Music speaks to my soul and moves my heart, my spirit, my mind and my body.
Music has been known to affect my mood, my beliefs and even my habits.
Music is God's gift to me.. and my gift back to Him as well.
I just received Jonathan David Helser's newest CD.. Walk Through The Walls... and I'm worshiping God with every breath I take as a result.
His songs, and the way he worships brings me to a higher level of understanding God, and understanding how God enters the room as a result of worship.
Here's the lyrics to the 1st song on the new CD... it's so fitting for my life right now...(play it below)
It seems like all I can see, are enemies surrounding me
It seems like all I can feel, are lies you're not real
I lift my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from?
My help comes from the one
Who made the earth and heavens
I believe You're more real, than what my eyes can see
I believe these hills are full, of a mighty angel army
God of the Angel Armies, you're mighty to save
God of the Angel Armies, you're worthy of our praise
God of the Angel Armies, you fight for us
God of the Angel Armies, you come down....
when praises go up
Finally I'm starting to see, things are not as they seem
Nothing can come between, your mighty love for me
No ear has heard, No eye has ever seen
What you have planned for those
you set your love upon
I believe you're greater than, I could ever dream
I believe you're coming again, with a mighty angel army.....
And then the rest of the song is just Jonathan's heart singing to the Lord... and I sing right along with him...
Praises go up and You come down
and you walk through the walls
You come down at the sound, of my praise
You come.. You come..
wave after wave
I gotta worship, this is what I was made for... I gotta shout!
This is what I was made to do, is worship you Lord
all those angels, I wanna waste my life with the angels
Pourin' out praise...
I don't care what the world might say,
that you're more real.. than what my eyes.. they can see..
If you're soul is searching for a deeper connection to God than you can find sitting in a pew on Sunday morning... I beg of you to listen to Jonathan's CD's... everyone of them... for it's true that Jesus Walks Through the Walls... at the sound of worship.... and no... I'm not a "sales person" for Jonathan... :) But I don't mind encouraging you to find Jesus!
