About a week ago Tosin, of Alethea’s Mind Blog, wrote a poem which she believed was to be a song, so she put out an appeal for someone to come up with a tune for her song.

Now here is one thing: I did not know much about her apart from the things she has shared about herself on her blog, but one thing I was certain of is her desire to follow…

So, four days ago the Lord Jesus led me to begin to write a new song. Now, that is not a simple task, even for a song that is home recorded, or especially for a song that is amateurishly home recorded, whatever the case may be. For, this one took four days to write from … Continue reading Unshakably

Sometimes in our lives we have days when we are not as chipper as we normally are. We don’t feel well, or someone has done something to us to hurt us, or things are just generally going bad for us. So, we may begin to focus on the negative rather than on the positive, thus … Continue reading His Song is With Me
