Mandisa | Out Of The Dark

Disclosure (in accordance with the FTC’s 16 CFR, Part 255:  “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

Mandisa wrote her song “Overcomer” in 2013 to encourage her close friend Kisha, who was battling breast cancer. Mandisa really believed and prayed that God was going to heal her, but when Kisha went to be with Jesus in 2014, Mandisa’s foundation was shaken in a way she never expected. She fell into a deep pit of depression for close to 3 years, shutting out her friends, family and the rest of the world. Mandisa believes if she had kept going down that road she was on, she would not be here today… but God stepped in and lifted her out of that pit by using her close friends to communicate their love for her and God’s love for her. This album is Mandisa’s way of letting her fans into her story – it’s called 'Out Of The Dark' because that is exactly where God lifted her out of! 

You can watch her talk openly about this on Good Morning America last week here: http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/mandisa-opens-overcoming-depression-47020463

*My Review*
I have always been a fan of Mandisa, but her newest CD "Out Of The Dark" may just be her best one yet. I loved blasting this CD from my car while driving, & while in the house.

After listening to this CD, I am reminded that we all have our moments when we are down and in a place that we think we will never see a way out. "Out of the Dark" reminds us that Jesus is ALWAYS there and He will NEVER leave us, nor forsake us. 

I love all of the songs on this CD, but I think my fav one is "Bleed the Same"
