Hello good friends and supporters of LGS Music, I hope I am finding you refreshed from the long summer days, warm weather and the fun this passing season can bring with family and friends. This month’s song, Changing Direction has refreshed my spirit on many different levels in the past few weeks and I am excited to share this with you. Changing Direction was written quite a few years back, with the Holy Spirit leaning over my shoulder downloading the lyric onto my heart, it flowed from my mind to the guitar’s strings, through the pen and onto the paper. It has been a mainstay song in my set list to this day. And looking back on "hindsight" that is a line in the song hee hee ... I remember how precious my time with the Lord was as He was feeding me this song.
“Loving God with All of Your Mind” is a sermon given by a preacher named R C Sproul. I heard it a few weeks back as I listened the memory of writing Changing Direction with the Lord flooded my heart and my mind. Think about how when we hear things over and over ... it becomes dull and we tend to check out and/or forget when it was new and how special it was. Over the years this has happened with me with different songs. But when the song is first written, it is time with the Holy Spirit that no other moment could compare (except, of course, the day I came to Jesus).
So there I am listening to RC Sproul ... every word he was speaking seemed to be one on one with the lyric in Changing Direction, the Lord was calling me back to the time when I wrote the song … with Him, those intimate moments were so clear, like I was back there writing the song again. The message, if you choose to listen is refreshingly honest, thought provoking, bold and intimate. The Lord is calling me to these things ... to change direction, to change my mind and walk toward The Way. How 'bout you?
