“S H A M E L E S S: the Song by Camila Cabello to God Speaking to Me Through the Lyrics”

By Guest Contributor: Emily Kirk

Shaym-le-ss/ˈʃeɪmləs/adjective; (of a person or their conduct) characterised by having or showing no feeling of shame.

By definition, the concept of one being without shame fits seamlessly into Christianity. Life as a saved, born-again Christian means that Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice (aka His bloody crucifixion on the Cross of Calvary over 200 years ago) is enough to abolish shame completely. However, if you’re reading this article right now – you’re living on Earth – in earthly flesh, with earthly influences. Influences that repeatedly leave everyone feeling shameful about something.

However, there is a psychology that happens to all Christians whenever we feel convicted – a mental ‘tug-of-war’, if you will. These convictions are the undeniable evidence of God drawing us back to His heart whenever our spirit begins to stray. Usually, convictions when it comes to believers make us immediately aware of our sin, to a degree where we feel the immediate need to repent, or at least pick up the bible that’s been left untouched on our bedside tables for a week. But sometimes? God gives such obvious signs, using His sense of humour paired with His deep knowledge about the innermost parts of you to convict you when you least expect it. And as a young woman with a ‘stan Twitter’ account and unconditional love for popstar Camila Cabello, my shamefulness is felt in the spirit of idolatry. But, on September 6th, 2019, He spoke to me so strongly, using a Camila song itself to personally convict me of it. I mean, come on! Out of all the songs, and all the artists in the world, God used undoubtedly the biggest popstar in the world’s song, knowing full well that said pop star was the one who I gave all my attention to?

It was on this night that I listened to these lyrics of her newest release, ‘Shameless’ for the first time:

“Right now, I’m shameless
Screaming my lungs out for ya
Not afraid to face it
I need you more than I want to,
Need you more than I want to…”

—“Shameless” Song by Camila Cabello 🎵

As the last line of the above chorus finished, I immediately paused Spotify —-like in the way you would turn down the TV when you hear your Mum call you from another room. It didn’t take long for the Lord to speak to me. Something that at that time, hadn’t happened so obviously for a while. “Shameless…” The dialogue begins. A modernised version of Romans 8:1 regularly said by a pastor at the church I hadn’t gone to in months revealed itself. “For there is now no shame and condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 8)

“EMILY!” The Lord’s gentleman-like voice began. “You’re going to concerts…” He shows me the times I spent all my money as a teenaged McDonald’s worker getting VIP packages and running for barricade. “Screaming your lungs out for these singers…” Then led my fingers to swipe back to the Instagram story I had just posted with the screenshot of said song a few seconds reminding people of who Camila and Demi Lovato and Jessie James Decker and Little Mix are…God spoke subtly “…you should be screaming, SHAMELESSLY for ME while singing in worship!!”

He continued his points. “You should be sharing, SHAMELESSLY that you are in love with Me through your posts!” Amen.

“YOU SHOULD BE SHAMELESS ABOUT


…ME.”

And with that, a renewed fear of the Lord made me check the deepest parts of my heart, and He turned the shame of being shameless to the understanding of being righteous.

And as you come to the end of this article, one imperfect Christian to another – I ask you. What will God use to speak to you, to make you do a heart check? To turn your cycle of shamelessness and shame of sin back to the never-ending knowledge of His grace?

Because believe me, I know now –

He’ll do it in the most obvious ways.

Recently, in headline news, Kanye West decided to do Gospel music. It seems that the “Jesus Walks,” rapper has made a turn from the secular culture to a now Gospel focus. This is so exciting, as I have been praying for him to come to know the truth of the good news, aka “gospel” of Jesus Christ. Jesus died to save sinners, which all of us are, according to the Word of God.

It is very interesting from his Yeezus projects to his now seemingly devoted faith. I pray that Kanye West is sincere in his devotion to his commitment to do christian gospel music. I know that since I first heard his music I felt he was different than any other artist and I really thought he was making an impact on culture by not rapping initially about popping bottles and models. West has appeared to make a come back and turn around to a genuine faith and dedication to the Lord.

According to sources, West also announced that he “is no longer making secular music” and will focus on gospel “from here on out.” —AV CLUB

According to Variety Magazine, West, “As part of the unusual rollout of Kanye West’s forthcoming album “Jesus Is King” — which is apparently now being released sometime today — IMAX announced that it is releasing a companion film of the album, bearing the same name. It will be released exclusively in IMAX theatres around the world on Friday, October 25, 2019.

‘Filmed in the summer of 2019, ‘Jesus Is King’ brings Kanye West’s famed Sunday Service to life in the Roden Crater, visionary artist James Turrell’s never-before-seen installation in Arizona’s Painted Desert,’ a release from IMAX said of the film.”

I had the honor and privilege of interviewing author Joyce Smith (The Impossible) and the mother of John Smith, the main character of the film Breakthrough. I also interviewed Pastor Jason Noble, who came immediately on the scene to join Mrs. Smith in prayer.

Singer-songwriter Tori Kelly is performing at the Billboard Music Awards on May 1, 2019 and she is performing with country stars Dan and Shay. The event will be hosted by former American Idol winner and singer Kelly Clarkson. 

Recently, Tori Kelly released her latest single, “Change Your Mind,” and also has her “acoustic sessions” out now. Go to her official website for more information about her tour dates and also to download her music at: http://www.torikellymusic.com 

Tori Kelly was discovered on YouTube and is now signed with Capitol Records and she won a Grammy for “Hiding Place” for the best Gospel Album and Best Gospel Performance Single. She is a christian but is more undercover in the secular world and this was her first gospel or faith based project. 

In 2018, Tori was interviewed with I AM SECOND, and shared her testimony and relationship with God. She is so inspiring and her voice is so beautiful! She is definitely one of my favorite artists and it is so neat to see her journey from being a Youtuber to becoming such a powerful voice in our generation! 

Check out the video and the official white chair interview below:

Lauren Daigle’s YOU SAY on Secular Radio

Recently, I was listening to secular radio 104.3 FM (MY FM), and I heard worship leader and CCM artist Lauren Daigle singing, “You Say.” This warmed my heart so much that’s God’s truth is being poured out over the airwaves. This is the move of HOLY-WOOD. It’s the subtle tidle wave of the Holy Spirit being poured out and splashing over the radio, TV, in films and in other spheres of influence.

Heres the link to “YOU SAY” with the lyrics:

 

I love Daigle’s voice as it sounds like a Kari Jobe mix with an Adele vibe. She’s such an amazing artist, singer and worshipper. God opened some big doors for Lauren Daigle with “Jimmy Kimmel,” “Dancing with the Stars,” and more!

I truley believe there’s a move in Hollywood and that God is changing the airwaves to make it Holy-Wood! Comment below if you agree! Keep praying for our leaders, and for more of God’s army to arise in this hour! Amen!

New Song “ARMY FRONTLINES”

I declare this over Hollywood, and pray for revival over the land. I pray for the purity movement and for people to come to know the Lord through the airwaves. I pray this song blesses you, and encourages you, especially if you are on the front lines of media, ministry or in Hollywood.

According to sources, Lauren Daigle, christian worship CCM artist reached to the top of the charts with her latest album. She sounds like a mixture between Kari Jobe meets Adele, and has a raspy breathy voice that is powerful and life changing. Her songs, “Trust in You,” and “How Can It Be,” (2015) are some of my favorites from her first debut album. She has been nominated for a Grammy and is a Dove Award winning artist.

Recently, Daigle’s new released album, “Look Up Child,” reached #1 on the charts and she was invited to come on to the daytime talk show “ELLEN.” This is a big step in the christian music world, in what I call HOLYWOOD, where artists are merging into the secular to shine their light. I love seeing someone who I have been so impacted by musically, vocally and even spiritually in my own walk with the Lord through worship to see her reach so many people.

It’s wonderful to see that people are able to use their gifts and talents to bless others, plant seeds, share the Gospel and even spread hope in the midst of hard times. Lauren Daigle is a brave singer-songwriter to be able to address some of her own personal struggles through writing her latest album, which is real and raw.
