Lauren Daigle is a christian contemporary singer/ songwriter from Louisiana. She has been nominated for Grammy's for her songs "How Can It Be" and "Trust In You". Daigle's most current single, "You Say", was released July 13th of this year. The song is a very uplifting ballad talking about how we should believe what God says about us, not what this world says about us. God says we are loved and that we are His creation. When asked about the writing of the song Daigle responded with the following "It was the first time we had written since How Can It Be...I just remember feeling like so much had happened the night before, wondering How do I come back down to normal, how do I come back down to reality? And I started realizing these patterns of really high highs and then, okay now there's a low...And involving expectation in that space can just leave you kind of questioning your identity-Where do I fit in, where is my security, where is my footing?" After reading that quote from her, I started thinking about something that I had learned at church camp about a week and a half ago. We were talking about how in this world we tend to find our identity in objects, people, things of this world...but we really should be finding our identity in Christ. When Lauren said something about questioning her identity and applying that to her new song, I was awestruck at how God works. He had that lesson stick out to me at Falls Creek and then I get home and there's a song talking about the same thing. We really do have an amazing God. For that reason, this song is a really good reminder for me to always find my identity in Christ and not in this world. Daigle also said "...and thus brought up the issue of identity and trying to figure out how to exist when I felt like so many things were pulling me in different directions. I think a lot of times we build these complexes based on insecurity, based on fear, based on rejection, and lies that we have to constantly overcome. And so this song for me was just a reminder of identity. It was a reminder that I know when I'm weak, He's strong." That right there is an incredible reminder for me and I am so glad that is how she described the song, it was something I could really relate to. Go check out the song and be on the lookout for her new album "Look Up Child."
