Breakthrough


”We can taste it in the air We can feel it in our bones The victory we have in Christ The everlasting God alone...


Open up the gates of Heaven Pour out your Spirit on us now As we receive your marvelous grace We will breakthrough, in Jesus name...


Breakthrough, whoa Breakthrough, whoa Were gonna breakthrough because of you Jesus Breakthrough in Jesus name”


-Breakthrough song lyrics by Natalia Chase, Colin Boyd, & Craig Allen



Saturday, April 23, 2022's event at Nationwide Arena truly felt like a breakthrough!


It was an honor for my brother, Colin Boyd, and me to be able to share this original song we co-wrote, along with Craig Allen, in this place after composing and playing music together since we were 5 and 6 years old. If you know our past, you know that we've been crushed more times than we care to mention throughout our musical journey, and stages frequently feel like altars to us.

To my own surprise, I wept while driving to dress rehearsal after receiving a text from my college roomie that read, "No matter how many years it has been and no matter how much time has gone by, I [God] will cause you to receive the promise" and...


Do not, therefore, fling away your [fearless] confidence, for it has a glorious and great reward. - (Hebrews 10:35)

All those years of faithfulness to the things God had placed in our hearts just poured out at one moment, and I lost it. I believe the years were a tool the Lord used to kill the idol of success and the idol of influence in me so that I would come to know and seek HIM as my ultimate reward...and sincerely desire one name—Jesus—to be praised. And while "Saturday's performance" was like a little kiss from Heaven, the real jewels were the individuals we got to do it with! To put it mildly, the Unified. family was wonderful!


They oozed grace, humility, service, and joy from the first practice until Saturday's celebration! Their shared desire to see God exalted was #everything! I heard this quote by Tauren Wells and it seems so fitting...

"If what you do has the ability to move people, why not move them toward God [our truest reward] and toward each other?"

I believe we got to do exactly this and the #Lord was honored through it.
