#OutOfTheDark #FlyBy
I recently heard about the new Mandisa album coming out called Out of the Dark and was really excited to get to preview it. I have always loved her music and hearing the story behind these songs made it that much better. All of mandisaus think that things are supposed to go a certain way. Prayers should be answered in the fashion that we ask them, friends shouldn’t suffer, etc. We all know that God has a plan for everything. We can pray for healing, or forgiveness, but I’ve learned over the years to focus on praying for God’s will to be done. Whatever He has planned, is more likely to be important, versus what I would have thought. Don’t you think?

Being able to listen to the music, lets us all know that God’s perfect and divine plan will one day make sense to all of us. Things we question now, and wonder why, will be so clear when we arrive in heaven. Being able to go beyond the questions and sometimes guilt, just like Mandisa did in this new album, let’s Gods’ plan be known by many – as long as they will listen.

My favorite song was “I’m Still Here.”  It had a great melody and the words really spoke to my heart.  Having someone who has risen to fame, then had a detour that God had to help them get back on track spoke volumes.  Her honesty and her validation of opening up again to what God has planned for her life, I think, can touch many.  None of us are perfect and that’s what makes the grace of God mean so much!!

About the Album:

Mandisa wrote her song “Overcomer” in 2013 to encourage her close friend Kisha, who was battling breast cancer. Mandisa really believed and prayed that God was going to heal her, but when Kisha went to be with Jesus in 2014, Mandisa’s foundation was shaken in a way she never expected. She fell into a deep pit of depression for close to 3 years, shutting out her friends, family and the rest of the world. Mandisa believes if she had kept going down that road she was on, she would not be here today… but God stepped in and lifted her out of that pit by using her close friends to communicate their love for her and God’s love for her. This album is Mandisa’s way of letting her fans into her story – it’s called ‘Out Of The Dark’ because that is exactly where God lifted her out of!

I don’t listen to music much anymore so I am not surprised I have never heard of this artist before. This sounds like it might be an inspiration to many out there.

The majority of my life was my free will and I’ve ended in a place that is not so comfortable. I enjoy my life for the most part only by the grace of God. Her music sounds wonderful, although I have not personally heard it.
