God’s Gospel Cration recently released the music video for their first single, “God’s Still Passing Out A Blessing.” Doug Baynes, producer/songwriter/lead singer of this new release, believes that God gave him this particular song to lift spirits and spread optimism during these times of hardship and distress. Founded in 2016, Doug started singing with his brother, James “Maestro” Walker and Michael Rounds, Sr. Their style is a mixture of gospel quartet and contemporary music.
Doug Baynes has an optimistic outlook on life and he strongly believes that we can all make it through the hardest times in our lives, if we just place our trust in God, as He is always watching over us. “When I created this song, I wanted to remind people that God will help us if we ask Him to. He allows us to go through trials, but He expects us to trust that He will bring us through them as refined like gold in the end. We have to understand that the blessing is activated by our faith in the Blesser,” stated Doug.
The song features the story of a young man in need of help who seeks out God to guide him to the right path. The video starts out with a man in a state of hopelessness and frustration, unable to pay his mounting bills, and weighed down by the pressures of everyday life. Ending on a positive note, the young man returns to his church roots, and God meets him at his place of need, wherein he finds renewed hope and grace from God that restores his joy!
