Love Story written in Song – Pray for Joey+Rory

Joey Martin and Rory Feek (Joey+Rory) are a country duet, but much, much more than that, they are a real, true-to-life, love story. Recently, I’ve been praying for them, binge reading their blog, and listening to their songs. Joey is in a battle for her life, fighting to see each new day, staying strong for her husband and darling little two-year-old daughter, Indiana.

And as I listen to their songs, I realize that their amazing love story is all written in the songs that Rory writes and Joey sings. The experience of saying goodbye to someone you love, the yearning for a loved one after they’re gone, the simple farmhouse life they come from, and the places they’ve gone.
While I’m writing, Joey sings The Life of a Song. In it, she wishes she could change the world through a song. Her song lives forever, and as she says, it never dies, it touches many lives. Joey may not know it, but she IS living the life of a song.
If you’re not praying for her and her family, please ask God for a blessing on their behalf. God is the God of miracles and most of all, the God of love. I’ve been reliving their journey through their blog and Facebook page, thanks to Rory, the writer and husband who loves his wife as Christ loves his church. Every word, every picture, every video he posts speaks of his great love and care for his wife. I don’t know about you, but every woman is blessed to be loved like that–and you know what? We are, because we are loved by our God, more than we can ever know.
Here is a picture of the two lovers starting their fantastic journey. The wonder and excitement of touching so many lives is in their eyes.

CMA week has been busy… now we’re flying to Europe! We’re playing shows in Scotland and Ireland this week.

Every day she is here with us is a miracle, but someday, she will fly away, free as a bird. Her life and legacy stays with us forever, not only in a three minute song, but in the chords of our hearts. She asks, “If I were to leave here tomorrow, would you remember me?”

What Was by Rachelle Ayala
[dedicated to Joey Martin Feek]

Before there was ever a song
there was love.
Before there was ever a story
there was love.
Before there was ever a life
there was love.
And before there was love
there is GOD.

Joey+Rory’s newest album is out with the Hymns that are so meaningful to them debuted on Billboard’s #1 for Country Album as well as #1 Christian Album. To God be the Glory!
