JIM MCCOMAS - Lift Them High CD

"Lift Them High" features 14 songs of help, hope and healing.  We all go through struggles now and then, and those tough times are often when we lift our hands and hearts to God, asking for His touch.  The title song on this album is a new one about the power of prayer, written by Reagan Riddle of the Primitive Quartet.  It fits in well with the rest of the album as the entire project is themed to uplift the discouraged.

The song "His Favorite Child Of All" reminds us that God's favorite child is the one who needs Him the most.  The ones who are broken and wounded and hurting can find their strength and new life in Jesus.  When Jim recorded this song, he had no idea how much hurt was just ahead for him and his family.

"This CD is lovingly dedicated to the life and legacy of Matthew James McComas,"  Jim writes.  "Our first born son Matt was a gentle, quiet, polite and kind young man.  He loved life, his friends and family and the Lord.  He also battled a terrible addiction problem.  On Saturday, February 25, 2017, Matt's early battle ended, and a gracious and loving God that he had known personally since the age of seven, lovingly took him home.  While Matt's battle is over, ours is just beginning - a battle to stir a much needed discussion in our churches about addiction issues, a battle for the lives of other good and decent young people like Matt, and a battle to show love, grace and understanding to those who need it most in our midst."

Along with the ten inspirational and encouraging songs, there are four songs "just for fun."  One of the funniest men I know, Jim brings that sense of humor to four bonus songs.  I would guess the "Chicken Eating Preacher" song hits pretty close to home for Jim.  I know "The Roudabout Song" refers to a new feature in Jim's hometown.  If you need a lift of spirit, these funny songs are for you.

Producer Jeff Collins says, "As producer of this recording, one of the things that stands out is the rich, warm tone of Jim's voice. That soothing sound paired with a wonderful selection of songs for all ages makes for easy and enjoyable listening. Experience times of praise, reflection and even a few laughs as you listen to Jim's music. You'll be very pleased to have this CD as part of your Christian music collection."
