It’s great to be back to present the 117TH week of this 3RD era of my personal hit music chart. The 116TH week was compiled as usual (last week), but not published. There were no new entries, and Austin French and TobyMac switched places at # 5 and # 6 respectively.
This week there are some surprises. Austin French continues his ascent, and now he’s got his 2ND Top 3 smash in a row. Could “Born Again” become his 2ND # 1 smash in a row ? It is my theme song right now.
Elevation Worship has a rare re-entry onto my chart at # 8 – one notch higher than its previous peak at # 9 a couple of months ago. “Resurrecting” has done just that. The song was actually recorded almost 4 years ago, and one of the singers and writers of the song is Mack Brock – who I saw LIVE in concert last week. He was an opening act for Hillsong UNITED. He opened with his current radio hit “Greater Things”. He closed with the refrain from “Do It Again”. That got the entire arena up on their feet – with arms raised – singing out loud to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ !
At # 10 this week I AM THEY (out of Carson City Nevada) replace themselves with their follow-up hit to the late-blooming “My Feet Are On The Rock”. It’s called “Scars”, and that makes 2 hits on my chart this week all about “Scars”.
Finally – a special note about my # 1 smash from exactly 2 years ago this week. My man Crowder. I saw him LIVE in concert last week as well. He opened for MercyMe. He put on an awesome show. He performed about 12 or 13 hits – including “Wildfire” which I absolutely loved. I actually thought it was one of his older songs because the crowd was really into it. As it turns out it’s one of his newer songs from his new album “I Know A Ghost”. Ironically he did not perform “Forgiven” – my # 1 smash on this date in 2017. I was surprised. I was a little disappointed. But he’s “Forgiven”.
My friends – I preached a full sermon on this yesterday at my church. God used music to rescue me and save me from the mud and the mire almost 13 years ago. Music makes me happy. God’s music – God’s believers making music – it obliterates any “Gloom & Despair” (the title of my sermon) that the enemy tries to place forth on me. That’s the message that I share with you here on my blog. I do this to share God’s Good News through His music.
This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again next weekend – 4 new entries on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.
Your likes, follows, and comments are always appreciated. Thank You for being part of my online ministry to share God’s Good News and win souls for Christ through His music. Enjoy this week my friends. I’m on Twitter @ChrisMDay, and I’m also the man behind the tweets for my church @LivingWatersHFL. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him. AMEN.
