I know it’s been a while since I last wrote. As you can imagine, we’ve had a lot to navigate through over the past few months. January and February’s tour was incredible, and honestly one of the most personally impactful of my life. God surely knew what he was doing, and in his perfect foresight was preparing us for all that was to come. After returning home, the north and east side of Nashville was completely ripped apart by a vicious tornado that came during the night. Thank God we live on the south side of the city and were completely untouched. However, our neighbors did not fare so well and faced complete devastation and loss. We may have blinked, and all of a sudden our nation was facing a pandemic of grand proportions. I still can’t fully grasp the levels of what all of this means for us in the long run. What I do know, is that we must rely on the manifold wisdom of God and not on the fear of the unknown. He saw this coming long before we ever did. My tour was supposed to begin this weekend in North Carolina. Obviously, everything has been canceled or postponed for now. As I was in prayer with the Lord, he led me to do a quick release of a new song for the times we are living in. All week we have been working diligently, day and night, to release this song to you. In only three days from now, “2020 (Strangely Dim)” will release on my birthday, Monday March 30th!! It will be uploaded to Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, and all places you can hear music! A Press Release has already been written up! You can read it below:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — In wake of the Corona Virus, as fear and uncertainty spread, recording artist & songwriter Kathleen Carnali makes an early release of her new song and music video “2020 (Strangely Dim).” “It’s a realignment back to the truth of God’s word, to keep our eyes on the author of our faith, and not on confusion.” Contemplative in nature, this song takes the listener from the valley of the unknown, to a mountain top of complete reliance on God, and refocusses us through these challenging times. “Just as the Israelites looked up to the raised bronze serpent and were healed… hindsight can be 20/20. So now, as we step into the second quarter of the year, I pray this song helps bring clear vision to us as we look upon the One who was lifted up for us. The world grows strangely dim, as we set our eyes on Him.”Thank you all so much for your prayers over us and for this song! I’m believing God to use it as a beacon of light in a fearful and uncertain world. Even the smallest of candles can burn so bright, that the darkness must flee, vision is regained, and the way is illuminated. We are the people of “The Way!” And The Way is Jesus! My greatest birthday gift, will be to know that you are strengthened and encouraged by my new song. Pease share it as a warm blanket of hope with others, as we focus on Christ, our Healer, our Savior, and our Lord!
I love you all! Will send you the song in 3 days!!
In Christ forever,
