What a year it has been!!!
As I consider all that has happened and transpired in 2013, I am left with one simple feeling… thankful!
Looking back there are a few things that stand out to me. For starters… a hockey knee injury hindered my ability to run consistently everyday this year. This is a HUGE deal as I am one of the rare people out there that LOVE running everyday. Sadly I started gaining weight as a result of this and that was a disappointment. Thankfully for a brief time, I discovered mountain biking and also found that I ride and ride hard without any pain to my injured knee… but, sadly in August I had another slight accident riding and once again found myself struggling with that same knee pain again.
Another thing that comes to mind is an issue that I believe is slowly coming under submission and that is ‘fear.’ I won’t go into detail as to what exactly was happening… but, I will say fear had a hold of me often in 2013. Now I know some of you might be extremely concerned and note that “worry, or fear is sin” and… I believe that to be true… but let’s get real and get off our high horse and admit we all struggle sometimes, even the best of us. I am just being transparent here and noting that this was a reality for me in 2013 and I am giving it all to God and trusting in Him at level never before achieved. Will I worry again? Maybe… but I am growing in the reality that God is bigger than all my fears and that’s where freedom lies!
“As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is tried; He is a buckler to all them that trust in Him.” 2 Samuel 22:31
God is GOOD!!!
Lastly… I am excited to announce the release of 3 totally FREE downloads featuring the KVBand. The KVBand consists of myself on vocal and guitar, Barry Edwards on electric guitar, Doug Wollman on keys, Mike Morgan on bass and Stuart Jenner on drums. In my humble opinion, these guys are the BEST musicians on the planet… and we called our style of music, AMBIENT FLOW WORSHIP (Stuart Jenner came up with that description and I think it’s perfect)!
I personally encourage you to download these releases! I believe whole-heartedly you’ll be blessed… and just so you know, I am blessed hearing them… and I rarely like any recordings I am on!!! So that’s saying something!!!
Here’s to 2014!!! For me… I feel a HUGE change coming on and although I don’t care for change… I believe God is up to something!
Grace & Peace…
