I’ve always wanted to do something musically growing up but I never had the chance to study it formally. The opportunity never presented itself as resources were meagre, and being the quiet type, I never expressed it strongly enough to my parents until my senior year of high school. That’s when I got my first guitar. A few years later, circumstances took me on a direct collision course with God. And life has never been the same since. Now I sing for Him and about Him – as what else is worth sing about more, if you think about it?!
Songs with rock-solid lyrics that were doctrinally sound spoke to me the most. Scripture in song was my thing and I loved songs with a strong message. So some of my favorite artists landed up being Don Francisco, Michael Card, Rich Mullins, Don Moen, Michael W Smith and lately Hillsong/United, MercyMe, Matt Redman and many many more…
What intrigued me was how God moved each one of them to write what they wrote. When I tried to do the same, I failed miserably, repeatedly. It was so frustrating to not be able to do what I knew was really my calling. After waiting on God for over 19 years for this, I believe that He is finally making it happen. When I penned my first song – the feeling was so surreal. The leading of the Spirit was so strong at that moment that I didn’t even know where I was headed with the theme when the lyrics showed up as I typed them. This resulted in the song titled “Jesus Calling” and for reasons more than one, I know it is aptly named.
Sharing these experiences with you give me immense joy and a higher purpose in life. I pray that the songs and content on these pages would spiritually edify and bless you while glorifying Him. I attribute all these good things to Him as it has all come from above. And for the things that don’t, it is from yours truly, and a result of my human shortcomings and weakness. For that I ask your forgiveness.
In all, be blessed!
yours in Christ,
