My Inspiration for "In Reverence"

Just over 10 years ago, my wife and I took our four children to Cape Cod for a wonderful week of exploring beaches, navigating cute little villages, and discovering unique ice cream shops in little colonial houses.  One afternoon, we visited Sandy Neck Beach and engaged in all of the fun activities that people do at the beach, including playing in the water, catching sand crabs, making sand castles, and throwing the football.  While we were engaged in this fun, I looked in a western direction and gazed up at one of the most beautiful sunsets I had ever seen.  My family also noticed the amazingly beautiful sky.  We all spontaneously stopped what we were doing and looked at the setting sun with reverence for the natural beauty that we were experiencing.  As I looked around the beach, I was impressed that all of the other families had also stopped their activities and were staring at the sky in reverence.  Shortly thereafter, I composed "In Reverence" as a reminder to me of that profound experience that we shared as a family.  When I listen to "In Reverence," I am reminded of the quiet times in my life when I have been able to experience in reverence those things that are the most poignant, beautiful, and meaningful to me.  I feel fortunate that I have this photograph of my son Brendan and me from that day on the beach.

"In Reverence" has been streamed more than 65 million times on Pandora and has been consistently ranked in the Top 100 New Age Chart for iTunes USA.  If you have been touched by "In Reverence," I recommend that you also listen to my recordings, "Grateful," "Sacred," "Revelation," and "Grace."  You can listen to clips of these songs and others in the Music tab in this website.  Thanks for supporting my music and for listening to "In Reverence."

    Your song "In Reverence" is magical and an inspiration to me every time I hear it. My life hit a low point in 2012 due to some personal issues I was facing and in the process I lost the relationship I have with my five children. They have decided to cut ties with me at this point (all are grown). Your song takes me back to a time, much like you described, where I can see my children playing on the beach. A time I will always remember and hold dear in my heart, until the day they return. Thank you.

    David your song," In reverance has been a favorite of mine the past several years. I remember having a horrible day at school and coming back to my dorm and as the rain poured I heard this song come on. I stopped in my tracks and it ministered to me in ways. I felt God's perfect peace come over me as I was reminded of his grace to me. Thank you for writing this. It was so encouraging and inspiring to see what the song was it about and where it came from.

    After years of replaying "In Reverence" I randomly decided to look you up on Instagram. I was writing in my gratitude journal everyday and having my prayer sessions to your song. It brought me closer to God and I stepped into my dreams by replaying and manifesting greatness through the vibrations of this piece. It's the theme song of my life. Your honesty and purity translates through that song because I'm pretty sure God send angels to help you write it. Thank you 🙏🏽
