the album is at hand...

A year after we frequented the studio and plowed through a week of hard core recording, I recieved the mastered copy of the project. We are now sending it away for packaging and duplication....a 1000 copies to be dispursed wherever God sees fit. This is where excitement and fear mingle ever so fluidly together. I'm so excited about giving this to friends and family and seeing if God might want to take these songs and spread them across the world for His people to sing back to Him. I'm also afraid that the dreams in my heart will be dashed in the coming weeks...that somehow all the heart energy and passion that went into this will not turn out to have the affect I hoped for. That's the scary thing about hope...it sets you up for disappointment. I could lie and say that I don't care what happens...but that would be hogwash, which is the Greek word for Nonsense. I do care...these songs are close to my heart and i want to see them go and stir hearts to worship God really hard. Really, really hard.

So much time invested, so much heart poured out, so much money given...

what will God do next...

that's the x-factor...

God, praise awaits you...

I have heard some of your music through myspace and Bethany Dillon stuff. I would really like a c.d. and would be willing to pay for it. Is there a way for those of us who don't know you personally to purchase one? Thanks and blessings to you.---Beth

Hope is scary. I can relate. It's encouraging to hear someone verbalize what I think many people feel, including myself, about things that matter most in life. Thanks for sharing with us. And I second Beth's question. :)

Yeah...I'm going to have to work out some kind of system. Stay tuned for how to purchase the album. I'm a computer nimrod...so I'm going to have to get help figuring out how to make that kind of transaction. Thanks for your patience...and for your encouragement. I can't wait for next week on August 3rd.

Ja, I think I know someone who can get me one, but I'd LOVE to have one too. I shared your songs from Myspace with people in Seattle last week (my fam) and they all loved it too! Are you sure 1,000 is enough?? I doubt it! =) I'll be praying for you! That's what I wanted to tell you Sat...I love this blog b/c it lets me know how to be praying for you and your famiy.

What have you been teaching us this last few weeks?!?!?!?! DO NOT let the Enemy continue to chirp in your ear - I am officially "flicking" him off your shoulder.

You are an amazing artist - I can't wait to get my hands on a copy and share it with my friends and family!

Congrats!!!!

Ja,
I agree with everyone else who posted. I'd love a copy of your album, but I'm sure basically all of the people you know would love a copy of your album. lol. You really are an amazing artist. I hope you figure everything out and it all goes well.

Dude

I'm buying a CD from you or you mother in law said I can't stay on staff here at Bethel. So you got me behind you bro. LOL. Just messing with you man. Just remember, it's your first big project like this - give it to God - and learn as you go. I'm just glad someone on this planet is pursuing their heart. What a rare thing these days.

Jason G.
