Welcome to the blog of Phil Stacey.
The timing couldn't be more perfect. I am a musician who is taking his first steps into the waters of a new format. It's very exciting. And as I start this journey, I am reminded:
More than ten years ago, I heard a preacher speak on Psalms 139:23-24, which says, "Search Me, O God and know my heart; try me and know my thoughts. See if there be any wicked way in me and lead me in the way everlasting." It was a very inspiring message and I decided to make that verse my daily prayer.
I think it is the perfect prayer of dedication. And since I first began praying it, I have seen how He has taken my life, which had become accustomed to failure, and blessed it beyond measure. I hope the stories and lessons I share in the coming days and weeks serves as encouragement to you as you strive to surrender completely to His plan for you.
I should preface this series by saying that I am not perfect. I am haunted by a dark side, much like the disciple John and just about every other artist I know. I will forewarn you that I intend to be very candid with my struggles... But this page is my outlet to write openly about my experiences in hopes that it connects with you on some meaningful level.
And I truly do hope it does.
