The Judas Kiss

You wake to find another day waiting
Breathing deep you draw the curtains wide
Slowly thoughts start passing through you mind
Something’s very wrong deep down inside
Could it be the thoughts you were thinking?
Could it be the company you know?
Could it be the darkness you’ve been dreaming?
Maybe it’s that Judas kiss you sow
~ E.M.

Holding on to You

Bible-Guitar banner Logo

Hi Friends,

Mankind has been singing prayers to God from the beginning of time, and so it is that this month I offer a prayer in song from a new collection called Endurance.

I’ve known of your love
And I hunger for more
Broke without grace
I’m knocking at your door

Love I long to know
Sharpen and refine
Lost without you
Oh, for love divine

I’m holding on to you
I’m holding on to you

Begin anew in me
Speak to my soul
Strength to rise
Hear my prayers of ol’

When I’m hurt by the harshness
When this cold world is heartless
All through the darkness
I’m holding on to you

~ Eddy Mann

It’s life’s hills and valleys that tend to define our journey. This month I find myself back in my northern digs. This change of location is six weeks early, but loving relationships require a flexible calendar. My father-in-law took ill while we were down south and coming north was the right compassionate thing to do. So here we are, not particularly happy with the weather, but still relishing in the blessings that spring has to offer.

April’s song, Holding On To You, is the first of a collection of sung prayers that I’ll be releasing over the next few months. The collection is called Endurance and was written back in 2011. Through God’s timing it appears that now is the time to share them with you.

This past month I started reading a book called ‘The Master’s Men‘ by William Barclay. It’s not new, it was originally published in 1959 and I’m reading a 1985 edition. It was recommended to me as a character study of the Apostles. So far I’ve really enjoyed a deeper understanding of the part each disciple played in the Jesus story.

Please continue to enjoy ‘The State of MannSpotify playlist, and keep a watch out for the Homeward Bound series on facebook, twitter and instagram.

King of Creation

Hi Friends,

My prayer is that this months’s song will comfort and strengthen you as you continue along your journey.

Beautiful Savior
King of Creation
Son of God and Son of Man
Truly I’d love Thee
Trust I’d serve Thee
Light of my soul, my Joy, my Crown

Fair are the meadows
Fair are the woodlands
Robed in flowers of blooming spring
Jesus is fairer
Jesus is purer
He makes our sorrowing spirit sing

King of Creation
We praise Your name

Beautiful Savior
Lord of the nations
Son of God and Son of Man
Glory and honor
Praise adoration
Now and forevermore be Thine

~ Joseph Seiss, Eddy Mann

 March Notebook

The new month includes some time in Key West to catch up with the family Conchs that I haven’t seen in a few years. And the road down will allow for a visit with an artist friend which prayerfully will bear fruit in the form of a live or future in studio podcast. Stay tuned!

I’ve created a Spotify playlist that shares my ever changing soundscape called ‘The State of Mann.’ Please feel free to join me by following it. On my reading list this past month has been Margaret Feinberg’s ‘Taste and See,’ a global culinary and spiritual adventure in discovering God among butchers, bakers, and fresh food makers, that to this point has been a savoring experience.

Homeward Bound will continue as the Spirit moves. Our journeys at times can seem so isolated, but what we’re experiencing is communal in that at one time or another we’re all walking the same path and being guided by the same loving hands. So please continue to keep an eye out on facebook, twitter and instagram as these events unfold, and as always share how the Spirit moves you.
