NEEDTOBREATHE | 20 Monroe Live


Last night y'all. LAST. NIGHT.

We went to see NEEDTOBREATHE last night at 20 Monroe Live. They are one of my favorite bands so I have been looking forward to this for months. I can't really explain the feeling of their shows. It's everything from a dance party to the most sincere moment of worship. Their lyrical creations and musicianship is in-sane. If you haven't listened to these dudes yet please, please go grab an album. 

The show last night in particular was the best concert I have ever been to in my life. We were lucky enough to be in the front row (the chilly wait was worth it). NEEDTOBREATHE songs have been a formational companion during the best and darkest of times; to really see their faces while they shared their art was powerful. 

Your love is like radiant diamonds
Bursting inside us we cannot contain
Your love will surely come find us
Like blazing wild fires singing Your name

God of mercy sweet love of mine
I have surrendered to Your design
May this offering stretch across the skies
And these Halleluiahs be multiplied

To share a night like this with my husband and dear friends Kristin & Matt (who also l.o.v.e. them) was meaningful. I was face to face with this while they sang their song Brother. The soul that runs throughout the song is that no one should face this world alone. It's a reminder that when it comes to the people in your life you serve as a shelter for them, you show love them, well. 

Face down in the desert now
There's a cage locked around my heart
I found a way to drop the key where my failures were, now my hands can't reach that far
I ain't made for a rivalry and I could never take the world alone
I know that in my weakness I am stronger, but it's your love that brings me home

Brother let me be your shelter
Never leave you all alone
I can be the one to call when you're low
Brother let me be your fortress when the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home

Friends, I hope your weekend has also been full of hope and heart. Love y'all.
