New Music Wednesdays: “Keep Your Head Up” by Ben Howard

When I was on a retreat a couple weeks ago, one of the other youth ministers in the area introduced me to Ben Howard. I’d heard a little of his stuff in the past, but it wasn’t until I came across this album my obsession began. Ben Howard is a folk-inspired singer/songwriter whose music enlivens and leaves the listener feeling joyful! I particularly like this song because it reminds me to not get hung up on the little things that don’t go according to my plans–but instead to experience life to the full as Christ desires for us (Jn. 10:10)!
