As you already know by now, I am slightly obsessed with Christian music. I am the weird person that is singing at the top of her lungs at the stoplight, most likely freaking out every driver next to me. Oh well!
Anyways, I am super excited about Colton Dixon’s new record, A Messenger! I have been listening to it non-stop since it came out yesterday. Colton is such a wonderful example for young people and every one of faith. He is the same age as me, so I really look up to him and admire his strong faith. He is very talented! When I listened to his single, “You Are,” I knew I was going to love his music. ”You Are” is one of the songs I belt out when I hear it on the radio.
Usually I try to pick out a few of my favorites when I write about a CD, but I can’t pick out just a few….I love them all! If I have to pick out a few favorites, I love “Let Them See You, Love Has Come for Me, Scars, and Never Gone.” I just can’t get over how much these songs touch my heart and how super talented Colton is. I am his age and what have I accomplished for Christ?—it definitely gives me that needed push!
Because I love this CD, you will probably here about it some more (I know, I am prone to ramble and act like a giddy school girl when talking about my favorite music). For now, I will leave you with one of my favorites. After listening to it, I know you will run to Wal-Mart or go on iTunes and get his CD. Be prepared to fall in love with the music
“Love Has Come for Me” and “Scars” reminds me that I don’t have it all together–I DESPERATELY need Jesus. I try to do it on my and get my act together, but then I fall on my face. I need him 24/7 in my life because I can’t do it on my own, as much as I try to do it on my own, I am just fooling myself. All I have to say, is praise God for using Colton’s music to work in my heart and life. I am thick-headed and stubborn, so I need someone to knock me on the head and remind me I am stupid for trying to walk this life alone. “Scars” reminds me that when I goof up and fall flat on my face, God is waiting to dust me off and pick up the pieces. God using these times in our life to remind us where we are and where we’ve come from. Our scars are important in our faith story, reminding us of God’s redemption and love for us.
Ok, so I will stop rambling and let you have a chance to listen to these amazing songs! God bless!
