fear not

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Behold, all who are incensed against you shall be put to shame and confounded; those who strive against you shall be as nothing and shall perish. You shall seek those who contend with you, but you shall not find them; those who war against you shall be as nothing at all. For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.” … I am the one who helps you, declares the Lord; your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel. 

(Isaiah 41:10 – 14)

rapture ruckus: all things new

This weekend, I was introduced to the band Rapture  Ruckus. They’re from New Zealand and they’re kinda awesome. : ) Here’s two of their amazing songs from their new album, Open Your Eyes. The first one, All Things New, has  a really upbeat verse but I love the chorus. And the second one, “Hold On,” is really good too. Enjoy! : )
