Seek you First- Shane Bernard (rocks wont cry) I listened to this song every morning in the sanctuary, after working out in the CLC. It later went on to be in our wedding and be a defining song for my entire life. May our Praise Rise as Incense O Lord to YOU!
Knowing You- Passion 99- this song represents all that I learned and long to become. So many dear friends and mentors pored Truth into my life and for this i am forever indebted. From Matt Kearns to Harvey Kinisel to William Taylor to Bob Caldwell to Mary and Roger Bridgwater to Beth Moore, my life was shaped and molded by the these sweet people. Their lives showed me that in Knowing Jesus, there is NO greater thing. Oh to know the power of His Risen Life and to Know Him in His suffering, I saw in them the Truth and was forever spurred on.
All I Want- The Smith Band- Anyone remember Metro? I will never forget when this CD came out. I remember walking into Metro and getting so excited that this was the week the CD would be there! I bet i listen to this track a hundred times. It was exactly what my heart was singing. All I want is YOU. Stephen and Star- your songs and your lives ministered to me from a far as a college student and now as a wife and mom. Thank you for your lives and your dear friendship.
We've come to Declare- Jami Smith- Jami was also a worshipleader at Metro. And yes, I admit, i secretly wanted to be her one day. But this song was sang by many people at the time and for some reason the way she arranged it forever stuck with me. I went on to lead it as often as SBU and Springhill would allow! sorry if i ruined it for you! Hallelujah We are Free! We have Come to Declare the Beauty of the LORD!
Pure and Holy Passion- Candi Pearson- while we are talking about "amber gaddis songs" I will skip to this beloved song. I first heard this song in the SBU chapel when Passion did the Pre-Oneday rally. (Oct. 99) I wrote it in my journal and as quickly as i could get to my guitar I tried to figure it out. I sang it in my heart until i heard it again at Oneday in May 00. That entire summer it was the prayer of my heart, i wrote it in my journal, prayed it for my friends and for myself. It wasnt until the following fall that it came out on CD. And you better believe I was skipping class the day it came out!
Your Renown- Shaun Groves- Jonas did this song the summer of '02. Jeff Carson was an intern that year and quickly made this song his own. I will always hear this song in your voice Jeff. Lord its Your Renown that I live for now.
I am One- Jonas- or any song by Jonas for that matter. This song was the theme of the Houston Project. Jake Smith Jr., Josh Welker, Jasmine and Kyle, Steve P. and Chris- Your lives and music ministered to so many those summers. May you be forever blessed.
Not to Us-Joel Ingle/Jami Smith-David Nasser voice over- A Call to Die. This devotional changed so many of our lives. This song was the beginning of Jerrell and Kay's wedding and was one of the theme songs of the summer of '02. This song went on to be in our wedding as well.
Manifest- Soul dance Free- all i have to say is HFBC High School Camp '02
You Said- Shane and Shane- I used this song in our Devo times the summer of '02, one time specifically we used it in the sactuary as each one asked God for the nations. and I used so many many many other songs of shane and shane.
Breathe- Kathryn Scott- Does anyone remember that Clear Vision Sketch to this song about the husband and wife who are in a closed country who were being held hostage? Woah. I have seen that A LOT of times and i cry every time. May Vernon and I be that strong in You oh Lord.
Reveal- By the Tree- I will never forget the summer when Chuck wrote this song. I remember laying on the floor at Camp Ethel (logan valley) and Jerrell playing this song for us over the sound system. It was so powerful. Can I be close to you? Can i just touch you Lord? It went on to be released the following year and was a hit in the summer at the Houston Project!
Beloved- By the Tree- oldschool- This brings it back yall. WAY to many memories to write about this one.
