They won’t always be Matthew West songs – I promise! This just happens to be my favorite song right now. I feel such great comfort in the fact that tomorrow is a new day. The mistakes I may have made will be washed clean and I get to start again when the sun rises. Add in a great beat and great hook and it’s a song I always make a point to stop and listen to!
While I was searching for a video for this song, I found a clip of Matthew West sharing the story of this song and thought it would be fun to leave here too!
And here’s the lyric video:
Do you have a suggestion for a future Worship Wednesday song? What do you find speaks to you most in a song?

Even though I’ve lived cross country from my family for 10 years now, I still have trouble getting cards & gifts in the mail on time. There is typically a noble excuse, er reason but it’s shameful all the same.
If you find yourself in a similar boat with no time left for shopping or shipping, here are some great last minute Mother’s Day gift ideas that will make Mom happy and you don’t have to pony up for rush shipping!!
Meal Planning Subscription
Save Mom from the stress of looking at the clock at 5:00 and panicking over what to make for dinner. Gift her a subscription to Plan to Eat so that she can easily plan weekly meals in advance, use the convenient shopping list and get ideas from other Plan to Eat members!
I would love to learn so many crafts but lack the time to seek them out, register and then actually attend them on a regular basis. With craftsy, learning new craft skills is easy and convenient. They have a complete catalog of courses at Mom’s fingertips and she can attend them whenever and however is most convenient for her.
Craftsy is celebrating Moms everywhere with a Make it Great sales event. You can get up to $20 off all online classes from categories such as Jewelry & Paper Crafts, Cake Decorating & Cooking or Photography & Art. The Make it Great event lasts through midnight on May 11th.
Give to Children in Need in Her Name
What mom doesn’t have a soft spot for a child who needs help? Warm her heart with a donation to a charitable organization in her honor. There are many out there to choose from but two of my personal favorites are Compassion International and No Kid Hungry.
Good Ol’ Gift Cards
I hope this list helps you find just the right gift for Mom that will let her know just how special she is…even if you forgot to get her a gift until the day before! :o)

this is the song that introduced me to Christian music. I remember hearing it and thinking it sounded different from what my perception of what Christian music was and from then on my radio dial has been tuned to K-love.
The girls love this and I made sure to find it on iTunes so it’s always on my phone. It’s a great song for impromptu dance parties in the car and to perk up my mornings on our drive into daycare and work.
I couldn’t find an official video for the song on YouTube but I did find this video of her performance on Good Morning America.
Get ready to dance!

Very often in my commute, I’ll be rocking out, listening to K-LOVE and think “I really needed to hear that song”.
Then I started thinking, someone else probably needs to hear them too.
So I’m going to start “Worship Wednesday” and share a worship song that I’m really feeling.
With the unrest in Baltimore and natural disaster in Nepal, I think many feel helpless. That we are living in a world that is too far gone.
But then I think of Ellen Turner, a local woman who spent the last days of her life serving others. Because that’s what God wants us to do.
We can all do something.
Do you have a worship song you’re really feeling right now?? Share it in the comments!!
