In a world where the news organizations and even our government is telling us how bad things are economically, I had a moment of hope for the future I want to share with you.
Yesterday I was invited to be a part of an event sponsored by the Gospel Music Association and I spent about 2 hours at Belmont University in Nashville in an event called IMMERSE. It was designed for hopeful and up and coming songwriters, artists, producers, and people who would like to be in music industry careers.
I was among a group of industry professionals who stood at various "stations" and over 500 of these people mingled among us and stood in line to ask us questions and get advice. I met people from Texas, New York, Florida, Alabama, and other exotic places, looking for answers to fuel their dreams and vision for themselves and others.
Hopefully myself and others gave them ideas, answers, and guidance they can use but let me tell what I saw and heard in these new friends......There is a future and God is there and he is inciting us to move forward and not live in the past and not to be deterred by the current circumstances.....I saw HOPE not fear not despair but pure hope!
There have been challenging times in the past and there will be challenging times in the future but have hope my friends and step into and IMMERSE yourself in the next moment of HOPE God has for you!
here I am discussing digital downloads with a new friend from Cleveland, OH ..........≥
“We have within ourselves
Enough to fill the present day with joy,
And overspread the future years with hope.”
