Hey music lovers!
This week I thought I would talk a bit more about where my inspiration and passion for music comes from. These are the top 5 artists whose work inspire me the most and furnace that passion for music everyday.
1. Kari Jobe
I love her music because for me it always reveals to me the relationship and desire she has with the Father but also how she allows God to use the situations she has been through to worship and praise him in a way she could never have done by her own works or attempts. I also love how in her music she shows the wrestling she has with God and how out of that he gives her songs that are written form the heart in the midst of her heartaches and the times of trial.
This reminds me of 2 Peter 1:7 which says…
“Trials happen so that the authenticity of your faith–more precious than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire–may result in praise, glory, and honour at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
My most favourite album of hers is her new one ‘The Garden’, for me it shows a real hearts cry to God and it’s purpose is to bring her listeners to worship and adoration of God.
Here’s the link to the Story behind The Garden so please check it out (It made me tear up when I watched it).
2. Lauren Daigle
I love Lauren Daigle’s music because you can tell from the words of your songs that she has had a personal and true relationship with God and she knows him as Father. I find her songs very inspiring and encouraging but most of all I find it uplifts my spirit and gives me joy and praise.
This is what she had to say about her album…
“There’s a continuing theme on this record—trust,” says Daigle. “My heart’s cry is that people feel empowered as a body of Christ. It’s just heavy on my heart for all of us to rise up in unity and recognize the goodness of God. My hope is that people are empowered by knowing who they belong to, knowing that they are the son or daughter of God, and in response to that being able to worship fully, worship with complete abandon.”
3. Shane and Shane
I love Shane and Shane’s music because they get most of their inspiration for songwriting from the Psalms. I love that all their songs are scripturally backed up and in all their songs you see a people who are on fire for God.
4. Francesca Battistelli
I love Francesca Battistelli music because I find she uses her music to talk about how God is with us in the day to day problems of life. Her songs aren’t very deep but I still love them because they are good to listen to when you just want to sing loudly and praise the Lord.
A good example of this is her song called ‘When the crazy kicks in’ and ‘We are the kingdom’. One of my favourite song from her is called ‘Beautiful, Beautiful‘
5. Need To Breathe
I’m loving this band at the moment so much, I am finding their music good to listen to when working out or studying. I also love that even though they’re a rap and pop band their lyrics still have so much meaning and depth.
My favourite song of theirs at the moment is Testify.
So that’s 5 of my favourite artist’s. I hope you enjoyed what I had to say about them. Don’t forget to leave a comment below telling me what your favourite artist is?
