Matt Pelt - Standing In The Ashes (CCM)

There's nothing quite like the power of Jesus to change a person's life. The song 'Standing in the Ashes' by Matt Pelt beautifully captures this experience, describing how Jesus' love, grace, and sacrifice can take us from where we were to the person we were meant to be. Matt wrote this song a while ago (prior to August 2020), and has now officially released it... and we're excited about this release.

Matt Pelt - Standing In The AshesThe lyrics speak of a melody written on the heart, a revelation of who Jesus is, and walls being torn down. It speaks of the love of Jesus as the river in the desert and the perfect shelter in the midst of life's storms. It talks about how Jesus' blood had a mission to bring redemption and change the world through the power of His sacrifice.

Matt sings about a new day turning, revival burning, and hearing Jesus' voice sing that He is still overcoming. The chorus is one that stays in my head long after the song has finished, where Matt sings about letting the fire of Jesus bring revival, purifying and burning down all of our failures, leaving behind ashes of who you used to be.

The message of the song is clear, Jesus' transformative power is real, and it can change us from the inside out. It doesn't matter how far we've fallen, or how deep we've sunk, the love and grace of Jesus can always reach us and raise us up, out of the ashes, to become the person that He meant us to be.

'Love Might Not Wait' by Jeff H. Ulrich - A Melodic Invitation to Embrace Divine Redemption

I hear echoes of sacred scripture in Jeff H. Ulrich's 'Love Might Not Wait,' rekindling our connection to the divine and calling our hearts toward eternal love. This song is an enthralling testament to God's love and the promise of His soon return. This song is a call to timely repentance set against timely observations of a world that sees good as evil and light as darkness. Ulrich's lyrics gently implore us: 'Are you captive in time to a world of no meaning? But there is the love that liberates.' It emphasizes God's love as the ultimate liberator, and a beacon calling out to all souls. It's a reminder, like a plea from a kindred spirit, that we are not abandoned to darkness, but are the intended recipients of divine love that gave His Son for us. His love is not an abstract concept; rather, it is a gift steeped in profound sacrifice, as demonstrated by Christ's ultimate sacrifice. Listening to 'Love Might Not Wait' is like being on the

'God of Israel' by Sean Feucht: Rising Above Division with Melodies of Unity

As we travel through the turbulent times of today, we discover a divine serenity that transcends cultural divides and societal unrest in the profound harmonies of Sean Feucht's song 'God of Israel.' This is not just another work of contemporary Christian music; it is a prayer that rises like the morning sun from America's heart to the farthest reaches of the globe. Sean Feucht, a Christian from the United States, collaborates with Israeli Jew Yair Levi and Lebanese Christian Carine Bassili to create a melodic message of unity and peace.

The echoes of 'God of Israel' call us all to unite under the sovereign banner of the God of Abraham, whether we are from the bustling cities of America, the tranquil corners of Lebanon, or amid the fiery war in the land of Israel. The lyrics and
