I can't wait for this to finally be out... so many of the people I love... so many songs that are close to my heart... Peace Be Still is a song that started on the Sea of Galilee... it's about a promise God had given me... I remember writing the promise on a rock and throwing it into the waves.... because what better place to leave a prayer than in a place that still remembers the feet of Jesus walking on its surface... I remember saying to my friend @yahrisdurso "I'm gonna write a song about this"... A month later, that promise id written down at Galilee was fulfilled and then suddenly looked like it was going to fall apart... and I remember hearing Jesus say "Do you trust me?"... for me, waves represented disappointment- it's why it was so important to sing "Im not gonna be afraid, coz these waves are only waves"... I'm pretty sure I turned up to write with @andrew__holt & @hopedarst (who are legends) crying my heart out... and saying "I'm gonna need to write about peace today because it feels like the furthest thing away"... I think that's the choice we all have- to declare what is true over what it feels like and move in the opposite spirit.... there's a whole lot more to the story, but what a joy to be able to sing our way through and to breakthrough and worship before the answer comes... @lauren_daigle you are my favorite and I love how you let this song get in your spirit... you lead it with such authority and our team would't be the same without you! And @max.corwin you really put your heart into setting this song up to win... and we love you!
@henryseeley thanks for being the ultimate champion of others and believing in our whole team... not to mention suggesting that I change the title of the song (Because I was gonna call it Galilee 😂) You're the best there is!
Maybe this post is too long, but to say I'm excited is an understatement... This is just one song out of so many that I can't wait for you to hear... I love our @thebelongingco people so much- it takes ALL of us together- not just one song, or story, or singer, or sound... Friday is coming... and it's going to be awesome...
