Give Me the Grace
I have been married for 13 years with three awesome boys. The opportunity to care for and love my family is definitely a blessing. 'Give Me The Grace' is a culmination of songs that depict a journey through life. The title song, 'Give Me The Grace' starts with the idea that we cannot earn God's love, man's ways will not attain unmerited favor. It is a choice to surrender and recognize that we are powerless to deal with our own sin. The Song entitled, 'What Sin' is a powerful song that speaks of God's heart and desire to forgive us of our sin. I grew up in a Christian home with loving parents. Unfortunately both parents had to work and they worked different shifts. I was left alone for hours as a toddler and developed a feeling of abandonment. In addition to layers of rejection from my peers, and Christian leadership throughout my life I developed a very low self esteem, being extremely sensitive my anxiety was high. I have lived into my mid thirties not knowing what my problem was. Through God's Grace I have the opportunity to change my life and live for the moment, enjoy life's moments, and my family! The song entitled, "He Rescued Me" is about coming to the end of your own efforts and waking up to the reality that we are in desperate need of a savior! The grip of sin and the sting of death have no hold on us. The song, "My First Love" is about a young boy who has a real relationship with Christ, and is dealing with rejection and betrayal. He realizes that is hope and security comes from his First Love. It is important to note that God cherishes His creation which is indicated in the song, "Angels Rejoice". When one soul makes the choice to follow Christ the angels in heaven throw a heavenly party to celebrate the salvation of a lost soul. Well these are some highlights and a little background on the artist. Respectfully James R. Barber Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
