Revelation Song (Origin Video)

Posted in Uncategorized on August 11, 2009 by Rick

This is the story of how one of my favorite modern worship songs came into being. Kari Jobe makes me cringe a bit when she says she thinks the song is “God’s favorite.” On second thought, any song that is exclusively about God and His holy character is probably on God’s list of favorites.

I used to be full of crap now I'm just full of Joy!

I used to be full of crap now I'm just full of Joy!

Today I celebrated birthday number 33! While my joints feel the effects of 33 years of too much stress my spirit has never felt more alive. I have a core of friends and family that love me for who I am, I have two incredible jobs, two precious children to love and develop, and I have the most wonderful marriage a person could hope for. I think back to mid February of 1996 when I effectively alienated everyone that meant anything to me and I was forced to evaluate the abysmal choices I’d made to that point and purpose to do something different going forward. At 18 years old my life was marked by deceit, selfishness and foolish pursuits. To shorten this epic, I recommitted my life and decision making to pursuing Jesus Christ and the will of God. I didn’t get it perfect but I sensed more of the Holy Spirit’s presence in my heart and the things I thought were important before that time didn’t seem as urgent or relevant any longer. At my lowest, I never felt God could forgive me for my transgressions or use me to do anything for Him or anyone else. I thought I was eternally sidelined. That turned out to be a lie from the pit of Hell. I realize now that the brokenness I experienced in my youth was fertile ground for God to begin His work of restoration in my life. I believed I could plot my own course to success and joy but that left me outcast and irrelevant. Living for Christ has afforded me joy, respect and purpose. I credit all that I am and all that I have to God and God alone. I firmly believe had I continued life under my own guidance I would not have a story of celebration to report today.

Jesus said, “Abide in me, and I will abide in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abides in the vine; no more can you, except you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing” (John 15:4-5).

Philips ‘Carousel’ Commercial – Adam Berg

This is pretty captivating. It’s, no doubt, a tool to tempt me to deem my current technology obsolete and sell my soul for something new. I’ll fight that battle while marveling at the wonder of modern cinema. Here’s the interactive weblink introducing you to the world’s first Cinema Proportion TV:

Identity Crisis: A Thundering Message From The Hood

Posted in Uncategorized on March 9, 2009 by Rick

I am abstaining from buying and listening to new music for Lent. Since I sat through the production of this album before the Lenten season this doesn’t violate my vows. Tedashii’s sophomore release is nearly ready for release and here’s his first single. There are some other songs I hope will be included on this new album featuring yours truly. More on that later. Enjoy!
