Giveaway Thursday: New Selah CD

by jessicaturner on August 27, 2009

This week the latest Selah album, You Deliver Me, released. It is especially dear to me because since their last release, I have really gotten to know the members of the group. The lead male vocalist, Todd, is Angie’s hubs and Elias’s godfather. (I won’t mention that he is a Michigan fan, which is not really acceptable to a Badger like myself.) Amy is one of the sweetest people and most talented vocalists I have ever heard. And Allan has such a kind soul… When the three of them make music it reminds me of what heaven will be like.

You can listen to samples of the album here. The music is incredibly inspirational and will give you goosebumps the whole way through. The title track is especially amazing. God has really given them an awesome gift.

This album includes the song I Will Carry You, which was written by Todd, Angie and their friend Melanie (I think) while Angie was pregnant with Audrey. The song makes me cry every time I listen to it.

I have five copies to give away today!

To win, leave a comment on how music ministers to you.

Love Selah, they came to our tiny little town in southern IN about 6 years ago and I have followed them ever since. We listen in our car, my sons' favorite songs are from their 1st CD and are Africian inspired! Would love a copy of the new CD!

I've just become "aware" of Selah and would love to win the CD. Music ministers to me when I am cooking. I love to turn it up and sing along while making a meal for my family!

I would love a copy of the new CD! Music ministers to me in that it reminds me that no matter how bad I feel or upset I am, there's always someone out there who can relate. There's always a lyric I can find to describe how I'm feeling, and listening to my favorite bands always makes me feel better.

Music ministers to me in that it provides a background for life. I pretty much always have it on, regardless of what I'm doing, and now I get to see my almost-1-year-old daughter react/interact with music. :-)

I remember listening to Selah music in college – I would blast the music through my house and just sing along while I was doing dishes, laundry, etc. It was so soothing and a great reminder that I serve a God who knows the plans He has for me…and will NEVER leave me or forsake me.

How does music not minister to me? If you listen to the words, I mean really listen, they are often better than any sermon. Like a little sermon in themselves. They can set the tone for the entire day.

Oh my goodness, music speaks to me in sooo many different ways! I love stirring intsrumentals…I can literally come to tears with some music, like when I listen to the sountrack for Prince Caspian. It might sound silly, but it just brings up so many emotions!

I love Selah. The only album I have is the Greatest Hymns, but I love it. I even have the songbook, because the piano is amazing!

Been waiting for this CD (seems like) forever! Haven't gotten it yet. Will probably have to wait for a trip to the city – never have much luck finding Anything! in this small town. (And this displaced city girl can't get used to that!) I love all kinds of music. Rhythm and melodies minister calm and order to my brain in some way, and you add the God-inspired factor to music and it just ramps it up a whole bunch of notches – it soothes the soul.

My story of how Selah has touched me is kinda long – I'll try to keep it concise. I was almost 37 weeks along in my first pregnancy when, one night, I couldn't feel the baby moving. We went to the birth center and after trying to find a heartbeat via doppler, an ancient ultrasound machine & finally a newer one we were told the baby had died. So they started to induce labor. It took the better part of two days but just as I was getting ready to push I was ministered to by Selah. We were listening to the song "All My Praise" and the line, "You knew my name before there was time and all this is just part of your glorious design – Halleujah" struck me and I was filled with the peace that passes understanding & the strength to do the impossible and give birth to my first baby. My baby who I knew was already with the Lord. But God knew, BEFORE TIME, that that was His plan for our Allen Michael. I am so thankful to God for using Selah to speak to my heart during the single hardest thing in my life so far.

Reply

Danielle August 27, 2009 at 2:05 pm

Selah's song Carry you really helped me thorough the loss of my sweet baby boy. The smith story somehow gave me strength to continue living my life after I said goodbye to my sweet Wyatt just two minutes after he was born. We too, knew our son was "incompatible" with life at our 18 week ultrasound but waited in love to meet him.

When I listen to Carry you, there is a part where it goes "I've shown him photographs of time beginning, walked him through the parted seas…" It's comforting to think God has shown my son more beauty than I could ever imagine.

I would love a copy of their CD, as Selah, their new song, and their family have a special place in my heart.

Oh I would so love to have this CD. I want it so badly. I have been reading about it on a few blogs lately and have been playing the song unredeemed over and over off of you tube. Music has been my saving grace in life. Especially the last two months of my life. When I read on a blog about Selah and the song unredeemed I hit play and tears began to stream down my face. You see my husband and I have been facing this most difficult time in our marriage. I stepped out of our marriage and we are trying to heal and grow together with God. The nights have been sleepless and all other forms of media have been torturous with glorifying affairs. Christian music has been my saving grace to get me through long nights. To inspire me and encourage me to know that God still loves me even in all of my sin, he redeems me. I would love to purchase the CD but unfortunately paying for the counseling we desperately need has eaten up all of our income, so things like this are not in our budget now.
My three girls have grown to love the music in our house. It is nice to not have the tv on and we find ourselves singing together. It is healing for me to share that with my girls. Thank you for giving such a special gift to others.

The very first concert I went to after I became a Christian was Selah. I was struck by how the left the concert — the lights went out, they left the stage, and we were all still praising God. Their music from that point onwards has always pointed me towards God and I'm so thankful for that. I'd love their new CD.

I listen to praise/worship music such as Selah every day…don't know what I would do w/out it. Music has played a key part in helping me endure a very painful divorce and keeping me focused on a wonderful God & Savior.

Wow, how does music not minister to me?! It is what lifts me up throughout the day. I listen to my local Christian radio station and the songs remind me of God's love and promises and his words of guidance. :) I know that is what Selah's new CD will do as well.

Thanks for the chance to win this album! Selah's music ministered to me (and my mom) while sitting at her hospital bed during the last week of her life. She died this past spring at 57 yrs. old. We were so blessed and encouraged by God's promises, and I will always associate much of their music with this precious time I was given to spend with her at the end.

I was reading a book about how music just is a way we can connect with other people and not be so lonesome. We go to concerts and there isn't that tension you feel day to day, you feel like you are a part of something bigger you can see the bigger picture of how God meant for us to get along and be together. I love music and Selahs new cd!

I always said that if I hadn't gone into medicine, I'd have pursued music therapy. The orchestration of melody and harmony has a way of ministering to the spirit in ways that words can't truly touch; and I love Selah's musical style. I'm so excited about the new album!

I am really wanting this CD, b/c we also said hello and goodbye to our son in February 2008. The song "I will carry you," helped me to heal in ways that I can't describe. Selah's music speaks in large measure the love of our Father. Crossing my fingers for a copy. I can't wait until the "boy" version is released as well!

Music is probably my best expression of my love for God. When I sing those songs, I am overcome truly by the goodness of God, and the majesty and glory HE is. I'm a worship leader at my church, and to be leading others into a place of worship is one of the most profound things that I have ever done.

Since then, music has ministered to my soul in ways I never thought possible. Going thru a rough patch right now and Matthew West's song "Motions" is what is keeping me going. Thanks for your gernerosity.

We purchased a Selah set a few months ago and had my parents bring it down to Chile, where we serve as missionaries. I love to tell people that these are missionary kids making great music! The music ministers to my husband and me in our heart language and our kids particularly love the African songs. One of our children is of African (Sudanese) heritage so it always brings a smile to our face to see him jamming to those particular songs!

I love when I can hear my girls singing the songs and getting the words almost right!! It really makes me realize they really do learn from me and how I live my life. I find so much comfort in Christian song lyrics that really can't be found in "regular" music that is just for entertainment.

I started listening to Selah a little over a year ago when I started following Angie's blog about 2 weeks before she had sweet Audrey.

Music ministers to me, and especially their new song "I Will Carry You" because I lost a son to stillbirth on March 18, 2005. I think of him every time I hear that song–and what God has done through and with me since that day.

I am not sure I can even explain how important music is in my life. It sort of feels like there have been music that has defined every season on my life. The cool thing is that God always brings me to the right song at the right time. Whether it's a time of joy or sorrow, music is this healing balm that helps to work through whatever I am going through at the time. And to hear a song afterwards is like travelling back in time and remembering how my Saviour carries me.

Well, through life's ups and downs music truly helps me progress. When my mom died music helped me feel those emotions and heal me, when my babies were born, music helped me to push past the pain, music builds me up and helps me serve others, music fills my cup. I can't imagine life without music and even though I don't buy any music these days now that I have 3 kiddos and a mortgage, I still look for music on the computer to listen to as I take care of my daily chores. It helps it go by with a happy attitude. I hope I win. :)

I was introduced to Selah by a friend when Angie had the song Unredeemed posted on her blog. I was going thru a VERY rough time in my divorce & that song just touched my heart in such an amazing way & really made me remember to keep close & look to God thru the storms I encounter. Most all music touches me somehow & usually in a very drastic & emotional way. The song Unredeemed was no exception & I have been anxiously awaiting the release of the new CD so that I could continue to listen to that song, as well as the others on the CD, & be moved & ministered to thru their music.

I would love a copy of the new CD. I grew up in music and it has always played an important role in my life. Music makes me feel so free and allows me to worship and praise the Lord in a very special way. I can close my eyes and all my troubles vanish. At home after the kids are in bed I sit there in the quiet listen to my playlist on the computer and have my time with the Lord. My email address is eternofamily@yahoo.com

Music in general ministers to me the most. It energizes me, allows me to calm down and rest….Selah used to sing my kiddos to sleep. You Raise Me Up was their favorite song. Thanks for hosting this giveaway =)

Oh my…music ministers to me in ways that I can't even begin to explain! As a musician, music has always moved me, but Christian music gets to the core of me. I feel close to God when I'm listening to it…the words to the songs make me think…and often, when I'm reading the bible, I get a song in my head…and it lets me know the connection from the song to the bible!

Music ministers to me by helping me to lose myself in God's presence. All the cares of the world are out of my thoughts as I allow myself to get totally lost in Him . . . .

To me, music is how I come to grips with my emotions. If I am dealing with something deep, or if I am happily estatic about life, you can find me singing songs that match those events. Thus, music and singing for me is a major for of worship to the Lord who provided those circumstances. Selah as a group has become part of that worship for me, and I would love to have this new cd. Thanks for the giveaway!

Music totally ministers to me. When we were first starting to go to church it was the music that really helped get through to me. It has made such a difference in just calming me down and helping me to be able to see gods work.

Music ministers to me…all the time. In the car. Teaching music. Washing the dishes. When I am crying out to God…in every hosanna moment (such a great word to say help and praise You in the same breath!). I am on the worship team for my church and blog with links to songs all the time…because I just can't help but relate a song to every situation:)

I have always loved music. Christian music brings prayer to an emotional level for me that speaking doesn't. I imagine my prayer being carried up to God on the music. I would love to win this cd to listen to while I give birth to my 5th child. A very prayerful time indeed!

Music ministers to my soul. It soothes and heals when there is grief and raw emotion. It can wrap me in a cocoon of praise or send me dancing with joy. Music can evoke memories for me, and it can create laughter or tears. A love of music was one of the values I chose to pass along to my children.

Music is what the Lord used to lead me to him. I grew up abused and it was the only talent that I had. AND it was something my abusive parents couldn't take away from me. Later that's the very avenue God used w/ Amy Grant and Stephen Curtis Chapman music. Music will always be special to me. It's God's song to me.
