"On the streets of gold, we'll never grow old with the lover of our souls."
"If there be anything anxious in me God, rip it out, weed it out so I can be refined, purified and fully alive."
This set absolutely resonated with my soul and where I've been. Such beautiful songs and music from Olivia, Wynter, and Taylor. I wanted to wait to post these videos on facebook until after I had put this blog together, but for one of the songs I just couldn't wait because I just felt like so many people would benefit from hearing it. So, I posted one video early, and I got a message in my inbox from a dear friend saying the song was "so pure" and "almost healing to watch". Now that's what I'm talking about! Yes, Jesus.
I believe this song was written with Jonah 2 in mind? Just a guess ;)
“In my distress I called to the LORD,
and he answered me.
From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help,
and you listened to my cry.
You hurled me into the depths,
into the very heart of the seas,
and the currents swirled about me;
all your waves and breakers
swept over me.
I said, ‘I have been banished
from your sight;
yet I will look again
toward your holy temple.’
The engulfing waters threatened me,
the deep surrounded me;
seaweed was wrapped around my head.
To the roots of the mountains I sank down;
the earth beneath barred me in forever.
But you, LORD my God,
brought my life up from the pit."
And lovely Lacy Bruner,
I couldn't help but smile the whole time through her whole set :)
"No more nothing-songs for me."
[Note to self] - Something I learned from this was that using the 50mm f/1.2 lens is super hard to keep focused for an event like this and in the future I probably won't use it even though it's small size is so convenient!
