The Story:
I do roughly 30 % of my concerts in detention and drug rehab facilities. This song poured out as I sat at my piano and stared intently at the toy soldier on my key chain that I’ve been carrying around with me for years now to remind me that I’m a warrior in Christ. I had done 3 detention center concerts previously in the week and I was feeling overwhelmed by the pain in the world. Even Jesus wept, was grieved and spent at times…pain in this world is real and we have to grapple with it. Yet, so often, we are afraid to be honest about our pain, and even our desperate need for God. I believe that God will be real to us when we are real with Him. This song is just that – a raw, real confession of need. There are no answers in it. It simply poses a question. But just listen, so clearly The Divine Father’s heartfelt reply can be heard in the precious vulnerability of the question itself. We wouldn’t dare to ask this to a God who isn’t good, who isn’t loving, and who isn’t more than willing.

“Yes! I Am here.”

Thanks for listening. I hope you are blessed by me, by this song and by this video.
