New Music!

I LOVE it when Provident Label Group shares new stuff! Thanks Brian and congrats on the new baby!!

Earlier this week, I received a copy of Matt Maher's new CD "Empty and Beautiful". The day it came, Chad and the girls had Karate, so I waited until they left and popped it in. Wow! I listened to it from beginning to end while I cooked dinner.

Let me tell you that I LOVE this CD. While the music is "fun" to sing along with, these lyrics are powerful. God has gifted Matt with the ability to bring a lyric and melody together in a way that draws you into worship. As I listened, these words took me straight to the throne room and broke down some walls around my heart. I found myself in a place that I love. A place where it's God and me. The place where He never fails to speak...and on that day..I was desperate to hear Him.

I can't say that one song is my favorite because as soon as the next track plays, it becomes my favorite...however......the title cut "Empty and Beautiful" and "As It Is in Heaven" have really ministered to me this week.

Can I tell you something else? I LOVE that this CD rocks out one song and is reflective the next. I also LOVE that I can hear some piano rocking out!!! LOVE to hear that....not that I'm partial to the piano or anything.....:)

Please, Please, Please...GO BUY THIS CD!!!! You can click on the Matt Maher Album cover on my sidebar and order it there. It's as easy as that and I are in for a blessing.

I just saw this guy on Fox News this weekend. I think he had been singing for the Pope! Can't wait to hear this CD. Thanks, Stephanie.
