Hillsong-Let Hope Rise in Theaters September 16 {An It's Fall Y'all Giveaway Hop}

The days are getting shorter and the temperatures are starting to cool off, which can only mean one thing... It's Fall Y'all! Let's celebrate this popular season with a giveaway hop, hosted by Lindsey Blogs and Viva Veltoro. That's right, a great group of bloggers have come together to offer you giveaways, so be sure to hop around to them all in the linky below.

Do you have a song that is kind of like your theme song? A song whose words speak to you, or you feel like could have been written just for you? A song you aspire to live by?

For me, that song is Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) by Hillsong United.

From the first time I heard this song, I was in love. And if you've heard the song, it's not hard to understand why. It's absolutely beautiful. Just take a look at these lyrics:

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You've never failed and You won't start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

I will call upon Your Name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine

I have to admit, I'm a little bit of a control freak. Perhaps because of my anxiety, but I like to know just how things are going to work out before they do. When things are unknown...well, I really struggle. Of course, I know that I need to put my full trust in God through every circumstance, but actually doing that is hard! When I hear the words to this song, I am reminded again that even in the unknown God is there with me, and I need to trust in Him completely. Though it's not always easy, I strive to live by those words..."Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders...."

This may be my favorite song by Hillsong (and favorite song in general), but it's certainly not alone when it comes to amazingly powerful lyrics. Every song that I have heard from Hillsong is the same. They speak truth in such a way that is beautiful and unique... they make you want to listen over and over again. They truly are one of my personal favorite groups and it's easy to see why they are perhaps the biggest hit in worship music.

Needless to say, I am beyond excited for Friday's theatrical release of the new movie Hillsong- Let Hope Rise:

Capturing the on-stage energy and off-stage hearts of the Australia-based band Hillsong UNITED, HILLSONG - LET HOPE RISE is a new motion-picture genre: the theatrical worship experience. The film explores Hillsong's humble beginnings and astonishing rise to prominence as an international church whose songs are sung every Sunday by more than 50 million people worldwide.

I am so looking forward to getting a look behind the scenes at my favorite music group and getting to experience their music in a whole new way! It's going to be amazing!

Hillsong- Let Hope Rise will hit theaters September 16, 2016!

And one very lucky reader is going to get to experience the movie and music for themselves with a chance to win two electronic movie vouchers and the Hillsong-Let Hope Rise Soundtrack. Enter using the Rafflecopter form below:
