God In Control

Who else could cause the seasons to change? Who else divides night from day? Who created nature? What force dictates the trees, grass, and leaves to grow and not to grow? Who tells the stars to shine, the sun to shine, the moon to shine? Who gave you the brilliance and personality to shine?

Who gives mankind intellect, intuition, and insights? If mankind, culture, institutions, and phones are so smart, why is there still no remedy to cease winds, storms, and hurricanes? Why have they, being so rational and educated, yet to know all that exists on land, underwater, or in the depths of outer space?

Ever notice how infants need no instructions on how to breathe, cry, eat, sleep, nor poop? If mankind is so smart then why have we yet to find a way to go days/months/years without relying on sleep or any sort of rest. Some humans can't even go three hours without a nap.

There is no known power in human control that can stop cause and effect- action and consequence- first this, then that. The "Laws of the Universe" existed long before they were observed, recorded, and labeled as "laws." Who made those "laws?"

Let's face reality, mankind is not in control. We'd like to believe we are, but we can only do so much. Only God--the loving, merciful, and all powerful being-- has all control. This is why we should not worry. Jeremiah 29:11 confirms the fact that God has our best interests at heart. Trust in Him and keep it moving!

  • Psalm 24:1- "The earth is the Lord's and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein."

The Synth Sounds

I am excited to share that my first jazz project is nearing completion. (Also why this is my first post this month).

Other than piano, you can definitely expect to hear sounds of 1980's and 1990's-era synthesizers filtered throughout the upcoming album.

I admire the newer sounds we have today, but none of them quite replicate the original, synth-led sounds of 80's and 90's music.

In my opinion, 80's and 90's sounds present the perfect crossover of analog and digital mixes that were limitless in use and expression.

It is no wonder that modern synthesizers today still draw inspiration from 80's and 90's technology. It was simply some of the most innovative audio machinery ever created.

No shame here. Expect 80's and 90's vibes to come your way in my upcoming project.

Stay Tuned!!!

CFC Youth Day

CFC Youth Day was nothing short of remarkable.

Children, teenagers, young adults (my generation) sang, danced, praised, and worshiped God with passion, love, joy, energy, and sincerity.

We led, both, the 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM services and the LORD ministered through us in His own powerful way.

I am very grateful to have preached at the 10:00 AM service. (Came from 2 Timothy 1:7).

Something amazing happens when we move ourselves out of the way and allow the LORD to communicate His Word through us. He does for us what we cannot do for ourselves. And when you summarize the meaning He brings to life, you realize that all the of the glory belongs to Him.

The reality of God's presence gives life, and everything we involve ourselves in, brand new meaning.

God's awesomeness was displayed in a monumental way today. A flame was kindled in our youth and the church as a whole.

Today was special.

Big thanks to everyone who helped make today such a great success, you know who you are!


The Audacity of Hope

Last week I completed The Audacity of Hope by President Barack Obama in 2006.

In The Audacity of Hope, Mr. Obama shares some of his experiences as a citizen and politician while also laying out policy-driven solutions to improve the lives of Americans.

Granted The Audacity of Hope was written before Mr. Obama's first presidential election in 2008, his thorough understanding of the Nation's issues are impressive and difficult to overlook.

Mr. Obama, in an academic prose, but down-to-earth tonality, hits on national issues relative to our political system, constitutional interpretation, economics, military policy, education, and community development.

I found The Audacity of Hope to be one of the better books I have ever read on American politics and public affairs. Regardless of your politics, this is a good read with the capabilities to expand anyone's understanding of politics and government.

In fact, much of the information contained in The Audacity of Hope is still rele…
