Thankful for every day he can think good things about people.  He believes the main thing to do is to show that you love your neighbor.
We need to be aware that we have the capacity to have all emotions and to be aware when we are not expressing love and to stop and decide to change and express love instead of what is wrong.  He paints a beautiful picture when he speaks of how he believes in encouraging others because when you help someone by encouraging them in their creative process then in a way you become a part of what they have made.  We are all alike, we are no different from each other and we come together in our common language of music.  Anders is grateful for many things in his life and expresses himself in our conversation and in his featured piece he titled, “Promise of A New Dawn.”

Lead Scripture:
Genesis 1:31
31 And God saw everything that He had made and behold it was very good..”
God made everything good. He enjoys creating and enjoys what He has made.  He made this beautiful earth for us and He made us so that we are creative and enjoy our work too!


"I got the feeling of hope...hope of a promise of a new future, a new dawn... 
This feeling was my inspiration.
I think a lot of my instrumental pieces are about expressing feelings reflecting on life, death, relations, nature and the mysteries and meaning of life. To be curious, willing to explore the unknown and to be able to make a difference for my fellow beings is important to me."

Scriptures from Interview
Psalm 33:1-3
“1Sing for joy in the Lord, O you righteous ones; Praise is becoming to the upright.
2 Give thanks to the Lord with the lyre; Sing praises to Him with a harp of ten strings.
3 Sing to Him a new song; Play skillfully with a shout of joy.”
God gave us the gift of music and he also loves it!

God made man in his own image:

Genesis 1:26
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
The “Us” is God The Father, God The Son and God the Holy Spirit.  God is One, but He is a triune being, just like He made us triune.  We have a body, a soul and a spirit.  God became a human to save our souls. The body is The Son, Jesus Christ.  The soul is the mind, will and emotions.  This is God The Father.  The Spirit is The Holy Spirit.

God making us in his own image included feelings:

1 John 4:16
16 We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.”  (NASB)
God is compassionate and has given us compassion.

Isaiah 48:9
9 For my name's sake will I defer mine anger, and for my praise will I refrain for thee, that I cut thee not off.” (KJV)
God has emotions of anger, as do we.

Exodus 20:5a
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them (idols), nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God…”  (KJV)
God has emotions of jealousy, as do we.

Psalm 78:37-39
“ 37 For their heart was not steadfast toward Him, Nor were they faithful in His covenant.
38 But He, being compassionate, forgave their iniquity and did not destroy them; And often He restrained His anger And did not arouse all His wrath. 39 Thus He remembered that they were but flesh, A wind that passes and does not return.”
God restrains his anger and forgives us.  He has compassion on us.

Relationship is important to God.  He made us to love and be with Him.

Genesis 2:18
“18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” (NASB)

Proverbs 18:22
“22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing.” (KJV)
God wants us to be together and not be lonely but to love and help one another.

Psalm 68:6
“6 God puts the lonely into families…” (KJV)
If we seek God He will put us into families so we will not be alone.

Psalm 127:3-4
“3 Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord and the fruit of the womb is His reward. 4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man that has his quiver full, so are the children of his youth.” (KJV)
Families are a gift from God and are an earthly picture of how He wants us to be close and be with Him.

Matthew 7:11b
“11 ..your Heavenly Father will give good things to them who ask Him.” (KJV)

Luke 11:13b
“13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?” (KJV)
God wants to be with us so much that He has given us His Holy Spirit who lives inside of us when we ask Jesus into our hearts to save us.

Romans 8:15
“15 For you have not received a spirit of slavery [a]leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!” (KJV)
Its all about relationship with God!  Our Father God wants to bring us to Himself!  He wants to spend time with us in prayer and for us to give Him time in our day.  When we receive Jesus as our Savior and the Holy Spirit comes inside of us then we receive the peace of God and we naturally call unto Him and we say, “Father!  Father!  Father, I love you!”  And we can feel God tell us, “I love you, my child.”  Families are a gift from God.

Hebrews 13:5b
“13 I will never leave you or forsake you.” (KJV)
Our God is with us always when we have the Holy Spirit in our heart.  We are never alone.
