Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I exist to enjoy the goodness of God and behold his resplendent glory with my weak human soul. I make music and melody and sing praise to God with all my heart, in so far as I am able.
I'm a well trained musician, but I am not a particularly good or great man. Yet I want to be.
"But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead."
