This Love

This Love! What is this love? How do we find it? When we’re going through things that are tearing our hearts apart, how do we find this love? Broken hearts… Broken relationships… Broken dreams… Hopelessness… I was at that place more times than I want to count and then in 1991 in the depths of despair something changed. I saw something and then what I felt was beyond comprehension. THIS LOVE!

I picked up my Ovation guitar to sing a song and then I was before throne of the Lord. His love came pouring over me and into my soul. The pain and hurt was being overshadowed by His wonderful love that I couldn’t comprehend, yet my spirit was being flooded with an incredible sense of peace. In that moment, I knew He felt my pain too and that He understood. Tears fell from my eyes as I stood in His presence and wrote the lyrics to this song. This song became like an altar before Him as He met me there in that place and also every time I sang it from then on. Now, the pain from that season is but a faint memory, but His love is still as fresh.

Everyone goes through storms at some point in their life. We don’t have to go it alone. We can take a moment and invite Him into our hearts and into those storms. He will come. He will even come like He did with the disciples walking on the water in the midst of the storm. In that moment, when His love touches us, we can rise up like Peter and walk on the water with Him. Then the peace floods us and the effects of the storm are gone.

I pray this song blesses you and ushers you into His wonderful presence. May you feel His love wash over you as you reach out for His hand. I’ve been through many trials and storms in my life, and never once, did He fail to be there with me through it all. He is with you now and will walk with you through it, IF you will let Him. Trust…

Janiece and I travel and minister to individuals and groups as doors open for us to go. We are starting a new thing this year. We will be going to communities, as the Lord leads, and booking hotel meeting rooms to do concerts. We will invite those from the hotel as well as the community. We will connect to other churches and organizations in those communities to help those who desperately need help, and who, perhaps won't come into a church building. We share His love to those who haven’t heard of their Father’s love for them and also minister in song. We’ve both been through a lot and have been healed and restored and that we have to pass on to others. We can speak through truth and experience because we’ve been there. If you would like to book us for a concert, event, speaking and/or ministry meeting, please use our CONTACT page. We hope we have helped to encourage you to go on and find the wonderful destiny God has planned for you. Psalm 139. Fly higher…

SDDL Website

I am presently converting “Sentenced To Death, Destined For Life” into a movie and have just finished publishing the 3rd book in the sequel to “Islands In The Sea”, titled “Illegitimate?” It is now available in the trilogy on this site through Amazon. We finished filming and producing the JOURNEY TO HOPE! 7 DVD Series with Janiece Turner-Hartmann and they are on YouTube for those who need help and encouragement. We are planning to take some time out to record some more music and then start touring early this year, 2017. Hope to see you on the road.
