Deliverer...

This week I had the opportunity to co-host 2 worship nights at Saddleback Church. Both nights were attended by people who came ready to worship and sing out. It is always a huge blessing to lead a night of worship where all that is needed is to start a song and the people sing it out on their own. They didn't need to be coaxed or cajoled into worshipping, they came ready. It was with this in mind that I had a chance to teach them a new song called Deliverer. Vicky Beeching and I sat in my living room and wrote this song for her new cd that will be coming out on April 6th. Even as I listened to Vicky record a video of herself singing the song to send to her record label, Integrity, I knew that this song had something special. This song had what I needed to say as a worshipper and what I think the church as a whole needs to sing out and say to the Lord. My husband, Jonny MacIntosh, produced Vicky's cd and gathered a group of people together to sing the "gang" vocals on the bridge of this song. A few of the members in the gang were the lovely guys from the band Leeland. It was fantastic when it got to the bridge of this song to sing out and worship with these guys knowing that each person there was worshipping as we recorded. We were crying out "Your blood is enough to break every chain! Your blood is enough to break every chain! Your blood is enough to break every chain!" We believed it then as we sang it and now that I am able to lead it during a worship set I sing it with that same belief. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is healing.
