Day #1: A Favorite Song(s)

Before I begin the 30 day blog challenge, I need to ask a question.  Why are these challenges so broad?  What!  You are asking me to pick a favorite song.  We will be here for a couple days as I shuffle through my i-pod, cds, and what not in trying to choose my one favorite song.  It is pure reality in the life of Joshua.  Now, to be honest with you all, I do not have a specific song that I am necessarily crazy about.  Instead, I am the type of person, who enjoys singing, playing, replaying, and dancing to many songs, but I am strictly a Christian artist type of guy.  So, without further ado, I will list my top three, not one, favorite songs with a video of each.  Enjoy.........

    

This is one of those Christmas songs that I enjoy listening too.  You cannot get any better than Alvin and the Chipmunks.  :)  No, this song is not a part of my top three list, but it deserves recognition as one of those great songs in the history of cartoon America.  ;)  ALVIN..........

Now, starting at #3 - By Your Side


 

This song, By Your Side, is written by Tenth Avenue North.  And, the lyrics speak for itself.  :)

#2 - How Great is Our God



 No words to say for this song, but Chris Tomlin did an amazing job writing and composing this song.  


#1 - The Power of the Cross




This song is sung by Kristyn Getty, but played by her husband Keith Getty.  Keith and Kristyn Getty along with Stuart Townend composed and wrote this marvelous song.  It brings me to a sense of awe and worship for who God is every single time I hear it.  He died for me.  Thank you Lord!!!


Sola Deo Gloria!!!!!

haha! Okay, so I had to laugh at your first choice of song. (But that really is one of my favorite Christmas songs).

And I really love those 3. Have you heard "Yahweh" by Hillsong? I think you would like that one.
It has the same...feeling I guess as How Great Is Our God (especially when you're in a room of lovers of God! Oh I love it!)

Happy new year!

Hmm... I'm not so sure you can post THREE favorite songs. I'll have to consult with the 30 Day Blog Challenge judges about that. =] Good choices!

Tenth Avenue North!!!!!!! They have blessed my heart so so so so many countless times. I got to meet them when they came to Denver and it was just so refreshing to see they don't just sing songs, but they live it!

Amber,
No, I have never heard of "Yahweh" by Hillsong before. I like Hillsong. I just have never checked that song out before. I should definitely do that one of these days. Thanks for the suggestion and Happy New Year to you as well. :)

May,
Actually, I was thinking of posting 5 favorite songs, but the 30 Day Blog Challenge judges would have fired me. So, instead, I chose 3. They initially accepted my plea, but I had to go to court. Luckily, I was never fired or found guilty enough to be sent to prison. ;)

Jess,
Did you meet them in person? I am curious, because I saw them in concert as well before they initially became "famous" per se. But, I agree with you. I saw the same exact thing within them. They live the songs they play and it is astounding to see how God has influenced their lives to be solely used for His glory. I completely am enamored by their music. Great group of guys! :)

Hayley,
Each and every time I listen to that song, I am so amazed at what Christ has done for me. That is most definitely one of the best songs ever written about the cross of Christ. I so love it as well. Thanks for the comment and for following my blog. I hope you are greatly blessed. :)

Eh, I never cared for the Chipmunks. :) But you picked some good songs.

Lilac Bud Gal said...

Well, glad I am not the only one who couldn't pick just ONE song.. *sigh* it is hard when there are so many good ones out there!! Not to mention that I am not that good at picking "favorites" per se, I just like all of them. :)
The ones you posted are some of my "favorites" too. I really love it when the lyrics to the songs are so true to life. They just help me through the day!


In Christ's Service,
Sarah

Eldarwen,
You never cared for the chipmunks. :0 How mean! The chipmunks are the most beloved cartoon characters in American history. :( I am kidding. ;) Each person has their own opinions on different topics, and this appears to be one of them. Glad you like the songs though. :)

Sarah,
I also like that too. When the lyrics are great, it makes the song all the better. Thanks for the comment.

Anna,
I could not agree with you more on Alvin and the Chipmunks and Tenth Avenue North. I will definitely check out the Stellar Kart song. Sounds like a magnificent song. :)
