Behind the Songs: Daniel Bashta’s “Like a Lion”

Daniel Bashta’s powerful “Like a Lion” has been performed by artists like David Crowder*Band and Chris Tomlin. The song’s lyrics, emotion, and melody continue to move mainstream artists, as well as worship leaders in church service.

    How cool is this? If this was a crime scene God would have to be arrested. His fingerprints are all over it :-)…

  7. Amazing story! I encourage you to take 3 minutes and listen to it.

  8. Must tell you something! had a vision this morning while I was waiting for my grandson to get ready for school; at one point I wasn't sure it was real, so I dropped to my knees and prayed for discernment and a sign from God and I opened my email and here was this video. Now keep in mind that this is the first time I have received a video from faithlife, I have its app on my phone but have never gotten an email. In this vision there is a little girl in trouble and I will help her if I'm allowed. Please pray with me for her that God shows her to me and gives me the opportunity to help her! This is not a joke, I'm asking that whomever reads this to "touch and agree".

    Very neat story. Love the pro-life angle to it. But I still don't understand the lyrics. What does this mean?

    Let love explode and bring the dead to life
    A love so bold to see a revolution somehow

  10. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s
    the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.
