THE LIGHTS BLOG
This song was an accident, like many wonderful things in life. We unearthed “The Lights” during a break from recording our new album in Franklin TN this summer. Gabe had gone out for a day of study at the local bean bar and I had stayed back to mess with some synth sounds. I started messing with a patch and out came some melodies overtop of what I was playing.
By the time Gabe had come back I had worked out a sketch of the song melodically; he almost instantly had some lyric ideas and out came “The Lights”.
"The Lights" is accidental because we had enough songs to record; it was also accidental because it turned out to be one of our favorites on this record.
Isn’t worship like that? Some of the greatest moments of experiencing God’s presence are what look like an accident or unplanned, when in actuality it is God just being good and drawing near to us.
I’ve learned to anticipate life in between the structure because God works in both just as wonderfully. And I love that even when I’m not actively pursuing Him, He never stops actively pursuing us.
I hope this song accidentally thrusts you into the living hope of Jesus Christ today.
