Message Mondays, Throwback Tuesdays and Worship Wednesdays – Not To Us, But To Your Name Be the Glory

How many of you like fame and adulation? Everyone? No one? Did anyone put up their hand just then? Or howabout I ask this question? Does everyone like to be told ‘well done’? Are we searching and searching, looking through the status, the fame, and friendship with others just to find out that what we’re really searching for us someone or even something to love and accept us the way that we are, and believe that the way that we are, as screwed up and messy as it can be, isn’t the way that we are going to stay? I know that question sounds like a mouthful, but just think about it for a moment. Are we living our lives in the moment, or thinking about the future? Are we focussing on our own needs (which includes the fame and adulation mind you) or are we focussing on others and what they would like to see happen in their lives? The title of the blog really hits home to me- not to us but to Your name be the glory. Have I really been living that out? If worship is a lifestyle as we have established previously, then are we really truly living as though we are not here to glorify ourselves in every aspect of our lives, but to glorify the One who gave us life and holds our thoughts, dreams, hopes, fears, despairs and everything else in His hands?

WOW HITS 2016: WHAT’S YOUR PREDICTION (PART 2)?

wow-hits-party-mix   wow hits 2015

In a short 3 and a half months, the annual WOW Hits project will be released both in physical and digital form, and while we all can agree that no collection of the top 39 Christian songs of the year will fully encompass every song worthy of recognition, we can all try, sit back and make our own fantasy lists, of songs we reckon should be included in the compilation, and other tracks that we deem to miss out, for whatever reason. Earlier in the year, we released a prediction to you all, and a few months down the track, we’ve decided to disclose another predicted list- some tracks the same and others different. While I must admit there’s probably no perfect list, WOW Hits does have some traction within the CCM community, and is a great way to start if you are looking for something new, different and interesting to listen to if you are a fan like me of all things CCM.

Joshua Andre’s Best Of 2014 (Part 1: Albums)

MercyMe welcome to the new

It’s been about nearly two weeks into 2015, how is this year treating each of you?

So now that you’ve read Jon’s best of 2014 list of albums releasing in 2014, let’s dive into see what my choices are. I’ll admit, some of them are the same (we are brothers after all, and love similar kinds of music), but bear with me, cause some choices are different. Though it’s been a bit longer than I originally wanted to post about best albums, let me reveal this long awaited list without further ado. As I list my choices, hopefully you will hear why these albums are special. Hopefully you can be inspired and encouraged by them again and again as well!

klove air 1

Another week, another Top 10 blog post. Since we have started this top 10 series, we have talked about many topics, from worship artists, movie trilogies and franchises, activities to undertake in Australia and high sugar foods, to superheroes, things to do at the beach, and original and traditional Christmas carols, as well as top 10 music videos of the year. Now this topic, though it may seem a little critical, is equally as valid- what are the top 10 most overplayed songs on Christian radio throughout the last 15 years?
