1]
Let me tell you, all my friends
About this joy I’m living in

[Pre-Chorus]
Let me take the mic, go on and testify
How I was dead and then I came to life
No more living in the dark of night
Now everything’s alright

[Chorus]
I’ve been changed, I’ve been saved
Brand new day
I’ve been changed, I’ve been changed
Tell me why would I turn back now?
There’s no end to the love I’ve found
Future’s bright and there ain’t no doubt
I’ve been changed, I’ve been changed

[Verse 2]
All my heartbreak fades away
Like a book when you turn the page

[Pre-Chorus]
Let me take the mic, go on and testify
How I was dead and then I came to life
No more living in the dark of night
Now everything’s alright

[Chorus]
I’ve been changed, I’ve been saved
Brand new day
I’ve been changed, I’ve been changed
Tell me why would I turn back now?
There’s no end to the love I’ve found
Future’s bright and there ain’t no doubt
I’ve been changed, I’ve been changed

[Interlude]
Woo-oh, woo-oh
Woo-oh, I’ve been changed
Woo-oh, woo-oh
Woo-oh

 

 

Family Force 5 – This Is My Year

This music is antidepressing. This is my year. If you have projects, you don’t need to wait more, GO ! This is your year.

Ain’t gonna be broken-hearted
Gonna leave my fear behind

I must translate english to english because I don’t understand the first version probably slang version of english.

My heart will not be brocken
I am going to leave my fear behind

And I’m not gonna waste my time –> I don’t understand the english gonna but that should be going
I am not going to waste my time.

Time it’s time to get things started : As I am a good procrastinater, this word speaks to me. Don’t push at tomorrow what you can make now.

God Help Me – PLUMB

God Help Me

I just discover this new singers PLUMB. Actually she is much more known in the secular world than in the christian music world. I like the sound and the melody. The first thing I should like in a song is the music what I hear. I even surprise me to wake up during a night with a music in my head. What is this music ? What is this melody ? When did I hear such music ? After a while I realise that is was this song.

I also like the words of this song. Very deap and touching. I could sing this song myself. What will you ask for me. It is not always as easy to know what we should do and to listen to the voice of God.

There is a wrestling in my heart and my mind
A disturbance and a tension I cannot seem to drive
And if I’m honest, there’s quite a bit of fear
To sit here in this silence and really hear You

What will You ask of me?
Will I listen to Your voice when You speak?

Help me to move, help me to see
Help me to do whatever You would ask of me
Help me to go, God help me to stay
I’m feeling so alone here
And I know that You’re faithful
But I can barely breathe
God help me

Sometimes things, they are black and white
Sometimes they are not and that leaves us torn inside
And in the middle, we are left to wonder
Who we are, what You want and where we’re going

Oh such a mystery
I don’t always understand
But I believe!

I don’t know the future, it’s one day at a time
But I know I’ll be okay with Your hand holding mine
So take all my resistance
Oh God I need Your grace
One step and then the other
Show me the way
Show me the way!

Help me to move, help me to see
Help me to do whatever You would ask of me
Help me to go, God help me to stay
I’m feeling so alone here
And I know that You’re faithful
But I can barely breathe
But I can barely breathe
But I can barely breathe
God help me

I refuse – Josh Wilson

I refuse – Josh Wilson

Sometimes I
I just want to close my eyes
And act like everyone’s alright
When I know they’re not

This world needs God
But it’s easier to stand and watch
I could say a prayer and just move on
Like nothing’s wrong

But I refuse
‘Cause I don’t want to live like I don’t care
I don’t want to say another empty prayer
Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse

I can hear the least of these
Crying out so desperately
And I know we are the hands and feet
Of You, oh God

So, if You say move
It’s time for me to follow through
And do what I was made to do
Show them who You are

‘Cause I don’t want to live like I don’t care
I don’t want to say another empty prayer
Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse

To stand and watch the weary and lost
Cry out for help
I refuse to turn my back
And try and act like all is well

I refuse to stay unchanged
To wait another day, to die to myself
I refuse to make one more excuse

‘Cause I don’t want to live like I don’t care
I don’t want to say another empty prayer
Oh, I refuse

To sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
Oh, I could choose
Not to move but I refuse

I refuse
I refuse

Kari Jobe – Heal Our Land

You take our lives
Flawed, yet beautiful
Restore, refine
Lord, You’re merciful

Redeem, revive

Spirit of God
Breathe on Your church
Pour out Your presence
Speak through Your word
We pray in every nation, Christ be known
Our hope and salvation, Christ alone

New power, new wine
As divisions fall
One church, one bride
Jesus, Lord of all

With one voice we cry

So, God we pray to You
Humble ourselves again
Lord, would You hear our cry
Lord, will You heal our land
That every eye will see
That every heart will know
The One who took our sin
The One who died and rose

And when Your kingdom comes
And when at last You call
We’ll rise to worship You alone
