He Never Leaves (updated post with song attached)

I wrote the verses to this song (video at the end of this post) some time ago. I found Psalm 13 in the midst of constructing this song and that is where the chorus and bridge/ending came about. I have written honestly about feeling alone and wondering where God is in times of darkness. At…

You Still Speak

Here is my newest song. I wrote it from my own experience, from my heart. But as I have listened to it I have imagined those souls who are far from God, who need to be reminded that He is speaking and calling them back to Him. I am praying that those who have walked…

All My Life

Sometimes I am at a loss as to what song to sing on the spot when I want to sing to God. I have hundreds of songs in my memory bank from childhood until now.  This was kind of a remake of one of those choruses we sang in church while I was growing up…

Still On the Throne (Song)

I previously wrote about the inspiration behind this song in one of my former blog posts. It has the same title, in case you would like to go back and read it.  I have grown to love singing this song as one of my favorites.  It puts me right in front of the God of…

Somebody’s Daughter (Song)

I wrote a story with this same title a while back.  It’s in the archives of the previous blog posts if you want to go back and read it.  The song was inspired by a real person who was a friend of my parents.  I was compelled to write it when I had mistakenly felt…

He Heard My Cry

This song was inspired by Psalm 66.  This has been my testimony throughout my lifetime; again and again.

Broken (Without You)

I wrote this song when I was face to face with the insecurity in my heart, allowing me to see clearly how potentially damaging that could be to healthy relationships with my dear loved ones. Even my good deeds can have self-centered motives if I leave my insecurities unchecked.  Pride, jealousy, fear, discontent can all…

You’re There

The whole story of how and why I wrote this song is written in the lyrics.  God is faithful.  

Ready

  I remember writing this song being so sure I was ready to surrender.  Lately, I have my heart being tugged at persistently to do just that.  The words of this song are so strong and I want to mean them with all of my heart.  A dear and godly woman who I attended church…

Freedom

This song was born after a period of darkness in my thoughts toward myself.  I just could not seem to break free from the lies the enemy was holding me with.  God rescued me from that place and this song poured out of me in a matter of minutes.        

Faith He Can See

  This song is for my youngest son.  I wrote it when he was nine years old.  He was suffering with tormenting thoughts and wondered why this was happening to him. We prayed and prayed and the relief just would not come quickly.  I told him that sometimes God allows such times of pain in…

Let the Lost Be Found (Dad’s Song)

  I wrote this song about three years ago at the request of my Dad who pastors a small church in Northern California.  He wanted a song that would speak to the mission of their church – serving others and reaching the lost.
