Hand waving out the car windowGot the idea for this last week, cutting the grass (happens all too often!), and am just now getting it to tape. I put this demo together over the course of an evening…nothing fancy...grabbed an awesome throw-back drum track (Hello, 80s!), threw down some surprisingly decent bass lines, and my favorite, the poppy, bouncy acoustic guitar phrases. Squeezed it all together, opened my Bible and before long, found myself in the middle of something cool, tapping my feet and feeling mighty fine.

I tell you, I love playing this song…could just strum on it for like 30 minutes. Cretia told me it makes her think about driving down the road and sticking your hand out the window and doing the “wave”. You know, letting the wind roller-coaster your hand up and down through the air? (C'mon, you know what I mean!) I can dig it. Totally. :)

But as much as this makes me smile, I don’t want to lose sight of the purpose for our singing. The reason we play stuff like this. The underlying point of it all is God’s Holiness. His incomparable Holiness. And our music and God’s word is (and should be) full of references to it!

Both The Book of Revelation and the Book of Ezekiel vividly describe a scene in heaven, where the angels and creatures and beings of heaven sing, 24/7, night and day, to God… “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!”

Isaiah 6:3 says the Seraphim cried to one another “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of Hosts! The whole earth is full of His glory!” (Wow)

So in that light, I pray that this song…will make you smile. And in smiling, you think on God. And in that, you remember His awesomeness. And in that, you find joy in the Glory of Him…who finds His joy, in you.

How cool is that?

God bless you and have an amazing day!
