Giveaway Thursday: Life Light Up

by jessicaturner on June 4, 2009

Without question, Christy Nockels is one of my favorite female vocalists of all time. I LOVE her. For several years, Matthew and I attended the church that she and her husband, Nathan, attended. The Sundays that she lead worship were the most worshipful, holy experiences of our time at that church. Her gifted ability to bring people to the throne of God is unlike any artist I have ever encountered.

Her new album, Life Light Up, released this week and it is AMAZING. This is her first solo album, and I am loving it (she previously sang with Nathan as the group Watermark. You also may know her from Passion.). I have been listening to Life Light Up all night and can’t wait to listen to it all day tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day, and the next day… you get the idea.

(As a side note: Watermark’s last album, Grateful People, has been in my car’s CD player since it released two years ago – and I listen to it a few times a week.)

Here’s a video of the title track.

I am THRILLED to be giving away FIVE copies of Life Light Up today.

Just leave a comment with something you are thankful for and I will select five winners at random in the morning.

Happy Giveaway Thursday!

I am thankful for my beautiful family. My husband serves as our audio/visual coordinator for the contemporary church at our church. My almost-3-year-old daughter is thriving and teaching me new things every day. My ever-growing baby that will join our famly in November reminds me every day of God's goodness and faithfulness. I'm also thankful to be able to sing praises to my King, and I'm grateful to have sung many of Christy's songs myself. I know this album is annointed and will have a copy- either from you or on my own. :)

Blessings,

This post and question are just what I needed today. I will be attending a funeral in a few hours for my great-great- aunt who passed away on Monday at the age of 90. I am thankful that God saw it fit for her to be on this earth for 90 wonderful years and allowed me to get to know and love her. I am named after her as well, so that's neat too. I know that she believed and trusted in Jesus and the debt he paid on calvary, so even though I will be saying good bye to her in the earthly sense today- I praise God that it is only temporary!

I'd never heard of her before, but suddenly hear her name popping up all over the blog world. I'll have to download some of her songs…

Today I have to go to the doctor because my lungs haven't been working well [reacting to the air on people coming into my home, even though I haven't gone outside at all]. Despite the fact that I'm going to feel miserable for a few weeks after going outside and breathing in the air, when I walk from the house to the car, and from the car to the doc's office… I'm going to feel a breeze across my face. And the sun is shining so brightly today… I'm going to memorize every moment of feeling the sun on my skin. Even if it's just for moments.

And I'm going to hope that my white skin doesn't sparkle like the vampires on Twilight. :0

I am thankful for my husband, and the fact that he got me "Grateful People" a couple of years ago. "Glory Baby" always gets to both of us, as we remember our four babies in heaven. That song, along with the rest of the album, always feeds my soul. My hubby and I share a really special connection over this album. I can't wait to hear her new stuff!!!

Today I am very much thankful for the health of both my children. As a recently new volunteer at a childrens hospital here in Florida, photographing terminally ill children. I am reminded daily to not take one single moment for granted with my children.

Today, I know of a mom that is home with her 22 month old daughter, that was recently sent home hospice for untreatable cancer. 22 MONTHS OLD. Yesterday she had pastors at her home to pray over her daughter and with them as a family because the baby is now sedated (and was just very mobil last week) and now have no idea how much time she has left.

Today, I photographed a 12 year old little boy that was hit by a car, (hit and run also). He was left to die. A few months ago, an active young boy, today in a wheel chair and forever mentally and physically crippled.

I am SO THANKFUL for my God and how big and how much he loves all of us.

God Bless.

I am thankful that I got to see Christy Nockles sing "Life Light Up" unexpectedly. My husband and I were blessed by our pastor with Chris Tomlin concert tickets recently (another thing to be thankful for). So apparently Chris Tomlin is friends with Christy Nockles, and she was singing back up for him that night. Chris asked her to share her new song with us, and I have been in love with it ever since. I get so excited when I hear it come on the radio, and I turn it up louder. Beautiful song. Amazing heart!

I am thankful for four years of infertility. I know, that doesn't sound right at all does it?! I mean, so many tears, so much money on tests and procedures, so much bargaining with God…
But I am thankful for the new life-cherishing lenses that I now view all children with. Every pregnant woman that crosses my path is blessed with a prayer for her, for her child, for the miracle blessing God has given to her.
Gratefulness is the cure for heartache. There is a reason that Paul teaches us so much about choosing JOY in all circumstances:) Thankfulness is the bridge that shrinks the chasm between our heartache and God's readily powerfully available love for us. So, I am thankful for infertility because it constantly catapults me into my Abba Father's waiting, loving embrace. (psalm 34:17,18)
