What music is all about for me and why I love to worship.
Music for me is about pouring out our hearts to God and giving Him praise and glory. It's about creating a moment where we reflect on His wonder and invite His presence into our lives in a deeper and greater measure.
There is nothing else like experiencing the presence and power of God through song and worship. Everything we have or are able to do comes from God. We should use those gifts to praise His mighty name and do His will here on earth. As children of God, we are called to shine His light through the darkness and reach those that are lost with the good news of the Gospel.
Before I was a follower of Christ, I tired to use music and worldly pursuits in an attempt to find happiness and purpose. I discovered first hand that there is only one way to have true peace that passes all understanding, and that is through a true relationship with Jesus Christ. I know what it is to go from dark to light, from death to life, and it is my desire to share my testimony of God's amazing mercy and grace with anyone who will listen. It's not a religion, it's a relationship. I can witness first hand that God is not only real, but that He desires a personal relationship with you.
For some reading this you may know God closely and I hope these songs help you reflect on Him even more and grow in your relationship with Him. Others reading this may not know God at all, or even wonder if He is real. There is so much overwhelming evidence of Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead and tons of resources that are available to help you learn why the existence of God and the truth of the Bible must be real. The evidence is insurmountable. I will post some links at the bottom of this page that may be helpful. The best evidence I can offer you though is my own first hand experience. I can tell you that God has done the most amazing things in my life and that He blows my mind constantly with new and amazing things. He is always there for me and never leaves me. If you knew me before, you would believe me now, there is nothing that God can't do. No past to horrible or mistake to great. The blood of Jesus can wash all those sins away and bring you into a relationship with your Creator, the Holy Righteous and loving God of the universe. Don't wait for tomorrow, tomorrow is not promised and you may only have this day.
All you have to do is invite Jesus into your life and ask Him to be Your Lord and Savior. If you seek God with a true and authentic heart then I believe you will come to know and experience the miracle of His amazing love, a love that I am covered with everyday. This love is what motivates me to share and reach others. I am praying that countless others will get to experience this salvation and abundant life that I have been so graciously blessed with. I hope the music I sing and play helps you to encounter God more and brings you closer to His presence.
