A Fresh Start
I’d like to say a big thank you to all of you who have recently joined my mailing list and downloaded the free EP ‘A Message from Shezekiel‘ too!
It’s been a while since I’ve blogged, Just over 9 months in fact! The album ‘Catch the Boat ‘was due to be launched in Autumn 2016, but tragedy after tragedy in the guise of death has been chasing my dream to release my first album like a tsunami and on 31st October last year the producer of my impending album Wayne Brown died.
For me it’s been continuous seasons of woe and despair and I found myself paralysed emotionally, still saddened by the loss of my sister on Christmas Eve 2015, my stepdaughter October 2016, the sudden and untimely death of a close family friend in November 2016 followed the passing of my favourite uncle in December of 2016. I must be honest, these deaths hit so hard that I was consumed with thoughts of my own mortality, I lost all confidence and I was numbed.
However, I eventually did find some peace, solitude and respite having travelled to a vegan health retreat called the Herghilia Lifestyle Centre in the beautiful country of Romania, which I can only describe as a hospital for the sick in mind body and spirit, where love was shown and prayers were a sweet fragrance, where miracles happened and where wisdom, knowledge and understanding spoke to me, all based on the principles of God’s Word. I spent eleven glorious days with people suffering all types of illnesses and addictions and emerged spiritually rejuvenated and refreshed.
I don’t celebrate the Easter festival but I do have a faith in Yeshua which is Christ and in his absolute resurrection. I believe he has the keys to life and death, so in HIM I continue to trust knowing that one day, in that great getting up morning, all wickedness, weeping, wailing and the sorrows of this world will cease.
So, despite nine months of uncertainty, I’m very happy to say that this gap in time has given birth to a renewed vision and a fresh start for the Shezekiel album project.
I might have been down but I’m certainly not out! So keep the faith and keep resurrecting your dreams too …
