So today I am having the fun task of getting all the envelopes ready to send out with the CDs that have been pre-ordered. If you want to order a copy, you can shop here and I will send it out first thing on Friday. The heart of this album is to bless and encourage and to point towards our awesome God!
I am so excited about the launch on Friday, and if you are local would be great to see you at TazZa Coffee Shop at 7.30pm. It will a very evening of music, chat, coffee and, of course, an opportunity to buy the album on release day.
Over the last few weeks I have been talking about the songs and the stories behind each song. The last song on the album is called ‘Journey on’. One of the biggest things I love doing is encouraging people to keep going and to know Jesus’ love and leading in their lives. In this song I look at the reality that in this life we will have both times of great happiness and joy, and times of sorrow and pain. Yet in this life we are on a journey and the heart of the song is to keep going, keep journeying on till the day when God calls us home to be with him. There have been times in my life where everything seems great, and joyful and I am so happy and full of life. And there have been other times when it takes a huge effort just to get through the day and I feel like I am clinging on by the fingertips. I believe that God is with us through the highs and lows of life and I wanted to end the album with this encouragement, knowing that life is a journey with different seasons – but in the full knowledge that ultimately, we will be with him forever. This definitely gives me strength to keep going!
So in my last blog I talked about not knowing where God was leading but stepping out in faith. I can already say God is starting to open doors which is really exciting – just to be cryptic, I will say more about this soon! I am excited about what God has in store and I pray that you would know God’s peace, joy and strength in your life no matter what season you are walking through.
