I have done a lot of travelling in my life & I expect to do more as the album progresses & reaches the corners of the world. Yet what is my attitude to travelling spiritually, emotionally etc? Truth is I just wanna get there. Someone wise once told me to enjoy the journey. At the time I looked at them as if they were high. Now I get what they were saying. I want to enjoy the scenery when I’m travelling on a train, notice the flowers as I walk by, on my way to my destination. I don’t want my journey time to be wasted, because let’s face it, so much of our time is spent on the journey as opposed to at the actual destination. Who wants to spend 8 hrs on a flight focusing & stressing the whole time about getting to where they are going. But that is what I can be like, especially with the album. Getting frustrated. Expecting perfection immediately & completion as soon as possible. The last month in the studio has been a revelation. I had fun & enjoyed seeing how the song,I thought should be finished by now, has a third dimension.
“Be still, and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10
In the amplified version:
“Let be and be still, and know (recognize and understand) that I am God”.(Ps 46:10 Amp) I really want to get this.
It takes as long as it takes.No matter whether the journey is physical,spiritual or professional. I believe it will be worth the wait to do it God’s way & on His time frame. So no more deadlines. The race is not for the swift. ( that’s from the Bible, not me).
