DARE TO DREAM | JOSEPH JAMES | (Official Music Video)

What is it about America that attracts so many people from other countries? It’s the ability to live in freedom and pursue your own dreams. America’s heritage is about a people who come together in tough times to help each other and the country as a whole. It was built on sacrifice and bravery so that’s it’s people could live in peace with one another and from enemies on the outside.

America still stands for freedom and peace. Although it isn’t perfect, We The People are responsible as individuals to do their part to see our rights are protected. It is also our individual responsibility to treat one another with respect, honor and dignity. There are always forces that would try to tear us apart, to divide and conquer, but they have underestimated the power that is in the culture of America itself.

It is within this culture that many Americans need to remember who we are and rekindle the hope, the destiny, the purpose that spur each individual on to become the person they were created to be, working together and helping each other become more and as a whole a generation that brings hope to the world, showing other countries that they too, can create their own freedom in their own countries. There’s a cost and a tremendous price, but overthrowing evil rulers has always come at a cost.

I wrote this song because of all the folks I’ve talked to here in the USA who were on the verge of giving up and ending their lives. Come on folks, we live in the greatest nation on the earth. We have our problems, but if we can come together and help one another in times of catastrophe, why not on a daily basis. A kind word, a smile and a simple hand to help can save someone’s life and give them hope again. I believe in America. I believe in my fellow citizens. I believe we can do it.

I’m starting a new tour in 2020. AMERICA DARE TO DREAM 2020 Tour. We’re going wherever we can and are invited and even county fairs to bring this message. It’s time for us to encourage each other, listen to each others dreams and start to help each other succeed. It’s time for America to win for our families, our neighbors, our nation and our world. Let hope spring up. Let’s all stand up, THIS IS AMERICA, WHERE WE DARE TO DREAM!

Thank you for listening to this song and passing it on to one another. I hope it sparks something inside of each of us so that we rise up again, discover our dreams and fly… Blessings in your journey and I hope to see you somewhere on the road with our new AMERICA DARE TO DREAM 2020 Tour.

I literally wrote this song because of all of my conversations in driving for Lyft here in Colorado Springs, Colorado and from our many divine encounters over the last 6 years of traveling with my Follow Your Dreams Tour across the country and Alaska.

I didn’t realize at the time that I included the instrumental track for America The Beautiful that Pikes Peak was the mountain that inspired that song. I had already planned to put the mountain in the background so it just made it that much more special to me as I stood on top of Pulpit Rock for the filming of this video.

My passion in writing, singing and in wanting to see our country come back together where we become Americans again, helping one another, and encouraging each other, was the driving force behind the creation of this song.

I’m tired of hearing people telling me they’re on the edge of giving up, or helping others pick up the pieces from a loved one who chose to go the way of suicide. I want to be on the other side of this. I want to talk about dreams and hope. Come on neighbors we are better than this. We’ve risen to the challenge in all the wars we’ve fought over the years when we were challenged. We’ve come together as a country and we became stronger. Let’s not let this generation be the one that let’s it all fall apart from within.

We must become the change we want to see, not just keep pointing out the faults and blaming others. I hear immigrants tell me all the time that this is the greatest country in the world. Sure we have short comings, but we can overcome them. We The People are responsible for this country, not the politicians. If real freedom is what really matters to us, then we must stand up, united, and proclaim it. Then we must join our hands together and walk with each other until it becomes a reality. It has taken people to this point of division in our country, but we can be better than they are and we can and must rise above it.

We can change our nation and become that which our ancestors fought so hard to start, the land of the free and home of the brave. Dare we let their blood be in vain? No! I say, “Let us DARE TO DREAM again.”

I was in Charleston, SC the day of the shooting there. That town rejected the hate message and instead, 15,000 of us spanned the 1.9 miles of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge to show the love. That day, love won. The media were flying helicopters over us and filming. There were folks from all over the world and many different cultures. We were talking to each other and hugging each other. We didn’t even know each other, but it was the passion of love that spurred us on. Love wins! Blessings to you in your journey and Dare To Dream again. Let’s do this.

One of my dreams is to sing this song live in Washington DC, July 4, 2020, to declare these words over America. Let Freedom Ring! Someone once said it’s better to shoot for the stars and land on the moon than never to have dreamed at all. Yes! Let’s see how far we can go! Dreams! They change everything!

DARE TO DREAM – w/m Joseph James

Tommy’s on the front porch sorting through the lies.
Julie’s in the kitchen with tears in her eyes.
Dreams are all planned and a path to run.
Storms all around, can they weather this one?

CHORUS
This is America, where dreams come true!
This is America, home of the red, white, and blue!
This is America, where freedoms ring!
This is America, where we dare to dream!

Ben’s up on the bridge, looking over the rail.
He didn’t see it coming, what an epic fail.
Everything is gone and all seems lost.
Picking up the pieces, is it too great a cost?

Our dreams are all planned as best as we see.
But when it goes bad can we see through the trees.
The forest’s still there, but we’re lost in the night.
If we just keep going, we can find the light.

HEALING | DELIVERANCE | WARRIOR STATUS

Some training and encouragement this morning. HEALING | DELIVERANCE | WARRIOR STATUS. We talk to a lot of folks we see in our travels who want to know more about us and how we walk with the Lord. It is evident, they don’t have access to the teaching and training we’ve had and share, so I’m starting to use these videos to do that. Because of our current living situation here in Colorado Springs, I don’t have a set time and day to do these. The hotel is letting me use another room to film these. So grateful.

If you’d like to get the notifications when I’m LIVE, please like this FB page. If you like what you hear, please pass it on to others. Where are we in our walk with the King? Are we the warriors He’s called us to be, or do we simply follow others? Choices!

God’s Restoration

Sometimes we get separated from people we’re close to, and sometimes lose touch and wonder where they went, but when it comes to a family member, it can be traumatic. I lost touch with my daughter when she was two weeks old. It was the one and only time I’d see her until… God’s Restoration! That restoration birthed a song in me that helped me navigate the journey when the connection was restored. 27 YEARS AGO.

GREATER THINGS

Great. Mathew 18:3! A child believes everything as they haven’t been tainted by deceit yet. If we can get back to that innocence, by choice and His grace, we’ll be able to see what He saw and do what we see our Father in heaven doing, because He went to be with His Father and sits next to Him on the throne interceding for us. If, by choice, we do what we see Father doing, we’ll go from victory to victory like Him. Early this morning, as I was in and out of sleep, I was shown some things in the Spirit. GREATER THINGS…

THIS DAY Lyric Video | Joseph James

Today is the day! What are we going to do with it? There is someone close by who wants to be a part and to help. Can we see them? It doesn’t have to be a lonely walk, rather it can become an adventure in this life’s journey. Listen to the new song by Joseph James. THIS DAY!

ON COMMON GROUND

Over the last 5.5 years, we have traveled the USA, Canada and Alaska, going where the Lord told us to go with my business paying our way, with the exception of a small amount of donations. We’ve experienced many miracles in the journey and lots of divine appointments when we arrived at our destinations. We mainly stayed in Hilton brand hotels over the last four years, giving us Diamond Status for those four years. We’ve seen a lot and experienced a great deal more. It’s one thing to turn on the news to see what’s going on, it’s another to be there in some of it. Believe me, the actual sometimes has little to do with what’s reported. Even in the churches, there’s a lot being said about those on the outside that’s simply not true in many cases. If we are ever to make any kind of long-lasting difference in our generation, we’re going to have to refocus. ON COMMON GROUND…

Building A City

There was once a wealthy man who wanted to build a city for his workers to honor, care for, and to protect them. His workers had built many elegant and strategic projects for him, so he wanted to help them have a place of their own to rest and have fun without fearing the raiding parties of evil that lurked in the surrounding mountains. At various times of the year, the raiding parties would sweep down out of the mountains and do much damage to the area cities and harm the people. Building a city…

Eliminating Fear

Fear is the destroyer of dreams and everything good and eliminating fear is of utmost priority. Out of it comes all kinds of evil, greed, murder, envy, jealousy, hate, etc. These are all born out of fear. True Love conquers all fear, but how do you get it? How can one overcome the fear in their life to live the dreams they were destined for? It’s a journey…
