Jenn Johnson’s explanation of the song…
Have you ever cried out to Jesus in seasons of pain and seasons of joy? Have you ever gone through times when only the love of Christ got you through it? I sure have!
While reflecting on such times and seasons, I penned the song, ‘You Were There’. I hope it reminds you that you are not alone.
“I will never leave you nor abandon you…” – Jesus, Hebrews 13:5
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
ps- This is the first time I intertwined percussion on the guitar while playing.
While hiding out in my bathroom for some serious privacy, I decided to take advantage of the acoustics by playing a song my dear friend, Zoe Whitesall of York, PA, wrote called ‘Faithful Father’. Check it out and let me know what you think!
On May 17th, 2017, Carrie scribed this song about our Heavenly Father called ‘Oh, Father of Mine’.
When you realize the Father sings over you and loved you first, it becomes easy to sing back to Him. My only response can be love.
It’s been awhile since I’ve been afforded the opportunity to play around on my guitar. Last night, I finally got to do so… Enjoy!
If I had to pick just one song to capture this season of my life here at the beach, it would be “In Over My Head” by Bethel Music. Since relocating to Myrtle Beach, temporarily alone, I find myself tumbling in the undertow of a Spirit-led life, which is ironic considering I actually did get caught up in a wave’s undertow as a child right here at Myrtle Beach. Now living here, the Spirit of Christ has His grip on me as He rips me from the safe shores of religion. Surely, His goodness and mercy frees me. Upon surrendering to His doing, or shall I say undoing, I then find myself floating in Christ’s abundantly fluid love while He teaches me to trust and rest in His love and the current He is taking me in. The freedom and depth in and of His love are as deep and wide as the sea that surrounds me. Truly, I am in over my head.
I invite you to watch this lyric video produced by Bethel Music. Perhaps this is the song I should be learning to play in this season by the sea…
This song has ministered to me so much this past year and again recently. May it encourage your soul!
