But, the song is about the Spirit calling us who believe in Jesus to closer walks with our Lord. He is calling us to daily walks of faith and surrender to … Continue reading The Spirit Calling
This is a new song, which is a 4-part harmony hymn that the Lord gave me to write. This song, just like the others, is not for entertainment purposes, though. The singer is me, and I have an old voice that comes, and it goes. So, don’t listen for a great sound or recording, or … Continue reading Being Made Right

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. And, then she asked me, and the Lord led me to do that, although I had never written a tune for someone else before. And, the Lord gave me a tune for her song, and she accepted it. And, then we worked together for a week putting it all together.
It was wonderful working with Tosin on this song, too. Her grace, her patience, her understanding with me, as we tweaked and changed the lyrics around here and there, speaks volumes about her character, her love for Jesus, and her desire to please him in all that she does and is as a child of God and a believer in Jesus Christ. Thank you, Tosin! You have blessed my life!!

Pondering on the song, I was half expecting anyone to come back to me saying they had a tune, but in the wait, the Lord put in my heart the name of someone I follow here on WordPress. Sue Love. I had seen and listened to original songs the Lord had given her which she shares on her posts, so I understood why He would send me to her. 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…

by Martin Luther A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing; Our helper he, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing: For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe; His craft and power are great, and, armed with cruel hate, On earth is not his equal. Did we in our … Continue reading A Mighty Fortress is Our God
When life throws its curve balls at us, which it will, our natural reaction may be to immediately feel fear. Satan will use these occasions to try to get us to doubt God or to feel as though we are without resource. He will try to get us to feel as though our circumstances have … Continue reading Your Lord is With You
