Cody Carnes’ new album is bold, fresh, relevant, and powerful. His creativity shines through synth-pop songs that cross the boundaries of modern worship music. The artistic melodies and powerful lyrics backed by a web of different sounds makes this album different and yet still full of truth and the Spirit of God.

 “This I know

the cross is my unfailing hope

For grace and mercy tell me so

I’m near to your heart”

 His single “Through and Through” describes the presence of God that we encounter when we become saved by grace. It reminds us that because of how God good is, and because of His grace and mercy, nothing can separate us from Him. Not even death can tear us apart from His love. The cross was the ultimate payment for our hearts and because of that sacrifice we can step completely into the presence of a holy God.

 “I can see the scars that saved my soul

I’m safe in Your arms, You won’t let go

Death can’t tear us apart”

  “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” Romans 8:38-39

“Through and Through” captures the heart behind our faith. It captures the closeness we all experience with God as we continue to grow with Him and pursue Him. God has given us freedom, He has broken down every wall and every barrier that kept us from Him so we can experience His love for us in it’s fullness.

Enjoy!

New Album from Cody Carnes

September 15, 2017

Cody Carnes has officially released his first solo debut album “The Darker The Night / The Brighter The Morning” and we couldn’t be more excited. Cody is Capitol CMG’s most recent artist and has already seen success from singles like “The Cross Has The Final Word,” “Hold It All,” “Til The End of Time (feat. Kari Jobe),” and “What Freedom Feels Like.” 

Carnes is already a recognizable worship leader and songwriter, well known for co-writting numerous songs with his wife, Kari Jobe Carnes, including “Closer To Your Heart,” “The Garden”, “Lover Of My Soul”, and any more. This solo album has created much excitement amongst listeners.

Cody took some time to talk with GMA about his passion behind this album:

“With my debut, I wanted to create an artistic record that was not only music I enjoy and love and that I would be passionate about, but it would also connect people to the presence of God. This album’s message is about declaring the hope of Jesus into a hopeless situation. Jesus put death and darkness in its place on the cross.”

Below you’ll find song resources including free charts and New Song Cafés. Enjoy!

In May 2017 Urban Rescue took some time off the road to fall back in love with their sound and their calling to bring revival to the city. The idea came together that their city of LA would be the perfect place to play some old and new songs that have meant a lot to them this year.

These seven songs were recorded over two days at the Swing House Studios in Los Angeles, California. Urban Rescue played fan favorites “Never Stop” and “Up From The Ashes” as well as five never heard before tunes. They even brought some friends in, like Derek Minor, to help bring these raw songs life. Every friend they brought into this process was intentional, working in “the round” gave each instrument and voice a new sound.

City Sessions - Live from Los Angeles will be band’s first live audio/visual recording. This special project, directed by Tyler Rumph and produced by Justin Cowan, is a beautiful but vulnerable new approach of bringing people into worship as a process instead of an outcome. 

This will be Urban Rescue’s third album and second to be released independently. The band wanted to work in real time and within the limitations of live recordings to let the songs truly lead. All of these songs are in process or maybe even still ideas that haven’t been fully developed but that’s the truth they wanted to give their listeners.

With the anthem like tune “Freedom” to the heart wrenching ballad “Unconditional”,
Jordan Frye says “Our desire from the start of this project was to record a live audio-
visual experience that spiritually decompressed the frantic soul, challenges
the way we think about faith, and help bring a more personal encounter to Jesus Himself.”

The highly anticipated new album from Jesus Culture is finally here! We are so excited to share these powerful new worship songs with you. This album is truly Spirit filled. Chris Quilala describes the drive behind Love Has A Name in this interview with GMA:

“Every day we are faced with negativity in media and in the world,” shares worship leader Chris Quilala. “It’s so important for us, the church, to be a light in the darkness and a beacon of hope and joy. Love Has a Name is all about declaring who God is. It’s a strong proclamation of His name, the Name above every other name.”

We hope this new album breathes fresh life into your congregations. We hope it inspires unity in the body of Christ as we all fervently seek the presence of God!

“Take all I have in these hands

And multiple, God, all that I am

And find my heart on the altar again

Set me on fire, set me on fire"

 

We were never created to carry the weight of our own lives. We were never created to discover our purpose within our own strength. We were created as creatures of worship, a vessel that the Spirit of God moves through. Everything we do should be given to God has an act of worship. He gives us a purpose and a calling that will bring glory to His name and because He loves us, He has all of our days planned for us, we just have to rest in Him and listen to His word.

Sometimes we lose that idea, we get so caught up in life and impatient with God that we start to find our own answers to everything.  We do some “soul-searching” to find out what our purpose is instead of searching for answers in the Spirit. We create our own plans and attempt at juggling life on our own but, as many of us know, that can quickly lead to failure. Our strength alone just can’t carry us.

 But, there is good news..

 God is a loving god. He is gentle to correct and mentor those who love Him. Life breaks us down, we get weak as we carry ourselves day to day, but God is willing to lift us up and bring us rest. He wants us to reside in His strength, to surrender to His thoughts, and in Him our broken hearts will be made whole. God doesn’t ignore you in your brokenness, He desires you.

 

“Your power at work in me

I’m broken gracefully

I’m strong when I am weak

I will be free”

 

We are broken by grace. Grace doesn’t allow us to control our own lives. Grace doesn’t allow us to be without God. Grace is needing God in every aspect of your life. If we had control of everything we’d surely ruin it, but God takes it over and makes absolutely beautiful things. He opens doors we could have never opened, He creates moments that if we didn’t have the Holy Spirit we would miss, and He is intentional about our every day. We just have to be intentional with Him in return to see what He wants us to see. God takes what we would have done with our lives and MULTIPLIES it.

 So, here are some prayer thoughts for today:

- Give God glory for how far He’s brought you, for all of the gifts He’s given you, and for never failing you. Thank Him for weaving a plan for you, a plan that will bring you joy and bless you.

-Ask God to show you things in your life that you are maintaining too much control over. Whether it be your finances, your career, your team, ect.

-Take those things and surrender them to the Lord, allow Him to move in every area of your life. Seek the Holy Spirit, ask Him to fill your heart and to guide your steps.
