Last week I was on my way to the bank and the grocery store. Mundane errands awaited me and I was in a pretty grumpy mood. Then I looked into my rear view mirror. Little hands blocked my view of the traffic and I almost snapped at my preschooler to calm down, until I realized what he was doing. He was praising God, through a Toby Mac song. With his hands ever lifted high he was unaware of the busy cars driving passed him or the grumpy remarks from yours truly. He was, in his own preschool way, having a God moment of praise.
My children teach me so much about God and this particular moment was no different. Sometimes the craziness and responsibility of the day cloud my heart from basting in the day He has provided for me. So, on this Music Monday, I’m listening to Christy Nockels NEW album “Into the Glorious.” It debuts tomorrow, April 3rd, in Christian stores and on platforms like iTunes, but I’ve been enjoying it for the last week and it’s encouraged me to start this week with praise on my tongue.
Christy Nockels is a singer-songwriter and worship leader for Passion City Church who lives in Atlanta, GA with her husband, Nathan, and their three children. Christy and Nathan, formerly known as the duo “Watermark,” have toured nationwide for the past 10 years and have led worship for Passion Conferences as well as toured with fellow sixstepsrecords artist and worship leader Chris Tomlin. Christy’s heart through leading and writing is to help people communicate intimately with the living God and to leave a legacy of proclaiming Jesus’ word to this generation.
Back to the picture of my sweet preschooler praising God through a Toby Mac song.
He was rockin’.
He was praisin’.
He was lovin’.
Do you ever feel that way? The first time I heard Christy Nockels newest song “Ever Lifting,” I was rockin’ like my 5-yr-old. Like a child, I forgot the passing cards around me. I forgot the responsibility laid before me and it was just me and Him. The beat and the words really just lifted my spirits. It made me stop what I was doing and praise Him. No matter where I am, no matter what mundane task I’m doing, this particular song reminds me I am exactly where I belong. His plans are perfect for me to be rockin’, praisin’, and lovin’.
Christy Nockels has been speaking to me in such a way that I just feel encouraged. Ever feel that way? Life may be pounding you into the ground, but for some reason you’re just faithful and encouraged? It’s a God thing guys. I want to spread a little encouragement your way today.
