Album Inspires Worship, Even In The Midst Of Heartbreak, Fear, Loss
Internationally known for worship anthems like “Death Was Arrested,” “Abundantly More” and “Love Come Down,” North Point Worship releases Find A Reason today (Sept. 10) from North Point Music® and Centricity Music. The LP is available now at digital and streaming outlets internationally through the link, NorthPointWorship.lnk.to/FindAReason.
The new music from North Point Worship, part of North Point Ministries‘ global network of more than 90 partner churches, stems from songs organically sown in the local church and written, recorded and led by the group’s team of songwriters and musicians. The eight-song Find A Reason includes the never-before-released title track featuring worship leader Brett Stanfill.
“‘Find A Reason’ was written a few months ago when a global pandemic was breaking out,” shares Stanfill, “and we had also just received word of a few different tragedies that had occurred in our local community. In that time, and in so many times throughout my life, I had to remember that regardless of bleak circumstances, heartbreak, fear or loss, God is still good, and He is still worthy of my praise. This song is reminder that whether I’m experiencing the favor of God or it seems like all hope is lost, I can lift my eyes and find a reason to worship.”
Also featured on the recording is the single and video released last month, “Praise Your Name,” which features Desi Raines and was written by Brett Younker (Passion) and Heath Balltzglier. “In every season, in good times and bad times, the healthiest thing we can do for our minds and souls is turn our attention to Jesus!” exclaims Balltzglier. “Remember His goodness, His supernatural involvement in our lives even in the middle of the mundane, joy and pain. Every moment is a good moment to say, ‘Thank you!’ I hope you can find a still moment and use this song in your life as a way to say and to express gratitude to our Savior.”
Find A Reason further includes the Stanfill-led “Sons And Daughters, the Gospel infused tracks “Hallelujah (Why We Sing) (Feat. Clay Finnesand)” and “O What A Miracle (Feat. Seth Condrey),” and the song “Light Breaking Through (Feat. Lauren Lee),” which was born in the midst of Lee’s struggle with postpartum depression. Lee also leads “Just Getting Started” while Balltzglier and Raines together lead the declarative worship track “Nothing Else Matters” on the new LP.
