Coming Back

There's been a different feeling in the air these last few weeks... a feeling of preparedness. Getting ready for the fall, sending the kids back to school, getting back into a routine, no more prolonged vacations, no more beach outings, no more swims... things are changin'.

I've often felt the change in my own life when God begins to stir things up. His voice is so soft at first that I sometimes miss it. Okay, not sometimes, let's be truthful here, 95% of the time. There's just way too much noise today. Too many distractions, too many of life's loads to carry. We often go throughout our day with no ear to hear, no clear mind to comprehend, no focus to see.

My brother and his band, Down to Earth, performed this past weekend at an amusement park and they did an incredible job. He wrote this beautiful song with some help from my sister called "Coming Back". My brother is a minister, an accomplished drummer, guitar player, and singer. My sister has been writing songs for years and it seems that my brother is picking up that skill as well.

This song is anointed and ministers to me right now, the need to come back to the basics of living for God. We spend so much time trying to change the methods and improve, yet we lose the basics.

I'm sure this video will touch you as much as it's touched me. Enjoy!

For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd... I Peter 2:25

Your brother has a great voice! The song was beautiful.

I love that he gives the glory to the Lord, too.

I'm pretty sure I recognize that stage, too, lol. I think we've been to a few concerts there with our youth group.

I love that song, one of my favorites, it really ministered to me. The band did an awesome job and God used them mightily.

I was so proud of Peter, I can't wait to see what’s going to happen next...
