Those that have known me for any length of time undoubtedly come to this conclusion at some point. It's not restrictive to be defined by one word. Especially since the word "passionate" is so descriptive because of the inherent meaning. It can be applied to every aspect of my life. It can be used to understand the underpinnings of my existence. I am passionate.
There is only one reason that I live, move, and have my being. The defining moment in my life was to firmly set my feet upon the path I am now on. That journey began long ago but the decision to do it with my whole heart originated on March 17, 2002. This is my spiritual rebirth or my Rebirthday. My life is but a shallow well if it was not for the love of GOD, the salvation and life of Jesus, and the freedom and power of the Holy Spirit.
My life has never really made much sense in any other avenue except music. This is where I see my life ending up. Yes, I know that I am much older than I was and I also know that I am not getting any younger. GOD deposited in my heart years ago to become what I have been gifted in. The down side is and always has been the restriction of the Church. Not everyone is cookie-cutter and some are not satisfied with a mundane, emotionless, thought out worship set. Some, those who are called to be, need the deeper wells of living that come through the closeness wrought on their knees and pondered in their heart.
Ever since the veil was torn the day Christ offered up His life, men and women have been trying to, albeit innocently, reestablish the "Doctrine of the Familiar". Yes, GOD has never changed but His Spirit unheeded will bring staleness and atrophy. Our lives must be lived in the Spirit because His Spirit is the reason we have the ability to preach the good news to all of creation in the first place. I long to be used in the manner in which I was created.
