I used to live life to the fullest...in the wrong direction. I thought I had peace and joy in my heart and everything life had to offer materially...only to find out that I didn't have the love, peace, and joy that comes from God, to know what I was missing. I had no wisdom or spiritual discernment...I was just a fool. I thought wrong, I acted wrong, and I hurt many people in the process. Now, The Lord has taken a hold of me and has put our family through some life changing events including a cross country move and a terminal illness(ALS). He has changed my heart in a way I never thought imaginable. Think of the best day you've ever had...that is my life everyday...seriously! Sure, I get down. I get mad, I hurt, but I have my hope in Christ and every single day is a purpose filled adventure full of God's intervention and miraculous grace. Even when it's bad, it's still good. When no one around you understands what you are going through, You have to praise God for the honor of carrying your burden for the glory of Him...cause people are watching. Look at it in a positive light...He trusts you enough to test you and put you through the trial you are going through. You can fall apart, or you can perservere with His strength and let God build your character. The sooner I learned that...the easier everything got...but I'm still learning it daily as the trials get harder. Waking up every morning just to see what the Lord has in store for me that day, cannot be outdone by anything I used to chase after. It's only when you give up your old self and submit completely to The Lord that you realize you did not give up anything at all. You just CAN'T make anyone see that with mere words...that's my struggle. Just like Jesus said "He who has ears, let Him hear." The reason I'm sharing this music is NOT for positive comments and praise. I've been held down, left out, told I wasn't good enough, etc, etc. I've been lifted up and encouraged by so many "backyard musicians" that I am gonna praise and perhaps encourage someone to pick up an instrument and praise. I know this is what the Lord wants me to do on my own level. Keep praising...
