Rooted in the confession of Isaiah 26:8, Passion exists to glorify God by uniting students in worship, prayer and justice for spiritual awakening in this generation. From its start in 1995, the Passion Movement has had a singular mission–calling students from campuses across the nation and around the world to live for what matters most. This yearly conference uses live worship music and teaching to encourage young people to live for the glory of God. In 1998, Passion decided to document the musical portion of the annual conferences via live worship recordings — raw, in-your-face praise songs with an alternative edge.

My Review:

This isn’t my first listen to a Passion album and it isn’t my last. There is something, though, that stands out before I even pushed play on Salvation’s Tide is Rising. I think the title is a decree, a proclamation, an encouragement and a hope.

Each song only magnifies the stirring. Starting off with Kristian Stanfill and the title track, I experienced the music. I didn’t just listen. It’s hard to explain but it was as if the words and the music synced to my heart. There is so much that resonates, every song felt like, “Yes! This is where I am. This is where the church is.” Just when I had a favorite, the next song played.

This is a standout album that will be one I will play until I’ve worn it out and my gadgets refuse to play it anymore.

I don’t just highly recommend Passion: Salvation’s Tide is Rising, I am telling you if Jesus is Your Savior, if you are an intercessor or worship person, get your hands on this now. And if Jesus isn’t on your radar, but you’re curious, I challenge you to listen in a quiet place and ask God to speak to you.

I promise after listening to Salvation’s Tide is Rising, you won’t be the same.

Album Review: Let it Be Jesus by Christy Nockels (GIVEAWAY OPPORTUNITY!)

Posted by Julie on April 27, 2015 in Book Review, encouragement, God's Word, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons, surrender |

91nMCrcQaTL._SY355_Description:

As a worship leader for many years, Christy Nockels has been an integral part of Passion Conferences from its inception in 1997.  She’s seen first hand music sweep people into the presence of God in a powerful way. A pastor’s kid, who was born in Fort Worth and raised in Oklahoma, she grew up singing in church. She met her husband, Nathan, in 1993 at the Christian Artists Seminar in Estes Park, Co. They recorded an independent record with fellow worship leader Charlie Hall under the name Sons & Daughters that led to an invitation from Louie Giglio to participate in the first Passion conference in Austin. Christy’s voice gained a national platform when she and Nathan formed the duo Watermark, recording four acclaimed albums before that musical season ended, paving the way for Christy’s solo career. In 2008, the couple moved to Atlanta to become part of Passion City Church where she serves on the worship team with sixstepsrecords labelmates Chris Tomlin and Kristian Stanfill. The following year, Nockels released her acclaimed solo debut, Life Light Up and spent much of the next two years touring with Tomlin and Passion.

Leave a comment with your email telling me what Christy Nockels song is your favorite.

I’m fairly new to Christy Nockels and her music but “You Revive Me,” her song with the Passion band has become my anthem for the last couple years. When I heard about the opportunity to review Let it Be Jesus, I jumped on it.

This live recording features everything for anyone wanting to draw closer to the Lord. The first track, “Freedom Song,” is upbeat, catchy, and perfect for those mountain days when everything is going just right. It’s also a great reminder when things aren’t going so well. “My Anchor” is moving and anointed. I could feel God’s presence as I drank in the words. I want to say it was my favorite, but I loved “Let it Be Jesus.” “The Wondrous Cross.” Frankly, there’s no bad song here.

. If this is a new artist for you, I believe you will find yourself not just enjoying her music, but feeling closer to God as you spend time with Him while listening.

ALBUM RELEASE DATE: APRIL 28th! To order, please click here.

Thankful for Passion by Tracy Ruckman

Julie’s Note:
It’s my pleasure to introduce Tracy Ruckman, Write Integrity Press and Pix N Pens publisher. I’m thankful Tracy took a leap of faith with me and my writing this year.

Passion

“a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement

for something or about doing something.”

(Merriam-Webster)

This year, I’m thankful for passion – that I’m a passionate person thankful to be doing what I’m passionate about, surrounded by people who are passionate about what they do.

I recently had a conversation with someone and asked if she were passionate about her chosen line of work. She replied that she had no time to be passionate about anything because she was raising kids. I understand – child-rearing demands our all 24/7. But her comment saddened me because I’ve been in jobs where I had no passion for them, and it affected the other areas of my life. Perhaps if she were passionate about her line of work, the passion would flood her home life, her marriage, her entire outlook in such a way that she would be refueled, recharged daily, rather than drained.

In his letter to the Colossians, Paul discusses living a Christian life, how we are to live our lives when Jesus is our Lord and Savior. He writes, “Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically, as something done for the Lord and not for men” (v. 23). I’m guilty of not always living out this verse – I think back to two particular jobs I held where I did not give my all and wonder if I had, would I have enjoyed them more? Was I doing the work for man, and not for the Lord? In both of the jobs, that was the case – I lost my focus in my determination to provide for my family, and it stripped my passion.

This year, I’m thankful to be passionate about all I’m doing. As a publisher, I love our authors, I love our books, I love our teamwork, I love our mission, I love the growth we are experiencing, I love the creativity I get to use and that I get to witness on a daily basis. I’m passionate about helping our authors grow and stretch themselves, and passionate about the world discovering their incredible talent.

As a student seeking my MFA, I love writing creatively again (as opposed to the four years of academic writing I did while earning my bachelor’s degree), I love learning how to craft screenplays, I love learning how my classmates craft their own. I’m thankful for the opportunity to learn and to grow, and for the possibilities all of this provides for my family’s future.

What are you passionate about? Are you doing it? If not, are there steps you can take to get there?
