CLOSE TO YOU
A collection of praises, prayers & reflections.
1. Power in Your Name
This song is about saying the name of Jesus in our day-to-day lives. Would our endeavors be more effective if we did this more?
2. I Believe in the Lord
An uptempo statement of faith and a starting point for anyone adopting the worldview of Jesus.
3. Jesus Living in Me
The world says we must overcome our issues with our own stregnth. But is it not Jesus living in us that will actually make true change?
4. Loved Me Still
A worship song to recognize God for his infinite love. It includes a custom arranged "Create in Me a Clean Heart" as a reprise.
5. The Lord's Been Good to Me
As we go through really difficult stuff in life, it can become so easy to think that we are not blessed or favored of God. But we are!
I believe this is the very first song I ever wrote... It's a worship song giving praise to God that there is truly no one else like Him.
7. This and More
We can trust God in His grace to hear our prayers. We know He is faithful. When we are faithful, we can surely ask much of Him.
8. Close to You
This is a worship song. Using scriptual conncepts it talks about who God is to us and our corporate response as the Church.
9. Lord Awake My Soul
This is only song that's a hymn on this album. It's a prayer, inviting God to come influence the different spheres of our being.
10. Just to Know You
This song explores how far we should actually go to know God as it points to the examples of different heros of faith in the bible.
SONGS FOR THE WEARY
These songs helped me release many burdens.
1. Everything In You
As we offer value to the world, we must be careful not to derive our own worth from what we do or become in this life. God gives us worth.
This song uses the definition of faith in Hebrews 11 to answer the question: "Should we wait for affiramtion before we 'have faith'"?
3. Graced Based
This song goes into one of my greatest hardships as an early believer. Writing this helped me make a transition into a theology based on grace.
4. Making Me Whole
The work God does inside us is progressive. As we open ourselves up to Him, we can continually see radical change.
During a very difficult low period in my life, I a felt I was receiving encouraging word from God. This song was birthed from that word.
It can actually be very hard to accept gifts. Some days it's still hard to accept that I can't do anything to improve my standing with God.
7. Was My Sacrifice Not Good Enough?
The suffering of the Christ's sacrifice was a free gift to us. If we try to prove anything through works, are we not rejecting his gift?
8. Wound Me
God says he prunes us like a tree so we can flourish. The act of pruning is rather violent thought isn't it? How is that okay?
9. The Coconut Song
Two small churches that believe the same will be one block away from each other and meet at the same time of day... separately. Why?
10. I Surrender All (Over and Over Again)
A unique arrangement of the classic hymn with an original outro.
I’m focusing on the two albums above but there are many more songs to come!
For each song I release, I want to share a unique perspective or lesson found in the lyrics. These videos will bring context to the message of each song and to help start relevant internal (and hopefully external) faith conversations.
