GN!! my friends (Our God is God) 7/19/2014

Our God is God—He does not change; His truth, His love remain each day the same, He’s faithful to His matchless name, For God is God—He does not change. —D. DeHaan. How comforting to know that God is always the same and never changes! Despite the twists and turns, ups and downs, and constant changes of our lives, we know that standing powerful and constant above it all is our God. The wonderful things that God has done for us must be preserved and told to others (Psalm 102.18).(odb) I pray your Saturday has been an awesome one. Take care, stay encouraged & God bless you.

Life is but a weaving (The Tapestry Poem)

"Life is but a Weaving” (the Tapestry Poem)

“My life is but a weaving Between my God and me. I cannot choose the colors He weaveth steadily.

Oft’ times He weaveth sorrow; And I in foolish pride Forget He sees the upper And I the underside.

Not ’til the loom is silent And the shuttles cease to fly Will God unroll the canvas And reveal the reason why.

The dark threads are as needful In the weaver’s skillful hand As the threads of gold and silver In the pattern He has planned

He knows, He loves, He cares; Nothing this truth can dim. He gives the very best to those Who leave the choice to Him." — Corrie ten Boom

What's Going On?

Hello my friends, I would like to let you know that I truly appreciate each of you and your support. You would think that I would've released my album by now.. However, there is something holding things up. I have 2 different labels interested in a possible record deal. Please continue to pray for me that the Lord will lead and guide me in this situation. I will keep you posted on the developments. Currently there is nothing set in stone yet but either way you will be hearing something soon I pray.. Please continue to share the music and play it. I am looking to make a big announcement regarding Reverbnation real soon. I pray your week has been an amazing one. Take care, stay encouraged & God bless you.

Urban Tulsa reviewed "Forevermore" heres the article..

Into the Light

Looking in a different direction, Darryn Zewalk released a new single in August titled "Forevermore" that proves you shouldn't try to corner Christian music into any one particular style. In this case, Zewalk draws heavily from classic R&B and smooth jazz to deliver a blend that has sent him to the top of the Reverbnation.com chart in the Christian/Gospel category.

When scrolling through his Reverbnation tracks, listeners find that Zewalk moves smoothly between styles but shows that his comfort zone falls between smooth jazz and classic R&B. "Situation" lands firmly in the light jazz corner, but Zewalk's velvet-smooth voice provides the most impact when he jumps into R&B territory. "I Praise" finds a great balance between church gospel and the R&B/funk snap of Gap Band, Commodores, and Earth Wind and Fire.

But it's "Forevermore" that impresses most as he finds a balance between the two. As the music minister at Mount Olive Baptist Church in Sapulpa for the past 14 years, his heart is obviously planted in praise and worship and feeding the church, but if he continues to produce tracks like this, I would think he'll start ministering outside of those doors and performing regionally in the near future.

Sure, both of these artists step a bit outside the norm, but they also show that Tulsa's talent pool is almost as wide as it is deep. They also prove that our Christian music community reaches beyond praise and worship and bland Christian rock, which is a good thing because diversity is what feeds creativity.
