Christy Nockels’, “Let It Be Jesus” Review & Giveway

Life can get hard some times. In those moments when you think you’d run right into God’s presence and saturate yourself in His Word, it’s not always that easy. For me, when life gets hard, I turn up my worship music loud and allow the truth of His Word to saturate every fiber of my being. When hope seems lost, or when I lose my way, Worship draws me straight into His presence and into His loving arms. There, I am reminded that He is with me in the hard places.

I cannot tell you how excited I was for the opportunity to review Christy Nockels newest release, “Let There Be Jesus”.

About Christy

As a worship leader for many years, she has been an integral part of Passion Conferences from its inception in 1997. She’s seen first had music sweep people into the presence of God in a powerful way. A pastor’s kid, who was born in Fort Worth and raised in Oklahoma, she grew up singing in church. She met her husband, Nathan, in 1993 at the Christian Artists Seminar in Estes Park, CO. They recorded an independent record with fellow worship leader Charlie Hall under the names Sons & Daughters that led to an invitation from Louie Giglio to participate in the first Passion conference in Austin. Christy’s voice gained a national platform when she and Nathan formed the duo Watermark, recording four acclaimed albums before that musical season ended, paving the way for Christy’s solo career.  In 2008, the couple moved to Atlanta to become part of Passion City Church where she serves on the worship team with Six Steps Records label mates Chris Tomlin and Kristian Stanfill. The following year, Nockels released her acclaimed solo debut, Life Light Up and spent much of the next two years touring with Tomlin and Passion.

My Thoughts

Can I just tell you….this album brought me straight into His presence. I put it on after a hard day. And I’ve had so many of those lately. And immediately I felt the presence of the Lord, just like I did when I saw Christy in person, along with her husband, when they ministered under the name Watermark. I was immediately reminded that Jesus is right here, in the middle of my mess. This album is based on the truth of scripture and, not only is Christy’s voice beautiful, but the underlying musical tones, both catchy and moving, are equally as anointed.

    Currently I like King and Country.. their song “Shoulders” is amazing. But I love almost all Christian artists, they all bring glory to God’s name and it’s hard to chose just one.

    Jeremy Camp has always been one of my favorites. I absolutely love his voice. His music is filled with emotion and really speaks to the journey we all walk with God, through the good times and the bad, the times when we are steadfast to God and the times we are fallen away or returning to His presence. Or maybe I get all that because I know Jeremy’s story. 😉

    A few years ago I wasn’t into Christian music, but I started listening exclusively to K Love in the car because I wanted my daughter to have the influence. Worship music has really become an integral part of our day now, and like you said, sometimes music brings you into His presence when other things can’t.

    Even though they are a group I enjoy the clarity of message in their songs. My favorite since their first song, Sidewalk Prophets.

    Oh my! I love Christy, her music and her true presence in Jesus when singing. My sons both attended many Passion conferences throughout college and they were the ones that first introduced me to her music. What a blessing to be able to review her new album. Have a great day, friend!
