A worshiper of God through music first, and someone who always had an appreciative kind of love for music second - as far back as I can remember - and not just Worship or Gospel or Contemporary Christian music, but so many different genres as well. For someone to limit their love for music to just one genre, they would not only be doing themselves a great disservice but doing a great disservice to the creativity and versatility of music as well.
As a song lyricist, when I write, I do so from a place of reality - from something I've experienced or am experiencing, from something I once felt or am feeling at the moment, or from a time and season I went through or a time and season I am currently going through in my life. I believe every word that comes from the pen to the paper is attached to an emotion, a feeling, a life event, or a thought, all of which could be past or present. But whatever it is attached to and wherever it does originate from, for me, it is as real when it is written as it was when it was experienced or felt. And in every moment that I write, I wholeheartedly acknowledge that my ability to do so is something that can only come from God, and I will always be grateful to Him for that.
I believe that God created music as a gift for us to give back to Him as an expression of worship, to bring glory and honor to Him. But I also believe He intended music to be used for so many other different reasons as well - too many to list that I am certain we can all relate to in some way or another - musicians and singers alike.
