Welcome To LifeSongs!

I love all the music we play here at LifeSongs. Its one of the many reasons I enjoy working here. But every once in a while there seems to be one song that sticks out to me more than the others. Many times, it has to do with the actually music — the rhythm, harmonies or the fact that it is fun to sing along with. But usually, what grabs me even more (when I slow down to actually intently listen) is the lyrics.

This is the case with For King and Country’s “Fix My Eyes”. Have you heard it on LifeSongs yet? I sure hope so. Not only does it have an awesome drum beat, but the lyrics are just incredible. Here is the chorus:

Love like I’m not scared
Give when it’s not fair
Live life for another
Take time for a brother
Fight for the weak ones
Speak out for freedom
Find faith in the battle
Stand tall but above it all
Fix my eyes on You

There is always an easy way out. For us as believers in Christ, the easy way is to go along with what the world says is right. It is to live for ourselves, and not worry about anybody else. It is to give into temptation, instead of fighting hard against it. This song is a challenge for me to do what is hard — even when I don’t want to. And sometimes, the hard thing is knowing what to do. But that is why I love the final line of the chorus: “Fix my eyes on You”. That is the resounding finish to everything that preceded it. Above all, fix my eyes on Jesus. If I do that, I’ll know what is right and I’ll know which choice to make.

1 Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith.

Hebrews 12:1-2a
