I was given the privilege to listen and review a CD by Dan Bremnes.  When I was told I was accepted to this, I had never heard of him before.  I like music though.  So I knew as long as it wasn’t head banging, I could handle it!  Boy was I right!

Dan has always known he wanted to be a singer/songwriter.  At age 10 he started singing in his church.  That being said.  He loved opportunities that he received to lead worship and follow his faith.

After a 6 month mission trip with YWAM he knew exactly what his calling was.

In doing so, he has toured all over New Zealand and Australia racking up many accolades and #1s.  Being from Canada, he also knew he had to take a leap of faith, move his family to Nashville where the music industry revolves and with the release of his song “Beautiful”

he steps into a whole new world.  When Dan wrote the song, he based it on 2 Corinthians 5:17 –  Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.[b] The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

Beautiful is part of the CD Where The Light Is.  As I started listening to the cd from the beginning.  I knew this was going to be someone who I WANTED to listen to.  A LOT!  The songs have meaning, passion.  They tell a story.  From the very first words of Where The Light Is –

This is me / Grew up in church / Raised on the gospel trained in the word / Had a faith so fearless thought it was all I needed / But life hit me hard / More than I planned / It knocked me down / Like an avalanche / On the edge of hopeless I called you from the darkness // God, come quickly / Only You can save me / Will You lead me where the light is /

How many of us ask that same question on a daily basis when we face trials and tragedy like Dan was when a car accident killed his mom.  We fall on our knees, asking God please come quickly.

Dan’s songs on this CD lead me through so many emotions and words reaffirm my faith, like “He knows every pain every tear you’ve cried / Every single part of you / He knows every doubt, every fear that you fight / The battles you’ve been going through / And when it feels like you’re holding the world on your shoulders / Just let go and trust Him, ‘cause He knows /

How much more affirmation do you need in your faith in God?  To hear this with the music that is sometimes slow, sometimes really upbeat.  But always beautiful!  These words spoke to me so much and I knew I had to share this CD with my best friend.

She is deploying this Saturday for a year.  She’s my hero.  However she is leaving 4 beautiful babies home and while this is her 4th deployment and she knows this is her career.  It’s never easy for a soldier on deployment.  So being able to give her music to carry with her, that will give her any boost in her spirits or help her keep her faith during a term of being surrounded by war and strife.  Thank you Lord for blessing me with this CD at just the right time.  She’s my hero and I pray so much for her and her family.  While her life isn’t walking parallel to Dan’s when he wrote this song, everyone’s struggles are different.

Putting lyrics to paper like he has for this CD is a God thing and being able to be introduced to someone who can sing with talent that lets you feel their heart, is a blessing that comes so few and far between.
