“Sweet Little Place”, Josh’s newest single, is about staying together as a family, even when times get tough — a real story about taking risks and challenges in life as a family unit —  and no matter where life takes you, we’ve always got a sweet little place together that we call ‘home’.

"Sweet Little Place", by Josh Gilbert

THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG: “Sweet Little Place” — “A couple years back, when my future and musical career seemed uncertain, I got an unforeseen opportunity to work as a musician/producer in Central FL and we as a family prayed and made a transition to a new town, Winter Garden in Florida. It was a completely new world, although I had a few friends there. It wasn’t easy, but through the restlessness of change we found strength and peace as a family unit, more than ever before. We had no choice but to cling to each other, cling to God, and let Him lead. There is power when you work together and come into prayer & spiritual agreement in the home, and we wouldn’t have made it this far otherwise. “Sweet Little Place” is about that sort of family bond, where we together remain Christ-focused and make a safe place; ‘home’ is where that love is, and not based on a physical location or circumstance. Though we aren’t perfect, through the power of a Holy Spirit-led home, you can have peace and God’s Kingdom can thrive in your family.” – Josh

I hope that you will be encouraged with the messages of this new Project, in that when you feel overwhelmed in life, you don’t have only your own strength and plans to rely on — Jesus always provides us with a way out if we trust Him; He is always faithful!” — Josh Gilbert

New Baby!

So, in big news, we just gave birth to our third baby girl – Lydia Joy Gilbert – on April 7th, 2018!!! It was something we did not expect to go through upon moving down to Central, FL — nevertheless, God had other plans for us!

We were able to have a successful and smooth birth right at home – which is something we have never tried before. But God gave us tremendous peace about it, and everything worked out perfectly!!

The name “Lydia” comes from Lydia in the bible, and it derives from the Greek Λυδία, Ludía,[1][2][3] from λυδία (ludía; “beautiful one”, “noble one”.

What’s even more interesting is the biblical story behind Lydia in the New Testament. Lydia is a Biblical given name: Lydia of Thyatira, businesswoman in the city of Thyatira and deaconess in the New Testament’s Acts of the Apostles. She was the apostle Paul‘s first convert in Philippi and thus the first convert to Christianity in Europe. Lydia hosted Paul and Silas after their release from prison. It is possible that Lydia was the host for a house church during that time. According to Coleman Baker, “Lydia is described as a “worshiper of God” (probably synonymous with “God-fearer,” used elsewhere in Acts) “from the city of Thyatira” (located in Western Asia Minor) and “a dealer in purple cloth” (a luxury item in the ancient Mediterranean). She and her household are soon baptized and offer hospitality to the traveling preachers. Lydia’s house becomes the site for the church in Philippi, with her as its host and perhaps leader…. According to the book of Acts, Paul and his associates founded the church in Phillipi when Lydia and her household were baptized. One might conjecture that several of the women from the “place of prayer” were among those who joined with Lydia in this new movement.”[4]

So Lydia, in a sense, opened up her house as one of the first “Houses of Prayer” in the early Church days! How cool is that! We pray and believe for a special calling on Lydia’s life as she grows and discovers her purposes in God in the many years to come!!

Thank you for your continued prayers for us as we live as a family on mission for the cause of Christ.

-Josh
