Michelle Martin - Fallow Ground (CCM)

Michelle Martin - Fallow Ground
On Friday, June 10, Michelle Martin shared new music with this track titled 'Fallow Ground'. We are happy to be able to share the song with you. The official audio can be heard below.

Michelle shares: "I’m so excited!! This song has lived in my brain for over a year and I never thought it would see the light of day. I can’t wait to share this message with all of you…

I honestly didn’t think I’d ever release music again. To be candid, I didn’t want to! Being sick changed me in some interesting ways…by the end of 2021 all I wanted to do was delete my social media, go off the grid as much as possible, and hide away in the woods with my pets and plants.

I was also really struggling with how much self-promotion I was seeing in the Christian music industry, and if I’m honest when I did venture back onto socials I had to unfollow or mute quite a few accounts. There’s a fine line between marketing and manipulation and my heart just grew weary of all the “gimmicks.” I began to feel gross about all of it and wasn’t sure if I wanted any part anymore.

And yet, here I am. It’s taken some time, but God has been rebuilding my perception of calling, stewardship, and ministry. I’m not here to get noticed, follow a formula, or exhaust myself with fleshly striving. I don’t want to obsess about the number of streams or views. Frankly I no longer have the energy for it! I felt like my instructions from the Lord were simple…release music in a way that’s sustainable, natural, and fun. 

The first of a series of monthly songs is yours, if you want it. 😉 It’s different than anything I’ve released before and I have NO idea what “category” it fits into, and that makes me happy. It was a spontaneous song the Lord gave me to release as seed in the ground, so I’m ready to sow and leave the rest to Him."

“Sow for yourselves righteousness;
Reap in mercy;
Break up your fallow ground,
For it is time to seek the Lord,
Till He comes and rains righteousness on You.”
- Hosea 10:12
