Nick of Time - Jin  Jeremy Lin inspired

    (Mcjin) Mp3 DL: http://www.mediafire.com/?6h1o1...

    Here's how this song came to be..

    I saw this interview http://www.patheos.com/Resources/Additional-Resources/Faith-and-Fate-of-Jeremy-Lin.html about a year ago. Maybe it's the Asian American connection combined with the fact that at the time I was taking steps on my own spiritual path as well, but I was just super inspired.

    Later on, as Jeremy landed a spot on the Warriors, I had the notion to work on a song inspired by him. Interesting how God works.. The Warriors track never got released cause I couldn't get it to a point where I was comfortable with the overall direction of the song.. and next thing you know J gets released from the team.

    As he continues on his path to Houston and then ultimately the Knicks, I think it's safe to say that countless amount of us are continuously inspired and uplifted by what God is doing in this brothers life..

    His story and I'm sure many of ours can attest that like the song says, "HE always come thru in the nick of time."

    Produced by Supaman

    Lyrics:

    The biggest thing is to understand that your talent, your ability to play basketball is a gift from God.
    I think the biggest thing is to understand that you have to use that for God's glory.

    Yeah I been on my grind
    reachin' for the top and You've been on my mind
    they stready tryin' to stop my shine
    but it's always been Yours its never been mine
    You always come thru just in the nick of time
    You come thru in the nick of time
    You come thru in the nick of time
    so I give it up to You everytime I shine

    See this if life to me to you it's entertainment
    its quite intricate and only I can explain it
    to say I've come a long way would be an understatement
    the moment of truth every single one is savored
    chasing greatness not the pressure that it came with
    far from picture perfect observe as I paint it
    dealing with the games highs and lows
    you win some you lose some yeah I suppose
    but when the sweet smell of victory is by my nose
    I see whats goin' on even when my eyes are closed
    guarantee you're not stoppin' me or blockin' me
    all I need is one shot promised you'll be shocked to see
    the outcome I don't just play to win
    everytime I lace up yeah I play for Him
    doin' my all to make sure that Your glory is known
    while they fighting for the title see the King on His throne

    Yeah I been on my grind
    reachin' for the top and You've been on my mind
    they stready tryin' to stop my shine
    but it's always been Yours its never been mine
    You always come thru just in the nick of time
    You come thru in the nick of time
    You come thru in the nick of time
    so I give it up to You everytime I shine

    Yes I'm really here to serve You not just pretend to
    with each setback I intend to
    learn from experience and get better with time
    no matter what I achieve none of the credit is mine
    in the grand scheme of things You're the head of design
    and in any circumstance You said I'll be fine
    the ultimate play maker I follow Your lead
    never find need to feed into these naysayers
    who repeatedly told me that I would never make
    You're probably testing me to see if I could take it
    the bond between us they could never break it
    all that You have given me I shall not forsake it
    Your grace patience and all of Your love
    which one don't I deserve it's all the above
    where amazing happens I love this game
    only one reason I'm playing and God is His name

    Yeah I been on my grind
    reachin' for the top and You've been on my mind
    they stready tryin' to stop my shine
    but it's always been Yours its never been mine
    You always come thru just in the nick of time
    You come thru in the nick of time
    You come thru in the nick of time
    so I give it up to You everytime I shine

    I think also something that I needed to learn was just because you pray and just because you give it up to God doesn't mean that you're gonna win, and doesn't mean that you're necessarily gonna have a great performance and all that, but I think there's something special about playing the right way and having the right attitude even if you don't necessarily win or have a successful career.
