The Music Tag!

Standard
The Music Tag!

Hi! I was really excited when Kassie tagged me for this music tag. Because I love music! Thanks Kassie!! 😀 😊🙃
Rules:
  1. Write ten songs that come on shuffle (no skipping).
  2. Write your favorite lyric from each song.
  1. Tag some people.

 

  1. As Long as You are Glorified// Coffey Ministries

I love this song! God is still God during the good times, and the bad. ❤ 

“You are good when I’m poor and needy
You are true when I’m parched and dry
You still reign in the deepest valley
You’re still God in the darkest night”

2. You are Always Good// Majesty Music

“Looking up, I can see Your sympathy;
I doubt myself, but I’m sure of Your love.
Lavish grace was poured out at Calvary,
Securing me for our home above.”

3. Instead// Southern Raised

Jesus took our sin upon Himself and paid our penalty. What a Savior!

“His love became the ransom
For a dept I could not pay
My sin demanded justice;
Jesus made a way
Oh, I’m so grateful for the blood He shed
 Instead”

4. He Is// Kevin Inafuku

“The loving hand that formed me and fills my heart with song,
The voice that stirs inside me when all hope is gone
The Morning Star that guides me,
The Light that goes before me,
The One’s who’s praise is on my lips, He is!”

5. He Who Began A Good Work In You// Steve Green

He is finishing the work He started in us, making us more and more like Christ.
“If the struggle you’re facing
Is slowly replacing your hope
With despair
Or the process is long
And you’re losing your song
In the night
You can be sure that the Lord
Has His hand on you
Safe and secure
He will never abandon you”

6. Whate’er My God Ordains is Right// Grace Community Church

Even when we don’t understand it, everything that comes to pass is in His good and perfect plan. ❤ 
“Whate’er my God ordains is right:
though now this cup, in drinking,
may bitter seem to my faint heart,
I take it, all unshrinking.
My God is true; each morn anew
sweet comfort yet shall fill my heart,
and pain and sorrow shall depart.”

7. Saved by the Blood// The Gospel Plowboys

“Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
Now ransomed from sin and a new work begun,
Sing praise to the Father and praise to the Son,
Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!”

8. Out of Ashes// Steve Green 

I really like this one! 
“Out of ashes into freedom
Out of dying into life
See the joy that’s set before us
In the blinding cross of Christ.”

9. King of Love/  Coffey Ministries

“And so through all the length of days
Thy goodness faileth never
Good Shepherd, may I sing Your praise
Within Your house forever.”

10. Blessings// Laura Story

This song has been an encouragement to me through hard times and trials in my life. ❤ 
“What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy.”
That was fun – thanks for tagging me, Kassie! 😀 😄
Ok, whom should I tag…? 😉 🙃

And anyone else who wants to do this tag!! 😀 😉

I hope everyone is having a great day! 🙂

My first A Cappella!

Standard

I’ve been wanting to make an a cappella video for quite a while, but have never gotten around to it. Until Saturday! 😀 Last Saturday I finally decided I was going to make an a cappella video that day. Fist though, I had to figure out what song to sing… I flipped through the hymnal for a while and finally came across the song Freely, Freely, and decided that it would sound pretty good in a cappella. No matter that I didn’t hardly even know the sing… I mean, I’d heard it, and even sung it before, but by no means did I have the words memorized! xD

So, I spent Saturday morning learning the words, and had it pretty much learned by that afternoon. (It’s not a hard song to learn.) I went over to our guest house so that I (probably!) wouldn’t have kids talking to me or asking me questions every few minutes, lol! XD

After maybe… an hour and a half maybe, I had all the recordings recorded. 😀 After that, I came back into the house, and put them all together on the computer. It turned out a lot better than I expected! 😀 Like, I was actually really (pleasantly) surprised!

Oh, and sorry for the horrible lighting… It was dork outside, and all there was in the building was a little bare lightbulb. I was able to up the brightness a bit, but still… XD


Freely, Freely

God forgave my sin in Jesus’ name.
I’ve been born again in Jesus’ name
And in Jesus’ name I come to you
To share his love as he told me to.
He said ‘Freely, freely you have received;, freely, freely give.
Go in my name, and because you believe others will know that I live.
All pow’r is giv’n in Jesus’ name
in earth and heav’n in Jesus name
And in Jesus’ name I come to you
To share his pow’r as he told me to.
He said ‘Freely, freely you have received;, freely, freely give.
Go in my name, and because you believe others will know that I live.

In Christ,

Rosy 

P.S. Oh, and a piece of good news… It’s finally starting to feel like Spring here!!!!! 😀

 

Do you know this song? Should I try to do more a cappella videos? Is it starting to feel like spring at your house? 

Random Survey Results!

Standard
Random Survey Results!

Sooo…. the Random Survey I made a few days ago was a blast! 😀 I really enjoyed seeing all your answers come in. My favorite part was seeing all your assumptions about me! That was great!

Now, I am going to post the results to the survey, and I’m also going to go through all the assumptions about me, and tell y’all which are true, and which are false! 🙂 😉

They’re have been 35 responses so far, and of course these results are only including those 35, not anyone else’s who do it later. Speaking of, if you haven’t done the survey yet, click here to do so. I would totally love to see your answers!! 😀

What about you?

Do you like coffee? Do you have any animals? Are you homeschooled? Do you consider yourself adventurous? Are you a born again Christian? 😀 

 

It is Well with my Soul!

Standard

The song, It is Well, was written by Horatio Spafford, and is one of my (many!) favorite hymns. It has such encouraging words, and whenever I hear it, I remember that Jesus really died for me, and it is truly well with my soul! ❤

Please excuse my many mistakes, as this video was randomly made on the spur of the moment. XD 😀


When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

(Refrain:) It is well (it is well),
with my soul (with my soul),
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.
(Refrain)

My sin, oh the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to His cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
(Refrain)

For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pain shall be mine, for in death as in life
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.
(Refrain)

And Lord haste the day, when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.
(Refrain)


 

In Christ,

Rosy Joy

How’s your day been so far? Which verse is your favorite? Have you ever played this song on the piano? 

 

 

You are my All in All

Standard
You are my All in All

Jesus should be our everything. He should be, without exception, our all in all. Our hearts should be bursting with praise and gratitude to Him!

He should be our King of kings, Lord of lords and God of gods! The question is, do we have anything in our life that is taking that away from us? Anything that is coming between us and our relationship with the Lord? If there is, we want to do all we can to rid ourselves of whatever that is. Then Jesus can truly be our all in all!

 

~Rosy Joy

P.S. Stay tuned for a committee story soon! As soon as I think of a good starter… 😉
