Malakh began seeking to please the Master in song around 2016 after years of hearing the Spirit continually commanding him to sing. So he would, but it would be while he was in congregational unison hymns, or a pre sermon hymn, and also worship among many. So the Lord united he and a very skilled vocalist/musician Felecia Bazile together in Holy Matrimony in 2003. Malakh was at the time serving/working in Word ministry as an assistant Pastor in Fort Wayne Indiana. Being very shy at stage performance of any kind he was not so much at teaching/preaching the Good News. In 2007 he was guided by the Spirit to move to Vegas where some of his family abode as he was instructed by God that He had a better ministry for him in this entertainment city. This Word was like a mystery for him and his wife for a while until his work slowed down very mysteriously, and God instructed him to help Felecia in her music project, whereby Malakh participated with her in the two songs she released. Her second release “All The Man” featuring Malakh seemed to do better in many venues than her first song “Come Back”, though “Come Back” has continued success. And it was her second song that was the Spirit’s confirmation that God had called Malakh to sing. Felecia went home to be with The Lord in 2019 with Malakh by her bedside, and he, Malakh, is continuing this work He (The Lord) has began with the two of them, to minister in song.
Many great song composers write out of life’s personal experiences and challenges. Well, this song was birth, in part, from various ministry opportunities.
Like the story of the Prodigal son, we sometimes give way to recklessly, unwise, and extravagant way/living. However, the blessing in the testimony is his repentant return to his father.
With all the challenges facing many, I believe this song will speak to the hearts of many. The lyrics are the focus point. A gentle word reminding listeners that God is yet calling and standing with out-stretched arms.
As we begin our journey through 2021, it’s refreshing to know that, despite life’s various challenges, God remains sovereign!!!
Grateful for your ministry and support of independent artist like myself.
