God of the Universe

As you can probably tell from previous blog posts, we are releasing a CD soon! It has been a very exciting journey which leaves me with one thing on my mind to blog about at the moment! All of us in D7 Band have contributed to the album so I thought I would share the story behind some of the songs.

God of the Universe was written in 2005 and was inspired by a massive tree that stood in front of our home, which you can see part of in the clip above. I looked up at this tree and thought how huge it was and then by comparison how big God must be. This left me with a great sense of awe at the sheer size of God & the universe that He created. I imagined myself as a little person standing at His feet looking up at Him, just as I had stood at the bottom of this tree and looked up at it. In the midst of this awe I saw myself as a cheeky little girl standing at His feet saying in total confidence of His love for me; "Here I Am"! It was as if I knew how big God was but I also knew that I was His daughter and He was calling me to Himself.

At the time I never saw myself as a songwriter and definitely not as a singer. I simply loved God and loved spending time in worship. At times I wrote down the songs I would sing to Him just for fun, but I had never shown them to anyone until we needed songs to sing at Church last year. Never, ever, did I think they would end up on a CD. This is the first of the simple songs I had written down. In this clip my lovely daughter Lorah is singing & I am doing backing vocals.

The video above has a short clip of the song, the full song & songbook will soon available to purchase through

Saved by grace, a new creation, on purpose for a purpose. I am free with a future and a hope!

I've considered deleting this blog many times but can't seem to let it go for some reason. Perhaps because it contains such an important part of my life and I'm hoping that somehow my 'scribblings' can inspire and help others going through some of the things I've been through. So, I continue to hold onto it for a little longer. Tonight, 31st December 2021, I reflect on not only the year that has passed but the many years before that too. I love to look back and reflect before plotting the way forwards into a new year. So I've pulled out all my journals and as I flip through the pages I am in awe of how far I have come.  Only today I found myself chatting with Jordan about the importance of not comparing ourselves with others but without past self, and as I look back I am amazed and how far I have come. I can't help but go back to that day. The day that I hit rock bottom. I had been a Christian for 10 years at that point and yet still found myself on the

Daniel Fast - Odours, Tiredness and Pains

These are some of what can occur during a fast but don't be alarmed, it is only worse case scenario.  Many people don't go through all of this so don't worry.  This info is merely so that you understand what is happening in your body and that you don't become concerned if some of these symptoms present themselves. Odours, tiredness, dizziness, headaches and other pains - these are some of the things that you will face during your fast.  As you continue to fast you body will begin to cleanse itself and eliminate toxins.  These toxins will come out of your body wherever they can which will mean that you might sweat more and your sweat will have a stronger smell than usual.  You breath will also be stronger than usual and so will you urine smell.  You may even get a funny taste in your mouth or feel that your tongue has a thick coat on it.  It sounds nasty, but for a while you will face unpleasant odours from your body, so brush well with a natural toothpaste (as you don
