I have been writing songs for a long time. While I was in a country band, I wrote something like 50 songs (conservative estimate). As I look back now, I am a little embarrassed to admit that most of those songs were either completely untrue, or written about something that really doesn’t have any significant relevance.
Once I surrendered my life to Christ, I continued writing songs, but the content has shifted substantially. Now my passion is to write songs for the church. With the band Polen, I have written and recorded a little over 2 dozen Contemporary Christian songs. Some of them work in the church, and some of them are just really for personal worship. I also started a songwriting project with a group of local worship leaders a couple of years ago. We call ourselves the “SongWriter’s Guild”. The four of us have written about a dozen songs for our churches, and many of them are being played on Sunday mornings.
This year I wrote a song that is extra special to me. I wrote it with 4 members of our church whom I have been discipling for the past number of years. The song is called “Our Savior Reigns.” We have used the song a couple of times in our church services at MCA, and I am excited to see the new thing that God is doing in our midst.
The Bible says to sing a new song unto the LORD (Psalm 96:1). There is no end to God, and there is no end to the songs that can be sung about His goodness, grace, and love.
