When I’m writing a new song, I am determined to make sure it has a good message that is going to help the listener is some way. Then I add the drums and various instrumental tracks as I hear them in my mind, hoping that the music will attract the right listeners. I had no clue though how HONEY I LOVE YOU would touch one in my audience two weeks ago. Read more
NEED TO BE FREE | Joseph James | [Official Lyric Video]
Lyrics & Chords
Relationships can and should be fun and free. We should be free to enjoy each other and to still pursue our individual dreams while supporting each other. In this, we can soar together on the heights and support each other through the tough times, the valleys as well. Destiny… Purpose… Dreams…

GONNA TURN IT AROUND | Joseph James | [Official Lyric Video]
Lyrics & Chords
Have you ever heard the term, “Laughter does good like a medicine?” Also, “the Lord laughs at [the wicked], for He sees that their own day [of defeat] is coming.” “The joy of the Lord is our strength!” Did you know that when we see things the way He does, we can join in with Him in the laughter and live in joy, knowing that no matter what comes our way, He has a way through it?
It’s time to shake off those things that have been holding us down, laugh again, party with friends and family, and just plain have some fun in the midst of our enemies. Jerry Savelle said, “If Satan can’t steal your joy, he can’t keep your goods.” Why would we want to let him keep our goods?
Come on America, it’s time to rise up and start dreaming again. AMERICA DARE TO DREAM Tour.

What happens when we meet an angel in the night? What happens when it’s not what we think it is? What are we going to do?
ON A COLD DARK NIGHT – © 02.18.21 w/m Joseph James
On a cold dark night. I heard a desperate plea, Crying out for help.

Book 4 is written and is now in the Proofreading Stage. ISLANDS IN THE SEA: A City On A Hill! – More information at the link below on the SAGA
On The Back Cover:
Dan, Susan, John, and Nikki answered the call in Islands In The Sea: The King Walks In! Book 1, in the The Lion Roars! Book 2, and then again in Illegitimate? Book 3, but now that one-third of the city is destroyed and under water, can they save the rest of the city. The cult is seeking revenge and the dark sentinels have moved to another vantage point, but something big and sinister is approaching quickly in the distance. Can they figure out the coded cave system before it’s too late and the rest of the city falls?
Today, we start filming the first segment for my new music video, A TABLE FOR TWO. We are filming in Homer, Alaska at the Land’s End Resort, The Chart Room Restaurant. Filming a night scene in the afternoon is tricky for sure, going to use the green screen. We could do it later in the evening, but in summer here, it doesn’t get dark.
Just finished editing and adding the last two songs I recorded live at the Homewood Suites, Katy | Houston, Texas in February. All 17 are in a playlist at the link below. I have another list of 10 I recorded in our portable studio when we were in Atlanta, GA, and a list of 6 instrumental songs as well that I put together in Colorado Springs, CO.
LIST OF SONGS:
ANGEL ON THE WAY [Live] | Joseph James
Angels are all around us as well as demons. They interact with our prayers and sometimes we get to see them. The power of prayer and the angels can change destinies helping us get through things miraculously. Never give up hope! Destiny!
LONELY ROAD [Live] | Joseph James
As I was writing this song, I was thinking about The Road Not Taken, by Robert Frost. There are many roads we can walk, but some seem especially lonely, until we discover something incredible along the way. There is a twist at the end of this song. I hope it blesses you in your journey. Destiny!
THERE YOU GO AGAIN [Live] | Joseph James
A romantic and joyful song with a little bit of adventure and love in the air. I wanted to write a lively and energetic love song and I hope you like it. Who is that someone special in your life?
LOVE SONG [Live] | Joseph James
I wrote LOVE SONG when I was going through a very difficult season in my life. It was one of my first on the piano as I was learning how to play it. I desperately needed the Lord’s manifest presence and love and He came through. No matter what, He is always near.
THE STRANGER [Live] | Joseph James
Who is the stranger? You might meet him where you least expect. At the end of the road, there is always a way through. At the end of love, there is a new love. Never, ever give up. Someone is watching and waiting.
IDENTITY [Live] | Joseph James
Identity – People searching for identity. I struggled with it for years until I found the answer for me. I hope this song blesses you.
THE OLD MAN [Live] | Joseph James
Have you ever met someone who you thought could see right through you to your core, to your soul. That is what this song is about. The old man, well, he’s a mystery. He’s gender-less on this planet as it could be anyone at anytime, but eternally, well, I’ve met Him. He can see right through whatever defenses we have. Let go! Be free!
FORGIVENESS IN THE FIRST DEGREE [Live] | Joseph James
Forgiveness in the First Degree | Do we know what we’ve really been forgiven of? It is that first-time revelation, when standing face to face with reality, that we begin to understand what Jesus did on the cross for us. It is that revelation that changes our lives forever. True freedom! Destiny!
SO BEAUTIFUL [Live] | Joseph James
Romance is in the air. Remembering the wedding day, that sparkle in your eyes. Sharing my heart with you for the rest of our lives. Love grows and the journey makes it stronger, day by day.
GOTTA BE REAL [Live] | Joseph James
Janiece and Joseph wrote this song together one month after their wedding. GOTTA BE REAL – Having experienced the Lord, they couldn’t play the games of religion. This song is about their life and about reality. Be Real!
FREE [Live] | Joseph James
Joseph wrote this song while he was going through a lot of struggles. He just wanted to be free. Sometimes we find that we are the one who is holding us back. How can we get free? How can we ever get to the place where we can be ourselves and be okay with it? Free!
SMOKING OF THE GUN [Live] | Joseph James
Do you know of someone who is deep in depression and suicidal? Joseph and his wife minister to those going through dark times, because they’ve both been there and made it through. If you read Janiece’s bio, http://sentencedtodeathdestinedforlife.com, you will see that she’s gone through multiple attempts in her past.
LOVE OF HIS LIFE [Live] | Joseph James
Joseph James wrote this song with a dual meaning. See if you can guess the two stories woven into one. At some point he’ll reveal both on this channel, Google+, and on his facebook fan page. Love is a funny thing sometimes. If we only look on the surface, we might just miss the whole thing. We can gain a complete perspective from a very old text. If you’re really determined and adventurous, you can find the an reference point and see if you’re right.
DESTINY [Live] | Joseph James
What is our destiny? Where are we heading? What will we find when we get there? Does it even matter? Destiny! Purpose!
EVERYONE WANTS TO BE LOVED [Live] – Joseph James
Love is a delicate and precious thing to find. Everyone searches for it, but few are they who find true love. Broken relationships and families can hold us back from experiencing all we can. So what are we to do? Where is this so-called thing called love? Everyone Wants To Be Loved!
HOUR OF MIDNIGHT [Live] | Joseph James
This is one of Joseph James’ earliest songs when he received a prophetic word from the Lord as he wrote this song. Parts of the song are taken from Ezekiel 34 and Isaiah 26. It is a clear warning from the Lord to those who are mistreating His people and building their own kingdoms with their own traditions and rules. He always provides a time for repentance and restoration before judgment comes. The Lord is setting His people free.
LOVE CALLS [Live] | Joseph James
Love Calls to us from afar. Can we hear its voice in the midst of all the other voices, confusion, lies, pain and strife? Can we hear the truth? There is a love that is true and yes, it is there for us to find.
I hope you enjoy the songs and that they bless and encourage you to follow your dreams. We are currently booking for the FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS Tour. If you’d like us to come to your community, please use the form on our contact page.

A Nightmarish Night
Dan awoke with a jolt, his body was wringing with sweat. “Was it real?” he thought. “No, it must have been a dream! I have to get some sleep. I’ve been tossing and turning all night. It is already 4:15 and I have to get up at six o’clock.” Read more
FREE BOOK! Starting tomorrow, Book 1 of my new trilogy, ISLANDS IN THE SEA!, is available for FREE for 5 DAYS ONLY on Kindle. You can download the Kindle app to your devices, phones, tablets, computers for free if you don’t have a Kindle.
I wanted to give everyone a heads up, because I tried to set it for two weeks, but Amazon only allows 5 days free. Please share and pass this link on to anyone you know who would like to read it and/or the series.
It is a romantic, prophetic, mystery, thriller type novel that interacts with the supernatural. Janiece’s doctor asked me yesterday how romance and prophecy go together. Well, he is going to read it for himself…lol. But let the reader beware, I’ve been told it is hard to put it down once you start. The adventure begins in a few hours…
