What a Voice!

One thing I will share is that I don't watch American Idol. There are lots of reasons, but the main on being we don't have normal TV channels because we only have antennae and it doesn't pick up much. Anyway, all that to say...I had NO CLUE who Mandisa was.

But I do now.

She is awesome. What a voice. What a woman of God. What a testimony. What a God she serves...out loud!

Mandisa has a new CD coming out this week, which I now own (already). Her songs are powerful, not just because she has a voice of an angel, but because the lyrics are awesome...and well, powerful!

Here is a song called He Is With You and it was just too great for any words but the lyrics...

There's a time a time to live
And a time to die
There's a time to laugh
And a time to cry
There's a time for war
And a time for peace
There's a hand to hold
In the worst of these

He is with you when your faith is dead
And you can't even get out of bed
Or your husband doesn't kiss you anymore
He is with you when your baby's gone
And your house is still
And your heart is a stone
Cryin' God, what'd You do that for
He is with you

There's a time for yes
And a time for no
There's a time to be angry
And a time to let it go
There is a time to run
And a time to face it
There is love to see you
Through all of this

He is with you in the conference room
When the world is coming down on you
And your wife and kids don't know you anymore
He is with you in the ICU
When the doctors don't' know what to do
And it scares you to the core
He is with you

We may weep for a time
But joy will come in the morning
The morning light

He is with you when your kids are grown
When there's too much space
And you feel alone
And you're worried if you
Got it right or wrong
Yes He is with you
When you've given up on ever finding your true love
Someone who feels like home
He is with you

When nothing else is left
And you take your final breath
He is with you

written by Ronnie Freeman and Cindy Morgan

You have to hear her sing this song...and Victorious...

You are great at advertising. I have had her first one for awhile and when I read your blog I rushed out and bought #2.
