k....love!

my little brother turned me onto the christian radio station back in january, and though i do occasionally switch to other stations..... the majority of what i listen to in the car is none other than klove.

my car is a clunker, a deadbeat, on its last leg, ready to die --- for so many reasons. my gold "gloria" {because it's so glorious when it actually works properly} doesn't have a cd player and the tape player has not worked in ..... what? maybe a decade {thanks to my sweet little brother who had his moments of not-so-sweetness}.


as i drive around in gloria, i listen to klove.

klove.
the radio station that often plays the same songs over and over again....

for the most part i don't mind since i actually get to learn the lyrics by heart.
{if you know me, you know i like to sing along!}

listening to music having everything to do with Christ and love, forgiveness and peace -- everyday, all day, getting stuck in your head.... it's not a terrible thing.

i've found some of my favorite songs from the playlists of klove -- including all the songs i posted in "come as you are."


this radio station helps me feel of God's love, His charity, and reminds me of His blessings.
right when i need a pick-me-up or a reminder that God knows me personally and what i'm going through, a song that speaks straight to my circumstances will play and i will smile through my tears as i sing along to the words about how life is hard but God loves and blesses me anyway.

i hear inspirational stories about the beautiful, huge hearts people have -- full of the love of Christ, ready to lift and help other people in their trials.



so here is a new song i heard on klove.
it's a song that reminds me how much i've been given.
it also motivates me to live life to the fullest and make every day count.




"good to be alive"
hold on
is this really the life i am living
‘cause i don't feel like i deserve it
every day that i wake and every breath that i take you've given
right here, right now
while the sun is shining down

(chorus)
i wanna live like there's no tomorrow
love like i'm on borrowed time
it's good to be alive

hold on
if the life that we've been given
is made beautiful in the living
and the joy that we get brings joy to the heart of the giver
then right here, right now
this is the song i'm singing out

(chorus)
i wanna live like there's no tomorrow
love like i'm on borrowed time
it's good to be alive
i wanna live like there's no tomorrow
love like i'm on borrowed time
it's good to be alive

(bridge)
i won't take it for granted
i won't waste another second
all i want is to give you
a life well lived to say, "thank you”

(chorus)
i wanna live like there's no tomorrow
love like i'm on borrowed time
it's good to be alive
i wanna live like there's no tomorrow
love like i'm on borrowed time
it's good to be alive

(bridge)
i won't take it for granted
i won't waste another second
all i want is to give you
a life well lived to say, "thank you”
