Rest in Your Peace

I know it’s been forever and a day since I posted anything here. The short reason is it’s complicated. The long story is, well, just ask me in person some-time 🙂 In the meantime, I thought I’d put up a recording of one of my songs that’s not up here yet. I wrote this song a few years ago. We’ve been using this song as a worship song at our church for a while now, and many people seem to like it – maybe you will too. I just changed the layout a bit, and I still have some work I’m going to do on the song, but you’ll get the idea! Thanks for listening!

The verses are taken from Psalm 121. The chorus came to me first. I was stressed out one day, and I had the thought – what am I stressed about? The Lord is my help and my salvation, whom shall I fear? My help comes from the maker of Heaven and Earth. Then I had the thought if I could just rest in that peace that passes understanding, the peace that comes with the promises of God, I would be much better off. And that’s the way this song came about!

Songs are in the works

Hey, I just wanted to post something here to let you know that new songs will be coming to the site in the future. Things have been crazy for us for the last couple of months, but I’m hoping to get back into the swing of recording and writing in the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime, I may find some recordings of some of my songs from worship services to put up here for you to listen to!

Thanks for your prayers!

Jesus’ Hands (Hymn for the Broken)

Here’s the latest song I’ve been working on. It’s one that’s been on my mind to write for quite some time now. It’s a song that deals with a lot of the emotional situations we go through at some point in our life: Doubt, Guilt, Sickness, & death. It’s kind of like a Hymn, not by the technical definition, but kind of.

I started writing the song after my wife had a miscarriage and we were dealing with the grief of losing our baby. It’s a summary of the places I’ve found comfort from Jesus’ Hands.

Jesus’ Hand (Hymn for the Broken) by davidlindner
Here are the lyrics:

Life has left you on your knees
weakened from the weight of doubt
scarred with grace to bring you peace
Jesus’ hand is reaching out

Seeking rescue from the waves
guilt and shame from shore to shore
powerful and strong to save
Jesus’ hand can calm your storm

Mountains fall, the earth gives way, the sun withholds its light
But the hands of Jesus, full of comfort, tightly cling to mine
My Shepherd leads me by still waters, my cup overflows
He walks me down to restoration, trusting Him I go.

Weak, your flesh, it wastes away
trying you with every breath
don’t lose heart, for in His grace
Jesus’ hand will give you rest

Dark and stormy is the day
filled with grief that death unfurled
Man of sorrows, Jesus came
His hands overcame the world

Mountains fall, the earth gives way, the sun withholds its light
But the hands of Jesus, full of comfort, tightly cling to mine
My Shepherd leads me by still waters, my cup overflows
He walks me down to restoration, trusting Him I go.

When you breathe your final breath
Your journey through this life is done
Then the one who conquered death
Jesus’ hand will lead you home

Jesus’ hand will lead y

ou home

Rivers of Love

This is one of my favorites that I’ve written. It seems to be a favorite among others who hear it too. I’m blessed and humbled to get to write music that speaks to the hearts of those who listen to it. I’ve sung this song a couple of times at our church here in Washougal, WA, but I also had the privilege of performing this song at my brother’s church while we were back in the midwest.

The recording is just a scratch recording to get the arrangement idea across to our band at church, but it’s good enough to give you the idea.

Here are the words:

Verse 1

Walking the shores

I have been here before

I’ve been here so many times

Searching the sand

For what’s left of my plan

I don’t know what I hope to find

Pre-chorus 1

I fall to my knees

And say, “God please,

Won’t you take this heart of mine?”

He took my hand and showed me

Chorus

Rivers of Love

Oceans of Mercy

Flowing with grace

Leave not a trace

Of what condemns me

Rivers of Love

Oceans of Mercy

From the Father above

I’m not worthy of

This gift of the king.

Verse 2

Walking the desert

Of all of my hurt

The weight of the world on my mind

I’ve carried these burdens

As far as I can

But I just can’t leave them behind

Pre-chorus 2

I fall to my knees

And say, “God please,

Won’t you take this pain of mine?”

He took my hand and showed me

Chorus

Bridge

Pounding the shores

Of the nevermore

I’m constantly reminded

How I had been blinded

Who I was before

I’m not anymore

For I have found favor

At the hand of my savior

Who led me to where I could find

Chorus

Bridge

Calling Out To You

I wrote this song around Revelation 3:20: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.” I wanted to capture the idea of Jesus calling. The idea that he was Calling out to us from outside the door, waiting for us to answer.

We will be using it at our church as the invitation after our Easter Message, and that is how the song would be used the best.

These Days

This is a song I wrote for my wife for Valentine’s Day. It’s not a polished recording, but I think you’ll enjoy it. Each verse talks about a different “day,” or phase of our life.  The bridge has a nice little bit of punch to it to encourage us to be making new memories each day.
