THE WORSHIP REFLECTIVE WITH SELENA SCHULZ, #92 - Meredith Andrews

Word Worship Music recording artist Meredith Andrews has a passion for leading people to Jesus through her music. Some of the Dove-winning artist's most popular tunes, include "Open Up the Heavens" and "Not For A Moment (After All)." She's intentional about her lyrics and how they impact the kingdom of God. She makes sure that her melodies are uplifting with a focus on our Heavenly Father. 

This time, we look at Meredith's newest single, "Live Out Loud" as well as her collaborative song, "Make Room," released earlier this year.

Live Out Loud

"My identity redeemed
My tomorrow is secure
I refuse to see through
Anything but faith"


I love the phrase Meredith sings here, "I refuse to see through anything but faith." It speaks of how impactful our perspective is on our circumstances. Of course, optimism cannot combat darkness by itself, but having a positive outlook allows for an unclouded trust in Jesus. This leads to a stronger belief that He'll come through as He always does. 

This song gets better as it transitions into the bridge. Meredith cleverly mixes prophecy into this melody: "This is where dry bones get back up again/This is where dead dreams come to life again/This is where faith can change reality." Meredith has an incredible grasp of God's power and her dedication to sharing the Gospel with others is inspiringly unique. I pray this anthem will resonate with you--no matter what you're going through. A perspective of faith is always applicable, and our God will always protect and provide for you. Why not live out loud about those truths?

 

Make Room

"And I will make room for You, Jesus
To do whatever You want to
Come do whatever You want to"


The heartfelt lyrics of this song beg the question: "Are we truly willing to let God have His way?" I won't lie to you, sometimes that way is unpleasant, and rarely is it the path we would have chosen for ourselves. When I'm in the midst of a worldly mess, or something equally confining, I don't see the way out. To be honest, I normally don't even look for it. Something about being human makes me constantly think I know better. I don't. None of us do. And God? As the talented worship leaders cry out here, "Your way is better."

There's no need to fear God's work because as Romans 8:28 (NIV) says, "In all things, God works together with those who love Him to bring about what is good." However, this promise is easy to move aside in the face of adversity. So, despite this, we must come to terms with the question I posed at the very beginning: are we truly willing to let God have His way? I pray for a softened heart over everyone struggling with this today. Lord, "Here is where I lay it down/You are all I'm chasing now/This is my surrender."
