Enchanted: how Kings kaleidoscope tapped into the modern Christian issue.

Enchanted: how Kings kaleidoscope tapped into the modern Christian issue.

It’s been a while since i wrote something on one of my favourite bands. A band that i can honestly say, has changed my perspective on what Christian music can be. And if you didn’t guess by the title, that band is Kings kaleidoscope.

I’ve written a few pieces on their music, in fact, the most viewed post on this blog was my opinion on their controversial song, “A prayer” a song that was well-known for their use of explicit language, and a song that i still see as a turning point for worship. Because it’s one of the most honest songs of actually struggling through anxiety, and in the man’s own words “That song is about the fear of running from God or that God will turn his back on me and I will end up apart from him in hell”  If mentioning that fear and ending it with Jesus answering this most visceral of prayers isn’t a turning point in worship i don’t know what is! However it’s not this song we’re going to be talking about today, instead we’ll be talking about another important song from this amazing album, and why even a year on, it’s still just as important as “a prayer” for a completely different reason.

Music will be my prayer.

Music will be my prayer.

Music, along with writing, is my way to worship. There’s very things in this life that i love more than music. As one of my favorite bands once sang “Music the great communicator” (i’m very happy if you what song that’s from!)  and i really think this has more truth than we give it credit for.

If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you’d know about my love for music, the post that’s gotten the most attention on this blog is my piece on why i think that the song “a prayer” by kings kaleidoscope is a turning point in worship music, i’ve written about songs that have touched me in a way that not many things can, songs like “in Christ alone” “Before the throne” and so many more. But why is that? Why does music have such a profound effect on us as followers of Christ? Well i think i might have an answer. Continue reading “Music will be my prayer.”

In Christ Alone.

In Christ Alone.

This has been a truly blessed week. Not only has the Lord put in the foundations for his plans for my future and my life, but he has allowed me to reflect on where i was a year ago and helped me see how the bad is used for his good. God is good my friends, all the time! But today’s blog isn’t about me, but about the three words that make all things possible, the three words that we as Christians should live by. Those words are “In Christ Alone” Continue reading “In Christ Alone.”

Everyday worship: “what if i do?” by the foo fighters.

Everyday worship: “what if i do?” by the foo fighters.

Well this is an idea I’ve been sitting on for a while! I mentioned this a few weeks ago in( Days will come and go no matter what i say(your will be done) ) and i recommend you give that post a read before you go any further with this one as it will give you an idea of what I’m aiming for with this post!

Welcome to this new series of blogs I’m going to call for the time being (Till I can think of a better name or someone suggests one!)  “Everyday worship” The idea of this series is to go into detail with non christian songs in order to find ways to apply them to a Christian lifestyle while sharing some of my favorite songs in the process! I’m going to be starting with a relatively easy song for the first post, and that song is “What if i do? By the foo fighters. Continue reading “Everyday worship: “what if i do?” by the foo fighters.”
