To You, Lord

Just…listen  *

It’s a funny thing, living as a creative. It’s like a double-edged sword at times. On the one hand, I’m constantly dreaming. Ideas on top of ideas seem to stack up so fast I can barely get them written down or recorded. On the other hand, I’m constantly dreaming. Sometimes, the realities of ever-day life make it hard to nurture ideas. I have to constantly choose the battle: chase the dream or focus on reality. I spend a lot of late nights at a computer, when I should probably being sleeping in preparation for the next day’s professional demands. But somehow, I manage to cater to both lives.

Just once, I’d like to see what it’s like to devote every ounce of myself toward something I love, and to see that effort benefit my family. Just once.

I took a small break from writing, to put some new music out on Spotify, iTunes and YouTube. Deep House music has always held a special place in my heart since I was a kid. Back then, it was just called HOUSE. Now, the culture’s grown so big, there are different genres and sub-genres of the music. One can hardly keep up. All I know is, I know my genre when I hear it. King David danced all the way back into the city when he returned the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem. That brings me comfort, because I still love to dance…even if it is in private…or in the front row of my church, on Sunday morning. So I figured God would be okay with me praising Him in my own way.

I wrote a song to you, Lord. I hope you like it. I hope it makes you dance up there. I can’t wait to party with you, Jesus.
