The Inspiration and Meaning Behind each Song


Mighty Rushing Breath of God

At a conference, I had the privilege of sitting under the teaching of Dutch Sheets, who literally inspired two of the songs on this CD. He proclaimed that “the Jeremiah 33:3 Revolution” had begun and described “strategic times of the blowing of the breath of God again intensely” on us, hence, “Mighty Rushing Breath of God” was born! I long to see Him blow over this nation and I personally desire to see the “great and mighty things” that I have not yet seen or known. (Acts 2:1-2; Jeremiah 33:3)

Nothing Too Difficult

Upon hearing the news that a dear friend of mine was in a coma and might possibly never regain consciousness due to brain damage, I was completely devastated. I ended up on my living room floor crying out to God for her healing. As the words of this song gently drifted into my mind in response to my cries, I found my way to my piano. Over the course of two years, I watched the Lord miraculously restore my friend, and this song is a testimony of His utter faithfulness. “”Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘If it is too difficult in the sight of the remnant of this people in those days, will it also be too difficult in My sight?’ declares the Lord of hosts.” (Zechariah 8:6)

Crossing Over

This was the other song that was born out of the teaching of Dutch Sheets. He was sharing that Abraham was referred to as “the Hebrew” long before the Israelites were called the Hebrews. The original rendering of the word “Hebrew” is “a crossing over one”. Likewise, each one of us is called to be willing to cross over into the places we cannot yet see – to walk by faith and not by sight. If there is a threshold before you, my prayer is that this song will give you the courage to cross over it! (Genesis 14:13; 2 Corinthians 5:7)

I Will Tremble

I love the Prophets! Isaiah 66:2 declares “to this one I will look, to him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My Word.” One of the things the Church in America is often lacking is the fear of the Lord. We’ve grown accustomed to hearing Scripture and perhaps even a little too comfortable in His holy presence – that the idea of trembling at His Word almost seems unnecessarily formal. If “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,” I am convinced that we need the Holy Spirit to teach us to tremble! (Psalms 111:10)

Fill My Cup

One of the greatest influences in my life has been Beth Moore. Her life-filled teaching and ravenous hunger for His Word literally birthed a jealous desire in my heart to never be satisfied with anything less in myself. I can’t recall which Bible Study it was from, but she was discussing the importance of going to God to have our cups filled; that we should not look to our mates or our children, our jobs or our ministries to “fill our cup”; but to Him alone. It is not always easy to see when we’re looking to other people or other things to give us value or to make us feel good about ourselves, but it certainly is not difficult to recognize how contrary it would be to Scripture to find our identity in anything or anyone other than Jesus. Our life is hidden with Christ in God. This song was formed out of a desire to be extremely intentional in my pursuit of God and to only look to Him as I continue my journey to spiritual maturity. (Colossians 3:3; Psalms 23:5 )

These Are the Tears

After a particularly difficult day I found myself crying myself to sleep. Early the next morning, I awoke to the words of this song drifting through my mind. Like salve brings healing to a wound, the words sunk deeply into my hurts of the day before. That the Creator of the universe takes notice of my tears and sees them as important enough to keep, persuades me that this God I serve loves me perfectly. (2 Kings 20:5; Psalms 56:8-9)

My Heart Overflows

What does worship look like? Describing the experience of coming into God’s holy presence is a daunting task. After reading Psalm 45, I found myself at my piano echoing some of the very same ideas. The image of bowing before Him with a heart full of worship came easily, but I soon discovered that my ability to describe the overflow of my heart was much more challenging. My soul is indeed quieted before my King and my lips can genuinely proclaim, “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord!” (Psalms 45:1,11; Revelation 4:8-11)

I Am Undone

‘As The Deer’ was one of the songs I cut my teeth on, and I remember well the first time I heard an explanation of how the songwriter came to the place of composing this classic scripture song. He had been writing worship music for a living and had basically found himself in a spiritual desert place. Just as the heavy rains come on the heels of the dry season, times I have been most crushed by the ferocious waves of His love have been after a lonely season in the wilderness. Taken by surprise, I am suddenly immersed in His presence and completely “undone.” I remember crumbling on my piano after writing this song, being still, knowing that He is indeed, God. (Psalms 42:1-7; Psalms 44:21; Isaiah 6:5; Psalms 46:10)

Nothing Will I Withhold

This song is the celebration of a season spent in the Song of Solomon. I was well aware that I had been rescued by grace and washed in His blood, but I did not comprehend how unrelenting His love for me actually was. Meditating on this book allowed me to grasp the concept of being His Bride and took me beyond the outer courts and into the Holy of Holies. Drawn into His chambers, I discovered that there was nothing I needed to hide to retain His love and affection. With time I became more and more convinced that I would gain nothing by withholding myself from Him. I am persuaded. I am loved. Song of Solomon 1:2-4)

Beautiful Glad Tidings

My first husband, Mark, was led to Christ by the parents of one of his high school buddies. This precious couple faithfully kept in touch with him over the years and when it came time to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary, we were invited to attend. The day before we were scheduled to travel to Texas, I was compelled to sit down at the piano. As I searched the Scriptures for words to frame my thanks, this joyful song was brought forth. I had been scheduled to be in the recording studio that evening and while there I asked if the engineer would let me just lay down this song so I could give it to this dear couple for an anniversary gift. Shocked that it took only one run through, I found myself utterly amazed by God’s grace. At the close of the wonderful evening of celebrating their anniversary with family and friends, I had the unique privilege of playing this song for them as a tribute of their faithfulness in preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. May others be inspired and encouraged to be faithful to do the same! ((Romans 10:15; Isaiah 61:10 )
