I had missed several opportunities to see Joseph since he started his solo ministry and was really sorry about it.   However, now that I finally got to see and hear him, I feel even worse about missing him before!!   I just love him as a soloist.   He brings a very personal touch with his marvelous songwriting, super vocals, and moving testimony.   And I’m so glad he gets to travel with his wife at his side!    I saw him in a Sunday night service at one of my favorite churches – Victory Baptist Church in Rockmart, Georgia.   The church loves its southern gospel music and even has a new member – 83-year old Wayne Ray – who sang an old Gaither song for us – It’s Beginning To Rain.

Here’s what Joseph sang for us:

  • Welcome Home  The title song from his 2014 solo album was a good one to start with.  Of course, the album has 9 more songs on it, too, all of which were written by Joseph with some awesome co-writers!
  • He Is Good To Me – This was another really peppy song from the time Joseph was with The Perrys.
  • Never, No Never – This is a great song of encouragement and was on the charts for Joseph earlier this year making it all the way to #5!
  • God Is Good – We had the treat of hearing Lindsay sing one song for us.   Of course, we all wanted to hear a duet as well!!  Maybe next time. . .
  • Royal Descendant – This was also from his days with The Perrys.
  • What a Day That Will Be – This was a very nice arrangement and Joseph had the congregation singing along on the choruses.  This is one of the songs from his “Take Time To Be Holy” hymns CD.
  • The Beauty of the Blood – I could tell that this was pastor Barry Snapp’s favorite song of the evening!!    It was one of mine too.  It has such a strong message.
  • Begging For Change – This song had some really interesting lyrics.  It talked about a begger waiting for Jesus to come by but then it talks about another kind of change —– Begging for change – But not the kind you can spend.  The change that comes from heaven when you’re touched by the Hand of the one who can heal you and save your soul.  The One with the power – the One in control.
  • If You Knew Him – Of course, Joseph wrote this song while he was with the Perrys and it was the perfect ending to the concert.
