Encouraging Impact & Productivity

Thank you so much for your prayers, involvement, and support for Heartfelt Music Ministry. We are moving full speed ahead to accomplish our goals. Here’s what we are striving towards:

 

  • Encourage Intimacy with God
  • Empower Excellence in Artistry
  • Express Truth through Positive Music
  • Increase an Optimistic Influence
  • Infuse a Christ-Centered World View

 

A young person who attended my Christmas concert online in December, sent me the most encouraging email. He stressed what an impact one line made for him in my song Mary Christmas, “Be still and know He is Lord,” from Psalm 46:10. In the wake of this global pandemic, national upheaval, crazy weather, and personal concerns, it is so refreshing to stop for a significant amount of time and reflect on how God is still Lord through it all.

 

We just released for worldwide distribution the new album Heartfelt Worship. I remastered 17 songs of mine with full band from the two discontinued albums Heartfelt Praise and Here To Worship. You can hear clips of each song at Heartfelt Worship on HearNow.com. It is available on iTunes, Amazon, Pandora, Spotify, and other sites. You can purchase physical CDs at our website. I’ll be doing a home concert this Sunday, on February 21st emphasizing the importance of being intimate with God and caring for others. Join me on Facebook LIVE at our Heartfelt Music Page on Facebook.

New Instrumental Album

This week is Winter Break at Valley Christian Schools, which has given me time to write completely new guitar instrumental songs. It will be called Instrumental Guitar, Vol. 2. We’re aiming to get it out early May. There are easy listening fingerstyle songs, upbeat songs like Abundant Sunshine, and some jazzy songs. I’ll share one new song this Sunday called Ruminate on Grace.

Experiencing Intimacy with God

As all of us have been experiencing tough times this last year, we do have the opportunity to connect with God more and sense His deep love for us and desire to be close to us. This is what gives me peace and joy knowing He loves me in the midst of unprecedented health risks, weather extremities, personal challenges, and national conflict. All these things are not outside of God’s purview and He will have His way. We can trust Him, cling to Him, and love Him with all our hearts. Be encouraged! He is working all things out for good (Romans 8:28).

I re-released for worldwide distribution the album Intimacy, which has 20 songs reflecting on relationships. Check this link for details: Intimacy on HearNow.com. I’ll be doing a home concert on February 21st emphasizing the importance of being intimate with God and caring for others. Join me on Facebook LIVE at https://www.facebook.com/reggie.coates.1.

New Christmas Album – https://reggiecoates.hearnow.com/i-wish-you-a-mary-christmas

 

The cover picture is actually taken from the Christmas tree in our living room that Sherri made to look so festive and beautiful. My son, Austin, designed the cover and back of the CD. I’ve been wanting to have a Christmas album for years that includes some of my songs and some familiar carols encouraging faith, hope, peace, and worship. I hope you enjoy the music and the message in these songs. The song Mary Christmas is fully written out in music notation and you can get it by clicking HERE.

 

I gave a Christmas concert on Sunday, December 13. It was very encouraging to hear how it touched your hearts, especially the exhortation to “Be still and know that I am God” from Mary Christmas. If you didn’t get a chance to see it, you can watch it on YouTube.com at:

Hope you are enjoying a relaxing vacation and fulfilling Christmas joy! On behalf of me, my family, and the Heartfelt Music® Ministry Board of Directors may you have a Merry Christmas and a meaningful close to 2020.

December Update 2020

I Wish You a Mary Christmas

Some years ago, I wrote a Christmas song, Mary Christmas, with a new slant. It refers to Martha in Luke 10 who was so busy with her preparations that she missed the most important thing, which her sister Mary understood: Worshiping Jesus is more valuable than serving Him. God’s priority is to be intimate with us in a loving relationship, so let’s slow down and worship Him through all our responsibilities, heartaches and delights.

Reflecting on 2020, there have been many positive things happening with Heartfelt Music Ministry. We just produced a new Christmas album, which will be released December 16 for worldwide distribution, I Wish You a Mary Christmas. This is a collection of familiar carols and two of my Christmas songs mostly performed simply with acoustic guitar, acoustic bass, and voice. We also repackaged for worldwide distribution the album Intimacy, which has 20 songs reflecting on relationships, to be released December 16. We refreshed our website, started our own Hearfelt Music and Ministry, Inc. Facebook Page, and have produced nine free streaming concerts and worship experiences to encourage you during these difficult times. We thank God we’ve been able to accomplish so much!

A Time to Be Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving! I pray this weekend will be a personal refreshment as you reflect on how amazing God is. In the midst of such a difficult time this pandemic is producing, we can look to God’s consistent character, His unfailing understanding of our unique situation, and His powerful presence to transform any circumstance into something meaningful and miraculous.

.
Have you noticed that decorating for Christmas has started so early this year? We have our Christmas trees up already. We can also start early focusing our attention on Jesus who invaded this earth to bring us abundant life. As we celebrate family, friends, food, and holiday enjoyment, show hearts of gratitude. We have a lot to be thankful for! May God revitalize your spirit and give you peace as you look to Him in all you do.

Reasons to Give Thanks

“I will give thanks to You, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders. I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.” Psalm 9:1. And from my song Here to Worship, “You deserve our praise. In so many ways we honor You with deep felt devotion. You deserve our love. Can’t stop thinking of your wond’rous grace, Your loving compassion. Thank You, Lord! Praise You, Jesus!”

Merry Christmas!

I hope this Christmas and New Year celebration is filled with meaningful moments with family and friends as you let the incarnation of Christ bring joy and peace to your heart.  As the Christmas carol Joy to the World exhorts, “Let every heart prepare Him room!”  Though sometimes life gets tough and we wish things could be different, let’s turn to the One who is in control of all things and worship Him. This Christmas season, may you lift up Christ and thank Him for the abundant life He brings (John 10:10).

 

Christmas Eve at Gilroy Pres.

Accenting the birth of Jesus, there will be a special Christmas Eve service on December 24th, at Gilroy Presbyterian Church. I will be leading the music for all of them. There will be our choir, a high school brass group, our praise band, with lots of Christmas carols and a beautiful candle lighting experience. Jesus deserves all the glory, honor and praise!  You are welcome to join us.
