“Maybe everything was just a fantasy. But I believe I can hear my son playing outside the front door”
FRONT DOOR - from new project “Lyfe”
Wrote this song out of a place of desperately needing hope. Not a lot of things were happening with music .. things were kinda just day to day mundane. but I knew I had to keep the fire burning inside of me. I had to remind myself why I keep pushing forward.. why I wake up every morning .. Not only do I want to live a life fully dedicated to Jesus .. but I want to live a life where I obtain my dreams and goals and see the impossible happen and have faith.. not just for me but for my family .. for my boys .. so they can see that anything is possible.. so that they don’t have to walk with the chains of fear and doubt around their passions and dreams for themselves.. it starts with me! Im the one who is going to break the cycle of any stronghold in my family. And I’m going to set the tone of what it looks like to walk with God ! It says that “David strengthen himself in the lord... “ in his time of weakness ..however you do that.. maybe it’s remembering gods faithfulness in past seasons .. or maybe it’s watching your son playing with his guitar outside the front door.. I really love reading all the comments especially when I ask a question. WHAT ARE BELIEVING FOR ! And how do you keep pushing towards that goal .. what are some real emotions you feel.. and how do you respond when doubt feels louder then the truth!

I started out by leading worship nights in coffee shops ... I would never have imagined 8 years later I would be playing in an arena for 10,000 people. It was like out of a movie I got called by a friend late Friday night to play Saturday night to open up for @rendcollective and @forkingandcountry and I would be filling in for @zachwilliamsmusic because he got sick 🤢 and couldn’t make it to @spiritwestcoast. (Big shoes to fill)
I knew that the only guys I would feel comfortable playing without a rehearsal with was @mic@michaelreescampbell@saintmesa@badboibryan and @hunterharrisonn. I would have turned down the opportunity if any one of those guys couldn’t make it. They each dropped whatever they were doing to join me, and in less then 24 hours we were on stage worshiping with a stadium full of believers .. sharing the testimony of God’s faithfulness and sharing about the miracles we have been experiencing with my son Asa !! It was so powerful and a moment I will never forget.
4 years ago God told me I would be playing in stadiums. I thought Chris Tomlin singing Resurrection power was the fulfillment of that.. but he delivered even more then I thought He would do.
I remember someone saying a long time ago, “if your destiny knocked on your door right now, would you be ready?” And all these years I did all I could to learn how to steward rooms and feel God’s presence and to play guitar and everything musical.. but the real kicker is that it’s only half of it. Your destiny is also found in people. Relationships and family. I would have never been able to play that stadium without the boys on that stage with me. I am forever grateful for @michaelreescampbell driving all the way from Hume Lake through the night to make the 12pm sound check in Riverside County and for the other boys that threw their plans to the side to say we are gonna back you up and we will either crash and burn up there or Holy Spirit is gonna show up and do something amazing. Praise God tho it was the later haha.
What are the promises over your life and how are you stewarding them? How are you remembering them ? Comment below and tag someone that needs reminding of the promise over them.
I call this piece : ABBA poppa Shaba .. lol

Getting married is really a roll of the dice. Honestly. You can start off as friends.. date for years... but even then those dating years are but a FRACTION of a lifetime. You have no idea what someone’s going to be like in a year.. 10 years down the line. We change and grow and major life events happen and nothing simulates what it really is like to be married. To burn the ships and say “we are staying and no matter what we are in this together” ..That is why this woman blows my mind . We’ve been through hell and back I couldn’t have done this with anyone else .. and we have fought to keep our connection alive and to be around her and see how she handles this crazy life has taught me so much.
she is kind,thoughtful, adventurous, strong but knows how to show weakness, consistent, patient, full of grace funny. I don’t laugh with anyone the way I do with her. She takes care of people so well. And if you’ve ever met Cass you know what I’m sayin.
Thank you @cassielellis for making me a better man and choosing to spend the rest of our lives together
Tag who your Cassie is down below :) ❤️🙌🏾🎅🏿
