7in7 Begins Tomorrow

Ok my friends, this blog is a warning and a plea for your prayers.

The #7in7 journey begins tomorrow. I will be joining over 100 other artist with the challenge of writing seven brand new songs in seven days. So this is your warning that I will be posting all seven songs on my blog, twitter, and facbook pages for the next seven days. 

This year my "brotha from anotha motha", Aaron Ivey, asked if I would join him in the endevour of writing songs specifically for the Church. I won't lie, this scares me a tad bit because I know how hard it will actually be to write seven songs; and to write seven songs for the church as a whole, aw man, that thought is somewhat daunting.

Like many artist, I'm a perfectionist when it comes to writing, especially when it comes to writing songs for the church. I mean sure, there are times when the writing comes very easy, but most of the time it's a patience trying process for me. You would think that it would be easy for a Worship Leader to come up with these songs in his sleep. Nope, not for this guy. I think it's God's way of showing me that there is no way that I can do this without him. It will be only by his grace, and his grace alone, that I will be able to write seven worship songs in seven days. 

With that said, I now just ask for your prayers. 

- Pray that God would give me the strength to write 7 songs in 7 days
- Pray that God would bring melodies, lyrics, and chord structures to my mind
- Pray that God would bring me to a place of saying, "Lord, not my will, but Yours be done"
- Pray that God would bring me to a place of worship of Himself every time I sit to write
- Pray that God would use me to bless others with these songs and point them to Himself
- Pray that God would bring me to a place of complete surrender many times during this process
- Pray that God would bless me, as well as others, with 7 new songs in the next 7 days

Thank you for the prayers. The first song will be posted sometime tomorrow. 

Nothin' but love,
