About daniel

Follower of Christ, Author, Musician Though I have been a "Christian" for so many years, in many ways I feel life with Christ is a quest in with many troubles and dangers. It is frightfully more dangerous than anyone ever told me at the outset. Any "true" adventure would be, wouldn't it? This blog is about the adventure of discovery in this quest to follow the one who forged the path to life and true love so many years ago. I have found that the epic rescuing story of Jesus is far more relevant to you and I than we give it credit.

Love Love Love [Official Music Video]

This months song of the month is a playful, upbeat, and romantic love song about how my wife Catherine and I met & married. Enjoy!

I am releasing this version of this song on the 23rd anniversary of when we first met and a week prior to our 19th wedding anniversary on July 7th. Catherine has been my saving grace and she is my best friend. We still spend time exhausting every thought late into the night and I love it. I love sharing my life with this gem of a human being and I mean that very sincerely.

Lyrics

our hands touched as we sat on the grass in the park,
on that fourth of july after dark
and the fire in the sky, could not compare,
with the fire that lit up my life
you looked to me and our destiny flashed before my eyes
of how it could be, how it could be, just you and me

holding hands in the forest with our maker before us,
we took our solemn vows
for the first time i knew, that me and you
would never be apart
oh there’s someone to share every joy every care
someone to lean on and trust
and to love love love (someone to love) mmmmmm

if i could live ten thousand lives,
i’d spend every one of them with you by my side
you bring me so much joy and life
a universe opened wide

and now when our daughter keeps on asking for water
long past her time for bed
crying “papa” at midnight, i’ll help her to sleep tight
so you can rest your head
i hope that you dream of lovely things, and what our future holds
i know it is love, love, love, i know it is love

if i could live ten thousand lives,
i’d spend every one of them with you by my side
you bring me so much joy and life
a universe opened wide
you’re an endless holiday, an angel of God’s grace
you have filled my life with love love love

remember how we would talk, exhausting every thought
late into the night
you gave me, sparkling and dreams
& someone to hold thru the night… and so much love love love

Ohhhh love love love

I Am Loved

“Surprised by hope this holy Light now dances in my soul…”

These are the opening lyrics that sprang into my mind as I was a block away from my house. “Good timing, inspiration!” The opening riff just stumbled off my fingers as I played my drop D tuned guitar and the song came together like magic.

Have you ever been surprised by hope? Has joy unspeakable and full of glory ever snuck up on you and ambushed you when you least expected?

These are healing moments when you finally and fully align with the present moment where God’s complete salvation abides. You are home in the love of the Father. You are loved by the One in whom you live and move and have your being.

“Nothing in the universe can change your love for me
Enfolded in your family, a child of the King”

I really wanted to include something in this song about being in God’s family and my wife and I were both led to read Romans 8. As we read it together in The Passion Translation, the phrase “enfolded in the family” jumped out.

“That’s it!” I exclaimed.

Originally I had written Nothing in the universe can take your love from me. Papa corrected me and said, “No, say ‘change’ instead of ‘take’. That’s what I want to say to my kids.

Lyrics:

Surprised by hope this holy Light now dances in my soul
You reached out when I was caught, in an undertow
You pulled me up to where you are, so I will always know
I am loved, I am loved

You carried me when I was weak, I could not help myself
You promised me you’d never leave, even in my hell
When I lose sight of who you are, you’re always here to tell me
I’m loved, I am loved

Nothing in the universe can change your love for me
Enfolded in your family, a child of the King (2x)
I am, I am, I am loved

You began a beautiful work inside of me
So I will lean upon your Grace until it is complete
A new creation I am made, I’m choosing to believe
I am loved, I am loved

Nothing in the universe can change your love for me
Enfolded in your family, a child of the King (2x)
I am, I am, I am loved

After a long season of darkness and cold, the days start to warm and the light lasts longer, things begin to grow and the world is full of new life again.  In this season of trial now more than ever we need hope.  Hope that God is on the job and that all His promises are Yes and Amen. 

As we recorded this song for you this month, we sang it as both a cry and a declaration.  He will make all things new and bring light to all that is dark.  He will refresh us with His presence and we will rise as sons and daughters of the King of Kings.

Lyrics:

You make all things new, You make all things new
Like the dawn breaking after the night
You make all things new, You make all things new
We are drawn to your beauty and light
To your love

We are made a new creation, as we receive your salvation
You’ve come down, and live now in us
Now One with our Creator, partakers of your Nature
You conform us to your Son
In your love

Just like the wildflowers springing from the desert
When the latter rains fall to the earth
Your sons and your daughters will rise with love’s power
When your presence drenches your church
With your love
With your love

We are made a new creation…

You make all things new…

LYRICS: 

Hide away from the darkness
Hide away from the pain
Try to escape all that’s heartless,
But it seems a waiting game

I’ve been running for a while now
I’ve been running on my own
Heart’s been aching for a while now
Ever since I left home

CHORUS:

So I’m coming home,
I’m coming home
I’m longing for belonging
I’m longing for a home

I’m a mixed juxtaposition
A puzzle piece out of place
And I don’t have a recognition
of where I fit into this space

I can’t check any of your boxes
Don’t want the ditch on either side
My heart feels full of paradoxes
But I’m okay with this collide

(CHORUS)

In the heart of my Father
I am complete
I have no need to wander
For I have found Peace

In the heart of my Father (x4)

In the heart of my Father
I have found homecreditsreleased March 1, 2020

Just Hold On – A Song of Hope from Reflect

The darkness is no match for the Light!

“Life came into being because of him,
for his life is light for all humanity.
And this Living Expression is the Light that bursts through gloom—
the Light that darkness could not diminish”

John 1:4-5 TPT

One day Jesus “will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” (Revelation 21:4 NLT)

When I read this Scripture I realized that Jesus has a solution for every pain! Jesus resolves our every fear! Honestly, I had been worrying about the future world my children would experience. I was very alarmed as I was discovering more ways the enemy has been waging war against us on every front.

The fear finally broke from my heart and I wept at the thought that Jesus really does have us all taken care of! Our future is secure in Christ!

Jesus will will truly make everything sad come untrue!

“Gandalf! I thought you were dead! But then I thought I was dead myself. Is everything sad going to come untrue? What’s happened to the world?”
A great Shadow has departed,” said Gandalf, and then he laughed and the sound was like music, or like water in a parched land; and as he listened the thought came to Sam that he had not heard laughter, the pure sound of merriment, for days upon days without count.”

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

lyrics

When you don’t see a chance for change
In the forecast of your mental state
A stranded mind your status quo
Emotions rage like a tornado

Just hold on
One day all wrong will one day be put right
Just hold on
The darkness is no match for Light

When Hope just seems a mocking voice
And the last thing you’d expect is Joy
When you’re hanging by a thread
Mass confusion ringing in your head

Just hold on
One day all wrong will one day be put right
Just hold on
The darkness is no match for Light

No fear does not define you
Let the Peace of Christ refine you
He’ll unravel the doubt within you
Make everything sad in you life,
In your heart, come untrue!

Just hold on
One day all wrong will one day be put right
Just hold on
The darkness is no match for Light

(Recorded in 528 Hz Love Frequency)
