New Year. New Lists.

Last year on this day, I made a list of what I wanted to accomplish in 2016.
The first thing I wrote:
Record and release an album.

Rachel and I each made our lists. I shared mine and we discussed that God would have to make it happen because we didn’t have the time (or resources) to make a record that year.

Through a series of really crazy events, it happened. God came through. People lined up to help. I was able to make a record that I’m really proud of.

Psalm 37:4 says “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.”

I think this is true, but it’s the verses around it that bring this verse to life.
Verse 3 – Trust in Him and enjoy His presence.
Verse 5 – Commit your way to Him
Verse 6 – He will make your righteousness shine
Verse 7 – Be still before Him and (this is the hard part) BE PATIENT.

The lesson learned for me was to align my will with His will. Things started happening immediately after that. Through prayer and patience, I caught His vision for my year and my music.

A big “thank you” to all who helped me, prayed for me, and pushed me to carry out a very big dream.

Here’s to big things in 2017!
Don’t give up on your list!
