let me take you back to when i was 14. i was standing at a youth event in a church in randalstown completely disinterested in the songs. i wasn’t a christian and nor was i interested…

but there was this guy drumming who caught my eye. he was going for it. good drummer, but more than that, he was making me believe that the song was true. his whole upper body moved in motion. he was putting everything he had into playing. he was probably the first whole body worshipper that i’d set my eyes on. dave was inspiring.

about 24 hours ago dave died and left this life to continue his worship of His Saviour. its tough and confusing in many ways. but i guess God has the whole world in His hands and i think i trust Him in this. not easy though…

i know God that You’re right there with Dave’s wife, Laura, his mum, dad, sisters and brothers. but i also pray that they would be especially aware of Your presence which brings strength, comfort, peace and even joy.

as i type i’m reminded about my lack of gratitude for so many things in life i just take for granted…
