I had the privilege of attending Casey Darnell’s concert last Thursday night. Casey has been a worship leader at our church for many years and is one of my favorites. (Shhhh… don’t tell the other guys.) At his concert, he introduced us to all the songs on his new CD, Coming Alive. It was an amazing night, and I enjoyed every minute.
This CD is an amazing mix of worship music. There are songs like “When the Waters Rise” that reach your very soul and remind you that God is with you ALWAYS, even when you feel like you’re drowning. This is actually one of the Princess’s favorite songs. She listens to it every night before she goes to bed. It was one of my Katie’s favorite songs, and Casey was kind enough to sing it at her memorial service. This song speaks to me in so many ways and hearing Casey tell us the back story on Thursday confirmed that he too knows what it feels like to be overwhelmed with grief and clinging hard to our Father’s love.
Then, there are songs like the title song, Coming Alive, that just make you smile and want to jump for Jesus. It’s a song you can’t help but belt out as you drive through town. It makes your heart happy to celebrate that Jesus is indeed alive.
Coming Alive is available on iTunes today. I suggest you go get it. Now!
If you want a hard copy…I always like a hard copy, you can win one here at the House of Hills. Yep, I love it so much I’m giving a copy away.

Disclaimer: Opinions of Coming Alive are all my own. I was honored to get to serve at his concert and was provided with a CD to give away. I would have bought one to give away though. Love it that much.
I can’t make up my mind! The three that struck me were “When Waters Rise”, “Power in Your Name”, and “Only Our God”. I’d have to listen to the whole thing to find out 🙂
I like “Awakening” and “Faithful Over US” the best so far. I wish I could have gone to the concert, I heard it was great!
Faithful Over Us and Every Perfect Gift but i love them all.
I really enjoy all of it, but When Waters Rise and Only Our God are early standouts!
