When I first started this project, it was with the hope that I could share my heart and love for Christ with people through my music forum. As time went on and we had many different delays, it became evident that the direction for the album was going to go in a new way. I Love To Tell The Story became something even more special to me. Although I’m still sharing my heart for Christ with you, it has turned more into a personal worship experience for me, and not just from singing the songs. Instead, during the creation of the songs, my mind was trained on glorifying Christ and worshiping Him and who He is in my life. That meant every aspect through creating, recording, editing, mixing and compiling all the songs, the artwork and how I was going to share it needed to point towards worshiping Him.
Along the way, I was struggling with one of the songs: “The Old Rugged Cross”. I couldn’t understand why such a simple song with such a powerful message, was giving me production fits!? So I stopped, prayed, studied and pondered and came to realize that it needed to be slowed waaay down so that each verse, chorus and the bridge would allow reflection. In the book of Psalms, the word for that is “Selah”. It also can mean “An Instrumental” which I added too! THINK about what the story is that is being told! I believe that was the whole point of my album.
So I hope our journey together through this music will accomplish the goal most important to Christians, and that is to worship almighty God and with every lyric, note and tone, lift up Him and Him alone with the praise that He deserves. I look forward to worshiping the Lord together through this music!
