'Take It To The Cross' Katy Nichole New York Sessions

Listen to this upbeat, foot-tapping song titled, ‘Take It To The Cross’ by Katy Nichole in New York Sessions. 

“You’ve spent so many sleepless nights. Worries racin’ through your mind.
You’re breakin’, is your soul achin’. You’ve got all this shame inside.
The kind that people try to hide. You’re hurtin’, are you searchin’
Well, I know there’s a place you can lay all your burdens down.”

The first verse of the song captures our daily troubles of adulting and trying to get ahead in the rat race of life. But Katy’s music turns our heads away from our problems and puts our eyes squarely on the cross with a reminder of how we can take our burdens to our savior. 

We can lay ourselves at the feet of our “Mercy Giver.” She reminds us God will wash our sins away in Jesus’ name. Along with washing our sins away, God will break the chains holding us back. All we have to do is take it to the cross. 

It’s such a simple concept, but we lose sight of it when we’re faced with the daily realities of life. Parenting, bills, health struggles, relationship challenges, and laundry. Laundry is never done! But the Lord knows and sees our lives. He wants to lift our burdens and replace them with his spiritual joy. I love Katy’s music vibe of southern gospel revival with a hint of country.

What I love even more about her music is Katy takes challenges and trials of her own life and creates music we all can relate to. This 22-year-old has faced congenital scoliosis, depression, and pain, but she stands in victory with God who healed her. She can’t help but sing of his miracles and faithfulness to remind her listeners, to take all your burdens to the cross. 

"Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it,” Matthew 16:24-25
