This morning the only thing that got me going was my music – which made me think about how useful music is to inspire and to energize.  So I thought I’d share a few of my favourites with you.

 

Energy Favourite: Imposter by Kevin Max

This song is simply great for energizing – I pretty much have to dance when I hear this one.  Good for vacuuming and other physical tasks.  🙂

 

Prioritizing Favourite: Legacy by Nichole Nordeman

Whenever I hear this song it gets me thinking about what I really want to accomplish with my life.  It’s a great message to inspire me to make my day count.

 

Cheering Up Favourite: Wait for the Sun by PFR

This one’s great when I’m feeling down – It reminds me that things will get better.  And by the end of the song I can’t help singing along.

 

Inspiring Favourite: Little is Much by Downhere

Whenever I feel like I don’t have much to share with the world, this song reminds me that it doesn’t matter how small – everything I do can make a difference

 

Uplifting Favourite: Beautiful Things by Gungor

This song reminds me that God can make beautiful things out of the dust – so he can do amazing things with me, too.

 

Encouraging Favourite: Oceans by Hillsong United

This is my very favourite song right now.  It inspires me to move out of my comfort zone into where I can make a difference for Christ.

 

Feel free to listen – hope you enjoy!  What songs motivate you?

Here’s a post I did for a new friend/writing buddy/fellow blogger & tweeter from Ireland.  Are you doing what you were made for?

Music can be a powerful tool to motivate and influence our moods.

I use music to give me energy when I need to do housework, to calm me down when I’m agitated, and to focus my mind on God when I’m praising.

Here are a few of my go-to classical pieces to jumpstart your week:

A gorgeous bittersweet piano concerto from Beethoven … (if you’ve seen Immortal Beloved this has additional heart-string tugging power)
Elgar’s stirring tribute to a noble friend: Nimrod from the Enigma Variations
And if you’re working on a sad scene, Albinoni’s Adagio.  Dark, but beautiful.
Hope you are as inspired as I am.  Feel free to share your favourites too!
