Creation Speaks – Original Christian song by Sarah Begaj

I finished this song during the Coronavirus lockdown with footage from Havant Thicket, England and some footage from Peje, Kosovo. It seems quite poignant at a time where the world has slowed down and become a lot quieter. Creation seems to have made its’ voice heard. Psalm 19 says “The heavens declare the glory of Read More

Before the throne of God above (Cover)

The words to this song are so powerful and the newer chorus fits so well. How I rejoice knowing that I have a great High Priest who intercedes for me. My name is graven on His hands… Yesterday I shared a little excerpt from Psalm 139. Today as I thought about David’s words I realised Read More

O Lord, You have searched me and known me

“O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold, O Lord, You know it Read More

I see the Lord (cover)

Another golden oldie resurfacing in my brain this week from the well known passage in Isaiah 6. I often wonder that today’s Christianity has lost some reverence and fear of a holy God. Too often I’m prone to making God into an image I’ve created by taking the verses of the Bible that seem more Read More

Hidden Treasures

A year ago we visited my husband’s homeland and the place I spent 6 years as a missionary:- Kosovo. It’s easy to forget the hidden treasures of a place when you haven’t been there for a while. The mountains and waterfalls of Peje are as breathtaking as they look here. Being in the beauty of Read More

All I once held dear (Knowing You)

This Graham Kendrick song has been on repeat in my mind the last week or so. It was one of our wedding hymns/choruses 15 years ago and pretty much sums up my goals in life… It makes me think of Philippians 3:1-11: “But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Read More

Birthday musings

A little family snap whilst out today… Also celebrating our daughter Kaitlin’s 7th birthday. It was the year Kaitlin was born that a steady stream of songs began to flow after years of silence. I had no idea at the time what the purpose of my songs would be… I now have a backlog of Read More

One Day (Matt Redman cover)

Continuing with the beattitudes theme I’ve been exploring with my children (which I meant to post yesterday) : No:2 “Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted “. -Matthew 5:4 This song by Matt Redman exemplifies the hope that we have-that this world is not our home. One day, for those who have Read More

Give Thanks

I find myself singing so many of the old choruses lately..probably showing my age but to me they are timeless! I’ve been memorising the beatitudes with my children over the last week and it’s really impacted me so I thought I’d share my gleanings. So much of what the world tells us is the way Read More

Creation Speaks

I was so excited today to discover new woodlands and poplar trees just a walk away from our house! With my violin, cameraman (aka my husband) and helpers (children) in tow we found a lovely spot to record for a new song of mine called ‘Creation Speaks’. The pace of life has slowed for many Read More

It is well

When peace like a river Today someone we have been praying for passed away, leaving a wife and a teenage son. I don’t know the family personally but I pray the peace of God be upon them and that His salvation be made known. Matthew 5:4 says “Blessed are those who mourn for they shall Read More

Fellowship of suffering

Lying here with an ice pack strapped to the back of my leg is not how I envisaged spending the weekend! During the lockdown I haven’t really felt like there was a huge detrimental effect on my day to day life (obviously not seeing family and friends is sad)…Rather for me an injury is debilitating Read More
