I love this CD! It was released at the perfect timing in my life. My dog just went to heaven and I listened to the song "Paradise". It encouraged me to hear Jeremy sing the lyric "I can't wait to walk to the streets of gold, and see a lion with a lamb, and colors that are untold. . ." This confirmed that I will see my dog in heaven since there's a lion with a lamb, and also "colors that are untold" refers to the Biblical reality of there being a "Rainbow Bridge" according to Scripture in : Ezekiel 1:28, Revelation 4:3, Isaiah 65:25, and Revelation 5:13. That poem about pet loss is not just a fairy tale, but Biblically symbolizes the rainbow that can be found at the throne of God in "the colors that are untold". The song "Paradise" brings me to tears as it warms my heart to know that my dog is in Paradise and I will be there with him one day as well "on my knees, I will glorify. . . in Paradise on my knees . . "!
This CD is very uplifting to hear as we are recalling how much God loves us and He wants us to love others too. Besides the song "Paradise", I really enjoy the title track "Reckless" which reminds us to live a life that is surrendered to the Lord and most of all "Free" since it reminds us that we don't have to allow our sin to drown us if we let into our hearts the One Who came to set us free.
I highly recommend this CD from Jeremy for its worshipful content! I even bought one for a friend. I suggest that everyone do the same since it's bound to become a bestseller!
Reckless: A CAMPerâ€™s Take on Jeremy Campâ€™s Latest
February 13, 2013
February 12, 2009 I became a CAMPer. Four years later I hold in my hands Reckless, the latest CD from Jeremy Camp. The CD confirms why I became a CAMPer in the first place. Four weeks ago I let Jeremy know that I was trying to have the song "Reckless" as a prayer for my life. Listening to the other 10 tracks on the album, many of them have lyrics that also resonate deeply and are becoming prayers for my life. With each album, I have seen how Jeremy has grown in his relationship with God learning about Him, learning about himself, and seeing parts of what God had planned because of what Jeremy has gone through. Reckless stirs the soul and moves the spirit to a deeper bolder relationship with God. I see a spiritual maturity in Jeremy and his music with this album that was visibly a work in progress before.
Reckless has so much worship built into it that the only thing that keeps it from being a worship album is the album's classification by Jeremy's record label. I would say that someone forgot to tell him that this was not going to be a worship album (and we the listeners benefit). I listen to all 11 tracks and want to raise my hands in worship while totally rocking out. I have described Jeremy's music as rockin' worship. This album is no exception. As much as I think all of Jeremy's albums are great, this is Jeremy's best album yet.
