Initially, the title references a theory that the creations of the earth are designed by an intelligent, creative (and at times humorous) being. The album artwork alludes to this design, with a depiction of “The Divine Proportion” by the great Leonardo Da Vinci. Included in His creative genius come the many talents and gifts given to each of us, through which we access the holy in each of us, from the gifts of art to oration, physical prowess to science.
But “Divine Design” has its most powerful meaning when we accept that we are here by Divine Design; finding what that plan is, and how to use our gifts, for each of us can be a lifelong struggle or an instant recognition at the age of five. Whichever it may be for you, the plan is real, and begs you to take hold of it.
Each of the songs on this album is an expression of my own divine design. I believe my path is to worship our Heavenly Father through music, and each song offers a new opportunity to do so. I hope that at least one of these songs will get stuck in your head in a way you can’t explain, and that you will try to explore why. I believe that through this process, if only for a few moments, the divine plans given to both of us will intersect.
