Women of Faith Worship CD

Little old me had the pleasure of stopping by the Women of Faith blog the other week just as they posted this exciting opportunity!

Normally, I always come by these opportunities a little too late, so I really didn't think I would have the pleasure of being able to receive the cd or give everyone my honest thoughts on it. Last week when I opened the mailbox and saw a package from Women of Faith it didn't even dawn on me what it really was. I thought it was my confirmation packet for the conference that I will be going to in September in Philadelphia. (Oh and can I just say that this is my FIRST WOF conference and I AM SOOO EXCITED!!)

I couldn't tell.

Well imagine my surprise when I opened it up and found the cd that I was sure I would never get! What a great surprise to brighten my day~! So, without further is my honest opinion on the Women of Faith Worship cd.

There are a total of 10 songs on the Women of Faith Worship cd that range from songs that make you want to get up and dance to songs that make you want to just sit alone and reflect of the goodness of God. Many of these songs I have heard before by other artists but I must say I do like their spin on them. I believe the original artists would be very pleased with the WOF version of the songs.

*Track 1- God of This City- a great song to start the cd with. I love this song because it reminds me that no matter what -there is NO ONE like our God. It starts out soft and builds with the end of the song you feel like you just want to stand with hands raised in praise and thank Him. .

*Track 2- I Am Free- This song is a great song to chase away those "frumpy feelings" that you just can't shake when you get out of bed. You know the ones that the deceiver tries to fill your head with..."I don't want to go to work" or " I can't do this". Listen to this song and it will chase those thoughts right out of your head and remind you that you are FREE indeed. In fact, I was on my way to work this morning shouting along to all the cars around me. I am sure some of those drivers thought I must be free on a day pass from the local loony bin.

*Track 3- Just Wanna Say- Honestly the first time I listened to this song I didn't really like it. I am not one who likes music that has a lot of horns (trumpets etc) and this song has that. However, after listening to it a few times it actually has grown on me. It actually is quite catchy and I find myself having the words "Said you'd never leave me, Said You won't forsake me" playing over and over in my mind. A great song to sing to remind yourself of the fact that He will never leave you or forsake you.

*Track 4- Lead Me To The Cross- This song speaks for itself with the following lyrics that make me want to sit a reflect on His goodness:
Lead me to the cross
Where your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord, I lay me down
Rid me of myself
I belong to You
Oh lead me, lead me to the cross

Enough said.

*Track 5- You Are God Alone- This is another song that leaves me very much reflecting on His goodness and love. This song starts out very soft and reverent and builds to the point of wanting to stand in awe by the end of the song.

*Track 6- Indescribable- I like the way this song feels very light and easy. Another one that makes you want to sing along and announce "You are amazing God!"

*Track 7- Glorious- This is probably the only song on the cd that I just can't seem to get into. Once again, this song has a lot of horns playing which just isn't my thing. But, if you like that type of jazzy will probably love it.

*Track 8- Healer- If you have ever had the opportunity to hear the Kari Jobe version of this song you may think that this one misses the mark. Its hard to blow me away after hearing Kari's version but the WOF Worship team came really close to the mark here. A good version and a great reminder of how he is our Great Physician.

*Track 9- Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing- This is one hymn that I never tire of hearing. This is a great addition to this worship album.

*Track 10- Amazed- it is hard for me to pick an absolute favorite on this album but if I had to pick just would be this track. I love how calming this song is to the soul. This song is a beautiful reminder of how in awe we should be at how much He loves us.

So, overall I love this album and would recommend it to anyone looking for some great songs to jam to whether in the car or at home cleaning the house. You might want to watch though, when singing along in the car...they just might revoke your day pass!

I do want to say in closing that I was asked to give my honest opinion of the cd whether it be good or bad...and that is what you see here.

May the rest of your week filled with the presence of Him!
