I finished writing this song on my travel to the destroyed parts of Northern Nigeria. I saw first hand what it means to lose hope and how powerful and necessary hope is in moving forward. This song put hope on my lips and I hope it fires up the same in the heart of everyone that listens.
TY BELLO: THE MORNING SONGBOOK (10.10.14)
Today's date is really interesting in so many ways it speaks of complete cycles. Perfection. Double 7+7=14 ...Two complete cycles...Doubly perfect!
In 2009 I hit this beautiful season where I would write music to God as my morning devotion. It was a unique time of discovery and I felt it was a beautiful way to give of myself...Open and sincere...It wasn't long that I realized that I was recieving way more than I was giving.
Every beautiful exchange with God always leaves us with more. I was also humbled when I got this heartfelt assurance that He thought the songs were perfect. Perfect?? If you've ever written music you would know that "perfect" is the one thing that simply evades.
Well, it's taken a number of years to make...Here it is. My gift to God...His to me. And yours for free for as long as I can keep it so, let me know how it did. On a perfect day.
Please feel free to share!
