Renowned worship leader and songwriter Pat Barrett has a brand-new album, Shelter. The 12 track album was a joy to create for this Atlanta-based artist mixing worshipful moments with simple, joyful songs that highlight the power of gratitude and the fleeting nature of time. With this album, Barrett acknowledges there is hardship in this world, but there is security in knowing who holds it all and who our Shelter is.
“The more life you live, the more hurt that stacks up and the more things don’t go your way. You have to put all of that somewhere, and I want God to be the One I turn to in all of that, that He becomes a shelter,” Pat Barrett shares. “What else could possibly hold the complexity and the intensity and the joy and the suffering? What other place can handle all that?"
Barrett adds, "I think the ‘belong’ word is a really important thing to remember regardless of what you feel in the moment. And we all experience things in our life that we wish didn’t happen or we wish we hadn’t said or we wish we hadn’t done, and it is always so powerful to go back to where you belong. This song reminds me of who I belong to and that’s been extremely liberating and beautiful and a freeing experience."
