Hello Readers, welcome to the ‘Walk to Glory’ dance floor!
My name is D J Audio Prophet. I became a follower of Jesus in 1985 and started DJing about 10 years later (1995).
I am really interested in networking/talking and generally looking at ways to use music to connect with our creator God. I hope that over the next few weeks, months and years we will be able to help, support and create amazing opportunities for people who love dance/house music to engage with God and bring people closer to Him using the music we love most.
For now I want to say very little as we see who is out there.
Whoever you are, get in touch, say hello. My hope is that a community of dance and music lovers will be able to come together to use the gifts we have been given to engage, worship, go deeper into what we were created to be and at the same time facilitate lifting Jesus up as we bow down.
God Bless you all on the floor or in the booth.
DJ Audio P
‘Grace makes beauty out of ugly things’ – (Bono U2)
Song lyrics are very poignant to many of us and tend to remind us of a specific period in our lives, or of a relationship we shared. Coupled with the melodic tunes good lyrics can stir up emotions deep within us that sometimes reduce us to tears of both joy and sadness.
As a child I was exposed to Country & Western, Calypso, Reggae and a style of Caribbean music aptly named ‘Lovers Rock’. I remember this distinctly because at the weekends my father would ocasionally take himself off to the front room of our home (the best room). After a hard week of working in a cotton mill this was one of his ways of relaxing where he had a well kept radio-gram record player and a light maple coloured wooden box full of 7″ inch singles which I must say he kept in perfect order. He would take with him a packet of Monkey Nuts and either two bottles of Newcastle Brown Ale or two cans of Long Life Lager, then sit in the room for a couple of hours listening to his records. i assume that they reminded him of his youth back in Barbados’.He referred to his place of birth as “Back home”
I remeber distinctly the chorus of one record in particular that used to resound in my head whilst I would lay upstairs in my bed late on summers evening. At the tender age of ten years old these lyrics created my image of what perfect love should be like.
What’s in this world with me,
Goes where I go?
Shares all my dreams with me,
I need to know.
In life we search,
And some of us find.
I’ve searched for you my love,
A long, long time.
And now that I’ve found you,
You are all that I see.
Come take my hand
And walk through this world with me.
It is funny how this chorus still means a lot to me, but for a different reason other than intended by the original writer.
It relates to my standing with God in whom I place my trust.
