A song always means a little more to the people that have lived the words. This cover of ‘You Raise Me Up’ is also a personal testimony.
Before you get to hear the song, you get to hear the story the family has to share. It changes the way you listen to the song in a faith-strengthening way.
Joanna, one of the singers, tells us that when she was a little girl, she was on her “deathbed” in the ICU for chronic pneumonia. Her outlook was not a good one, according to the doctors.
She tells us that her parents didn’t let go of their faith, but trusted in The Lord even more, and staying focused on their prayers. Joanna’s family got to take her home and she grew up and she performs in this video.
It’s not difficult to hear the gratitude in the performance of the Blessed 7. Besides their appreciation for the song itself, you can tell that they haven’t forgotten what God has done for them when Joanna was two years old and in the ICU.
As you listen to this song, take a moment to reflect on how you’ve been raised up from moments of trial and weakness. Don’t forget to say “thank you” for the assistance and the things you’ve received along the way.
