Although this blog is titled “Brian Beasley Music,” many of you may have wondered where the “music” part has been hiding! I’m happy to release my first song in a while, called “One Soul” and share it with all of you. A link to the song is at the bottom of this post – I hope you enjoy it.

No matter how blessed we are, there are going to be days that are crappy. That’s just part of life. I feel like sometimes that not only do I not know the answers to some problems that I’m going through; I don’t even know what the questions are! Everybody has days or weeks or even longer periods like this, as much as we Christians try sometimes to just put on a happy face and not let anyone know that we are hurting.
When I was in the process of writing songs for my “Champion of My Life” album, I decided to study some of the songs in the Bible. Now, when you think about songs in the Bible, most people immediately think about the book of Psalms. Psalms is referred to as God’s Songbook and so it’s no surprise that it’s the first thing that comes to mind. But there are songs throughout the Bible and one of the places where you see this is in Revelation. In the book of Revelation, we get a peek into what God is listening to in his throne room – God’s playlist, if you’ll let me use a modern expression.
God has taught me (and continues to teach me) many great spiritual truths through fatherhood. One of the biggest things He has taught me is that how I want my kids to trust me is how He wants me to trust Him. As I’m sure every parent knows, kids are full of questions. They often want to know what’s going to happen that night or tomorrow; they will show concern over the future, and it’s hard for a parent to take the time to explain everything out (and even then they are often not convinced) and so the parent might say, “just trust me – everything is going to be okay.”
Back in 2009, my family decided that God was calling us to leave the only church I had ever known. Various things and circumstances had led us to that place, and after 37 years we set out to look for a new church home. The church we were leaving was full of sweet people and remains very dear to our hearts. It was a small family church and no one took the decision harder than my dear mother.
