Review & Giveaway: Higher Vision – For Your Kingdom Worship Album

I received this product in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. All opinions expressed are those of my own.

I love music… Especially worship music. I seem to not be able to do anything without it playing in the background. It just brings motivation and encouragement to everything I do. Knowing this, I jumped at the opportunity to review the new debut album from Higher Vision, For Your Kingdom.

Higher Vision Church is located here in Southern California and is quickly growing, averaging about 3,000 attendees each week from all walks of life. Their worship team sings some of their own original songs, and now has released an album.

With a sound that some would find similar to Hillsong Young and Free or Elevation Worship but is also unique to its own style, this album does not disappoint. Each track seems to have a reference to scripture and doctrinal truths, leaving no room for fluff. A perfect mix of upbeat songs that would be perfect on your workout playlist and slower ballads that will help usher you right into the Throne room during your personal prayer time… or, if you’re like me, great to listen to as you drive, do housework, or sew and craft.

Among the songs on this album, I have to say that my favorites were Trust In You (which anyone going through a trial would appreciate!), We Cry Holy, and Broken The Chains. Worship leaders in modern churches looking for new music to add to their set lists would enjoy this album as well.

Songs on the album include:

  1. [continuum]
  2. Higher
  3. Freedom of Your Love
  4. Worthy is the Lamb
  5. Trust in You
  6. He is Here
  7. We Cry Holy
  8. For Your Kingdom
  9. Hands Held High
  10. Hallelujah
  11. Near to the Broken
  12. Broken the Chains

His Favorite Song

In the past few weeks, my 8 month old daughter has decided she is determined to say “Daddy”. Not Da Da or Dad. Daddy. She yells it, whispers it, babbles it, and most of all… sings it.

During the same time, I’ve been singing a lot. For a few days I felt spiritually dry and I felt that was the only way I could get past it. I began to wonder, “Does he hear me? Is it enough?”

Later that afternoon my sweet husband, a wonderful father, walked in the room and said to our sweet baby, “Oh sweetheart! That’s my favorite song! Sing it some more! I love it when you sing that song.” Instantly I felt God speak to my heart. That is exactly how he feels when we sing! He’s so proud, happy, and blessed by our worship! While we may think we’re just babbling out lyrics and no one hears them, He does. And He LOVES it!

How often we forget it’s about Him and blessing Him. Not what it does for us.

Ever since that day, I’ve had a song on my heart that I’ve been singing repeatedly. I feel I should share it, because it sums up what I’m trying to get across perfectly. Enjoy!

When I Hear The Praises Start
Keith Green

My son, My son, why are you striving
You can’t add one thing to what’s been done for you
I did it all while I was dying
Rest in your faith, my peace will come to you

For when I hear the praises start
I want to rain upon you
Blessings that will fill your heart
I see no stain upon you
Because you are my child and you know me
To Me you’re only holy
Nothing that you’ve done remains
Only what you do for Me

My child, My child, why are you weeping
You will not have to wait forever
That day and that hour is in My keeping
The day I’ll bring you into Heaven

For when I hear the praises start
My child, I want to rain upon you
Blessing that will fill your heart
I see no stain upon you
Because you are My child and you know me
To me you’re only holy
Nothing that you’ve done remains
Only what you do in Me

My precious bride, the day is nearing
When I’ll take you in My arms and hold you
I know there are so many things that you’ve been hearing
But you just hold on to what I have told you

For when I hear the praises start
My bride, I want to rain upon you
Blessings that will fill your heart
I see no stain upon you
Because you are My child, and you know Me
To me you’re only holy
Nothing that you’ve done will remain
Only what you do for me

Sticky Hands: DANCE PARTY!!!

Taking your children to a disco is NOT endorsed by Raising Sticky Hands To Heaven

Here we are again, it’s Thursday already!!! Yikes!

Have you had a hard time finding time for prayer, praise, and worship this week? I know I have. So I pulled an old trick out of my sleeve. “Dance Party”.

This is really difficult, so place close attention:

  1. Turn on fast, upbeat, fun Christian music.
  2. Gather the kids.
  3. Tell the kids to dance fast. Dance with them. Make it fun, be silly!
  4. While it’s going, sing along, pray, praise, & worship our Creator.

Wait, that’s not at all difficult, is it?

The best part is the list of benefits. Exercise for all, prayer time, you set an example, everyone has fun, and the kids get all their wigglies out. In fact, your littles may nap right after if you keep it up long enough!

If you’re family is large enough, you could start practicing to do a Christian flash mob. (Totally kidding… but hey, it’d be fun!)

Keep doin’ the good work, Moms. Keep praying as you go, raising those sticky hands as often as you can. Store up your treasures in Heaven, and in still the importance of God in your children’s hearts.

Disclaimer: Don’t have a dance party right after lunch. If you do, next thing you know you might be having a puke party. Just sayin’…
