New Year – New Beginnings

Goodbye 2016, hello 2017. A new year is beginning; new mercies, new goals, new opportunities, and so much more. As many do, I like to take time to reflect on what the past year has taught me, using that as fuel to energize and strengthen me for the coming year. The Lord did many amazing works in my life this past year and I am excited to see how He will work out His will in 2017. He gave grace when it was undeserved, strength when it was not asked for, faith when there was faltering, and hope in the midst of despondency. He is a faithful God. He is a loving Savior. He is an ever present Comfort.

In accordance with His will, and in spite of a very busy schedule, the Lord continued to give me lyrics and melodies which will be copyrighted and hopefully recorded by the end of 2017. Prayers would be appreciated for:

1. Time. I cannot stress enough how much time is needed in order to hear direction from the Lord and to move according to His time table. Work has been especially busy this past semester but in spite of that, I was able to make time and will strive to continue to do so.

2. Direction. Putting together an album, as I am coming to find out, is very involved and there are a plethora of decisions that I will be and am already starting to come across. Wisdom is needed!

3. Resources. God always provides whenever it is His will we are seeking and pursuing. I am trusting that along this journey, whether it be the copyrighting, the recording, the labeling, or the distribution, that we will see our faithful Father’s hand at work.

I look forward to sharing more songs in 2017.
