Skillet – Legendary
This song may be a little heavy for some people, but it’s awesome!
It’s inspiring!

What really excited me is that this Christian band was on the iTunes top releases for May. How cool is that?

“Wings are made to fly, made to fly (Made to fly)
Fears are born to die, born to die (Born to die)
Pushin’ through the pain, through the pain (Through the pain)
Pushin’ through, breakin’ through
Whatever it takes, what I gotta do
Givin’ my all, givin’ all that I’ve got
Never will stop ’til I get to the top”

Don’t give in! Press on.
Read Philippians 4:13 (
You can do it!


Taylor Swift – Me
What a fun song, right?
And have you seen the video? Must have been so fun making it.
What I like about the video is the “joy” it comes with. So colourful!
Life can be too grey at times. Add the colour. Add the fun.

Fanta once had this slogan “The fun will find you.”

The lyrics say:
“Me-e-e, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
I’m the only one of me
Baby, that’s the fun of me
Eeh-eeh-eeh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh”

Those are confident lyrics!
Stop trying to be someone else?

If you need to know how uniquely you are made.
Go and dive into Psalm 139 (
The whole Psalm is brilliant!


Bastille – Joy

Mental Health is spoken about a lot these days.
For many, it’s a real struggle. For others, they seem to have “jumped on the band wagon” and believe a lie about themselves.

But what I am hopeful about is that popular bands like Bastille are addressing the issue.

“Oh Joy, when you call me
I was giving up, oh, I was giving in
Joy, set my mind free
I was giving up, oh, I was giving in”

We can look at the dark and disappointing things. Or we can welcome in Joy.

Read Nehemiah 8:10 (
Hold onto God’s joy. Focus on it. Live in it.


Mumford & Sons – Beloved
This is a sad song. But it’s a song that carries a beautiful reminder:

“Before you leave
You must know you are beloved
And before you leave
Remember I was with you”

When last have you told your mom, dad, brother, or sister that you love them?
Truth is, people won’t always be around. Appreciate the time you have with them – remind them you love them.

And speaking of love. Have you paused to think about how much God loves you? The lyrics of today’s song reminded me of Jeremiah 31:3 (

He loves you not just for a week. His love is everlasting!
