Featuring eleven new songs such as Thank You, God Has a Blessing, Pharaoh, God Forgave Me, and Our Love Song, Nathan Best has this to say: "I am immersed with God Forgave Me. I feel that many people will be able to identify with the lyrics of this song, for the simple reason that, ALL of us have made mistakes in our lives." Center of My Life is packed with original gospel ballads and songs that offer contemporary jazz that bring about renewed hope and inspiration for the listener.
