The first time I heard Trisha
Yearwood’s music was when my friends and I watched the movie Con Air which
starred Nicholas Cage.   “How Do I Live” appeared
in the movie soundtracks, made a leap in the chart and sold millions of
copies.  It let everything out in the
catchy chorus that goes, “How do I live without you…I want to know…How do I
breathe without you…If you ever go…How do I ever, ever survive How do I, how do
I…Oh, how do I live.” Indeed it is tough to be separated from the person you
hold dear.  It’s slow and dramatic
highlighted by nice solos and riffs complimenting Trisha Yearwood’s calm and
soothing voice.
A friend of mine told me years ago to
do the things I fear and in the track “Prize Fighter”, I ponder on the value of
fear when I got to listen to the song lyrics. 
I recognized the first as the fear of God as the song shows how pain
refines and strengthens a person to battle a challenge.  The second is the negative kind of fear. The
character in the song uses fear and situation as a training ground to exercise
his emotional and spiritual muscles.  As
the chorus goes: “When you hit the ground, you find your wings…You go one more
round when that bell rings…They say you’re done, but here you come…You’re a
hammer hittin’, spittin’ fire, Prize Fighter”. 
There are times when we’re pressed, but not crushed.  Other times we’re struck down, but not
knocked down.  Everything works out for
good for those who keep the faith.  It
turns your fear and pain into strength, power and victory.  The astonishing piano virtuoso at the start
of the song is incredibly dazzling.  Then
the drums kicked it off to add flavor to the beat.  Lead guitar opens up in the chorus with a
signature lick adding power to win.  The
production quality is great, emphasizing the distinct, yet beautifully blended
timbres of Trisha Yearwood’s powerful voice with Kelly Clarkson’s alto and good
vocal range.  It’s a nice, soothing and
uplifting music that makes you feel good.
“Met Him In A Motel Room” is
following the scent of God, seeking, pursuing Him in the secret place, the
place where you’re comfortable and where you are not disturbed by the noise of
your heart and surroundings.  This is the
place where you established a relationship with Him, sing praises, worship, giving
thanks, expressing yourself, waiting and resting on the Lord.  It’s the place where you hear His voice, it’s
the place where dreams are planted in your heart, the place where you get
wisdom.  Given instructions are received
to tackle different situations in life.  It’s
the place where you develop spiritual eyes and become a strategist.  The Secret Place is where you find your
victory.  It’s one of my favorite places
to be!!!  Are you ready for change? These
tracks can definitely impact your lives. Kudos to Trisha Yearwood for spreading
life changing messages!!!
