Remind Who I Am

Back in 2007, I happened upon a new release from an artist named Jason Gray. I was looking for some fresh music, as well as for something that could inspire me as I wrote out my God story. The title for Jason’s debut release, All the Lovely Losers, had appeal to me as I considered my journey and experience with God’s grace, as did the other song titles on the album. So I took a chance on a $15 disc, and purchased it without even listening to the demo or previewing a song on iTunes.

That night, I was blown away by the depth, authenticity and musicality of the songs on the CD! As I write, I can’t even begin to describe how I connected with these songs, but they in turn gave me courage to write my story of brokenness and prepare to share it with others. Later, as I got to know Jason’s story, I invited him to come and share his story at an outreach event back at Lakeside Church in January 2008. It was a terrific evening and through that encounter, I was able to meet this incredible singer/songwriter whose music continues to reach to the depths of my soul and help connect me with my Savior in fresh and powerful ways.

Four years later, Jason is finally getting the recognition he deserves, and his recent release Remind Me Who I Am from the album, A Way to See in the Dark, has been consistently in the Top 10 of the iTunes and CCM charts these last several weeks. Since I have been posting on the theme of our identity in Christ this week, I wanted to share with you this powerful song that reminds us all of where our worth truly rests. I am thrilled for Jason and hope you will take a listen to his music as well as enjoy it as much as I do.
