Author or Scribe?

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17

Every good gift is from above, from Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith. So are we truly authors and songwriters? Or simply scribes – artisans attuned to the heartbeats of the Creator, interpreting whispers on paper or canvas, lyric or melody, at the Lord’s leading.

John G. Adams – Scribe?

A construction estimator and self-admitted math-lete by trade. Yet when his “Clark Kent” emerges from the phone booth, he is part musician, part author, wanderer and ponderer, praise warrior and Jesus freak. He lives south of San Antonio, Texas with his bride of 30+ years and a daughter, who together, make the world a better place.

“Blessed in Great Measure” is a reflection of who I am. “Measure” as a verb is what I do, taking a blueprint and turning it into a real project. “Measure” as a noun in a musical sense, is a building block, the foundation of a song. “Measure”, as a noun meaning quantity, is certainly how I have been blessed. In all three, a “great measure” can be the difference between mediocrity and greatness.
