After making a huge leap of faith and following God’s call to move to Nashville and pursue a music career, Jordan Feliz found tremendous success. His debut record & single, The River were breakout hits – surpassing anything he could have hoped for.

But Jordan found the season following the debut album to be something he never expected either – he battled expectations, comparisons, and anxiety. In short, he says he was absolutely miserable.

“I think one thing people forget sometimes is that I’m still human! And I still feel the same pressures everybody else feels on a daily basis with their jobs. You can talk to any pastor about specific times when ministry can kind of become a lot of work.”

“There comes to be a large expectation on your life, and I think I’d never had that. I was just a dude that moved from California, and I really wanted to tell people about Jesus. And all of a sudden it worked! And I was given everything I had ever dreamed of, but I was miserable. Because I just was not ready. I was not mentally or spiritually or emotionally ready to be ripped away from my family for 300 days a year. All of a sudden it’s like I’m never sleeping in my own bed. I’m never in my house.”

In a sense, the support system that had always been there was disconnected just when he needed it most.

“You’re just completely like a replanted tree that is now in the desert. And I realized that the desert is only fruitful if I have faith in my provider. And the moment I felt like I was able to remember that we have a God who wants our weight, He wants our pain, He wants our suffering, He wants all of that – He wants us to run to Him and say, ‘I cannot do this. I can’t. I can’t do this without you.'”

“And the moment I did that, He just took everything away from me. And, all of a sudden, I felt like He was saying, ‘Now, share everything. Just tell everybody about everything. Tell them about all the things that you’re scared to talk about.'”
