Crossroads Music seeks the heart of God in their new single, Anything To Bless Your Heart.
Produced by Dwayne Larring and written by Austin Livingood, Chris Smith, Erica Bostick and Robbie Reider, Anything To Bless Your Heart was penned with a posture of surrender to bless the heart of God.
“The song was written with this intent of being available for God’s intentions from the moment we wake up until we close our eyes again,” Livingood shares. “We want to chase after the things God thinks are worth pursuing. We want to be actively available at all times, through all things.”
Based on scriptures like Psalms 103, where David speaks to his soul to Bless the Lord, Anything to Bless Your Heart is an offering of surrender to the plans and purpose of God.
“Psalm 103 says, ‘Bless the Lord, O my soul’. That’s a way of saying I want everything in me, every part of me to bless the Lord. It’s not saying I get it right every day or hit that nail every day. It’s saying I want everything I am to be a blessing to the Lord,” says Justin Mosteller. “One morning, I wrote down everything in front of me that day — every place I needed to be at every time. Then, at the very bottom of the page, I wrote, ‘What are you doing today, God? How can I bless Your heart?’ It reframed my entire day. I’m not a slave to, ‘What am I doing today? And how can I get through it?’ I can live freely for something greater to simply bless the Lord with all of me.”
And for Crossroads Music, that offering is more than a song, it’s a lifestyle that reflects the heart of their church community.
“At our church, there’s a saying that our senior pastor, Brian Tome has shared with us — it’s a saying he says right away upon waking: ‘God, whatever you have going on today I wanna be a part of it’,” Livingood shares. “To start your day off with such a simple and humble statement impacts the posture of the rest of your day because you’ve made an active decision to hand over the reins of your life.”
