The pull // why i like it

Shine is another throwback worship song that I’ve loved for years. When I was younger, I’d hear the song on the radio over and over again, yet I never grew tired of it. It’s incredibly uplifting and has powerful, positive lyrics.

The message // what it means

There’s great fulfillment and joy that comes with serving God. As follows of Christ, we must follow His command to be a light for Him and share the gospel. Shine celebrates the “beauty” and “majesty” of our loving Savior and how much He deserves glory.

“Lord, let me shine, shine like the moon

A reflection of You in all that I do

Lord, let me be, a light for Your truth

Light of the world, I wanna be used to shine for You”

The call // best to listen

Whenever. There’s something about this song that makes you want to sing along and worship. It’s definitely a mood-booster, but most importantly, it’s such a wonderful song of praise.

  • Contemporary Christian Artist
  • From New Zealand

The pull // why i like it

An oldie but goodie, Faithful is one of the first Brooke Fraser songs that I discovered years ago. The song has a lovely melody, and it’s accompanied by her famously beautiful vocals.

The message // what it means

God hears you, and He has not forgotten you.

When we feel distant from Him, He’s still there. In quiet seasons, we should learn to seek Him and remain faithful, even though we can’t see the future.

“When I can’t feel you, I have learned to reach out just the same

When I can’t hear you, I know you still hear every word I pray

And I want you more than I want to live another day

And as I wait for you maybe I’m made more faithful”

The call // best to listen if

You’re a Brooke Fraser fan (though you’ve probably already heard this one). If you’re not a fan, this song might make you one.
