Tune-In Tuesday: God’s Not Dead

Welcome to Tune-In Tuesday! If this is your first time visiting on a Tuesday, I hope you will find this as a place to worship together. Each week, I share about a song that God is using in my life. One that is speaking to me in whatever season I may be going through. The invitation is for you to jump in and do it, too! This year my goal is nothing more than “toward Him.” Basically, my prayer is that we will all begin to seek Him like we never have before… starting this year. So for Tuesdays, pick a song that leads you to Him.

Here are the steps:

  1. Pick a worship song, share it, and write about it… one that points your heart straight to Jesus.
  2. Link up here using the linky tool at the bottom of this post. Use the name of your song as the title of your link. (If you havenโ€™t done this before, feel free to email me with questions.) If you don’t have a blog, you can leave a comment sharing your song. ***Please use the permalink to your post, not your blog’s main site. Because of the specialized nature of this weekly series, any links that are not specifically for Tune-In Tuesday will be deleted.***
  3. Visit other peopleโ€™s blogs and let them know you stopped by.
  4. Spread the word. Grab the button in the left column and add it to your post. That way, others can link up, as well. Tweet about itโ€ฆ Try to get others in on the conversation.
  5. Worship! ๐Ÿ™‚
My song for this week is God’s Not Dead by the Newsboys. Listen below and then keep reading…

It took the Newsboys’ version of this song to catch my attention. It was originally done by David Crowder during Passion 2010 and called “Like A Lion.” You can listen to Crowder’s version here: Like A Lion. This one was probably my least favorite of the Passion Awakening CD… Maybe because there were so many other amazing songs on it or maybe just because it never made me feel the excitement that GOD IS ALIVE as the lyrics of this song talk about. The original just seemed to drag and almost made me feel depressed.

However, flash forward to a few weeks ago. I heard the Newsboys’ version on the radio and sensed excitement. Maybe it’s because their version is a tad faster… maybe it’s the lead voice. Not sure, all I know is that the Newsboys brought it to LIFE! This is a turn the radio up, roll the windows down, and sing really loud kind of song. And that familiar voice? Yep, that’s Michael Tait. I didn’t even realize he had joined the Newsboys until I heard this song.

So, turn it up and sing it out loud that “MY GOD’S NOT DEAD; HE’S SURELY ALIVE! HE’S LIVING ON THE INSIDE… ROARING LIKE A LION!”

And by the way, if you read my Music That Moves Me series from about 6 months ago, this song has now taken over as my favorite running song. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you haven’t read that series, check it out.
