How To Play Thrive by Casting Crowns


Thrive by Casting Crowns l LadyDpiano


 My husband loves the song "Thrive" by Casting Crowns. Another favorite that my readers enjoy, Praise You In This Storm seems to be so comforting and hopeful when one is going through rough times. One of my favorites is Who Am I by Casting Crowns. 

Here's the video to Thrive if you're not familiar with the song.

Chris Tomlin: Jesus Loves Me l LadyDpiano

I absolutely love this song! It's amazing that a song can be so simple in melody and words... and yet so powerful to the listener's heart, mind, and soul. Now, I'm not talking about the hymn that so many of us sang as a child (that's a beautiful one, too) but the song that was written around 2014. It's another popular tune so easy to play. I hope you enjoy!

Cause You whispered them all to their place
To testify of Your wonder and grace
Both now and forever
