Lauren Daigle – Look Up Child

Just had my first run thru with Lauren Daigle’s new album; Look Up Child. Absolutely…inspiring. It has the hit, You Say but the song that is on repeat now for me is Rescue. Lyrics such as this just put me at peace…

I will send out an army to find You

In the middle of the darkest night

It’s true, I will rescue you

I will never stop marching to reach you

In the middle of the hardest fight

It’s true, I will rescue you

I have a feeling that this album will be on repeat for the foreseeable future.

You can find Look Up Child on Apple here.

Have a great day everyone. May you see the love of God today. PJSLB

David Dunn – Macon, Ga 2018

The WE ARE MESSENGERS tour gave everyone who attended a sense of the Holy Spirit. Held at Northway Church, the setting was so intimate that you had genuine moments between the artist and the audience. Before the headline act of We Are Messengers, JJ WEEKS and David Dunn came out and did their thing!

Out of all the artist in this night, my family was most excited for David Dunn and he did not disappoint. My daughters (especially my youngest) loved the two man set up and using the “computer” as she calls it to make the music. Seems like David loved hearing this.

The song everyone (including my kids) was waiting for was the last song played ; I Wanna Go Back. The lyrics of the song are beautiful. We all had a time in our journey with Christ when our relationship was simplistic and personal. As time goes on, we lost that intimacy.

I wish I took more pictures but to be honest, I was on my feet the whole time just soaking in the moment.

You can listen to I Wanna Go Back here. In case you missed it, you can also read about We Are Messengers and the moment that made everyone quiet.

WE ARE MESSENGERS concert – Macon, GA (04/19/18)

I was blessed tonight. I came to this concert wanting to hear a few of my favorite songs and ended up leaving with a revival. We Are Messengers aren’t just a band that makes good music; they are a band that oozes the Holy Spirit. From going into the crowd and praying with people to making eye contact with every single audience member, I am at awe at what God did on this night. Darren Mulligan rivals any pastor out there. I would travel miles and miles to hear him preach again.

You can find a link to their latest album here.

You can find the song above entitled My Victoryhere.

The night was also blessed by THE JJ WEEKS BAND and DAVID DUNN. I’ll have some highlights of their performance in the upcoming days as each performer did an amazing job and deserves the spotlight.

In the meanwhile, be blessed and walk with purpose for you are made perfectly by God.

Natalie Grant – King of the World

I love words.  I love how words can bring out emotions that just would not come up from a visual perspective.  Words allow you to use your emotions and imaginations.  From the days of my parents reading to me a bedtime story, to the days of reading my favorite author – Sidney Sheldon, words always captivated me.  Naturally, the words of the Bible is the biggest inspiration to me.  Just before the holiday season, I came across the voice of Natalie Grant while listening to K-Love.  King of the World is one of those songs that just connects you to God. The instruments in the background is soft and reflective…but its the lyrics and content of the song that got to me.

I tried to fit you in the walls inside my mind
I try to keep you safely in between the lines
I try to put you in the box that I’ve designed
I try to pull you down so we are eye to eye

When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the king of the world
How could I make you so small
When you’re the one who holds it all
When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world

Just a whisper of your voice can tame the seas
So who am I to try to take the lead
Still I run ahead and think I’m strong enough
When you’re the one who made me from the dust

When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the king of the world
How could I make you so small
When you’re the one who holds it all
When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world

Oh, you set it all in motion
Every single moment
You brought it all to me
And you’re holding on to me

When did I forget that you’ve always been the king of the world?
I try to take life back right out of the hands of the king of the world
How could I make you so small
When you’re the one who holds it all
When did I forget you’ve always been the king of the world
You will always be the king of the world

Just reading those lyrics give me chills.  In life, we try to make moves in our life to better our current situation and sometimes that leads us into thinking we know better than God; i am not innocent in that as well.  I think i know better and i try to “make moves” when in reality my “moves” are just making my blessings take a little longer.  King of the World  is a reminder that God is indeed the Alpha and Omega and in no way can i do ANYTHING without him

I could not find an official version of the original song but this acoustic version will give you just as much chills.

If you have Apple music, you can find the album simply by searching Natalie Grant – BE ONE.  For iTunes users can go here. Finally, if you use Spotify you can find it here.

Dont forget to follow Natalie Grant on Twitter.

Thank you Natalie for such a beautiful song that connects us to God and reminds us of his power and glory. – PJSLB

***Natalie Grant is also an author.  I will definitely have to pick up this book.***
