“If I Can Move the Mountains” – Lyric Video
The lyrics are not strictly autobiographical, but I wrote it about “me … and everyone else” who was in some form of church ministry, big or small. Ministry is a calling, but it can be dog-eat-dog at times, toxic at times, a big strain on mental health at times (a topic that is more comfortably discussed today than it was in 2003). This song is about that journey. The change from self-doubt to certainty mid-song is abrupt. But that transition in actuality represents varying periods of growth for each person.
