Wow! Vandag klop my hart van dankbaarheid! So jaar en ñ half gelede het ek besluit om ñ nuwe projek aantepak. Ek het begin skryf aan liedjies wat op die nuwe album sou kom....nie net skryf nie maar ook besluit om self aan die stuur van die produksie te wees. Dit was baie harde werk maar gelukkig het ek ongelooflike talentvolle mense om my gehad wat tot laat saam met my in my studio gewerk het aan die projek. Mense soos Gavin Wickham, Dewald Koekemoer, Michael Wickham en Dalene Louw. Dankie vir almal van julle se harde werk! Al die laat aande se werk is vanoggend genomineer vir ñ Ghoema toekenning in beste Rock Album katagorie! Alle eer gaan aan my Hemelse Daddy wat my gespaar het om my stories te kan vertel in die vorm van musiek. “Anderkant Die Highway” behoort aan Hom en aan almal wat na die songs luister!!!!

Hier is die woorde van my lied 'Vry' vanaf die 'Anderkant Die Highway' album. 

 

Vry - Gert Koevert

 

Ek sien Jou oë

Dit kyk tot diep binne my

Dit sien die seer

van al jare se probeer

 

En ek roep

Met die hoop dat Jy hoor

My stem weergalm teen berge

Tot ook die sterre my kan hoor

 

Nou’s ek vry

Vry om lief te kan hê

Vry om soos Jesus te loop

Geen vingers te wys 

my vyande te wys

Liefde net soos Hy

 

En ek soek

Soek na die antwoorde van bo

Ek het die wêreld deurkruis

My siel verloor op die reis

 

En nou staan ek hier

Op my knieë by die kruis

Ek het my antwoord gekry

 

Ek’s van my kettings bevry

So help my asseblief

Om deur nuwe oë te kyk

En om elke dag

Meer en meer soos U te lyk

 

En nou’s ek vry

Ek glo dat ñ ‘dankbare hart’ die rigting van die res van jou dag en jou lewe kan bepaal.... As ek voel die lewe raak te veel vir my en die donkerte my wil begin toevou.......dis dan wanneer ek myself forseer om my aandag te fokus op dinge waarvoor ek dankbaar kan wees. Al is dit hoe klein...... Daardie ‘mindset’ laat die negatiewe gedagtes vinnig vlug...

2 Chronicles 20:21-22

 

Sometimes the scary mountain in-front of us is in reality God’s Holy Mountain. It really is the mountain of miracles. Though it might look treacherous and impossible to conquer. God promises us that He will straighten our paths, that He will carry us through. God don’t want us to make plans to avoid the climb over steep and dangerous rock faces. He don’t want us to take the winding road around the Holy Mountain. No, in-fact He is calling us towards His mountain. To the mountain where true heavenly miracles is waiting for you. To there were your life will be transformed and to where all glory will belong to Him. “I call out to the Lord, and he answers me from his holy mountain.” Psalm 3:4 NIV

The Unseen Young

In the haunting chill of the neon night
vanished children seek a place to hide
Their silent screams echoes through
the stinking streets not belonging to you

Run for cover take refuge from the cold
with night comes sorrow buried in yesterday’s mould
I wipe my tears with sweet lullabies
behind the rubble of my mothers lies

On my knees, yes I will beg
at a grave next to my daddy’s bed
Please sir look deep inside
these two eyes they tell no lies

Paper-prints on my skin
tells the story of the world within
Show me love I’ve never seen
to heal these scares deep within

G. Koevert

With winter approaching Johannesburg, South Africa the thought of our homeless kids out in the cold winter streets, really keeps me up at night. It’s just wrong that in 2018 kids should grow up without homes, without people who care or any kind of hope for the future. The sad part is that most of us go about our daily life totally ignoring this huge problem. Sometimes just sharing a bit of love with those who don’t have could change the direction of their path. Just something to think about.......

    

Songs on my piano

Sitting side by side
very different, but all together
Each singing a note
which we call our own
Many stories have been written
using the voice of you and me
from deep to high 
major, minor we tell no lie
On my own I’m just a voice
together with you my friend
we can write a new song
and let the world rejoice

G. Koevert

So as I was sitting in front of my piano this morning it became clear how similar we are to the piano. 

Noticing all the keys next to each other, some black some white, but not one sounding the same. Playing one note will not create beautiful music, but play all the different keys together and music can be created.

We are all different, with different characters, personalities and thoughts, but if we embrace the differences with a creative heart we can make music that will change the world.
