A Woman Like Me Release

Greetings friends,

With the release of “A Woman Like Me” there is only one single left to be released (more information on the release date coming soon! Check for updates on my Facebook page, www.facebook.com/gabriellearianamusic). Since beginning this musical journey back in October with the release of “When Christmas Hurts” there has been a lot of growth in my own life, both musically and personally. I have been asked when there will be a completed album and the honest answer is, I don’t know! Composing for me has always been associated with incredible spiritual lessons that God seems to place right in front of me, and usually I am able to turn those lessons into songs. However, I always find it fascinating because I never think of the songs I have “put down on paper” as songs I have written. Rather, I see them as God’s songs, containing lessons He has taught me/is teaching me throughout my daily walk with Him and He has given me the beautiful responsibility of sharing them with all of you.

I will go through periods where I am in the process of learning and comprehending all these tough lessons, and usually during this time, I am unable to write anything and it is a very “dry” spell. Other times, lessons, ideas, and melodies are flowing so fast and furiously, I have a hard time keeping on top of everything. It would be nice if one day I was able to find a balance, but at this point in my life, I am convinced that the Lord has a reason for the way in which He gives me songs. I always know a song is from Him when it is written without much of a struggle or strain. Lyrics seem to come to my mind without having to think twice and a melody falls into place alongside the words. When this happens, it is such a blessing because I get to “see” (or maybe I should say “hear”) the Lord’s hand in the creation of the song.

Oftentimes, a verse in Scripture or a Bible story will stand out to me in a fresh and new understanding. When this occurs, I will find myself meditating on it more than usual and it is usually during this time when God seems to open my eyes to the “nugget” that inspires a new song.

My prayer right now is that God would continue to be gracious and share new and precious insights with me from all the many lessons I have learned and am currently learning; and that, in His timing, He would give and inspire more songs that I can share with you all.
