I guess I’m in this “retro” mood in music. Third song in a row from the 90’s. This time it’s DC Talk’s Jesus Freak from their 1995 album of the same title. What’s not to like about some serious 90’s Christian rock that talks about grace, rejecting the powers of this world, John the Baptist, and being totally unashamed of being Christian. (more…)

New music post. Another “classic” that I love – this time from Newsboys. The song is Spirit Thing, off the Going Public album from 1994.

Spirit Thing – Newsboys

It’s not a family trait
It’s nothing that I ate
And it didn’t come from skating with holy rollers
It’s an early warning sign
It keeps my life in line
But it’s so hard to define
Never mind

[Chorus]
It’s just a spirit thing
It’s just a holy nudge
It’s like a circuit judge in the brain
It’s just a spirit thing
It’s here to guard my heart
It’s just a little hard to explain

It pushes when I quit
It smells a counterfeit
Sometimes it works a bit like a teleprompter
When it’s teleprompting you
I pray you’ll let it through
And I’ll help you with the how
But for now

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
I took the pulpit
Then backed down again
Some things in heaven cannot be explained

I took the soapbox
Then backed down again
Some things in heaven cannot be explained

I took the airwaves
Then backed down again
Some things in heaven cannot be explained

[Chorus]

I’ve decided to start a new series of blog posts that should be simple and fun. These will be selections of songs that are on my mp3 player for running. Like most people, I need a little distraction/inspiration when running, especially when the runs are rather long, and this is some of what gets me through those. As you’ll figure out, virtually all of these are Christian music – but not “your parent’s” Christian music. I hope you enjoy them and get a little taste of some other aspects of my personality…

The first song I’ll share is some old school Audio Adrenaline – from way back in 1993! A favorite of most Audio A fans, it’s just plain fun and a great reminder that it’s God’s house, it’s fun, and we need to be inviting others… (more…)
