What It Means To Me

Water is a funny thing in music. It can be portrayed as refreshing and it can be portrayed as overwhelming. I love this song because it reminds me that, even though life can be hard and stressful, if we turn to God, things become refreshingly better.

What It Means To Me

I first heard this song when I watched God’s Not Dead. I feel like this is a really encouraging song and reminds me that God is always there. There really isn’t much else to say except that I love this song. What do you think about it?


Christmas Songs I Love Listening To

Happy day 4 of December! It still doesn’t feel like December to me but I guess I’ll get used to it the closer it gets to Christmas. Here are some Christmas songs that I love listening to around this time of year.


Carol of the bells – Straight No Chaser

Christmas is here, Bringing good cheer to young and old, Meek and the bold
Ding, dong, ding, dong, That is their song, With joyful ring, All caroling

The Christmas Can-Can – Straight No Chaser

It’s time to do the Christmas can-can, If you can’t, can’t dance, well, that’s OK (not going to do the kick line). All you need is a tree, some lights about a thousand presents, wrap them up and pray for snow. Run to your closet, find your Christmas sweater screaming carols all the way (fa-la-la-la-la). Maine all the way to California it’s the Christmas can-can Halloween to Christmas day

The 12 Days of Christmas – Straight No Chaser

On the 9th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, 9 ladies dancing, 8 ladies dancing, 7 ladies dancing, 6 ladies dancing, 5! Better not shout, you better not cry, You better not, in a pear tree. On the 9th, No! On the 8th, No! On the 7th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me 7 swans a-swimming, 6 geese a-laying, 5 golden rings! (Fa la la la)

Hold On Christmas – MercyMe

The colder it gets outside, The more it warms my soul. Christmas is on my mind, I just gotta make it home. It won’t be long ‘till I am singing to the rhythm of the Salvation Army bell ringing, But this road keeps going for miles and miles. Oh please get me there on time.

I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day – Casting Crowns

Then rang the bells more loud and deep, God is not dead, nor doth He sleep (Peace on Earth, peace on Earth), The wrong shall fail, the right prevail With peace on earth, good will to men, Then ringing singing on its way The world revolved from night to day, A voice, a chime, a chant sublime, Of peace on earth, good will to men

Joy – 1 Girl Nation

I hear the carols on the radio. So turn it up and let the whole world know. Because I’ve got a love that’s so There is no greater joy. I hear it in the bells they’re ringing up and down the street. I see it shining in the smiles of everyone I meet. It feels to me like hope is stirring with the winter wind. Heaven has sent us a savior. What a night there is no greater!

The Chipmunk Song – Alvin & The Chipmunks

Christmas, Christmas time is near, Time for toys and time for cheer, We’ve been good, but we can’t last, Hurry Christmas, hurry fast, Want a plane that loops the loop, Me, I want a hula hoop, We can hardly stand the wait, Please Christmas, don’t be late.

Ding Dong Merrily On High – Rend Collective

Ding Dong! Ding Dong! Ding Dong! Ding Dong! Ding Dong merrily on high, The curse of sin is broken: Ding Dong open up your eyes, The celebration’s starting! Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis! Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

Merry Christmas Everyone – Rend Collective

C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S I-S-T-M-A-S Yes it’s Christmas! Snow is Falling, All around me, Children Playing, Having Fun, It’s the Season, Of Love and understanding, Merry Christmas Everyone.

Shout For Joy – Lincoln Brewster

He was strong to save, Now our Savior reigns in us, Shout for joy, For the Son of God Is the Saving One, He’s the Saving One, Shout for joy, See what love has done, He has come for us, He’s the Saving One

Music I’m Listening To

Hey, everyone! How are you? I’m doing great! I had an a cappella performance yesterday and it went really well! It was really fun hanging out with my acafam (a cappella family). Speaking of singing, here are some songs that I’m listening to.


The Way by Worship Central

“I was blind but these eyes have been opened, Now I walk in the light, Every step on this road, I will follow Jesus, You made a way… All my days are secure in Your promise, Never standing alone, You’re the Truth, You’re the Life, You’re my future Jesus, You made a way”

Who Care’s If We’re Dancing by OBB

“How great our God That he came for us, That he, that he came for us, ‘Cause the more we fall And the more we break, The more He shows us grace, So how could we just sit down With the love that we’ve found”

Brand New by Ben Rector

“Like when I close my eyes and don’t even care if anyone sees me dancing, Like I can fly, and don’t even think of touching the ground, Like a heartbeat skip, like an open page… It’s the way that I feel when I’m with you, brand new”

Trust You All The Way by About A Mile

“So when it feels like hope has come to an end, And I find myself in the lion’s den, I will face my fears knowing I’m not alone, And call out the giant with a sling and a stone singing, I trust in You, trust in You, When it’s hard to say, I trust in You, trust in You, Trust you all the way”

We Are One by Chelsea Hathaway

“He’s adopted us, He calls us His daughters, calls us His sons, We’re children of the Most High God, Called to love, called to be One, We look to Your cross, look to Your cross at all times, Help us to love as You love, We are one, we’re one”

Here Is Our Savior by Chelsea Hathaway

“You came as a tiny Child, away from the Father’s side, waitingnn for the coming time, when You could give Your life for mine, Holy Child at Your feet we fall, Jesus Christ, You are Lord of all, the Child in the mager is God, Here is our Savior.”

Take My Heart by Tom Smith

“Oh, Savior of my soul, You have made me whole, Savior of my soul, Your love has conquered all, take my heart, I’m Yours, forever Yours.”

What songs are you listening to right now? Let me know! I’d love to hear from you! I hope you have a great day!
