These songs are a glimpse into my heart as I have struggled through a few hardships in my life growing stronger in my relationship with the Lord. The Lord has allowed me to write in song about my struggles, my questions, my revelations, His promises to me…God is good!! It’s a crazy thing to think about!
My first song recorded was Hope For Me And You. I wrote this song during a period of time in my life that I was discovering who I was without being able to do the very thing I believed I was created to do…I was hurt, disappointed, confused, sad but I knew that I knew, that when it was all said and done, everything was going to be alright because God was ordering my steps.
Don’t Turn Me Away was my next song recorded. I was a young mother when I wrote this song and I could feel God’s Spirit calling to me to draw nearer to Him. I sat down and penned this song and it rested on a clip board for about 13 years when I found it stashed away with my music memorabilia. I decided to bring it out and see what Rob (he mixes the tracks) and I could do with it. It’s my husband’s favorite song.
My God and Joy were recorded next. All I can remember is Joy was inspired by that song I sung as a child, “I’ve got the joy, joy, joy ,joy down in my heart…down in my heart to stay!” And My God was written from discovering God’s acceptance of me no matter what….He’s just bigger than all of that and His love is true for us.
No One Else and Enough were written as I realized that Jesus is all I need. He’s my anchor, my hope, my strength…His grace is sufficient.
No Other Name was written when Rob challenged me to write something in a 3/4 time signature….like a waltz…1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3…get the picture? Anyway, I sang a song I knew in 3/4 time and then I wrote a song to go with it. It flowed right into No Other Name. I was inspired by how Jesus’ name is above ALL names….respected and honored by all one day…even the demons shudder at the mention of Jesus’ name. There’s power in His name!
Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and songs come to me. That’s the case with I Wonder and It Changes My Life. I Wonder was a result of someone I was praying for at the time (and still do) and I would lie awake and wonder about this person and pray that one day soon he would know how much God loves him. It Changes My Life is another night lying awake but this time feeling so blessed and grateful and how being in HIS presence is life changing.
Why Jesus and Because I Know were written after being inspired by hearing my Pastor preach and the arrows of God’s word pierced my heart and allowed me to see more of HIM and revealed another section of my heart that needed healing.
No Mountain was written after my Pastor challenged me to write a song to celebrate our church’s 20th year since being established. At the time Pastor was doing a series of messages about trusting God when you see a mountain in front of you…the theme of the celebration was God’s love, His acceptance and His forgiveness…so I went to work and asked God to help me write a song. God is so good!!! He’s just so good!
I’m excited to tell you that I have another CD in the making. I am currently working on my 6th song and God is giving me ideas I just need to spend time pulling them altogether so this project can be completed soon. The songs on this CD are inspired by my life experiences and friends’ experiences with whom I’ve walked. I pray you will be encouraged. God is good!
