I was so bless recently to get this email from a brother who shared with me how God had used the song Seek Ye First in his life. I’ve gotten a few of these through the years. I’ve decided to start sharing these stories with you all. Isn’t it amazing how God can use something so simple as a little scripture chorus. Of course, the key is that it is God’s Word
Email received February 1, 2011 Dear Karen, I just revisited your song “Seek ye first” with my children in our own little family worship time. I cried. Not because the little song is just good, but because it is your song that drove that scripture into my heart as a very young child. Now I remember that as the first moment that I can remember that I made a commitment to Jesus. That little song changed my life. It is where I start my testimony and the moment that God broke in and met me and I understood it. I just wanted to let you know that you changed my life by writing that song. Thank you so much!
Christian Brother & Guitarist In the Presence of God
I only really knew him for the few days he came to Santa Fe to play guitar on my “Singing My Heart Out” CD, but that was long enough to know that he was a great brother in the Lord. Rocky went to be with the Lord on February 25, 2009. I don’t know details, but I do know that he had one operation on a brain tumor a few months ago. His death was likely complications from that. Rocky was an easy going, dedicated musician who “played his heart out”. I am privileged to have had him play on my CD. I’m glad that album, along with several other of his own and others will help memorialize him and the things he accomplished in his short life time in the area of music and for God. Please pray for his wife Jena and their soon to be born baby. Here is the message that his family sent out about him. May God be close to all of them right now as they learn to live out the rest of their lives with out Rocky. Praise God that there WILL be a reuniting time in God’s presence.
