Hi everyone, and welcome to the first post on my music blog! I created this blog because I love music - I love listening to music and I love to sing and write my own songs. My desire is to share the songs that inspire me each and every single day. And one day soon, I plan to post some of my own original songs. I am really looking forward to that day because it will be an especially exciting one for me. You see, when it comes to singing and songwriting, although it truly is my passion, it is not easy for me to just get out there and sing and share the songs that I have written. I struggle with incredible nerves, fear, doubt and unbelief. With every note that I sing, I fear that it sounds horrible; with every song that I write, I worry that when I share it with someone that they won't like it. Well, this past weekend at church, I heard the most encouraging worship song that filled my heart with hope. The lyrics were, "We will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. Everyone overcome." This song is a great reminder to me that it won't be by my own power or strength that I overcome my doubts and fears, but it will truly be by the blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony (Revelations 12:11). I can and will overcome. The song is called "Overcome" and it's by the Desperation Band. It's a powerful song, and I pray you too are encouraged when you hear it.
