I have recently become online friends with Natalie Wilson and have already been touched by her sweet spirit. Natalie and her husband, Jason, have been leading worship for twelve years, often contributing their original songs to the worship experience. Natalie and Jason write songs that capture the full picture of the walk of faith – the joy and hope God’s love inspires and also the doubt and fear life in this broken world can bring. Their debut album, Refuge, was released on November 4, 2015. In the following devotion Natalie shares how she came to write You Will Not Forget Me, a featured song on Refuge. I know you will be blessed.
that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb?
Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you.
Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;
your walls are continually before me.” Isaiah 49:15-16

Please take a moment to listen to this beautifully, powerful song.
Meet Natalie and Jason
(Blessed Are the Broken):
Husband and wife, Jason and Natalie Wilson, have been leading worship
together for 12 years. After years of leading with other artist’s songs
they felt a calling to begin contributing songs of their own to worship
services. Their song writing began with a desire to create the songs of
wrestling and lament that were hard to find in the traditional worship
repertoire. They wanted to write songs that captured the full picture
of the walk of faith – the joy and hope God’s love inspires and also the
doubt and fear life in this broken world can bring. They began playing
original worship songs while leading their congregation and were
encouraged to record a full-length album. Don Chaffer (Waterdeep) agreed
to come alongside as their producer and November 4th, 2015 the debut
album, Refuge was released. Jason and Natalie have written songs of
praise and songs of lament, songs of wrestling and songs of faith. The
lyrics were inspired by great Fathers of the faith such as St. Augustine
and King David, and from the pain and joy they have personally
experienced in their walk with the Lord.
