Monday Music — Because Life is Serious Enough

After three weeks of songs with the word Beautiful in the title, I promised you that the next Monday Music song would not be Beautiful.

I’ve kept my promise–although laughter is a beautiful thing, so maybe I didn’t?

Enjoy this Monday Music — Because Life is Serious Enough.

Monday Music ~ You’re Beautiful (by Phil Wickham)

I’m obsessed with this song by Phil Wickham:

You’re Beautiful

I simply can’t get enough of it. I thought maybe you’d feel the same way, so I wanted to share it with you.

There is something uniquely powerful about music that touches the soul in ways nothing else can.

Phil Wickham’s song You’re Beautiful stops me where ever I am. I can’t just listen to it. I enter into it. Does that make sense? 

It’s like it takes me into the very presence of God, and I’m mesmerized. 

It’s impossible for our finite minds to grasp the pure beauty of God, but this song gives us powerful glimpses that come fabulously close.

And that’s why I’m obsessed with this song.

So now, click the play button, sit back, and enjoy the experience of You’re Beautiful. 

(After you’ve listened to it a hundred times, will you please share it on Pinterest or your favorite Social Media? I have little share buttons that make it easy to share. Spread the obsession!)

and asked for a murderer to be granted to you”
~ Acts 3:14

Barabbas - God still pardons murderers

“No, not Him. Give us Barabbas!” (John 18:40)

The Jewish leaders demanded that Pilate release Barabbas, a convicted thief and murderer, instead of Jesus, the Man who’d fed over 9,000 people and healed the sick and raised the dead.

They wanted Jesus crucified, not the murderer.

Did they think about what they were asking?

They wanted the murderer free, not Jesus.

Did they consider the consequences?  [Read more…]
