    Wednesday, October 10, 2018

    "Lord, I see You in everything, all day 
    And every beat of my heart keeps reminding me 
    I see You in every little thing, all day 
    No matter where I go I know Your love is finding me...
    "Lyrics from "Everything" by TobyMac

    In this Behind The Music TobyMac talks about how God didn't settle for showing him just "something" to craft a song from. Instead, God showed him  "Everything"...

    "I walked in the studio that day with a fresh song to write. Yep, a new song in my heart. And, I'm gonna fight to keep looking for God in everything, all day." - TobyMac, "Everything"

    With this song story fresh in your mind, take a look at the Official Music Video for "Everything." In it, TobyMac uses some cool imagery to express the opportunity we have to see God in 'every little thing, all day'. The ending is especially touching...

    The Inspiring Story Behind Hillsong United's New Song "Not Today"

    Friday, September 21, 2018

    "I believe that God is faithful to His word and we have nothing to be afraid of. So this song is fun. It's indignant in the right ways ... it's designed to be a confession that we sing ... let the devil know not today!"

                                                                                                                               - Joel Houston, Hillsong UNITED

    Recently, Joel Houston and Taya Smith of Hillsong UNITED sat down and talked about the stories behind their new song "Not Today." Taya, offering her perspective from the unique position of leading people into the worship experience, says this about the lyrics and song flow:

    "It is like a progression; because, you know, we're singing: 'Tell the devil no not today. I'll sing the night into the morning, I'll sing the fear into Your name or Your praise.' And, I love that because it's like you're telling your soul what you're actually gonna do and you're telling yourself that's what my reaction is gonna be.

    And, as the song progresses, that part gets bigger and then, just at the end, it's just like I'm basically just going for it and roaring." Taya continues, "And, I hope in that moment it would encourage people. And, if they need a confession and they need a reminder of what our stance should actually be as Christians, that they would be encouraged in that and they would be like, 'Hey, I can sing this.'"

    "I get these thoughts inside my head
    What if I don't have what it takes
    What if things don't ever change
    Don't leave room for You, but

    What if you're holding me up
    What if your love is enough
    What if the power in Your name
    Could do anything
    What if you're making me strong
    What if you were here all along
    What if I'm right where you want me."
    Lyrics from " What If " by Blanca
