0 Trust In Him At All Times

It is easy to trust in God in the good times when life is easy, but often difficult when trials or tragedy strikes. But it says to “trust in him at all times.” Let us pour out our hearts to him and find hope and strength in his sure foundation. Let us not be shaken when disaster strikes. Please continue to pray and lift up those devastated by this attack!

Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. Psalm 62:5-8 NIV

Please join me and pray for those in Boston who lost their lives or were injured by this senseless violence, and lift up their loved ones in prayer. We ask, God, that you would give them your peace which surpasses understanding even in the midst of this tragedy.

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:7

Weeping with those who weep. Praying that God will wrap his arms around them and be their Comforter.

You who are my Comforter in sorrow, my heart is faint within me.
Jeremiah 8:18 NIV

0 Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Live at Insomnia with Nick and Tanner (07/31/2010)

In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day here is my song “Green” performed live at Insomnia with Nick & Tanner. The song warns us not to always look for where things & people promise “the grass is greener on the other side”. A studio recording of this song can be found on my CD Don’t Look Back.

Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away. Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:1-4 NIV)



Been flirting with disaster
Skirting little too close to the edge
Foolish things I’ve been chasing after
Have gone and placed the noose ’round my head
Thought they’d bring me pleasure
But I’ve found out to my discontent
That satisfaction comes in equal measure
With guilt and shame and death in the end

Grass is greener on the other side
So they say, so they say, but I don’t trust it
Maybe if you’re looking through green glass
But flowers pass, they fade away before you know it
The moments all just fly by so fast
And then they’re gone away

Been looking for some greener pasture
Like a wandering sheep, from your side I’ve strayed
But withered grass is poor cure
For this longing ache, your love I crave
Still my eyes are green with envy
For I’ve seen the riches of wicked men
Flourish like green trees in summer’s safety
Though they’ll perish come winter’s wind

No, the things of this world
Can’t take them with you, they won’t last
Just persevere under trial, stand fast
And you’ll wear a crown of life

James 1:9-15; Psalm 23; 37:1-13,35-36; 49:16-17; 119:37,176

Inspiration & Overview

I wrote this song on November 3, 2012 after being inspired by Cliff Graham‘s amazing book, “Day of War,” which is a fictional account of the battles and life of David and his mighty men. They are currently working on turning his book into an epic movie, and the action filled sequences from the pre-visualization work they have done helped inspire the tone and theme for this song. My dad turned me on to the books as he spent several weeks this past summer at the YWAM base in Kona working on the engineering plans and building of the new studio where the movie for “Day of War” will be produced. David L. Cunningham, who also directed the movie “To End All Wars,” will be producing and directing, along with screenwriter John Fusco, who penned the script for “Hidalgo.” You can check out more about the books and movie here:
