I couldn’t find the lyrics anywhere online, so this is part of the song lyrics…what I heard them to be as I listened on Spotify and transcribed. All rights belong to Kate White Band and all The Glory belongs to God.
FEAR by Kate White
I’m standing on the banks of the river watching it rising.
Tired of praying, tired of crying, over analyzing.
Fear, Fear, get away from here.
Desperately trying to keep my head above water but it’s taking me under
Be a lot more peaceful, than trying to wrestle with the lightning and thunder.
Faith, Faith, tell me your still here.
Fear, Fear, get away from here.
Not gonna waste anymore tears.
(song goes on)

2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
About Kate White via https://www.katewhitemusic.com/
“For as long as I can remember, music has been an extension of my soul – a way to express my heart, to heal, to encourage others, to ‘speak’ truth in a song that can break through the walls around someone’s heart and let them know they are loved and that they matter.”
From her early roots playing bluegrass in her family band, to her infusion into folk/pop, celtic and country, Kate’s heart for organic grown and ambient infused arrangements continue to move her music and the message behind it forward.
Eight records in, Rise Up, Kate’s latest project and second release on the Responding Records label, is a full worship album combining the best of Kate’s folk influences with an indie / pop feel that is sure to bring a fresh sound to mainstream worship music.
Kate says, “The songs on this record truly reflect a sense of gratitude and celebration rising up out of the ashes. The struggle is real, but there is a joy that rises up from the rubble and makes something utterly beautiful and profound out of our lives when as we are faithful. May these songs bring a new intimacy and power to your walk with Jesus! And may they remind you of the freedom we have and the rest He has promised.”
Six Feet Down, released on The Responding Records label, has an Allison Krauss / Robert Plant ‘Rising Sands’ vibe with some Civil Wars mixed in. Rooted in her own story, this album authentically covers deeper struggles of life, yet lifts to a hopeful conclusion.
Kate shares, “The message of this project weaves through the deeper brokenness of our lives and gives a voice to subjects that music often dances around but never fully addresses. The beauty of it is it’s specific and illusive at the same time. It calls you out if you’ve lied and cheated your way through life, yet it gives you a voice if you’ve never been heard. It’s my prayer that this CD will give hope to those who are on both sides of an offense and strengthen all of us to move toward truth and wholeness.”
Kate is also a sought after speaker, something she would say pursued her…”I didn’t start off thinking I would be an artist and a speaker, but it grew naturally out of our events. I often share stories in our concerts, stories behind the songs, the brokenness I’ve walked through or the deeper truths God is revealing to me as I grow and heal in my own life. I long to see people living balanced lives and pressing into God’s rest and mystery. Many of us are running hard, too busy to slow down. Sometimes that’s just life getting away from us, but often it can be a way to avoid what we’ve pushed down for too long – wounds, longings, disappointment, fear. God knows it all and longs to draw us close…” Kate speaks from an honest place about life, love, humility and surrender.
Kate lives in Vancouver, WA with her husband, Jeff and has three grown children. Kate tours regionally with her band and nationally as a solo artist and speaker. She is the founder of Music That Matters, an organization dedicated to bringing hope to the broken and raising up artists to discover their unique call and story, and use their artistry to communicate their story to a lost and hurting world.
Six Feet Down is currently my FAVORITE album in life…
It’s just spot on for me and where I’m at right now in the chapter The Lord has me living out for His Glory. I am alive like never before and I am so excited and eager to serve God in what He has called me to do… Amen.
Here’s just a glimpse of what The Lord has done and is doing in my life. Special things and special people.. ♥
Praise God! You can look at these images and speculate lol.
The Lord is just on the move in my life like never before and I am soooo happy!
I am not afraid anymore. By The Grace of God I will speak and shout the Truth in Love!
I am so grateful and I bless His Holy Name for He really does make ALL things new!
Be blessed today in Yeshua’s Name! ♥
(This was actually like last week)
So, today I have a routine appointment with my gynecologist. I know that’s a very personal topic, but this is a personal journal-entry type blog post. I just want to give God The Glory.
The last time I was here, I was in a very dark place. I was in an abusive marriage that was so founded on lies and control that I could not see The Truth. I had no idea at the beginning of this year that God Almighty would open up the greatest of revelations in my 33 years of life. I was stuck and BOUND so tight.
I wanted to be pregnant. I wanted twins. I praise God with all my heart that He did not send them. There’s an entire story about The Lord speaking to me about babies. He was speaking loudly to me about my own story and testimony, but the enemy used it to deceive me. Like the serpent beguiled Eve, I was had so to speak. Familiar spirits and the occult. So very much has been given to me by The Lord God Almighty this year alone. No, I was not actually pregnant with human life. This was a Genesis in which my Creator was birthing something in me and in my life.
Glory to God! You see, so much pain and rage had been masked for years, for all my life. Things that were meant for me to never find out have surfaced at The Hands of my Messiah. The secular world masks what happened to me with potent psychiatric drugs. It’s the lies of man about things like getting enough sleep to prevent Bipolar Mania etc.
The sounds of squalling babies here in the clinic is a trigger.
Some amazing music for healing… ♥

Tonight I’m crying out on behalf of everyone in the world who is hurting. Everyone who has no idea of how precious they really are in your sight. For the dear souls that Jesus bought back with His Precious Blood on The Cross at Calvary, who have no idea that they are made in The Image of The LORD God Almighty. Lord, it is written in Your Holy Word,
Psalm 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
Psalm 34:18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
God, we come to you brokenhearted tonight and just lay it all on the Altar. You have shown me today God that there is a pain so heavy we cannot bear it and are not able to process it. Especially at a very young age. Trauma. It is my minuscule understanding that there are places someplace inside of our being or our mind where these particular events are hidden away so that we can function.
I do not believe as some do that these are alters, but places of refuge that the demons take advantage of when they have ground to torment us. Your Grace is Truly Amazing, Lord God. The peak I’ve gotten of Your heart brings me to tears. You are so Beautiful. I love you. You know I want to love you with ALL of my heart. This is why you have exposed the brokenness in me. What the world calls Bipolar Disorder or Multiple Personality disorder is just a term in Satan’s Kingdom of Pharmaceuticals and money to deal with the problem at hand. The suffering is all too real for too many. Tonight I plead on behalf of the whole world for an awakening and revelation because You said in Your Word,
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
The Churches today are not teaching The FULL GOSPEL, Lord. They cut Jesus off in Mark Chapter 16 at verse 16 (when He was STILL TALKING) in Your Description of The Great Commission to ALL Believers-NOT just the people back then. So much false doctrine and craziness going on today. Not many are walking in Power, signs and miracles as you gave us the Authority to do so, with Your Precious Holy Spirit living inside of us.
Mark 16:15-20 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
The Church is unaware of Her Identity today, Lord.
The reality is found in Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
If we as The Body of Christ knew Whose and Who we are, we would truly be walking in power and love with signs and wonders following our witness and preaching. Perhaps the world, or at least some of the world would come to saving faith in Jesus. Our identity is in Christ, we are not ourselves anymore after getting saved. So, tonight, we cry, ABBA, Father! Please wake up Your People and let them know just how much they are worth and how You Love them! Let’s reach the entire world with our testimonies for your Glory and the saving of souls!
God, give us the healing and deliverance we need to feel your love and overcome the pain we have acquired over the years. You will bind our wounds and wipe away our tears…oh, how you really do love us. In Jesus Name, Thank you, Amen.
Brothers and Sisters, let’s go back The Cross and remember our First Love. Let us remember WHY we started this journey. I know so many of you feel like quitting right now or maybe just don’t see a way out, but know this:
Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
This is FOR THE WORLD. Discouraged Christians. Sobbing sinners. Hurting, broken people in a dark and dying world.
This is not a message of condemnation but of a heavy prayer burden. Child of GOD, You are the Light. We just have to use it and shine for them all to see! Shine for JESUS ♥
IF we share the Truth…If we seek His Face in our prayer closets, we will surely find Him and He will share His heart with us. Let us pray for one another in this dark hour, and for the soil to be tilled, and for The Laborers to bet sent forth to The Harvest. I pray this encourages you. If it blesses you in any way, it’s The HOLY SPIRIT. I’m just writing what’s on my heart. God has been showing me things lately…like how the wall of my pride has to come down. We don’t have to worry about what in the world we are going to do right now because He said He’d finish what He started and NEVER leave us nor forsake us. Sweet dreams, Beloved. Rest, knowing it’s okay to be broken. You do not have to stay that way… Jesus Christ paid for your debt and with all 39 Stripes He paid for your healing and hurt.
1 Corinthians 1:28
And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
The 2 minutes that could change your life. Or at least how you look at things.
