Nichole Nordeman returns with a beautiful new album titled, “The Unmaking.”

Why the unmaking?

Nichole writes,

“Before things in our lives can be resurrected and given new life, certain things must die. Before beauty blooms in spring, roots must do the hard work under the hard frozen soil of winter. Before you renovate and re-build, you tear down the parts of the structure that are weak or damaged or dangerous.

Before we make, we must unmake.”

Sometimes we have to tear down before we can build up.

I have been listening to this CD in my minivan.  As always, Nichole lyrics are poetic and meaningful.  My 4th grade daughter loves the title track “The Unmaking.”  The song that really sticks in my mind is “Not To Us.”

Let us not imagine
That we might have a hand in where the wind blows
Where grace goes
Let not any passion be for kingdoms we have fashioned in our own name
For our own fame

Not to us
Not to us
But to Your name be glory
To Your name be glory
