Finding Freedom

"How can it be?"

“You break my chains. You overcome. You gave your life to give me mine.”

This song exalts the gift given by the Creator to every human being: freedom. Lauren Daigle reminds us with her soulful that that apart from God there is only slavery. “You gave your life to give me mine. You say that I am free,” the song says.

And how can we experience the fullness of this freedom that was freely offered by God? By breaking free from sin. Freedom is a gift, but it is also choice, and a task. To reach it, the first step is to choose to recognize that which is within us, as St. Augustine says, it is the only thing capable of making us free. The second thing is to realize that the pleasures of the world will never fill us. Freedom is true, and where there is not truth, there is not freedom.

Curiosity: Lauren Daigle has a passion to see lives changed and knows that music is a powerful vehicle. “I hope that as these songs hit peoples’ ears, they don’t hear my voice, they don’t hear really good production, so they can say, ‘Whoa Lord, I’m encountering YOU right now,’” says Daigle.
