Closest to Heaven

Well, the start of week 4 at least. It's been a very productive year thus far. There are 3 new songs up on Patreon, one for each week. A cover of Chris Tomlin's new song Resurrection Power and a Lyric video for My God Is Bigger that I shot whilst visit the camp where I penned those very words quite a few years ago.

It's been busy, but it's been fruitful, or at least it feels that way.

After being at my Uncle, Abby's Aunt and my Grandmother's funeral's all within a month it helps re-calibrate one's perspective. I was able to talk with so many people who love my Grandmother that kept reminding me of how much she was a prayer warrior and loved the Lord. She really missed my grandfather who went home to be with the Lord about six years ago.

I reminded myself and others that they are all doing much better than we are here. For the believer this present life is the closest we will ever be to hell, and for the Unbeliever, it's the closest they will ever be to heaven. I'm so thankful that I'm the former and not the later. It makes todays' present sufferings completely bearable knowing that there is eternal rest.

I hope you'll join me as I continue to wrestle with these thoughts and others through song on my Patreon channel. It is a really avenue for me to be able to get songs directly to you, and allows you to support the music that you love. Looking forward to seeing that cool things we can create this year.
