Natalieâ€™s Song Choice of the week December 11 2021
â€œThe Journeyâ€ â€“ The Steeleâ€™s
The Steeles have been a force in Southern Gospel music for decades, but never has it been more true than now. In 2020 they released their most recent album, â€œA Song to Remind Youâ€, which is no doubt the Steeleâ€™s most impressive project to date. My favorite song on the album is called â€œThe Journeyâ€. It has not been a single so far and may never be, but nonetheless it so my favorite.
I asked Jeff Steele where they got the song. â€œActually, it is a collaboration with Brad, myself, and award winning songwriter Joel Lindsey. We went to Word and wrote a day with Joel. It is a song that tells it just like Brad wanted it told. Iâ€™m thankful for the journey; I wouldnâ€™t be where I am without it. But the importance part is not to get stuck there because there is more to come. Godâ€™s best is ALWAYS in the future, never in the past. The best is yet to come and THAT is the message of God for us no matter how God uses our past to get us to where we are nowâ€. â€“ Jeff Steele
I personally connected with the song the first time I heard it. I love songs I can relate to and â€œThe Journeyâ€ just seems to be my current status. The road I have walked has not provided many hiding places. The highs have been high. The lows have been low. But even the lows arenâ€™t bad memories. Theyâ€™re valuable memories because they cost a great price. They are treasures I am building the rest of my life upon. â€œIâ€™m thankful for the journey, the journey got me here. The roads at once that didnâ€™t make sense, now seem crystal clear. I know that faith is greater than doubt and love greater than fear. Iâ€™m thankful for the journey, the journey got me here.â€ â€“ â€œThe Journeyâ€
