Another song off my record, “My Praise” – the second of two projects I put together and am selling to raise funds for marriage counseling, for some couple or couples I may never meet. 🙂 You can read about it here:
I wrote this song on a retreat, while sitting in my dorm room. I had just returned from spending time in a vineyard, reflecting on the glory of Christ, the true vine. I returned to my room, and read Psalm 45. Specifically Psalm 45:1
My heart is stirred by a noble theme
as I recite my verses for the king;
my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer.
This song, a love song to Jesus, came from this verse. And the retreat – it was ALL about the love of Christ. Sure, we all hear that, we all get that – but I argue, no we don’t. I was raised in a home that subscribed to a religion of “works”, of behavior-based acceptance. But never really learned what the love of God meant. So while I know that – it STILL struggle with that in my heart from time to time. Hence the line, “I don’t understand this love”. I don’t. But you know what? I will accept it anyway. As much as I’ll mess up, and even mess up accepting His love – I will receive it.
My heart is stirred by a noble theme. I will recite verses for You, my King…
As I mentioned in the other posts, I am selling this record to raise money for marriage counseling. Please prayerfully consider giving to this cause, to save maybe just ONE marriage. You can buy my music here:
Or, if you like, you can donate directly to the ministry here:
I have a goal to raise $1000, and I will match that dollar for dollar. As of today, we are at $1632, counting my match. Will you help me obtain this goal?
I love you!
