God Loves You More

There is so much more that I could still say, but I think I’ve already given you plenty to think about. Again, if you want to know more about these songs or the story behind them, I’m always happy to talk. I’ve got one last song for you all.

Living

It was the end of the year. I'd just come back from the last Impart retreat, and was walking around Campbelltown with my ukelele. I wanted to write a song that would tie the album together, because I'd written all the other songs. I just needed something to wrap it up.

My Hope

This poem was written on the last Impart retreat. We had some retreat time out at Parramatta Lake, and I went for a walk around it, with my Bible, a notepad, and a pen. And every now and then I'd stop, randomly open up the Bible, and write a couple of lines that tied what I read with what I was seeing.

100 Days

Not long after the Valiant Man course, a friend got me to start doing something that became a lot larger than he or I expected. All he asked me to do was write down when I'd had a quiet time. I thought, this is actually a great opportunity to get some information....

The Story

I just call this one The Story, and it's drawn very much from my own experience, but I think it applies across to many people and situations. The writing style also reminds me a little of Dr Seuss, for a bit of fun.

Enough

One thing that this world is easily obsessed around is the idea of more. We know that God is supposed to fill all our needs, to be enough for us - but our idea of what we need, and God's idea of what we need, can often be quite different.

The Drip

This was actually the first song I wrote on the album. In our first Impart intensive, we had a bit of retreat time at a beach in Stanwell Tops. I found this little quiet spot, off to the side on a rock ledge.
