Songs speak, don’t they?

Music has the ability to evoke such strong emotion.

For example, have you ever heard a song and been transported straight back to a certain moment in your history? You can probably remember every sense that you experienced, and those sensory memories probably bring up emotions from that time too.

Songs are powerful. The lyrics can speak directly to our hearts, bypassing our brains and getting straight to the core. 

Music and lyrics can encourage us when we are walking through the various seasons of life, whether we are in the mountain top seasons of Spring and Summer or the more valley-like seasons of Autumn and Winter, there is hope to hold on to and it can be found in song.  

Some of the most encouraging lyrics I have heard come from Desert Song by Hillsong. They go like this: 

All of my life 
In every season 
You are still God 
I have a reason to sing 
I have a reason to worship 

 

They remind me that, no matter what, God is still God and God is still good. Infact the Bible tells us in Psalm 23:6 that His goodness and His mercy chase us down all the days of our lives!  

So, here are some beautiful lyrics to encourage you in each season. My prayer is that they remind you that, no matter what you are going through, there is a reason to lift up your voice: 

Spring 

You are our living revelation
You found my lock and turned Your key
Opened every dream in me
You are eternal salvation
Remove the veil, unleash Your light
You gave new heart to this life
No one can steal away
This light inside of me
The voices singing the name of Jesus 

Eternal Salvation by C3 (Christian City Church Oxford Falls) 

Summer  

You have been
And You will be
You have seen
And You will see 

You know when I rise and when I fall
When I come or go, You see it all
You hung the stars and You move the sea
And still You know me 

You Know Me by Bethel Music  

Autumn  

Let faith arise
In spite of what I see
Lord, I believe,
But help my unbelief
I choose to trust You
No matter what I feel
Let faith arise… 

Let faith arise
For my Champion’s not dead
He is alive
Oh, and He already knows
My every need
Surely He will come and rescue me 

God of Miracles by Chris McLarney 

Winter  

Peace be still
Say the word and I will
Set my feet upon the sea
Till I’m dancing in the deep
Peace be still
You are here so it is well
Even when my eyes can’t see
I will trust the voice that speaks 

Peace Be Still by The Belonging Co.
