First songs posted, more to follow soon, stay tuned =) -God Bless! "For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. (NIV)" 2 Corinthians 4:17 Remember.....God Loves You! He loves you so much that he sent His only Son Jesus Christ to Earth over 2000 Years ago to win Eternal Life in Heaven for YOU, through his painful death of being nailed to a wooden cross as permanent payment for each one of us, as payment for ALL of our sins. Even if you were the only person on Earth, God would still do this just for You! Our troubles in life are many at times, but for those who have received the free gift of Eternal Life through faith in God's Son, Jesus Christ, The joy that we will experience at the end of our earthly lives when we are united with God and Jesus far outweigh the troubles that we suffered here on Earth. All people on Earth have sinned against God. The Holy Bible even says in the Book of Romans chapter 3 verse 23 (NIV) "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." It doesn't matter whether it is only one sin or 1 billion, Without personal acceptance of Jesus Christ's sacrifice of his own life as payment for mankind's sin, all of mankind is doomed to the same fate; eternal separation from God upon earthly death. However if you believe that Jesus Christ died to pay the penalty for your sins, you will live with God and Jesus in Eternal Joy in Heaven at the end of Your life on earth. This promise from God is feely offered to anyone regardless of what You have done or will ever do on earth. There are no sins that are unforgivable, and it is NEVER too late to receive Jesus Christ's free gift of eternal life and forgiveness of all sin through faith in his death over 2000 years ago as permanent payment for all of your sins. Christianity is not about trying to do a quota of good deeds or good works, having your good deeds outweigh bad deeds, never doing certain bad things, or otherwise earning your way into heaven through works. The only way to receive forgiveness of Sin and the gift of eternal life is through belief and faith that Jesus Christ, God's Son, came down to Earth from heaven, became human, lived a sinless life for us, died as a sinless person to pay for all of our sins, and raised up from the dead and returned to Heaven. The Holy Bible says in the Apostle Paul's letter to the Ephesians Chapter 2 Verses 8-9 (NIV) "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast." Also, Jesus Christ said in the Holy Bible Book of Revelation Chapter 3 verse 20 (NIV) "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me." This is the Door of your heart that Jesus is talking about. If you open the door of your heart to Jesus by believing what he has done for you, by dying for all of your sins, past present and future, then Jesus will enter your life when you open the door of your heart to him. You will then not only have the Guarunteed promise from God of eternal life, you will also experience peace of mind that can only be provided by God when Jesus Christ is in your life. Your problems on Earth will never go away, but God will give you peace and Encouragement that will enable you get through life's struggles. Please contact me any time if you would like to further discuss how to come to know Jesus Christ as your Savior and Friend. I do not know all of the answers about The Bible and Christianity, and I still struggle with sin, but I would be very happy to talk with You. Also if you have any prayer requests let me know and I would be very happy to pray for you. Hang in there and keep the Faith!! May God Bless You and always be with you in your Journey through life.

Momentary Trouble Song Lyrics:

SUSTAIN ME:
V1 When Im feeling burdened When Im feeling blue When I endlessly struggle Lord I crawl to You When I disobey You When my heart is untrue Still You never leave me Lord I crawl to you Chorus: Only You sustain me Only You are true Only You are faithful When evrethings unglued Only You are Holy. In spite of what I do, Still You never leave me Lord Im trusting You! V2: When there are no answers When my fate is in doubt When the storm engulfs me Your light leads me out When all else seems hopeless And the World doesn't care Your Love overwhelms me You are always there Repeat chorus V3: Lord You're always with me I know this is true Only You sustain me I forever praise You! (Copyright 2007-Momentary Trouble)

PSALM 142 (NIV)
I cry aloud to the Lord; I lift up my voice to the Lord for mercy. I pour out my complaint before him; before him I tell my trouble. When my spirit grows faint within me, it is you who know my way. In the path where I walk men have hidden a snare for me. Look to my right and see; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life. I cry to you, O Lord; I say, "You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living." Listen to my cry, for I am in desparate need; rescue me from those who pursue me, for they are too strong for me. Set me free from my prison, that I may praise your name. Then the righteous will gather about me because of your goodness to me. (NIV)
Why this name?
Inspired by The Bible Verse 2 Corinthians 4:17 (NIV): "For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all."
Do you play live?
I play Bass Guitar for my Church Worship Team on some Sundays.

I occasionally play Open Mic in the San Francisco CA Bay area.

First Momentary Trouble Concert was at XFEST NW in Sept 2007

We are always looking for more opportunities to play at Christian music festivals and at local venues
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I think that both have been a great help for the listener; they have made music much more affordable, sometimes even free, and much easier to get the music, no driving and waiting in line at record stores for overpriced new CDs, or waiting weeks and weeks to get albums by mail order plus paying expensive shipping charges. The ability to download music is Great. The only disadvantage is that sometime you dont get the album artwork or liner notes with downloaded music, although this can and is often provided with some of the downloaded songs.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Mabye someday......
