Every Little Thing

f1e4b-back2bcover2bpic2b1a2bbanner

Hi Friends,

As October arrives I find myself once again chasing summer. The quest to be walking at the ocean’s edge is something I live with all year round so there’s nothing unusual going on here. Following hurricane Florence’s visit I stopped off in Virginia Beach, VA for a weekend of events, and then spent the following weekend at a Tent Revival in Spindale, NC. The next chapter will take place back on my favorite barrier island in sunny Florida.

Every little thing these days reminds me of God. Whether it’s the blessings I continue to receive, the daily opportunities to serve, or the chance to be sharpened by adversity, it’s all delivered in a loving packaged of grace.

The new album (Worship in Spirit and Truth) drops this coming Friday, October 05, and the early returns have been humbling. Thanks again to each and everyone of you who take the time to share with me.

Call me, text me, tweet me, message me, email me, write me… we’ve been brought together by God for a reason.

As always, remember you can send an anonymous email to prayer@eddymann.com for prayers and encouragement.

Pray on,
Eddy

Hi Friends,

Last month during my yearly eye exam it was discovered that I had a torn retina in my left eye. When I asked if it was serious they said they were scheduling me for laser surgery the following morning. Amazingly I didn’t experience the normal warning signs. There were no flashes of light or noticeable vision changes. Afterwards I began to realize the blessings and just how fortunate I was that the retina hadn’t become detached. I was blessed to have scheduled, and kept my yearly appointment. And I’m blessed to live in an age of laser surgery where I could continue a normal lifestyle immediately.

As is my way, I began to pray over what had happened and what I could learn from it. I immediately realized that I was four weeks into a nine week run of events where my focus has been on recognizing God’s beauty through nature.

During the past month I’ve really championed God’s creation but never once took into consideration that it could only be achieved by the miraculous gift of sight.

Sheepishly I now have the opportunity to share my brokenness in maybe taking that gift for granted.

Call me, text me, tweet me, message me, email me, write me… we’ve been brought together by God for a reason.

The three-step release of the ‘Worship in Spirit and Truth’ album is scheduled to begin on September 07, 2018 with the ‘Worship in Spirit EP’. This will be followed by the ‘Worship in Truth EP’ on September 21, 2018. The EP’s will only be available on the eddymann.com website. The ‘Worship in Spirt and Truth’ album will drop everywhere on October 5, 2018.

It’s been quite some time since I released any new songs for the church and I’m really excited about this project. Some of these songs have become a staple of my worship events over the past three years and so I’ve seen how God has used them in the lives of others. And now I look forward to sharing them with all of you!

The Courtship

f1e4b-back2bcover2bpic2b1a2bbanner

Hi Friends,

After laying low for a few months and settling into my new southern digs, I’m excited about the next nine weeks. As I head north there are twenty dates booked, a Direct-to-Vinyl session in Brooklyn, NY, and a new Worship album wrapping up. As always I’m in awe of the blessings that I call my life.

As we travel along this courtship with eternity there’s so much to be learned, so much to be achieved, and so much to be grateful for… the connected dots are stunning when we sit back and see our Maker’s loving and creative hands at work.

It’s this overflowing joy that’s racing through my soul that drives me to want to continue to share with you in fellowship, sing with you in worship, and walk with you on this journey.

Call me, text me, tweet me, message me, email me, write me… we’ve been brought together by God for a reason.

Cowboy in the Badlands

Hi Friends,

As I sense the current season of my life changing, I’m excited about what the future holds. Those of you who know me well, know that I embrace change and find it ever inspiring. I’ve been based in the Mid-Atlantic region for most of my life and am now entering a new season where a beautiful barrier island in south Florida will be called home for seven to eight months a year. Though the change is a pleasant one, it comes with an enormous amount of balancing as there are endless loose ends to tie up. I rest in the knowledge that He shepherds me, and I never am, or will be, in a place of want (Psalm 23:1).

So join me in opening my arms to the future, to all that the summer holds, and to all the blessings that await us.

Call me, text me, tweet me, message me, email me, write me… we’ve been brought together by God for a reason.

Create In His Name

IMG_9845

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. (Gen 1:27 ESV)

I’m currently the owner of a clear mind and I’m loving it. It’s a mind that’s free from darkness, it’s free from obscurity, and it’s even free from cloudiness. It’s dictionary clear. There’s no discoloration, no defects, not even a blemish. It’s a gift that’s been lovingly given to me, and graciously received.

It’s with this new found clear mind that I’ve become truly inspired to create again. As I was walking through my previous season of servanthood, I neglected to keep a balance in my life, and I wandered away from the God given gifts that were there to feed and strengthen me.

I wasn’t aware of it at the time, but by not having symmetry in my life, I was missing some deep emotional opportunities to be creative.

But I’m now experiencing a heightened sense of harmony. I’m beginning to explore other areas of expression. Some of these I haven’t visited before, and a few others are outlets I’ve long left behind.

And he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, with intelligence, with knowledge, and with all craftsmanship, to devise artistic designs, to work in gold and silver and bronze, (Ex35:3-32 ESV)

I’m not sure where any of this will lead, but that doesn’t seem to matter at the moment as the journey itself seems to be the most important thing right now.

Embracing the process is a luxury that sometimes gets lost when we find ourselves being enslaved to deadlines.

While in the studio I’ve had to remind myself on more than a few occasions to remember that this is fun. That’s how and why I fell in love with it in the first place. I create for that exciting moment when a mistake becomes the catalyst for something beautiful and new. I wonder for the stream of conscious work that seems to have been created by someone else when experienced the following morning. I have to be more mindful of not letting go of that.

And so that’s where I find myself at the moment. I’m filled with this childlike enthusiasm, and I can’t wait to open my new box of crayons… whatever that may be. And that in itself is motivating me to see, hear and think about things differently.

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men. (Col 3:23 ESV)

This place that I dwell in right now has been provided by Him. The surrounding expressions of love and wonder have been produced by Him. The gifts have been bought and strategically placed are by Him.

So one thing’s for sure, I’m wholly inspired by the Author of all things, I’m encouraged by the love that He lavishly expresses over my life, and I’m honored to be given the opportunity to create in His name.

Pray on,

Eddy
