Musical Mondays

What do you think of this song by Christina Aguilera?

I turn to you:

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gbb2D4fL5Q8]

Her voice is so unexpected. When I first heard her, I was shocked to see such a massively ginormous voice streaming out from this young, tiny girl.

Man, that girl can sing.

And this song. . . whew. Have you ever just sat and listened to or, better yet, read the lyrics? Pretty inspirational as far as I’m concerned.

My favs are:
When I lose the will to win
I just reach for you and
I can reach the sky again.
I can do anything
‘Cause your love is so amazing,
‘Cause your love inspires me.

Who does this for you in your life?

There Will Be A Day, Jeremy Camp.

jeremy_07I know, I’ve spotlighted Jeremy Camp before…a few times. But I saw him in concert March 27th, and I just had to share another song of his with you.

He’s got such a great story, and his music reflects that.

He went through a lot with his first wife (who died of cancer.) He had many reasons to turn from faith or get stuck in his anger, but instead, he turned to God.

He’s so inspiring.

These lyrics are the best (In my opinion):

I know the journey seems so long
You feel your walking on your own
But there has never been a step
Where you’ve walked out all alone

***It just brings home for me that we NEVER walk alone. EVER! God’s always by our side.***

MUSICAL MONDAYS–Shelby Daniels Week

superchickHi everyone. I’m Shelby Daniels. Yep, the one Lynn chronicles in her Light of Truth trilogy. She wrote three books about my whacked-out life. How cool is that?

I harped on her for, like, three weeks to let me host her blog. She finally relented and said I could have free reign this whole week.

The whole week!

Oh yeah! This is gonna be fun.

Lynn said that she usually talks about Music on Mondays. Heck yeah! I’m way into music. So, I shuffled through my 2,000 songs on my i-pod and found one I think you’ll like.

Well, I hope you like it.

Stay tuned this week…it’s gonna be a fun one!

So, I’m totally into this song by Superchick. Now, Lynn said she’d already featured Superchick here before, but I had to show you this song anyway.

Hero, by Superchick.

These are my favorite lyrics:

No one talks to her, she feels so alone
She’s in too much pain to survive on her own
The hurt she can’t handle overflows to a knife
She writes on her arm, wants to give up her life
Each day she goes on is a day that she is brave,
Fighting the lie that giving up is the way,
Each moment of courage her own life she saves
When she throws out the pills a hero is made

Heroes are made when you make a choice; You could be a hero
Heroes do what’s right; You could be a hero
You might save a life; You could be a hero, You could join the fight
For what’s right for what’s right for what’s right

Now, before I “found the light” I totally struggled with wanting to kill myself. Heck, I even had the razors all picked out. Even thought of jumping off the bridge I used to get drunk at every night.

**yeah, scary**

I think that’s why I love this song so much. Life is a choice. After God finally got through to my cold heart, I realized I could be a hero.

And no, not a hero just because I can see the future and heal people injuries – although that is wicked cool – but a hero through my actions.

Through my choices.

Hope you liked the song.

Be sure to come back tomorrow, I hear Tuesdays and Wednesdays are kind of a “free” days so I can write about whatever I want. I can’t believe Lynn said I could have the whole week….she doesn’t know what she’s getting into.  **wink**

MUSICAL MONDAYS

timmcgraw2You just never know what type of music you’ll find in the spotlight on Musical Mondays here on the Light of Truth blog, huh?  **smile**

I guess that’s the idea.

Maybe we’ll even feature Eminem some day…… But today’s not that day.

Instead, I’m posting Country Music.  Yep, I’m a closet county music lover…Ok, not lover, but, I don’t mind it. And anything Tim McGraw does is pretty much awesome. This song’s amazing. I hope you take time to see the video I’ve linked.

You’ll be impacted, I promise.

Now typically you won’t find country music on my I-Pod, but I’ve known about this song for a while and thought it was time to talk it up.  It has a great message. I almost posted all the lyrics here, because it was hard to choose which ones affected me the most. But, I chose the following. These lyrics threw me for a loop. It’s hauntingly true.

He said “I was finally the husband,
That most the time I wasn’t.
And I became a friend a friend would like to have.
And all of a sudden going fishing,
Wasn’t such an imposition,
And I went three times that year I lost my Dad.
Well, I finally read the Good Book,
And I took a good long hard look,
At what I’d do if I could do it all again,
And then:

I went sky diving, I went rocky mountain climbing,
I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fumanchu.
And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter,
And I gave forgiveness I’d been denying.
And he said: “Some day, I hope you get the chance,
“To live like you were dying.”
