in the Faith
This tune has been
part of my life since I was a young child. My older sister, Audrey Carey, wrote the melody when she was about seven
years old. I fell in love with it and,
as I grew older, I would come to the piano and earnestly study her every move until I was able to play it myself.
I forgot about the
song until about a year ago when another sister of mine asked if I remembered
it. When she began humming, I instantly
recognized it and felt a rush of warm memories flood my mind. I knew it had to be dusted off and given the
proper attention it deserved so I went to my piano and starting arranging
immediately. I was surprised how quickly
the lyrics and accompaniment came to my mind and soon realized this song would
be a very special collaboration.
“Firm in the Faith”
is a song about finding faith in the midst of opposition. An increasingly secular world around us seems
to deny the existence of God altogether, yet everything around us speaks of Him;
the motions of earth and planets, His glorious creations both great and the
small. I feel these are proof of His
love, for He made them so that we might have joy!
I hope this song
will help inspire those who listen to plant faith in their hearts or perhaps to
strengthen the foundation of faith that’s already been laid. Once we acknowledge the existence of God then
we can begin to ask ourselves even greater questions such as, ‘What is the
nature of God, and what would He have me do?’ May our faith shine for all to
see, as a living testament of God’s love.
Thanks to an
anonymous donor, I'm pleased to announce a new release by the end of May; Little
Warrior. This song will be donated to the Little Warriors Foundation to
help stop child abuse and provide a safe place for victims to recover by giving
them counseling and therapy. Your
support in this cause will be greatly appreciated! Little Warrior is
dedicated to all those children who quietly suffer and feel they have no voice;
may they know that they are not alone.
May they also know that they can rise above the abuse they endure and
one day be victorious, for God alone can turn a victim into a victory.
