I released a new single entitled 1113.
What is 1113?
No it’s not some bible verse or some code for a ‘movement’. It’s just a special date that is private between my wife and I (and will stay that way).
But to address the song’s meaning in more general terms let me elaborate.
It’s an anthem for faithfulness in marriage. Fidelity. I met my wife in 1998, so I’ve known her nearly 20 years (I reference this in the song). I feel that many believers spend way too much time focusing on the false and telling others how false it is. Not that we shouldn’t be doing it, but we emphasize it a lot. I felt as a contrast to that we should also be putting a spot light on the things in which are true and authentic. Faithfulness in marriage, not just marriage alone, is one of those things I believe to authentically reflect eternal truth.
My father in the Lord has an example he uses to illustrate this point. It’s about how agents who deal with currency are taught how to spot counterfeit bills. And how during their training they are not given the counterfeit, but real bills. They are taught to become so familiar with real currency that when they come across counterfeit they can identify it immediately.
I believe the same is true in life. If we become so familiar with truth and the authentic that when we encounter fallacy it will be evident to us.
I hope you enjoy the track and pass it along to others
