I wrote this song in the middle of tremendous personal upheaval. It is the cry of my heart that whenever my heart is overwhelmed, when my world is falling, I should turn to Jesus in faith rather than succumb to worry or fear. It has also been my constant experience that it in by praying to, hoping and trusting in God that I find my greatest strength and comfort. Always.
I first envisioned this instrumental piece as a movie, tv or video game soundtrack. It starts with a theme played on piano/bell synths, which is then varied with violin, string ensemble and cello sounds. It gradually builds to an orchestral climax before resolving gently. As I worked, I later envisioned this as accompanying the act of Creation as described in Genesis 1. Hence, the title, “In the Beginning”.
