Here is a little background to the making of the album. This is Phil's 7th album. He was struggling to write the album. It became a job instead of a passion. Then he found out he had a vocal polyp. He faced surgery and the possibility of never being able to sing again.
He said, "I remember a few days after the diagnosis, I was on my knees asking God for some peace and clarity and a sense of Him in it all. All of a sudden I had a sense of God's presence there with me. There have only been a few times in my life where I felt, undeniably, His voice speaking to me. This was one of them. I felt undeniably, His voice speaking to me. He said my identity is not in what I do, but in who He says I am. He said, 'I'm your father. You're my child. Trust me."
He still had damaged vocal cords and an uncertain future, but God had take away his fear.
Phil was given freedom and a new passion. He wrote songs out of the "reawakening of his heart" I think you can really hear his passion for God in this album.
It is hard to pick a favorite song on this album, but I think mine is "As it is in Heaven"
"I lift my hands and say that I need you
I lift my heart and say that I love you
I give my life, Lord, I am forever yours
Let your will be done in me
Let your kingdom come in me
In my life, Lord, let it be as it is in heaven"
