julie portrait3BW[From Julie]We recently picked up the new album by one of our favorite artists, Sara Groves.  Thanks to a wonderful friend for introducing us to Sara’s music.  We love it.  The new album is called Invisible Empires.  It’s wonderful.  You have to get it.  Sara’s music is full of reflective thought.  She writes terrific lyrics that have deep undertones that you sometimes won’t get until you’ve listened to it for awhile.  It’s just so rich.  Noel has already posted about one of her songs here.  If that post was enjoyable than you will probably like this one as well.  Excellent news!

The first track on the new album is called Miracle.  It’s a song about allowing your relationship to become a miracle against all obstacles .  Forgiving your spouse, and letting hurts heal is like, “knowing things you can’t know,” and, “saying what you can’t say,” and, “hearing what you can’t hear.”  Opening your heart and letting God take control of your relationship makes room for a miracle.  He is the master of making the impossible possible (Matt 19:26); The master at turning ordinary selfish people into miracles.

I love this song.  Right from the first time I heard it I thought it was powerful.  It’s my prayer for my marriage put to music.  I want my marriage to be a miracle.  When we are old and Noel is gray 🙂 I want to look back at the years and be able to identify God’s fingerprints.  I want to know that we allowed the master to change the relationship between these two ordinary self absorbed people into something truly miraculous.  I want us to be a miracle.  I hope you want to be a miracle too.  So, have a listen, enjoy and feel uplifted.  Then go get the album. 🙂

Here is an interview with Sarah, talking about the album Invisible Empires.

This is the song I was writing about: Miracle.

“Miracle,” by Sara Groves (From Invisible Empires)

Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
Quiet our hearts for a little while

Things have been spoken
Shouldn’t be said
Rattles around in our hearts and our heads

Let’s feel what we cannot feel
Know what we cannot know
Let’s heal where we couldn’t heal
Oh, it’s a miracle, it’s a miracle

Things have been spoken
Shouldn’t be said
Rattles around in our hearts and our heads

Let’s feel what we cannot feel
Know what we cannot know
Let’s heal where we couldn’t heal
Oh, it’s a miracle, love is a miracle

Let’s feel what we cannot feel
Know what we cannot know
Let’s heal where we couldn’t heal
Oh, it’s a miracle

Let’s say what we cannot say
Let’s see what we cannot not see
Let’s hear what we could not hear
Oh it’s a mystery, love is a mystery
Oh it’s a miracle, it’s a miracle
Let’s be a miracle

EMPIRES
