No Longer My Own (music)

My water bottle prayer…

Greetings, friends!

At last, the new album, NO LONGER MY OWN, is officially in manufacturing!!!

An interesting thing happened the other day. I was driving around town listening to final mixes of the new album. And, of course, when one has completed something one has worked very hard toward (in my case, the new CD), one must listen loud!

While driving, I had my right hand on the steering wheel and in my left hand was a bottle of water (one must also stay hydrated). I could feel the water in my hand vibrating to the beat of the music. I’m no physicist, but it seems the sound waves coming out of my speakers were powerful enough to affect the water in my hand. Think Jurassic Park.                          20150508_164007In that moment, I said a prayer asking God to cause this new album to effect change in a similar way to all who hear it…that lives would be moved, altered, and impacted for the Kingdom.

I googled the definition of a sound wave…the pattern of disturbance caused by the movement of energy traveling through a medium (such as air, water, or any other liquid or solid matter) as it propagates away from the source of the sound. The source is some object that causes a vibration, such as a person’s vocal chords. The vibration “disturbs” (quotations mine) the particles in the surrounding medium; those particles disturb those next to them, and so on. The pattern of the “disturbance” creates outward movement in a wave pattern, like waves of seawater on the ocean…

May it be true of this music, Lord Jesus. That its vibration would affect one person, and then another, and then another, and so on. Let it propel each toward outward movement. To “propagate” make something, such as an idea or belief known to many people. To foster growing knowledge of, familiarity with, or acceptance of our Jesus. To cause to spread out and affect a greater number…

All that from a bottle of water.

God be praised.

It’s coming.
