Here is what I love about this soundtrack: diversity. I love that nearly every other song is by a country singer. I love that NEEDTOBREATHE did a duet with Lauren Daigle. I love Dierks Bentley. It’s Friday y’all. Let’s do this!
Devo #5: “Days of Dark”
This song is grooving. Dierks is great at songs that groove and this is classic Dierks style right here! He also does a great job at summing up the darkest of times. Continue reading
Can you feel it? Where my teachers at? Can you feel it? One more day! Friday is within reach y’all! You’re gonna make it. Reach for it. Fall into the arms of Jesus and let Him get you there with grace! And let this song help you get that last…little…hard…spell…
Devo #4: “Hard Love”
So…this song. It’s NEEDTOBREATHE and Janis Joplin. I’m sorry…I meant Lauren Daigle. Folks, I’m a little in love with Daigle because her Instagram channel keeps me entertained. I love her laid back music, even the slow songs, and that is a big thing coming from me. But Imma need her to rock out more! She seriously has some Joplin vibes going on in this song and Christian music needs more Joplin. (No…not cowbell.) Anyway, I just need to say that to Daigle if she’s listening. Let’s move on.

Good morning children of God! Are you good? Let me tell you something: I love coffee and I have discovered a new favorite this week! If you live in North Carolina and you’re not familiar with Counter Culture Coffee out of Durham…you need to get acquainted with one another! Mmm! And if you’re not from North Carolina, hit their website up and get some goodness in your home! My favorite is the Tairora. Now, to be honest, it’s the only one I’ve tried. But hot dang! Mmm!
Hey…I have an idea. Let’s get off coffee and get on Jesus shall we? We’re still talking about “The Shack” soundtrack this week. And today, we’re looking at track five from the one and only Francesca Battistelli. Continue reading
Day two for “The Shack”! I hope you enjoyed yesterday. Yesterday was a song by Lady Antebellum today’s track is from Hillsong. I love the broad range on this album! Well…we should probably just get into it!
Devo #2: “Heaven Knows
Okay look…you can listen to this song 500 times and that’ll be great. But I don’t think this song will fully sink into your heart until you read the lyrics. This song is so beautiful. It has other connotations for the movie…but this is a perfect anthem of worship. These lyrics reach out to God for the things we never have the courage to ask Him for. But these are the words of a young child’s heart in an adult who isn’t sure how to protect that heart in this world of pain, fear, loss, malice, and contrition. Continue reading
