This driving, yet intimate collection of songs flow from an encounter Julie had while singing with her team at IHOP.
"We were singing through Revelation 4:1. 'I looked and behold a door standing open in heaven and…a voice saying…Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.' Something inside me just leaped and I knew, this is mine, this is for me, God you said the door is open. Here I am."
"In a new way, I believed that God wanted to encounter me as much as He wanted to speak to preachers, the prophetic voices and other leaders. So much of my life has been spent saying, 'I want to know God like so and so.' Then one day I just said this is mine and I am going for it."….said Julie.
After that, Julie says she began a different kind of pursuit. Dreams were given and songs began to flow.
The project's intensely intimate title track "Longing For The Day," connects into the core of a believer's heart, the need to see Jesus face to face longing for His return!
"I Want To Know God" draws the listener to simply be with God, to sit with Him and share the secrets of His heart.
This recording also includes a "bonus" track on which Julie shares a dream she had which inspired her to write many of these songs.
