"I've legitimately contemplated retiring," began a vulnerable Facebook update from Jamie Grace yesterday. The 24-year-old "Hold Me" singer, who hasn't released an album since her 2014 sophomore project Ready To Fly, took to social media to share her heart on the new music she's been hard at work creating and the honest frustrations that come with not being able to share that music yet. 

"do you guys remember last Summer when I announced an acoustic record on Periscope and it never happened? that was awkward. it's hard when all you want to do is make a new record. you spend time and money for a year and a half. and it never happens. you write like crazy, record every minute you get, lose sleep and don't mind any of it. because it's gonna end in an album that's worth it. for a year and a half, y'all... a year and a half."

Between spending time in the studio most days, writing books, leading worship at her home church, working with children's ministry, playing shows and recording weekly YouTube videos for her many fans to enjoy, Jamie definitely has a full schedule these days, yet always gives her whole heart to each part of her job.
 


"there's an element of professionalism i've tried to maintain but the truth is i'm a human who has been broken and hurt. and that remains. i am grateful for experiences i have had. but if waking up every morning HOPING you get to share a new song is a part of "living the dream"? i want no part of it," Jamie's post continued. "i want to sing songs and play guitar. for Jesus. and His people. for you. and it just doesn't seem like i should have fight for that right..."

"When I can release new music -- I will. When I can release my album -- I will. And now that I have found the courage to no longer stay silent -- I won't. This may affect my career. That scares me. But I know I'm not the first person to feel hurt or as though they been forgotten about. So at the risk of it all, I am posting this. To encourage you, remind you, tell you -- that at the start, middle and end of every day. No one deserves a pedestal in your heart or mind or even your career -- but Jesus. There is only space for One at the top," Jamie concluded.
