Who is this Jamin guy anyway?
I am the husband of one and the father of nine. I was created to sing, to worship, to encourage, and to be steady. I am the Owner & Executive Director of Trinity Arts Center, a multi-disciplinary Arts Center in Eastern Tennessee, and the President of Trinity Arts Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization focused on funding arts education and performance. I've been involved with four music projects in my life -- Hot Pink Turtle, Spin Radio, Stand Like Stone, and of course, Jamin Rathbun.

Psalm 139
O LORD, you have searched me and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise. You perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down.
You are familiar with all my ways.

Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD.
You hem me in, behind and before. You have laid your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there. If I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,
Even there your hand will guide me. Your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,"
Even the darkness will not be dark to you.
The night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.

For you created my inmost being.
You knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Your works are wonderful. I know that full well.

My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me were written in your book,
before one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand.
When I awake, I am still with you.

If only you would slay the wicked, O God! Away from me, you bloodthirsty men!
They speak of you with evil intent. Your adversaries misuse your name.
Do I not hate those who hate you, O LORD, and abhor those who rise up against you?
I have nothing but hatred for them. I count them my enemies.

Search me, O God, and know my heart.
Test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.

I take a lot of comfort from the lows and highs God shows us in David, the story of a King, a fugitive, an adulturer and -- a murderer that God calls "a man after His own heart." I can't tell you how often I've been encouraged, taught, and inspired by David's words, expressed in these moments of transparency, passion, and awe.

Jeremiah 29:13
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
