What brings you joy?

Someone asked me what lifts my heart this morning.  I took a few seconds to really think about it.  I had done some listening to Christian music on the way in to work, and when I choose to sing along, it usually lifts my spirits considerably.  So my response to my co-worker was, “Well, I guess I find joy in singing some good Christian Music.”  A student walked in then and our conversation ended.

How often do you listen to Christian Music?  Do you need something to lift your spirits at times?  I printed out the lyrics to some of my favorite songs, like “I can only Imagine,” by MercyMe and What Faith Can Do, by Kutless. This way, I can glance at the words and sing at the top of my lungs while I am driving.

Have you sung the lyrics for “What Faith Can Do?  Do try it some time….what an uplifting and beautiful song.
What Faith Can Do, by Kutless – Lyrics

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes and make a new beginning
Anyone can feel the ache
You think it’s more than you can take
But you are stronger, stronger than you know
Don’t you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

It doesn’t matter what you’ve heard
Impossible is not a word
It’s just a reason for someone not to try
Everybody’s scared to death
When they decide to take that step
Out on the water
It’ll be alright
Life is so much more
Than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way
If you keep believing

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

Overcome the odds
You don’t have a chance
(That’s what faith can do)
When the world says you can’t
It’ll tell you that you can!

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do
That’s what faith can do

Even if you fall sometimes
You will have the strength to rise
