A New Year to Rise!

One of the highlights of 2009 was the chance to get to know Charlie Hall. I wrote about it after my time with him back in April 2009.

I’m reminded of the beautiful lyrics he penned called ‘New Year’. It’s a song of recognizing the pain of our past, yet, pointing towards the hope and light that is found only in Jesus for our future. It’s a powerful song of redemption and restoration! It’s a song that deals with failure and hope. Dark and light. It’s a song that roots itself in the power of what God can do in our lives. This is a New Year…so RISE, SHINE and point the way to GOD’s great light. It is my prayer over my life and over yours for 2010! May we point the way for MANY this year to the great light and life that is found in Christ.

I’d love for you to leave a link to your ‘Year in Review’ here on my blog. I wanna read what happened in your life in 2009 and what you’re hopeful towards in 2010. Drop a link!

New Year by Charlie Hall

Verse 1

My heart beats like a drum, flying up with the sun as I grab your hand again!

Renovated with life, my eyes again bright. You are radiant!

Pre-Chorus

Where hope can hold my hand in sorrow and we can walk in tomorrow

Where peace is found in troubled days and the joy of Jesus carries pain

Chorus

This is a new year. This is a new day to rise, shine and lift up your eyes.

This is a new year. This is a new day to rise, shine and point the way to Gods great life.

Verse 2

I’m held in this place, this beautiful space where heaven meets the earth.

My heart opens wide and the Father pours life deep inside my soul.

Switchfoot: Two (of many) Reasons I Like These Guys

Also…this video for some reason had me laughing pretty hard. Apparently they stopped off in Memphis at a Coffee Shop and found this here NordicTrac. HA! The phrase that abides is…’Don’t HASSLE the DASSLE’. Just say that out loud without trying to laugh at the way it sounds. Anyways, These guys are top shelf musicians, anthropologists and people!

Michael Jackson – The Death of A Legend

t1home.michael.jackson.06.gi

I’m a pretty big Michael Jackson fan. The reports today of his cardiac arrest and his death are heartbreaking. He’s an entertainer like no other and has a songwriting ability that only a few have and a voice like no one in history. I know some people that have worked with him and they say he was an unbelievable musician and quite a guy.

Whether you think he’s weird or great, he was an epic talent and that’s undeniable. Truly this historic day is a sad one for those of us that appreciate great artistry!

Are you a fan? What is it about M.J. that you really dig? Seriously, how big of a bummer would it be to have lost the King of Pop today?
