In 2014, Phil Wickham faced an identity crisis. A vocal polyp was found and he was faced that he might never be able to sing professionally again. This was discovered as he was writing songs for his seventh album. Although the polyp could be removed, there was a lengthy healing process which included not being able to even speak for an entire month. During this healing process, Wickham had a spiritual revelation of God’s love that is evident in this new collection of worship songs.
About the CD
This worship CD contains twelve songs that will propel your worship time to another level. I can just imagine hearing all of these songs while sitting in a congregation either in my own local church or in an arena at a concert and either way, the presence of God will be ushered in during the praises.
The song lineup begins with two upbeat worship songs, Doxology/Amen and Better Than Life. Then comes the already popular Your Love Awakens Me. This song is already played often of my local station and I can’t get enough of it. The lyrics just get stuck in your head,
“Your love is greater,
Your love is stronger,
Your love awakens, awakens, awakens me.”
Next, Madison Cunningham joins Wickham to sing The Secret Place, which slows the pace down a little. The beat is picked back up with Wide Awake and My All in All, both featuring great lyrics. I could definitely see my own church singing My All in All during worship service! Starmaker (Above the Earth) is also a slower worship song which is great since you really don’t want to miss the lyrics to this one as it is praises God’s holiness. I predict Children of God will be the next radio hit from this album with a winning combo of tempo and lyrics. Stand in Awe is another worship anthem that I could see being used in many church services. Then three slower, soothing worship melodies end the CD with Body Mind & Soul, As It Is In Heaven and Spirit of God.
I love this worship CD and believe the message is one that could only be revealed by the experience Wickham had to go through to gain a new revelation of God’s love. Not only will these worship anthems bless you in during your own private worship time, but I believe many churches will also benefit from incorporating them into their worship services.
