• Matthew West's New Song "Broken Things" Takes Him to A Place of Worship

    Thursday, September 14, 2017

    Usually confident in his ability to remain composed during song performances, Matthew admits that he reacts differently when singing "Broken Things" a new song from his album All In (September 22, 2017):

    "I kind of had a hard time even getting through the writing and recording process without, kind of, being brought to tears," Matthew reflects, "there's something about these lyrics ... that brought me to a real place of worship, every time. Even when I hear it now, the chorus says:

    “I'm just a beggar in the presence of a King
    I wish I could bring so much more
    But if it's true that You use broken things
    Then here I am Lord, I'm all Yours.”

     

    Openly honest about his own personal struggles over the years, Matthew says he's in awe over how God still uses him a 'broken thing'...

    “There's a whole lot of times in my life where I feel disqualified. As if I've messed up too many times and, if grace is a kingdom, I'm just gonna hang outside the gates. But, time and time again, day after day, morning after morning, God invites me inside those gates and says, 'Come on. I'm going to use you in a powerful way.' Our God's in the business of using broken people and broken things.”

    Mandisa "Bleed The Same" Song Story

    Tuesday, August 29, 2017

    In this Behind The Music Mandisa shares the events that inspired her new song "Bleed The Same."

    "We all bleed the same 
    We're more beautiful when we come together 
    We all bleed the same 
    So tell me why, tell me why we're divided 
    If we're gonna fight, let's fight for each other 
    If we're gonna shout, let love be the cry 
    We all bleed the same 
    So tell me why, tell me why we're divided..."

    "...Tell me who are we 
    To judge someone by the kind of clothes they're wearin' 
    Or the color of their skin 
    Are you black, are you white 
    Aren't we all the same inside 
    Father, open our eyes to see..."

    "Only love can drive out all the darkness 
    What are we fightin' for 
    We were made to carry one another 
    We were made for more"  ~ Lyrics from "Bleed The Same"

    "Speak to my weary heart
    Strengthen my broken parts
    Lead me to Your open arms
    Word of truth
    Illuminate all these lies
    The enemy speaks inside
    In freedom I will rise"

    "Jesus literally offers peace, He offers hope, He offers joy. He offers the words of eternal life ... I want to encourage you guys, man, stick to the only true source of life. And, that's Jesus Christ because He gives us all that we need." - Jeremy Camp
