As many of you may or may not know, God has given Amy and I the gift to write our own songs. To date, Amy and I have have written somewhere around the neighborhood of twenty songs. The songs range from songs of praise to songs of lament. We both know that one day our songs will be used around the World. But for now, we have had the push to start a CD fund for our first official CD. Many contributors have already given (monetarily or prayerfully).
I said all that to show you this. Bob Kauflin’s blog: www.worshipmatters.com. The most recent post of Bob’s is one entitled “Top Ten ways to Write Bad Worship Songs“. If you are in the process of writing, or have written songs to be used for worship, you may want to take a looksie at his list. After reading his list, may I suggest the book “God Songs“, by Paul Baloche and Jimmy & Carol Owens. This book will help get your thoughts and processes started when you are aiming to write music for God.
Now get out your paper and start penning the words that God gives.
