The Lord has made me glad!
Here is Miriam’s inverview, if you want to get a sense of her heart.
From Miriam’s bio:
Something about the way Miriam writes allows her to connect with a particularly wide range of believers.
“I put His words in my songs a lot because as we speak and believe His promises He is released to work on our behalf. I believe we need intimacy with Jesus and declaration of His word also”.
The results have been clear, and Miriam’s recent move to the USA – where she now lives, records, writes and tours – has reflected her increasing currency among the established worship scene. Her latest album – “Made Me Glad” – can only add to that and point to a future where far more Christians around the world will sing her songs and draw strength from her faith.
“The album was mostly shaped by songs that have been inspired from praise and worship or personal times with God where I received life and strength through His world. As worshipers I think writers get the urge to put these revelations to song because it’s not just for us it’s for the world.”
As Miriam sees it, the world’s been through it a bit of late:
“We have seen the breakdown of family, abuse of people all over the world and economic challenges as nations have drifted from God’s word, which is our guideline to enjoy life and honor each other. I believe keeping close to Jesus and living by His word while society continues to force it’s values on us is what will keep us firm, real and relevant.
“It makes me proud that wherever you go, the gospel has been preached somewhere. There are church’s big and small being a light where God has called them and fighting the fight of faith.”
Part of that resurgence must go to the increasing connection people are finding in worship, as Miriam explains:
“More and more freedom in worship that has created a platform for the future church to run after God, pick up the baton and take hope to their generation.”
