Misty is committed to pursuing the Lord by living in obedience to basic scriptural principles. “My focus is to go deep in the Scripture. To live out the first and great commandment to love God wholeheartedly, which leads to Jesus’ second commandment, to love others as ourselves, stay faithful in the place of prayer, fast more, give more, and live the Sermon on the Mount lifestyle to the highest degree, even in my weakness,” says Misty.
She has been actively writing songs since she was a teenager, and continues to grow in this art, while encouraging others to do the same. “I write songs by looking right at Jesus from my heart, and actually singing to a real person who is listening and moving at the sound of my voice,” she says. Through worship leading at conferences and her faithful years of leading in the prayer room, which is streamed live, 24/7, around the world, Edwards’ music has impacted thousands. She desires that in worship believers would encounter Jesus intimately: “I pray that the songs I write would bring people not only into an intellectual understanding, but a true heart connect with God, who is bending over the balcony of heaven listening to them singing words that move Him and impact Him.”
