Story about the Song:
Crafted as a love song between the character and her Savior, she realizes her desire to become more like Him flourishes
When You Slow Down
She likes to pause life outta light hours and organize what she’s planned He likes to live life every hour and let the day’s work show from His Hands She likes to run around every minute while He likes to take a stroll She’s a blur in the darkness He’s a Light in the forest, Walkin’ through the fields of gold --- He likes to spend His nights in the barn and paint the next day in His mind She always seems to be scared of harm and live her life inside, countin’ time He’s always out there, sowin’ the seeds while she’s sowin’ dreams inside Her tiny heart’s burnin’, every step she is yearnin’ to walk through His valley of life --- And the winds change like a summer rain There’s no turnin’ time back, when you’re on the right track You just keep your eyes up and live like there’s no tomorrow Oh, one day it’ll be okay You’ll see your faith run true, when the clouds break through You’ll feel Him next to you When you slow down --- She hears a whisper, callin’ her name An’ she jumps the fence outside Beauty rushes into her gifts, She’s seein’ with the morning Light A trickled-yellow sunlight showers her heart as it’s healin’ warmth feels so right And we’re given right now For the people around us, And grace to bring them the Light --- And the winds change like a summer rain There’s no turnin’ time back, when you’re on the right track You just keep your eyes up and live like there’s no tomorrow Oh, one day it’ll be okay You’ll see your faith run true, when the clouds break through You’ll feel Him next to you When you slow down --- (Interlude) --- Who am I to plan my life alone? Don’t I know God’s love can heal my own? --- And the winds change like a summer rain……. There’s no tomorrow Ohh, one day it’ll be okay You’ll see your faith run true, when the clouds break through You’ll feel Him next to you…… When you slow down --- Ohhh…. --- Oooo….
“So I let go…and Trust." (Trust, Braided Light) Braided Light , (indie artist Jessica Standage) , is a Catholic inspirational singer/songwriter from SoCal.
Since starting piano at age 3, her art has blossomed into a colorful Light, showering down upon her every surrounding. Her passion for music is evident in many ways: from a quiet pencil-in-hand, to a random burst into song. She believes music to be a vessel through which the Holy Spirit works, and healing thrives through inspiration.
Jess enjoys accompanying herself on multiple instruments, including piano, banjo and guitar, and finds immense joy being self-produced in all her work. After years of classical training, earning her B.P.S. through Berklee College of Music (class of 2021), and drawing particular inspiration from Sarah Kroger and Andrew Peterson, her songwriting and production work digs below the surface, creeps into the cracks, and draws forth living light for listeners to hold onto.
There is much beauty in this world, waiting to be discovered. God’s innumerable graces are just waiting for us to ask for them – and by taking hold of them, we can weave them into something beautiful.
We can Braid Light.
“If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces… never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again." ~St. Bernadette Soubirous
