From time to time, artists will change their name to appeal to a broader audience. Such is the case for Meredith Andrews whose birth name is Meredith Frances Sooter. I discovered Meredith on a compilation of up-and-coming female Christian artists. Although Meredith hasn’t gotten the notoriety like Mandisa who was also featured on this album, I was touched by today’s featured song Pieces.
The Lord is close to those who are of a broken heart and saves such as are crushed with sorrow for sin and are humbly and thoroughly penitent, Psalm 34:18.
The lyrics of Pieces speak to daily circumstances in life that wear people down. These trials often result in spiritual bruises and scars. If these wounds aren’t healed, you may walk through life trying to pick up all the broken pieces in your life. This is where God fits in who knows how to make your pieces fit back together. When you come to Jesus with your burdens, Matthew 11:28-30, God will bring rest to your soul.
