I’m writing you today on one hand filled with much excitement. Over a year ago I started a project. The idea was to write songs based on scriptures that I wanted to make sure my son would know. If something happened to me what are the scriptures that I’d want him to learn and be aware of? So, I made a list and I started writing songs about those scriptures and Biblical truths. God’s Word is nothing new. It’s been around for thousands of years. God’s Word is not by accident, each word was crafted and inspired with every detail thought through. For a Christian the Bible is a must. It is where we learn how to live. It’s where we get instruction for what to do. The Bible is eternal and it was written for all of us. Young and old, Mature and Baby Christians, even those who haven’t called on the name of the Lord to be saved can learn how to be saved with the truth of God’s Word.
I’m excited because “Roots for the Journey” is finally a reality. Today is release day. Woo hoo….party….jump up and down! Finally I’m happy that all of you can finally hear this music. This record I believe has a greater story then what is just captured within the minutes of each song. The album is filled with God’s Word. That is what it’s all about. The music is way different from anything you’ve heard from me in a long time. Acoustics: unplugged, organic, and simple. This record is filled with hope and trust. Already in my life I’ve been able to share these songs with someone who needed a specific scripture to stand on as they face the mountains in their life. I believe this is only the beginning. Even as I write this morning saddened because of the realization of all the devastation and lives lost that happened in Oklahoma yesterday, I realize that God’s timing is perfect. Several of these songs fit that situation. Of of them is the song “Safe”. Yesterday the video premiered on http://www.newreleasetuesday.com and today that same site starts a FREE DOWNLOAD of the song http://www.newreleasetuesday.com/freemusic.php Go get it, spread the word to anyone you know who can benefit. Those “plans” were made before anything happened yesterday. We make our plans in life but it is God who directs us. I believe it’s by no accident that today as so many people wake up shaken from the events “Safe” is a song that can speak to their nerves and remind them they are in God’s hands. This is only the beginning. “Roots for the Journey” is all about speaking God’s Word over your life. Reminding yourself of what the Bible says about you and your life, not just what your reality is. As you sing along in faith I know the mountains of your life can move and fall into the sea. Please, please, please take a moment to consider this music for you, your family and your friends. I can’t wait to see how these songs continue to fit hand in hand with life. God is so cool. His promises are for us today just as much as the day they were written in the Bible. God’s Word is the roots for the journey that we need.
