Hands to the Heavens

Recently Trip stumbled upon an incredible band.

~ Rend Collective ~

Being that he is the "chief music officer" of our home, he shared the songs with me and the boys. And now, at any given moment you will find dancing and hands to the heavens in shouts of joy and praise. Even Mr. Henry has a few hand motions to his favorite songs. And Lord help the poor person who witnesses the hallelujah crazy in our car as we drive around town.

Each song has lyrics that just leave me in awe - and the music that corresponds fills me with incredible joy. Regardless of how the day may be going, one of their many songs from any of their albums will allow the Holy Spirit to sing loudly and quiet the noise of this world.

Their philosophy...

"We made a recent theological breakthrough as a band 
and it has changed everything about our approach: 
seriousness is not a fruit of the spirit …
but joy is."

~ Create In Me ~

...Create in me a clean, clean heart
Create in me a work of art
Create in me a miracle
Something real and something beautiful
You’re not finished with me yet
You’re not finished with me yet
By your power I can change, I can change
‘Cos you’re not finished with me yet...

~ You Bled ~

...You bled your heart out
Now I feel love beat in my chest
How wonderful
You gave your beauty
In exchange for my ugliness
How wonderful

You left your perfection
And embraced our rejection

How marvelous, how boundless
Is Your love, is Your love
How wonderful, sacrificial
Is Your love for me...
