Point of Grace: How You Love

Re-releasing records can be tricky. I know for me, minus a select few, I don’t bother purchasing an album I already own. Point of Grace is one of those exceptions. I already was inspired by this record when it had released a year prior to its “deluxe edition,” so it stands to reason that I’d be listening to this edition too.

There are simply too many tracks to single out, so I’ll be just going through a select few. To start, the title track is awesome. Founding member Heather Payne (she has since left the award-winning group) sounds fantastic on it. The song prompts listeners to think about the “small stuff” in life. It encourages us to “take chances,” and to remember that it’s not who we know in our life that will count but how we live. How the song relates to us is beautiful; the home-spun lyrics are truly from the heart. “Heal the Wound” is a very personal journey that features Leigh’s vocal talents. In her voice the meaning behind the song is a clear vocal performance. This song asks God to heal the reminders of the past but leave a scar as a reminder of His mercy. It reminds us to never forget the regretful choices we’ve made and through that the loving mercy that God extends. In her case it’s in reference to an abortion (prior to becoming a Christian).  “All the World” is a fun upbeat tune which talks of being a voice for Christ.

Like I said, there are too many songs to individually talk about. A handful of the other titles include “Fearless Heart,” Broken Thing” and “Any Way.” All of the performances sound wonderful as does the accompanying instrumentals. “Heal the Wound” is a piano driven song while the new cut “I Wish” is country inspired. Speaking of new, this edition features three new cuts including “I Wish,” “King of the World” (aww… so sweet!) and an acoustic version of “How You Live.”

Each and every one of the songs offer up messages of deep faith with exception to one or two that are more feel-good than thought-provoking.  

I used to think that I could re-write history… then I could just pretend I never knew me back then… but it’s the memory of the place You found me in that keeps me on my knees and even though I’m free. Heal the wound but leave the scar. – Heal the Wound
