A couple weeks ago, Steven McWhirter released the video for "Heavy Load" from The Choir Sessions Album. This album is a kingdom collaboration of culture and creativity, feat. Jason Clayborn and The Atmosphere Changers. In a time where the world and the Bride are more fragmented than ever, we are pressing into the longing of God for His children to be one (John 17:20-21). It’s the marrying of worship and gospel choir music that releases a new sound.
This verse and chorus hit me late last night out of nowhere. This year has been the strangest year I can imagine, for everybody and for me specifically (having the twins, my job suddenly just grinding to a halt). In the midst of a lot of sadness and loss in the world it has somehow been one of the most formative years of my life, and I’m incredibly grateful for that. I think I imagined that by the time I had kids music would have burned me out, but somehow in being home I’ve really fallen in love with it again and feel deep peace and excitement at the same time. Here’s to putting 2020 behind us and believing that the best is yet to come.
