Over a year and a half ago, I wanted to start a new series on this blog called "Behind the Music." After one post, I gave up. I know that God wanted me to share these stories... but I still struggled with being so vulnerable. I felt God nudge my heart again to share what He's done in and through my life... so almost 5 months ago I tried to smooth it over by doing a "Behind the Music - New Day EP" recap and gave one sentence summaries of all the songs on the album. But God has convicted my heart of silence. What good would it do for me to write songs and share them with people, without sharing the reason for which I sing? The pain and hurt and all that is behind some of these songs... may in fact be someone else's inspiration and hope. I see a world that is lost without Christ... and there's a joy that can ONLY be found in Him. I need to share that. I want others to know that without Jesus, without His grace in my life, I am nothing.
So, I'm going to try again. This week, I'll be posting my second entry in my "Behind the Music" blog series. I'm going to be real and vulnerable and share these stories, with the hope that someone out there will be encouraged.
