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!
This song has ministered to me so much this past year and again recently. May it encourage your soul!
