Not Trading In

I wrote my newest single "Not Trading In" a few years ago when I was in a "questioning" stage of my life. I was in a place where I felt like no matter how hard I pressed whether it was my spiritual walk with God, my hopeful career as a musician, or my relationship with my wife, that I could never go BEYOND where I was at that point. What a super frustrating time especially when you realize that no matter how much you may think you're in control of life, life sometimes has a way of pushing back! I sat down with my pen and started writing these lyrics "Hurting on the outside, focused on despair" (The first verse of the song). But the more depressing words I wrote the more I felt God start pushing my thoughts to a greater message. By the time I hit the chorus I was penning lyrics like "I'm not trading in, I'm not giving up now, I know the road is dark ahead but I won't fear your restoring"! Wow what a difference when you realize that HE is in control, no matter how afraid you are or how dark the road may seem, Jesus is the same Yesterday, Today ,and FOREVER! I'm NOT trading in that for anything!
