Growing up, I often found peace in listening to simple melodies and instrumentation. It was the music that inspired me to find calm moments in my day and glory in God’s beautiful songs. The last few years of college have been an often rocky roller coaster- putting me face to face with some of my worst fears and sweetest memories.
As I’ve found myself coming back to music, a Christian group by the name of Casting Crowns has played not only tranquil melodies that I end up humming daily, but sung lyrics that remind me of God’s powerful message. One of my favorite songs of theirs, Thrive, released in 2013, was originally created by this group of artists with the help of their student ministry.
This, among many things, has reminded me of the value in friendship and building our lives together through our campus ministry at KU. I pray that you find peace and empowerment through their songs and that every step you take in faith will bring you closer to God’s will for you, through every up and down.
“Joy unspeakable, faith unsinkable,
Love unstoppable, anything is possible.”
