Is this a thought? Or is it God’s will?


We all have that moment, where we have a thought. We aren’t sure if the thought is “just some crazy idea” or is it “God’s will”. You may have had this thought a few weeks ago, or a few years ago. The Point is, the thought was there and now it more then likely isn’t.

A great example is http://www.thnkwater.com, when Chris Webb had that thought. He had to decide if it was just a good idea or if it was the very will of God. In 26 days his water campaign raised $2333.00 forever changing the lives of over 100 people. What if Chris would have decided that it was just some silly idea and through the idea out? These 100 people would still live drinking filthy water every single day.

Another example is http://www.toms.com/ for every pair of shoes bought from this website a pair of shoes is given to a child in need “One for One”. What if Tom decided that this was a crazy idea and discounted the whole thing? There would be a lot of shoeless children.

Take David and Ali Graham’s situation. They had felt the Lord calling them to adopt. Time went by with much prayer and the fight between”God’s vision for us” and “Our vision for us” commenced. A few months ago The Graham’s decided to listen to the voice of God and adopt Sarah Rosemarie Graham. They have provided a new life for a child who would have otherwise had a not so love filled life.

So my challenge is this. Take that thought, that idea and really ask God if it’s from him. If so run with it, and I know in all certainty that you will touch so many lives for the kingdom of God, that in hindsight you will thank God that you listened and that the lives of others will be changed forever. After all, God’s plan is to bless others and make sacrifices that glorify Him.

There are many Biblical examples and also many real life examples. The truth of the matter is that God has told you something at some point in your life and you either chose to do it or not. So what is it? Will you revisit the vision he has given you?

Let us have a humble and giving heart


A few years back the Lord really stirred me up inside. I have always been a musician and my main goal was getting popular and selling hit songs. I still remember the day that the Lord told me “I want you to write music for me and give the money away”. I was shocked, this mindset of giving and having a humble heart was new to me. After a few months of fighting I finally submitted and allowed the Lord to begin changing me.

Soon enough a good friend and I started a ministry called “Project Belize”. I wrote a Electronica album, my buddy Chris Webb created a Logo, website, and had shirts made. We set up camp  at our church and was astonished by the response. People came up left and right to purchase the items and soon we were raising money. We started with nothing, and over time we raised nearly $700.00 to give to assist in building churches in Belize! This was my first dose of humility, but the Lord changed my heart in too many ways to describe! He has given me a heart to reach out and bless others! About a year ago I began working on writing more music. Over the course of a few months I noticed my frustration growing larger and larger. I was trying to write music from my personal perspective and I could feel the holy spirit saying “David, stop! This isn’t my will for you”. Of course I was pretty confused at first. I knew music is a talent that I do have, and for me to just stop music all together just didn’t sit right. I missed the point completely.  The Lord was calling me to write music composed from only his word.

Soon after “The Word Composed” was born and the songs began to be created. I recently watched a video on a blog that moved me. These Christians show and share their humble and giving heart’s by blessing others! It’s a must watch! Here’s the link: http://lethoperise.com/2011/12/11/1441/

I want to give like these people gave. Not only to the community but to the world. Please pray and search your heart for ways that the Lord can use you at this capacity. I am right there with you, praying that he will reveal the same vision in my life.

 Here is the song I just released on iTunes. It’s straight from Revelation 5. I hope it blesses you!

Whom shall I fear? Trusting in the “I will” of God.


20111202-111616.jpg

Life comes at us at full force. Bills stack up, as life throws curve ball after curve ball. These situations cause us to make 1 of 3 choices:

1.) Freak out, get scared and worry about everything.
2.) Ignore it and hope that everything gets better.
3.) Trust in God that he will provide our needs according to his glory.

In all honesty, I can say that numbers 1 and 2 are very common to me. I frequently find myself in the shadow of fear while deciding to ignore the reality of my life. I watch my life crumble as the devil chuckles in the background. Is this situation common to you? When the situation seems hopeless what do you do? Did you know that this is the very situation that God wants to be Lord of? Did you know that he is called Lord for a reason?

Isaiah 41:10-13
10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

11 “All who rage against you
will surely be ashamed and disgraced;
those who oppose you
will be as nothing and perish.
12 Though you search for your enemies,
you will not find them.
Those who wage war against you
will be as nothing at all.
13 For I am the LORD your God
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
I will help you.

We have to understand that when God says “I will” he means it. He doesn’t say “If you do this, that, and this. I might…” God says “I will”. So remember, it’s about Faith not works so that no one can boast. How can we choose to remain in this unfaithful state of mind? Where God is light-years away and we scramble for some material way to make our situation better.

Will we choose to trust God in everything today? Will we trust him that he will be with us and he will help us through this life? This decision to trust in God is what touches his heart the most. He wants us to give ourselves fully so that he can reveal his love and power to us and others. After all, this is the way everything was in the beginning right? An almighty friend, desperately loving and longing for his creation.

If you choose to trust him today, please considering sharing with us.

Living a life of calling and purpose


 Please take a second and clear you mind. Imagine a life of poverty and hopelessness. You live in a grass hut with a dirt floor, eat maybe a bowl of rice every day and drink dirty water. You are infected with HIV/AIDS and can feel your body slowly dying. Though you are 8 years old you work as a servant, an unpaid servant. You have no hope in life but you keep going. Without medical care you will die very soon. You will die hopeless and alone..

Matthew 25:40
“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’

So the question is what are we doing? Do we even care about the needs of others outside of our families? Has the Lord’s calling and purpose for your life been choked out by our desires and needs? By the glamorous lights of Hollywood flashing from our television sets? It kills me that I watch my favorite TV show or snack on some chips while another child dies in some unthought-of country. What if that was our child? How would we feel?

These are the questions that I have been challenged with recently. I had to take a step back and put myself in the scenario for the impact to really take place.

Remember this:

Luke 9:58
Jesus replied, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”

So if Jesus lived the life of a homeless man, why do we hold on to our possessions so tightly? It takes 2 dollars a day to feed a starving child. What habit could we cut out in our lives in order to bless another person’s needs?

This very need has birthed the Word Composed and FEED ministries. Not only will our ministry record a praise and worship album with 100% proceeds going to the needs of others, we will also give daily sacrifices to provide for these needs also.

Refocused; putting on our spiritual glasses.


  A few years back I realized that my vision was slowly getting worse. Over the period of a few years I went from not being able to see detail while watching TV to not being able to see street signs. I knew that it was about time for glasses. I remember the day I went to the eye Dr. and had a test. I looked through many different lenses and heard “Which one is better A or B”? When the test finished I was on my way home and I remember the anticipation I felt. The thought of being able to see clearly was something that I wanted instantly but I knew I had to wait a few weeks to receive my glasses.
I remember the day my glasses arrived and how quickly I opened the package and ran outside to have a view of the trees. I was astonished at how much detail I was missing out on through the years. My new glasses made it easier to drive, and to enjoy life. I wore my glasses daily and got used to the prescription. However, one day I forgot my glasses due to being in a hurry and while driving down the road realized “I can’t see clearly”! Isn’t it amazing how we can get used to our vision and how we see life? And how easily it is to forget how the Lord wants us to view life?
I have recently been in the very same predicament spiritually. I have forgotten my spiritual glasses. I have viewed a blurry unfocused life only to have that redefining moment where I say “I can’t see clearly”!

Acts 9:7
7 The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone. 8 Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus. 9 For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.

Acts 9:18
Instantly something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he regained his sight. Then he got up and was baptized.

Saul was in the very same predicament. The lord caused him to be blinded so that he can truly see. Saul had a blurry, unfocused, and selfish view on life. I believe that when the Lord caused scales to fall from Saul’s eyes he was then given spiritual glasses.
Does this scenario ring true in your life? Where are your spiritual glasses? What is your view on life? Is it spirit lead or self-lead? Please join me in prayer in asking the Lord to remove the scales from our eyes and give use a clear view on his calling and purpose in our lives.
