And the journey begins… my friend Jacob Early and I spent a few hours working on a demo of a song I wrote several years ago.

It’s my first attempt at pre-production – the process by which I will demo several songs and determine whether they will make the final cut.
That’s right, after nearly six years of a musical wilderness I have been set free! I am working on a new full-length album to accompany my new book.

That said, this song needs some re-working lyrically and some serious further production. But for now, I think we captured its spirit. Enjoy, and feel free to let me know what you think.

(I recently changed some lyrics, which is what happens in the production process. I put them in brackets below)

Northern Lights

Went to see the Northern Lights, so bright, reflected in Your eyes

And Your glory cloud descends, hey friends, it’s time we got going

Come on in out of the cold, come home, let’s go find this kingdom come, well done

I’ve been dreaming for a time, if its a crime, (Let me find my joy complete, let me see, oh)  Love be my sweet witness

Come on in out of the cold, come home, let’s go find this kingdom come, well done

When the sun sets on my shoulder, and the Northern Lights shine bold

When my troubles, they’re all over (when Your love is all I know), well done

Come on in out of the cold, come home, let’s go find this kingdom come, well done

    Awesome! I can’t wait until the project is ready! As an aside…Northern Lights is one of my “bucket list” desires…always wanted to see the real deal, in person! Hope the Bills was a blast!

If I Could Ask

Paul taught us that grace was “sufficient,” “more than enough” to empower us in the areas of our weakness.

“Yeah? How do you think it became known as the missionary position?” I asked. Nobody laughed. But I didn’t want to sleep with my wife so we could practice being good missionaries; I wanted to sleep with my wife because it was cold!

Why I Write…

I write for my kid’s kids and their kids as well. I want to write them a legacy of the goodness of God. I want to write them a story about the love of God. I want to build them a foundation upon which they can know love and in turn love. I want to write prophetically in the timeless voice of God “you have a great destiny, a holy purpose.” I want to write that they would know who they are and because of that knowledge, they would radically impact the world they live in.

He Loves Me Best / S&U Message

The title of my message was “He loves me best!” I hope to post it here in the coming days, but for a quick synopsis, check out this film that was shot last year to help promote my book Surrendered & Untamed.

Surrendered and Untamed: Book Review

Using a combination of Biblical and personal stories, Clark embarks upon a wild ride, a wild ride called faith. This isn’t John Eldredge and Wild at Heart; far from it. This is a call to be whom we are designed to be, to live our faith as God wants us to live it.

You Should Write to Remember

Writing is about establishing a promise regarding where we are going. It’s about destiny and legacy, about love, about remembering so we can know breakthrough…
