Very few things in life can shatter the defenses of a very strong will. In CCM Artist Jodi Essex’s upcoming rock ballad, music video out February 25, 2022, “Unravel” proclaims the Gospel power that comes from surrender. Vulnerable lyrics juxtapose the nature of being human with a call, and conscious decision, to follow Christ – “Sometimes I’m fighting, What you’ll make of me, Though deep inside, There’s no in between, torn at the seams.” Inspired by her own faith journey and bearing witness to the stories of those around her, “Unravel” reveals a vulnerable perspective for a generation met with the wondrous battle of personal and spiritual willpower.
“The process of ‘unraveling’ ourselves is a common struggle between what we’ll find as we dig into our deepest selves and putting down our sword,” Essex notes. “We, as humans rise and fall against the things promised to us and shown to us, while finding ourselves at a crossroads, both of a faithless heart and a loyal servant.” She goes on to share, with pure-hearted conviction, “The salvation in Jesus offers so much more than we could ever imagine.”
If you’re wondering what’s next for Jodi Essex, the future is bright with new songs as part of a 6-song EP met with singles, and a collaboration with fellow rocker Matt Moore. With a rocking live show, live touring will also be part of the picture.
