Musical Mondays is about our favorite music. If you’re a writer, does it inspire your creativity? Cure writer’s block? If you’re not a writer, what do your favorite songs do for you?


I’m a huge fan of Natalie Grant‘s singing. Strong voice. Pure message. Right up my alley. Sure-I like to rock out a little, but sometimes when I slow it down, I get a message that really hits home.

Last week was an interesting week of ups and downs-with both my normal every day life and my world of writing.

What is nice to know is that I have a rock…well, really two…on which I stand:  God and Charlie (my hubby). So, I thought this song was perfect to start the week off….

Of the many lyrics found in this facinating song, these are the most important for me:

I am strong
All because of you




Who’s your rock on which you stand during the ups and downs life tends to throw at you?

  1. I love Natalie Grant. I have always loved that song and it makes me cry every time, but seeing the video gives it a totally different take, and of course I cried again. That part where she says, “It’s like the breath of Jesus is right here in this room” gets me every time. Thaks for sharing. I hope your week is getting better.

  2. Beth–glad you liked the song. She is such a great singer. Wonderful lyrics.

    Billy–liking this song doesn’t jeopardize your man card…Yes, the ups have balanced the downs, and we all have tough weeks sometimes…

    Thanks for stoppin’ by you guys.

  3. Who’s my rock? God and my wife, no doubt about it. Without either one of them, I’d be very, very lost.

    Loved the song, Lynn. I like Natalie Grant, even if it puts my man card in jeopardy.

    And I hope the ups balanced out the downs of last week…

  4. I’d never heard “In Better Hands”–and I took time to find and read the lyrics too.
    I liked how the homeless man held up all the different cardboard signs with words expressing the emotions so many of us feel: pain, broken, loneliness, guilt …
    Who’s my rock?
