Who is ray boltz dating
This was my first Christian album I bought years ago, and may still be the best one I ever bought.
As a new Christian years ago, I had a hard time giving up secular music, but my heart was for God.
I also began to play the piano again for hours at a time, alone with God.
During this time of sadness and uncertainty, the Holy Spirit gave me a song which I entitled "The Anchor Holds".
He’d been struggling for years with his feelings, to the point of clinical depression and thoughts of suicide.
Boltz tells the Washington Blade, “I’d denied it ever since I was a kid.
In the spring of 1993, my old friend Ray Boltz heard about the song during a time of sharing together after one of his concerts in Maine.
The songs on this album are really felt by the heart, and you can feel The Lord in every song.It’s actually a really well-done story and definitely worth reading. For more than 20 years, Boltz has been a staple of the CCM industry, earning several certified gold albums, three Dove Awards and a string of 12 No. He’s probably best known for the songs, “Thank You,” “Watch the Lamb,” “The Anchor Holds” and “I Pledge Allegiance to the Lamb.” He was married for 33 years, raised four kids, and was by all accounts a typical Christian music artist.But in 2004, he dropped a bombshell on his family when he admitted that he was gay.I became a Christian, I thought that was the way to deal with this and I prayed hard and tried for 30-some years and then at the end, I was just going, ‘I’m still gay.I know I am.’ And I just got to the place where I couldn’t take it anymore …
All those things I had heard specifically in church. And so, as I was learning these things intellectually, I was going through the emotional trauma that if I accepted this, that if I understood this the way other people were expressing it, then, there was no hope, that Ray was telling me the truth, that it’s not what you do, it’s who you are, and that he was gay, and he was not going to change.
