Soul Crescendo

Soul Crescendo

by Carolyn Majoran

Soul Crescendo was birthed out of my love for God as well as music that lifts up His name. While my musical taste may be somewhat eclectic, I pray you will find the blogs shared here to be an encouragement to you. Let the simple truths of God’s greatness and the music that brings Him glory be a balm to your soul. To Him be the glory always.

  • When listening to the lyrics of a song, there’s typically one line that’ll grip me as unique. It rarely happens in the opening line of a song though. With Rend Collective’s song Finally Free, that is exactly what happened. I was completely caught up by the picture drawn by the words, “Your mercy rains from heaven like confetti at a wedding”.

    Volume 31: Finally Home - Jeremy Camp

    August 1, 2016
    Ah, the summer song. A song that brings pure joy and causes you to turn up the volume to unreasonable decibel levels every time you hear it. Finally Home by Jeremy Camp is just that for me. I love the celebratory nature of this song. It makes me long for the day when heaven is a reality.
  • Humanity struggles with boundaries. We want to be able to do what we want, when we want and how we want. We live by the mantra, “Do what makes you happy!” We fall into the lie that happiness in this life is the purpose for our existence. So, we do what we want, when we want and how we want without regard for eternal consequences.

    Volume 29: Pieces - Amanda Cook

    July 18, 2016
    Too many of us have an improper view of God. We fear a judgemental tyrant up in the sky waiting to send lightning bolts upon us when He catches us sinning. We wonder when the day will come that we finally have sinned beyond forgiveness and He will simply give up on us and remove His love from our lives. We project these incorrect ideas of what God’s love must be like since our only comparison is a depraved humanity. And, you know what? God’s love isn’t human – it’s supernatural! As much as we can understand love here on earth, it cannot compare to the love of God.

    Volume 28: Love Song - Third Day

    July 10, 2016
    Third Day’s song, Love Song, is by no means a current song. It was actually released shortly before Ray and I met at Bible College. The words mean just as much to me today as they did 20 years ago when I first heard them. This love song is not intended to be from human to human but from God to us humans. From the understanding I have of love through what Ray has shown me, I can only get a glimpse of what love my Saviour has for me. When I envision Jesus singing me a love song, it brings me to tears.
  • Growing up in a conservative church, I understood the fear of the Lord to be just that – fear. I wanted to be as good as I could be so that God wouldn’t turn His back on me and decide I wasn’t worthy to enter into my heavenly home when the time came. Being a perfectionist and an overachiever, I thrived on such a lofty goal.

    Volume 26: My Victory - Crowder

    June 27, 2016
    Is there anyone else out there like me that upon receiving a new album, skims through it to see what songs grab you? When we downloaded the newest Passion album, this is exactly what I did. This song, My Victory by Crowder, is the second song on the album. To my detriment, this was one of the songs that I skipped over many times. I’m glad I finally gave it a chance because the lyrics are so amazing and powerful.
  • The video I chose to share for this song is one that gives me goosebumps every time I watch it. The song on its own is amazing but when each person sings praise to God in their mother tongues, there is nothing better! What a picture of heaven this is for me! I look forward to the day when we are all called Home and people from every corner of the earth are gathered at the feet of our Saviour praising His holy name.
  • Have you ever asked God to make you aware of sin in your life and then you were completely unprepared for Him actually answering you? Like, God blatantly points out where you’re being idolatrous in your life and He won’t let it go until you make a change? That is exactly what happened to me right around Christmas 2012.
  • Weakness is defined as “an inadequate or defective quality, as in a person’s character” (second listed definition on I don’t believe anyone truly enjoys being looked upon as someone who is weak. We’re encouraged from a young age to engage in being independent. As toddlers, we would rather tantrum than ask for help. Asking for help seems to be a sure sign of weakness.
