We are excited to announce the NEW CD is finally here! “KEEPER OF MY SOUL” has been a project that we have been thinking and praying about for the last year. It is an honor to present this resource to you. I have been visiting hospitals, cancer centers, prisons and nursing homes for many years and have witnessed the pain of human suffering. As a minister and chaplain, I know that God’s Word is the only source of miracle power. I have selected over 100 Bible passages and written these songs of faith, hope, joy, and encouragement so that everyone can quietly relax in the secret place of His presence.“So then faith comes by HEARING and hearing by the WORD of God” Romans 10:17.
I want to give a special thank you to Michael Reno at Inspiration Studios. You can contact him and learn more about his ministry at firstname.lastname@example.org. The beautiful background music is by Peder Hellend from Norway, a phenomenal musician that has a huge collection of his relaxing songs on YouTube. Just type in his name and you will be amazed and blessed with his work. Very beautiful! I very much appreciate the contributions from these two men and their passion for advancing the Kingdom of God. The picture on the front cover was taken by me from our backyard one evening on my cell phone. I was just walking around talking to God and noticed how unusual and beautiful the sky looked as the sun was setting. Our God is truly an awesome God, the Author, and finisher of our faith and the Majestic Lord and Creator of all things.
Here I am in the inspiration studio with Michael Reno. May you hear God’s still small voice and sense His presence. The Lord has much to say but most of the time we are distracted and simply not interested. It’s essential to develop an awareness of His presence if we want to know Him intimately. How many have a desire to give Him their undivided attention – not only when they have an emergency? If you know someone that needs the peace and hope of spiritual encouragement, please let me know and I will send them a FREE copy of this resource. Let us remember that fear is seeing God through the eyes of circumstance but faith is seeing circumstance through the eyes of God. When you have some quiet time, read Psalm 145. It is a very inspiring and uplifting passage that promises how God will always be with us. I am so thankful my dad was able to hear this. My mom said before he passed away, he would sit and listen to this over and over and sometimes she said he would cry. He told me he could feel God’s power and presence in this disc.
We have been receiving many requests for this CD from all over the Country and it has been a blessing to hear the testimonies about what an encouragement this is bringing. I personally believe there is nothing more powerful than the Word of God and I know that allowing our mind and conscience to soak in His Word can generate the faith to believe that anything is possible. Through the Omnipotence and Omniscience of our Lord and Savior, may we become determined to resist the devil and this dark world of negativity and allow the cool refreshing waters of His promises to fill our spirit and mind with His hope and confidence. The world is experiencing a famine of the Word of God, so now let us take this much-needed nourishment to those who are hungry and thirsty for truth and righteousness. Since faith comes by hearing, it is our responsibility as representatives of His name to confess His Word, demonstrate His love, preach His gospel, and relay His message of forgiveness and VICTORY to a lost and dying world.
The other 3 parts are very similar to part one, but for the sake of time and space, I am providing just the music. Part two includes “Touch the Scars.”
Part three combines “Refuge” and “Come Holy Spirit” as a worship medley.
And part four includes “Joy Will Come” as an extended worship version. “Joy will Come” is an inspiration for the entire project and has always been one of our favorite Bible verses.
The CD closes with the first 5 verses of “Psalm 103” which I sing all the time in my outreach ministry. I used both the Martin D-35 and the Gibson J-45 for all the music and give all the glory to God who allowed me to relay His message.
“O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation” Psalm 95:1.
“O sing unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord all the earth” Psalm 96:1.
