3 Scriptures for Tired Moms {The Music Video Version}


Earlier this week I posted  my favorite verses for weary mommas, and today it finally occurred to me why these verses (and not a host of other verses) were so important to me.

I love these because I can sing them! All three verses are also little songs. Working around my house, walking around Walmart, rocking a fussy baby, these are the little chorus that keep a smile on my face when I'm exhausted.

And because I'm just a bit crazy and love you guys a whole lot, I decided that I really needed to share my songs with you. So I took my camera, and shut myself away from the prying eyes of my family and recorded myself singing these three songs a million times. And yes, these videos are the best out of a million. Don't judge.

So here they are, with me, no makeup, a messy bedroom, and Jesus. I did take my hair out of a ponytail, but I'm not sure it did any good. And if I look ridiculously happy it's because after singing these songs a million times I was ridiculously happy. Funny how that works {smile}.

So here we go...

1. First up is "The Joy of the Lord". I have no idea where I heard this song first. It seems like I've always known it, but it made a re-occurrence in my house after I heard Michelle Duggar talk about singing it while folding laundry at 1 am. I figured if it helped a mom of 19 kids, then surely there was some hope for me! The phrase, "The joy of the Lord is my strength" comes from Nehemiah 8:10. The rest of the song is loosely based on other scripture passages.

2. Second is "I Lift my Eyes Unto the Hills". I think this came from a Casting Crowns song, but I'm not sure if it was original to them or not. It's just Psalms 121:1-2 which is one of my favorite passages of scripture.

3 Last, is "He Gives Power to the Weary". This is based on Isaiah 40:29. I made up this song myself. I often set our memory verses to music as a way of remembering them, I usually try to stick to the verses pretty closely, but this time I took some creative liberties on the middle part. It just need an extra oomph!

So there you are. I hope these are an encouragement to you!

And if you are really nice to me, one day I'll post myself performing Deuteronomy 10:17-19 to the tune of the William Tell Overture. You don't get that kind of quality anywhere but here {wink, wink}.

  1. Bravo for your courage!

    You have a wonderful singing voice =) I always joke that it's a good thing God looks at our hearts when we praise Him because if He paid attention to my singing ability I'd be in deep trouble!

    I like the idea of putting verses to song. I guess a lot of children's songs are like this so maybe I'll just use those instead of making my own LOL

    1. I love kids songs! They are usually simple and easy to remember :) Have you ever heard of Seeds Family Worship? They are mostly scripture verses already set fun music Some of our favorite stuff!

  2. My four year old son and me loved your scripture songs! I will make sure to learn these from you :). Thanks for sharing!
