1983 Holds A Secret To My Rock Music Song 'Hope On My Horizon'.
I was a young New Zealand rock music artist dressed in pink tees and ripped jeans.
I pranced about on huge stages. Strangers in the street knew my name.
But all the bright lights and loud music didn’t quiet that nagging voice that was inside of me.
I just wanted to be somebody. Not a household-name rock music god kind of somebody. I wanted to be somebody that made a difference.
It was then I found myself standing somewhere very different from the stages I was used to.
I was on board a tour of the Mercy Ships Anastasis while it was in the visiting the port of Wellington. The ship was truly impressive. The people on board and their purpose however were unlike anybody I'd ever come across before in my life.
- They amazed me by all being volunteers who paid their own way to be on board the Mercy Ship.
- They inspired me with how they searched out others in desperate need to help them.
- They gave hope to people who had run out of answers.
- They did all of this for free!
They also made me feel utterly useless. All my rock star swagger didn’t matter an ounce.
The angels of Mercy Ships were the real deal. They sailed to the poorest places on the planet and poured out help and healing – for free.
All my rock music songs didn’t count for much in comparison.
It was all too much so I pushed the feelings aside and carried on with my rock-n-roll dream.
30 years later hope hijacked me and the courageous plan to create "Hope On My Horizon" was born …
But I'm getting ahead of myself!
