Rise Up and Shine

My first attempt to write a song was in 1995, back then; I was only new in the Music Ministry of our Parish in Marikina City. I don’t even have the formal trainings and courses in Music, all I have is the guts and faith that God will use me to serve His people through music.

Years and years of perseverance before I gained a little of the skills of a true songwriters. In fact, I laug...h at my own previous compositions, but at the same time nostalgic because every song I wrote has its own story to tell. They may not sound good but it helped me a lot to acquire more knowledge and skills for me to be ready for the fulfillment of my dream. I desire to record the songs I wrote and put it together in an album, and that ONE DESIRE remain in me. I had sleepless nights thinking about the project, day in day out, but I don’t have the resources to fulfill it. So I forget about it, temporarily.

In 2012, the desire of making my dream a reality came back but this time I am determined of fulfilling this dream. All I need is to get out of my comfort zone and take a leap of faith that God will help me every step of the way. He planted in me this seed and it grow every single day and now it bears fruits, and I need to share it.

I constantly prayed "Lord, I know this is not easy but I offer everything to you. Use me, mold me, and cleanse me so that everything I do is only for Your glory. Raise my gift but lower me. HERE I AM LORD; I am ready and LET YOUR GLORY SHINE through me.

I focused on the "WHY" and not on the "HOW" and He revealed it to me through the years.

I am OVERJOYED with what the LORD has done for me, so join me and CELEBRATE His wonders and His mighty deeds. Nineteen (19) years in the making but it is worth the wait. Truly, God is the AUTHOR OF MY LIFE and what he has written will become a reality.

Now, I RISE UP AND SHINE for the Lord.

May His presence be FULLY ALIVE in you and I hope you will be blessed as I am blessed doing this project.

Matthew 17:20 ---- He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”
