To fear or not to fear. That is the question.

2 Timothy 1: 7 - "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."

Today as I sit here on the eve of the album release concert, there are two very real thoughts/fears running around in my head. They're the fear of failure and the fear of success. When stepping out to do any type of project or endeavor these thoughts always like to try and rear their heads. You'll start asking yourself questions like what if this doesn't work out or what if I'm not ready for this. Well at least these questions like to swirl around in my head from time to time. The good thing about these fears and questions are that it's my choice as to whether I accept and dwell on them, or just step up to the challenge, enjoy the ride, and see what happens, and on June 7th at Heritage theatre that's exactly what I'm doing!

Before the release of this project I was always the guy there to lend support to the other artists or musicians that I was playing with. This aspect of playing and performing had started to come easy to me, I still had the I want to do a good job nerves, but I was comfortable doing it, and it's always in these moments of comfortability that God decides to shake things up in my life. And shake it up he has. This Friday, June 7, I will be stepping into unfamiliar territory in the role of "frontman " as I present, Love Extravagant, to the audience. To be honest with you...I'm pretty excited about it! The whole process of creating this album has been my own, personal walking on the water experience, and I'm looking to taking another step of faith on this journey. The band and I have put in a lot of hours practicing getting ready for this show. So all who attend better be ready to "let the groove get in," as one of the other Justin's would say.

Love Extravagant is available now on iTunes and Amazon
