It’s been a while since I posted a Friday Favorite about music, but lately I just can’t get enough of the new Casting Crowns album called Until the Whole World Hears. The title track is addicting, but really all of the songs are amazing.

Maybe my favorite song on the album is an old hymn written by Avis M. Christiansen in 1920–Blessed Redeemer. Check it out here.

Funny story about this album. Everyone in my family knows my sister loves Casting Crowns. For her birthday last year, I sent her and her husband to their concert in Phoenix. So I thought I’d be all thoughtful and get her this album for Christmas. Turns out her husband figured he’d do the same thing. My mom did too. So Hannah ended up with three copies of the cd on Christmas morning. Oh, well! There are certainly worse things to get. :)

Anyway, as previously mentioned, I recommend the entire album, which is on sale on itunes right now for $7.99. Be encouraged. Be uplifted. Be brought to your knees before the grace of God.

Awesome! Mom got one of the Hannah gifts and has it going non-stop in her car. I, on the other hand, am completely committed to the encouragement of Switchfoot’s Hello Hurricane. The track entitled Mess of Me really speaks to me. “There ain’t no drug to make me well.” I want to be alive, but I am my own worst enemy. This really speaks to me how only the Holy Spirit can make me alive.

Hey Daddio – I know what you mean. I’m totally rocking out to Switchfoot in my car right now. :) I love song number 6 – Free. I love how it talks about inside of us there’s a prison cell, but “I still believe you can save me from me.” Boy howdy, I need that. And it’s totally cool how faithful God is to do just that. :)
