A while ago, I was going through an extremely difficult time after experiencing hope deferred in the realm of romance. My heart was broken and I had very little hope of finding the “True Love” that I was deeply longing for. All that seemed even slightly appealing was to lie on the couch in the dark, wallowing in my pain. I had my eyes closed, with the aftermath of explosions in my chest leaving a dense, dark, chasm of despair reaching the depths of my heart. Suddenly in my mind’s eye, I saw my chest opened up with my rib cage peeled open; my heart was exposed and beating with fearsome vulnerability as Jesus knelt down and kissed my bare heart. He whispered with such delightful tenderness, “I’ll never break your heart. It’s precious to me. You are precious to me.” That was when the tears exploded from my eyes like two raging waterfalls as the sobs came pouring out.
The next day, one of my friends came walking into the room,
“Hey man, are you okay?”
“No. I’m not okay.”
“Yeah, I can tell… why don’t you write a song about it?”
“I’ve been thinking about that for a few hours now.”
“I think you should go for it. It might help you.”
He was right. It helped quite a bit, although there was still a lot to let go of.
Only a couple months later, when I had least expected it, the woman of my dreams walked through my front door and the whole world stood still as Pure Light emanated from her beautiful face. I was awestruck. Several months later, I proposed to Kati at the top of a ferris wheel and, on August 23, 2014, we celebrated our wedding day! I am absolutely blown away by the kindness of our Papa. My mind is blown by his generosity and the depths of his love for us! He has brought us both through a lot and I am so excited about the Journey ahead of us as we embark upon this adventure of Love together; and I’m so glad you get to be a part of it!
“Lullaby for a Broken Heart” is a song that I hold close to my heart because writing it helped me through a really rough time. I am a living, breathing example of a life transformed from excruciating despair to ecstatic delight. What’s mine is yours. You’ve been united with Christ and your life has been fully restored. As you awaken to this very present reality, your experience will follow suit.
I’d love to share the song with you! Watch & Listen below!
“Lullaby for a Broken Heart” will appear on my upcoming album, ‘Whispers.’.
