In April I announced that I would come out of the closet as a gay man. Before that decision I used my blog everyday to spend time with God during my morning inspirational that was guided by one song. Despite my defiant tone in my announcement, I have to admit that the personal revelation did cause me to question or examine my faith and walk with God. For a time there were issues I hated to address and conversations I would avoid. What happen to that was Judy Jacobs and this song Days of Elijah.
I have always known I serve a great God and an all loving one. The song speaks to the fact there is no God like him and after praying about my walk, life, and passion I am confident of his love and ever protection.
