When I Think About the Lord

Just saying thank You, Jesus! If we don't praise Him...the rocks will cry out.

If You're Not (featuring Slim DSM)

I have a few friends that doubt that God exists. I have no hard answers for them (since they don't believe scripture) except that I know, without a doubt because of what He's done for me. 

This song was a collaboration with my wonderful friend Slim DSM about two very different people--I don't doubt God and His presence and plan in my life, He is skeptical and struggles with belief. These are our feelings, raw and unfiltered. 

If you're a doubter, speak to God, you may be surprised by His loving, gentle answers. <3


"In my distress I called upon the Lord, And cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, And my cry came before Him, even to His ears." Psalm 18:6

Psalm 63

The words of this song came from my heart after reading Psalm 63. I felt like these are the words of someone who is so in love with God, yet so overwhelmed with the things happening in his life at the time of writing the Psalm. Like David, you and I face trials, while in the midst of them we should trust God, focus on Him, take His hand, and allow Him to lead us. He is our help and will always fight our battles.

Behold The Lamb

My good friend Alfredo Alvarado wrote some lyrics to the Lord. He asked me to put them to music. The song is raw thoughts from him to God.

For Jenny...

Oh, my God, nice to know You
I've been holding on
To You
So long, never fail me
I believe in You 

I can see beyond the circumstances staring in my face
And I must say that I believe Your word
And even though the clouds are dark and rolling in and hover over me
I still believe and live in all You say to me

Oh, my God, nice to trust You
I'll keep holding on
To You
And Your power, Your commitment
Still holds true, I see you 

His banner over me is love
It declares that You hold me, complete me, restore me
Forgive me, You feel me, You see me, You heal me

My sister has MS. It is a heartbreaking thing to see someone who was once so full of life bedridden and unable to speak. Since she cannot speak, I speak for her. I declare these words of faith for her. God has encouraged me to continue praying despite how things may look and I believe Him. I believe every promise of healing and restoration. The "dark clouds" or trials of life may roll in and hover, but I know the God who made the clouds and just as He made those dark clouds, He made the rain that comes from them and uses that rain to replenish the earth. He uses ALL THINGS for my good. That is trust. That is belief. Praise God! 

"...rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer..." Rom. 12:12

Exalt The Lord

This one isn't mine. It's Rick Ridings'.
It was in my head tonight... 

" Exalt the LORD our God, And worship at His footstool--He [is] holy." Ps. 99:5 NKJV
