So I’m pretty sure this song has made an appearance in the past – maybe even twice by now. But I cannot stress how much these words have comforted me on days where my insecurities truly want to eat me alive. The words to this song have become a solid reminder as to all the beautiful things God says about me. It’s none other than ‘You Say’ by Lauren Daigle.

I’ve also included another song which has always been one of my favourites by an artist I’ve been following since them X-Factor days. Although Genius might state otherwise, I truly believe this song is coming from a place of deep pain and the acknowledgement that no one but God will suffice in the rescue mission for one’s soul. I watched a brief YouTube video with him describing that it is spiritual in its tone and there’s no denying that the words to this song apply quite directly to who God is for me personally and who He can be for you as well (if you’re just getting to know Him or have an interest in doing so!) So my second #SoundOfJericho is, ‘Sermon’ by James Arthur. A beautiful fight song with stunning lyrics. I hope you are blessed as you listen to both.

I’ve also just felt the Holy Spirit tell me to make a playlist of fight songs in relation to seeking validation from the right source i.e. Jesus Christ and so I guess these 2 songs (plus some others which have just come to me as I type) will mark the beginning of a growing playlist for that specific purpose:



Peace & Love,

My thoughts are best expressed by writing.
So that's what I do - I write.

It's how I make sense of it all.
My prayer is that someone somewhere is blessed or is able to relate to what I write.

"Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them..." ~ Romans 12:6
