Story

The Journey is our search for love, joy and peace in our hearts. We are created to seek and desire these things so we will reach out to our Creator. Sadly, most try to find meaning, purpose and happiness in every other possible way. God has provided a way to receive all our hearts' desire through His Son Jesus. If we call out to Him, believe and receive Jesus as our Savior and Lord, we will reach the end of our search. Our Journey's End is really the beginning of a new and eternal life.

It is so important to keep our eyes focused on Jesus our Good Shepherd.

There will be trouble in the flock and many wolves in sheep's clothing.

Jesus the Good Shepherd is still in control.

Where Ya Goin

"Where Ya Goin" has a blues feel with a driving in you car rhythm. The distant trumpet opens the song for piano and guitar rhythms, a melodic blues lead and lyrics that challenge the listener to figure out where you are going, no matter where you've been.
NOTES
I began writing music in my teens and wrote many, many songs over the years. Being in a Contemporary Gospel band, we performed and recorded many of those songs. When the band members went in different career directions, I continued to sing and write for a few more years as I cataloged the songs and put them away for safe keeping. Three years ago I opened the archives and began recording these songs again and …

Story

You Gave Your Life is a song that celebrates the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

This song is a reminder of the suffering and death of our Lord for our salvation which begins when we receive Him and His sacrifice for us.

We celebrate His Resurrection (being raised from and conquering death once and for all) and eternal life which is now and forever.

Looking forward to His return and celebrating eternity with Him.

Sometimes we face what seems to be and endless winter in our lives. God has already fought and won our battles for us.

We just need to wait and trust Him and soon we will see the Son come shining through.

In Him we have life!

Story

Many times we depend on people in our lives to provide comfort and help as well as the love we so desperately need as God's wonderful creation.

We are all human and prone to let each other down even though it may not be intentional.

There is a place in our hearts and lives that only God can fill and no one else can accomplish that.

God opened heaven's doors when He sent His only Son, Jesus to die on the cross in our place for the forgiveness of all our sins and to restore the communion of mankind to God.

Now we have a living relationship with Jesus and He will never let you down!

Story

Brand New is a song of celebration declaring the joy and peace of salvation through Jesus Christ. By recognizing our need and desire for God in our lives, asking forgiveness for following our own self centered path as well as all our sins (disobeying God's commandments) and receiving the free gift from God of the sacrifice of His only Son (Jesus) who died on the cross in our place and is risen from the grave we can be born again (Brand New). Dear God forgive me for my sins and thank You for sending Jesus to die for me. Lord Jesus thank you for your sacrifice on the cross. Please come into my heart and lead me as I follow You. Holy Spirit fill me with your love and power to serve God and all His children. Restore my communion with God as it was intended to be from the beginning.  Make me Brand New.

Story

Spanish Rhythm was recorded in 1983 on a 4-track analog reel to reel (if anyone still remembers those). Using a  Hofner acoustic 12-string, electric bass and guitar, a cardboard box for a kick drum and pots and pans for percussion the tracks were recorded and overdubbed (bounced) to produce 6 tracks of audio. It was mixed down to a stereo cassette master and miraculously preserved all these years. I recently remastered Spanish Rhythm to digital mp3 and thought it might be fun to share it with you. Hope you enjoy! God Bless You!

Michael.
