In the midst of my daughter Olivia being born with health issues, and our Senior Pastor at HopeUC fighting a battle with her health, I’ve had to get back to foundations and discover for myself where I stood in my faith, and what I believed in the midst of trials. At the beginning of this year, I felt like God gave me the theme ‘Heaven On Earth’ for my year.
Jesus taught us to pray:
“Your Kingdom Come, Your will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven” (Matt 6:10)
Why would He teach us to pray like this if God’s will was going to happen automatically? The truth is, it’s not.
We have an enemy who’s plan is to steal from us, and to kill and destroy our lives… But Jesus came to give us life and life abundantly. So how do we tap into this healing and life that we so desperately find ourselves needing in this world? By choosing life and choosing to press into, partner with, follow and trust our loving Heavenly Father.
That’s what the song ‘Heaven On The Earth’ is about – it’s a deeply personal song to me, the lyrics are deeply heartfelt and I have found hope in them over the past months leading me to write and record this new song with the LUKAS team. Hope you enjoy!
