an actual giveaway for my blog!

Yes, you heard right............I get to do an actual giveaway from MY blog not just post about someone else's!

Waterbrook Publishing sent me an extra copy of Matthew Paul Turner's book, Hear No Evil. You can read my review here.

All you have to do to enter is answer the following question:

In the book, Matthew writes about a conversation with a woman he was in high school with. They are discussing contemporary christian music and their varying views (both come from a fundamentalist Baptist background, but Matthew has realized that may not be the best way for him to worship while Roberta still affirms that view). Matthew says. "But it's meant to be a love song to God. Or at least about God." to which the woman replies. "Why anybody would want to sing a love song to God, I'll never know."

So, tell me, Why would you (or wouldn't you) want to sing a love song to God?


  1. God has an unfathomable love for us. It extends beyond all human comprehension. We are the focus of His full attention, doted on like we are His only friend. He lavishes us with love as a groom does his bride. As said in Isaiah 62:5 "Then God will rejoice over you as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride." As a singer, I can't help but draw from the depths of those intimate feelings the pure love and admiration I have for Him. So yes, I pray in all I do, God hears my love song to Him. Ephesians 3:17-19 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

  2. I would sing a love song to God to quit complaining/spending my time with him talking about myself. I'm sure he'd like to hear how much I love him. :)

  3. Just as when we were little children singing those silly songs that made our parents smile and have a warm glow the same is true with our Father in Heaven. When we sing praises of worship to Him, it's letting Him know how much we love and adore Him and it is part of the intimacy we have with our Lord. Whether we are on key or not on key He's the one spirit who doesn't care how we sing, just that we sing to Him with love and adoration. I have always said that when I get to heaven I hope the Lord will let me sing, "Holy,holy,holy is the Lord God Almighty," at His throne.
