    Lindsay McCaul’s New Album “One More Step”

    Girls, I love being a writer/blogger—it’s so much fun! Those of you who are writers will understand that I love this job simply because I get to write for a living. It’s been my dream to be a writer since I was eight years old.

    The opportunity that God has given me to write professionally is more than I could have dreamed, but there’s an extra little perk that I get to enjoy. Every so often, publicists will send me early release albums, books, samples and other cool stuff that I can use and then review for you!

    Seriously, I thank God for my jobs (writer and youth pastor) every day because I can’t imagine any other jobs that I could enjoy more.

    Recently I received a copy of Lindsay McCaul’s new album, One More Step. This is her second album, and her first with Centricity Music (Aaron Shust, Jason Gray, Unspoken and others).

    According to the publicist for Centricity Music, the songs on One More Step came from a very difficult time in Lindsay’s life:

    “After losing her father to myelofibrosis, losing her record deal, losing her brother-in-law unexpectedly, and losing her roots and community as she moved from Chicago to Nashville, Lindsay found herself in a difficult and unsettling season of life that had no quick or easy fix.”

    Girls, there wasn’t one song on this album that didn’t bless me. I know that the fall season can mean a lot of transitions with friends, new schools, etc. Life in general is full of transitions, seasons when we gain and seasons when we lose. One More Step is all about holding on to and drawing close to God during the hardest times in life when trust is hardest and loneliness feels like a constant companion.

    Like those of us who write for Project Inspired, Lindsay understands the songs that connect the most with her listeners are those that come from her own personal experiences. Currently, “Empty Handed” stands as the most often heard song from the album, but my favorite is definitely “With the Brokenhearted,” a duet performed by Lindsay McCaul and Brandon Heath, based on Psalm 34 (my favorite Psalm).

    Here are some lyrics from the last chorus in “With the Brokenhearted”:

     

    Even when His favor feels the farthest
    Even when believing is the hardest
    I know God is always with the brokenhearted

     

    One More Step was released on August 19 and it’s available on iTunes, Spotify, online and in stores. I encourage all of you to check out this album, and I pray that it blesses you like it has blessed me.

     

    I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak His praises. (Psalm 34:1)

     

    Girls, if you’ve already heard One More Step, what’s your favorite song?
