The song “Love Came Down” is a song that was written about trusting God even in the middle of overwhelming circumstances. Sometimes life can be so difficult. I’ve struggled in my own life with feeling like I couldn’t hear the voice of God clearly, especially in the middle of stressful situations. The best way to describe this song is to imagine that you are on an airplane that is descending. You will go from seeing everything clear as you look out of the window to seeing nothing but clouds. It can be really scary not knowing what is in front of you. Now add turbulence to the situation and a pilot talking over a microphone that you can barley hear because of the loud noises of turbulence and things bouncing around. As the turbulence gets worse stress begins to enter in the equation and the pilots voice becomes more and more faint. It’s at this point that you have a choice to make. The choices are, you can live those next few moments in fear until you land safely on the ground, or you can trust that the pilot knows exactly what he is doing and is more than qualified to land your plane. I guess what I am trying to say is this. You may not be able to hear God as clearly as you would like to at times but you should take confidence in the fact that Your God always lands the plane!
“Never Too Far Gone” is one of those songs that doesn’t pull any punches. The lyrics are straight forward and honest. The song was written from the point of view of a friend who is watching his buddy crash and burn. He is telling him that life doesn’t have to be this way. He is saying to his buddy “You aren’t to far Gone for God to fix your situation”. Not only is he telling his buddy that he doesn’t have to go out like this, he is also saying I WON”T LET YOU GO OUT LIKE THIS! This is a song about a true friend who believes in a God that still meets people where they are.This song is an ANTHEM for all the true friends out there!
