Zion + Australia

Hello everybody! I am very excited. Extremely excited, should I say. Hillsong United has officially released their new album ‘Zion’ today! As many of you may not know, I had the privilege of going to the Hillsong Conference this past summer with a group of young adults from my church. The conference is held every summer in Sydney, Australia for a week. It was an incredible experience and it was probably the best trip I’ve ever gone on.

‘Zion’ is the newest installment for Hillsong’s successful music career. The upbeat, almost dance-like music is amazing and I especially love the song ‘Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)’. My favorite part of the song is in the Bridge:

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders Let me walk upon the waters Wherever You would call me Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander And my faith will be made stronger In the presence of my Saviour

The song is really about walking with God even through troubled waters. Although we may feel like we are sinking, we need to remember that our lifeguard walks on the water. Jesus is the only one who can save us when we are drowning. Meet Him in Zion, the safe sanctuary where we will be able to remain with Him forever.
