I am a mom to three amazing children that require much. Some days are rough. I used to sit in the car and sing “God I look to You, I am overwhelmed” and the Lord told me “If you keep saying it, you will be.” So I changed it to “I won’t be overwhelmed.”
One day before soundcheck, I was messing around with a keyboard, and “I will love you Lord my strength…” came out.
It was really prophetic, cuz it was not how I was feeling at the time.
Come to Me
The word “steadfast” stood out from “Hope’s Anthem”. He is steadfast, and that steadfastness is available to us.
When preparing for the “Loft Sessions”, I laid down on the floor and asked the Lord what He wanted the whole world to know. What could I write that would show the world who He is, His kindness, His love, His strength.
I thought about all the natural disasters that were happening at the time, and I felt like the Lord was saying “I am before you, behind you, beside you”.
I grabbed a pen, and felt the Lord say, “I am The Lord your God.” so I wrote what I heard.
I struggled with actually singing those words, but felt like He wanted me to.
What is your song’s destiny? It is your responsibility as the song writer to find out. Ask the Lord where He wants the song to go.
I won’t really know how to articulate a song, but I knows what I want it to say.
I just want to know His heart and communicate that to the world.
There are songs that the Lord wants the world to know. For example, “How He Loves” is a song that world needed to hear. And it lit on fire.
I wrote the song for the world, but it ended up being very instrumental in my life for getting me through a hard time.
New Song- For the Cross
Ian McIntosh has played for us for years, and we’ve found a fun way to write together.
I like to get help where I’m not the most strong. Ian will sound me a track of some instrumental, like a blank canvas.
I’ll just start singing to them whatever I’m feeling.
My strength is building on something someone else has built.
When thinking about the cross, I look at it from the prospective of a parent. I cannot fathom the emotion of God as He watched His only Son beaten and killed.
I wanted to tell the story of God the Father and what He had to go through.
My heart writing behind it, the story behind it, is the Father’s process through it all.
