Lauren Daigle Performs ‘Be Okay’ for Israel
One of the biggest names in Christian music, Lauren Daigle, used her time on stage at the Dove Awards to sing a song, “Be Okay,” in support of and encouragement for the nation of Israel following the deadly, unprovoked terrorist acts in the Middle Eastern country.
The Middle East has, for thousands of years, been a hotbed of bitter disagreement, discord, and deadly violence. Groups throughout history have threatened and even attempted to wipe the Jewish people and the nation of Israel off the face of the Earth. The unjustified and wholly unprovoked deadly October 7 attack on the tiny Jewish state demonstrates that hate toward the Jewish people is still very much alive.
In a clip posted on YouTube, Lauren Daigle addressed her peers at the Dove Awards, speaking on the attacks on Israel. She urged everyone to open their eyes to “what God may be calling us to.”
After speaking to the crowd, Lauren gave a heartfelt and moving performance. She sang “Be Okay,” a tune with an uplifting and positive message, encouraging people to continue fighting and going on even in the face of trials and hardships.
“You’re gonna be alright
Darling, you’re gonna be alright
‘Cause the stars keep on shining through the darkest night
And you can know you’re gonna be alright”
Before her performance, Lauren encouraged all to share the good news and the love of the Gospel, to not shrink back from a fight, but instead speak up.
“We have the hope of eternity and the good news of the Gospel,” she said. “We aren’t bringing in messages that tear and divide. We’re bringing in messages that remind people of their worth, that remind children they are valuable, that they belong in society.”
Lauren ended her comments by stating that she and other Christians have been blessed with the responsibility and the opportunity to share the message of Christ with others.
“And I’ve been thinking, ‘God, how do I get these people prepared?’” she said. “We get to be a part of that number, that get to prepare the other people that are coming in to say, ‘What is it that Christianity actually has to offer? What is it?’ We get to be the ones to say, ‘There’s something greater. There’s something greater. His name is Jesus.’”
Romans 1:16: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God to the salvation to everyone that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
