Slow Song: One Thing Remains by Jesus Culture

By December 4, 2017 Worship songs

One Thing Remains by Jesus Culture

This is definitly an older song and is still a very popular song in many churches. This song is a great reminder that no matter what, His love will never fail us. In a world full of disappointment and hurt, one thing remains… and that is His love.


Here are the lyrics:

Verse 1

Higher than the mountains that I face
Stronger than the power of the grave
Constant through the trial and the change
One thing remains,
Yes, one thing remains

Chorus

Your love never fails,
It never gives up
It never runs out on me

Verse 2

Because on and on, and on, and on it goes
Before it overwhelms and satisfies my soul
And I never ever have to be afraid
One thing remains
So, this one thing remains

Bridge

In death, in life I’m confident and covered by the power of Your great love
My debt is paid.
There’s nothing that can separate my heart from Your great love

The verses of this song because of how much they magnify His love. In the pain, hurt, and trials we go through, His love remains. His love is stronger than the grave! That is a great reminder that He loved us enough to send His only son to die a horrible death that you and I deserved. BUT He didn’t stay dead… HE ROSE AGAIN!

The ‘Like Jesus’ challenge: Week 3 (Memorizing Scripture)

By August 21, 2017 Like Jesus Challenge
week 3-memorizing-scripture-bible verses

Hey there again!

Glad to see you reading this for week 3 of the like Jesus challenge. How did last week go for you, smiling at everyone? I hope it went very well. I’d love to hear about it! Today, I will be sharing with you what you will be doing all of this week (week 3). Are you ready?

Week 3: Memorize one bible verse and find a way to use and apply it each day this week.

It’s one thing to know the scripture but it’s a game changer when you are acting them out and actually doing what they say. Take some time today to find what scripture you want to learn this week and start memorizing. Learn it so well that when you hear the reference, you can quote it without any hesitation. If you have never learned scripture before or aren’t really sure how to, click here to read my post about memorizing scripture.

It is important for us to be learning scripture as Christians. We don’t always have a bible with us. It can be very beneficial to have some key verses in your mind and heart. Go back to the bible verse you choose as often as you can this week. Look at it or say it multiple times a day. Say it to a close friend; say it in a prayer.

Why?

Learning scripture can be super encouraging for you and others around you. If you are trying to take action in the Bible verses rather than just reading or memorizing them, you are going to make a huge impact in your life and in many others around you.

If you want to follow Christ and be (humble, kind, forgiving, etc) like Him, then memorize scripture. I promise, if you do rather than just read it and forget about it, your heart will begin to change. Your attitude will move out of the way to make even more room for God in your life. But if the extent of this is just memorizing or reading a scripture, you are not going to get what you are wanting out of this challenge.

Apply it.

Matthew 18:21-22 says, “Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times.” If you were to memorize this verse, it does you no good unless you apply it to your life. You shouldn’t be memorizing this bible verse but holding a grudge on Susan from a year ago when she stole your $1.50 that you were going to buy a Spongebob ice cream with.

I know when your brothers and sisters sin against you, it may be a bit worse than stealing $1.50 from you but regardless of the situation, the Bible says it plain as day. Forgive. Even when you don’t want to. Even when you’ve given them more chances than you think appropriate.

The point of me saying all of this is, don’t learn the scripture and then not apply it to your life. Learn it and then let it change you because it will, if you let it. So for this whole week, take out some time to learn one or two scriptures really well and try your hardest to apply it to your life each day this week. It may be hard at first but I promise, you will get the hang of it!

Don’t forget!

Do the other weeks challenges as well. Continue praying for others. Continue smiling at people. Use these challenges to form healthy habits that will brighten your day and your walk with God. Let these challenges allow God to change your heart and attitude. Make sure you read your bible every day this week as well! You have to be in the word if you want an attitude adjusment. Good luck this week!

Ultimate Christian Workout Playlist

Ultimate Christian Workout Playlist

I’ve recently started working out again. I know, shocker. Hopefully I will not end up quitting like every time I try this. We all do it. I know I’m not the only one. So in honor of me getting back into the workout saddle (is that a thing?), I’ve decided to put together a Christian workout playlist. When I work out, I love to listen to ‘get pumped’ music. Most of the time when I am running, slow worship songs comes on and although they are great songs, it just doesn’t fit the whole ‘get pumped’ mood.

Slow Song: You Won’t Relent by Jesus Culture

you won't relent lyrics

You Won’t Relent

I love this song. The first time I heard it, I fell in love with it. The words are just so astounding. There are 4 different parts to the song and they are all amazing.
This is one of my favorites to do with the youth because it is such an emotional song. I could do this song every single Wednesday because it’s that good but most Wednesday’s we don’t have a drummer. My boyfriend says that this song needs drums or else it won’t have the dynamics it needs to sound phenomenal. This song has a lot of quiet and an equal amount of loud parts to it. There are a lot of builds and a lot of drops. So if you’re going to do this song, drums are recommended.
