‘Now choose life’…. (Deut 30:19).
Choosing life doesn’t meant we can choose everything about life to be the way we want. This songs about the most important choice we make every day, even when there are aspects of life that can’t be chosen we can ‘choose life itself’.
Cheryl and I went to see someone in hospital and were both tremendously impacted by the the extreme edge that challenges life itself, not all of it could be understood but in writing this song I wanted to capture the intensity, rawness and importance of the choice itself.
Its recorded at a camp in a live worship setting with the whole band, you’ll hear some interesting notes, just like in ‘life’ they are not predictable.
