I am a firm believer that the world should be looking to the church for creative and musical inspiration. Unfortunately, most of the time, it is the other way around. We must remember that as believers we have the most creative and most authentic being dwelling within us! The One who fashioned the Earth by hand, the One who spoke light into existence, and the One who gave the sea its limits resides in us. If we would yield to His creativity and inspiration, oh the results! It could leave lasting impressions that would transcend time. Too often, we can cheapen our sound and our creative footprint for the convenience of listening to and emulating other artists. I am not saying that others can’t inspire us, but there is a pure sound that only comes from Heaven. This sound will unlock the miraculous and has an anointing that the world can never produce.
