Worship with a Pop Flair| Posted March 22, 2017
It's been five years since the world was presented with an album from Christian pop icon Jaci Velasquez. In that time, she's been busy being a wife, mom and radio host, just to name a few of her many hats. Jaci is a woman of many talents, and her new album Trust is just more proof of that. Trust is not only her first solely worship album, it's also her first album to be released in English and Spanish at the same time (its counterpart is Confío).
We all go through struggles and trials in life, and Jaci has let the world know with her newest release exactly who has sustained her during some of the dark days of her own life. Jaci has shared from her own experience just how important it is to know that God is the one in control. When her oldest son was diagnosed on the Autism spectrum, it was a time when her own faith and trust were tested. It is out of those days of learning that Trust was formed.
"Trust You" kicks off the album by lifting up praise to God for always being there with us no matter what, an anthem for those going through trials. He is the "God Who Moves the Mountains" in our lives. When we're broken and call on Him, all He asks of us is to trust Him, because He's capable of changing those things we can't.
In those hard moments, sometimes we come to realize that one of our mountains is just being too busy. Jaci sings "Rest" from a place of vulnerability. As any parent knows, sometimes there are days where you're just on the go constantly. Unfortunately, those can be the days where we don't take the time to pray or spend time with God. "Rest" is not only a reminder for us, but a prayer to God to help us remember to take the time to just stop and rest in Him.
The Bottom Line: Jaci has done a spectacular job sharing her heart with the world through her album Trust. Her honesty shines through her music, and her willingness to listen when God prompted her to go in a new direction are what make for a stunning work to add to her collection. God will do big things through Jaci's newest work.
