Aaron Shields - We've Come This Far By Faith

This song is the theme for our local church. When you hear the story of Hughie and Angela Lawrence - how they grew up in separate and contrasting environments, how God put them together and blessed them with three amazing children and how he used them to spearhead the church plant in Stoke-on-Trent you can understand why this song means so much to us as a family of believers.

It's one thing to love a song, though, and another to come across a blissed out version of it like this one right here. I love the ol' hammond organ and the artists who work their gift on this are such a blessing to my soul, ears and entire being. Never ever heard of Aaron Shields before, but now that I have, you better believe I'll be listening out for even more of this brother!!

At the end of the day the message of this song is true in more ways than one. It's not only been leaning on the Lord that's seen us through but experiencing His unrelenting faithfulness to His Word and mission and us in the whole thing. I sincerely hope you are amazingly blessed by this version of a beautiful song. Enjoy.

For His Name's Sake
