Descrizione

In the spring of 2011 acclaimed worship artist and songwriter Paul Baloche released his twelfth album – The Same Love. Each new song was birthed from a genuine inspired moment, an experience Paul describes as an “other than” place. It was out of this place that he created lyrics and melodies designed to achieve his ongoing goal of building a legacy of graciousness. But there we also moments in between the songs where Paul felt there was more to be said. This book is that collection of moments, a progression of thoughts and prayers different from the lyrics but the same as the songs. This is not a devotional, or a book that describes something. This is a devotion, a book that is something.

This enhanced eBook includes four videos and eleven songs, including the title track, "The Same Love."

Dear Reader

In many ways every recording project that I have done is like a journal. Life doesn’t stop just because you are in the studio. And life has a way of working itself into the songs and into the process of songwriting. From start to finish, each project I’ve recorded has taken about nine months. It’s like having a baby.

This particular project was a completely different story. The Same Love took over a year’s time to complete. A lot of things can happen in a year. And in a year marked by personal milestones—my youngest child leaving home, my father’s death, my twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, and my twentieth year in ministry—it forced me to reflect on who I am and commit myself afresh to God’s calling and purpose for my life.

The songs on this project were meant to help others worship. Often we struggle to find the right words to express our hearts to the Lord, and we find them in contemporary songs, hymns, or ancient psalms.

Psalms are the vocabulary of worship. For years I have practiced singing the Psalms and praying the songs. I model this approach after the Old Testament Levites, who 1 Chronicles 16 describes as ministering unto the Lord through praising God, giving thanks, and offering prayers of petition. Ministering to the Lord in private is the foundation and prerequisite for leading in the public meeting. As we get the words of the Psalms off of the page and into our hearts, we discover all sorts of benefits. The primary benefit being that we are drawn closer to the Lord in our personal walk. We begin to relate to Him relationally—biblically—truthfully.

That spills over into our public role of encouraging worship in the community that we lead in. We start to experience times when entire Scripture verses come rolling off our tongues in the midst of connecting one song to another. It’s an exciting realization when you feel like the Holy Spirit is bringing up scriptures that you have stored in your heart and releasing them in a timely moment.

During those private times of singing the Psalms to various melodies and chord progressions alone in the sanctuary, I’m often inspired to capture them with my iPhone’s digital recorder, and they become the beginnings of new songs to come—potentially. Either way it’s a practice that has helped keep my heart fresh toward the Lord—to keep God from just becoming my job. It keeps it real for me so that I don’t feel like a phony when leading a group in worship.

As I said, the fruit of singing the Word is that I get lots of song ideas. Years ago Ed Kerr and I were invited to write songs for a Scripture Memory Series. The entire project spanned twenty-six CDs and required a few hundred songs over the course of a year. We would meet
