Theme song

Several years ago, Louie Giglio (one of my favorite Christian speakers) did a series at church called "Soundtrack". Our lives have a soundtrack. Certain songs evoke feelings, emotions, memories. Something simple as 'Jesus Loves Me' can transport me back in time to when I was 5 years old and sitting in Sunday School. Or listening to a Richard Marx song brings me back to my senior prom.

I live life through a soundtrack. Taking note of particular songs that have meaning to me. I find a way to work them into my life.

I have found a new one!

In February 2010, Casey Darnell was leading worship at our church. He showcased a new song that he had written. The lyrics pierced my heart instantly and I couldn't wait to get my hands on the lyrics. I went so far as to have my husband contact Casey via Facebook to see if he would share the lyrics with me (the album had not been released yet). The song was my anthem, especially with the speaking engagement that I had coming up. I wanted to work the song into my talk (Craig forgot to give me the lyrics so I never did get to use them).

Fast forward to May 11, 2010. Casey FINALLY released his newest EP on iTunes featuring MY song! I had been flirting with the idea of buying the album - especially since Casey was giving FREE socks to the needy for every iTunes purchase of his new album. Forget the flirting - I BOUGHT IT!!!!

The words are JUST as powerful now as they were back in February. Between life, eating disorder & family the words just ring true. I wish I could share the song with you so you can listen to it..... But I can share the words.

Power in Your Name

Written by Casey Darnell


There is power in Your name,

There is mercy there is grace

Where the weary soul finds rest

In the presence of Jesus

There is love that never fails,

No matter how dark My God Prevails

In our weakness there is strength

In the presence of Jesus

Looking back on my life, the abuse, the bullying... It doesn't matter how dark my life looked. God was always there. The only place I've ever been able to find rest has been in the loving arms of my God.

Casey is a talented singer/songwriter with a heart for God. If you can, purchase the entire album. It WILL speak to your heart.

Many blessings,
