Happy Palm Sunday! I have here a video to bless your spirit today to make us reflect about this season of Easter/Passover. God is Good and we should be forever grateful that it is because of Easter that we are all made to be a new Creation as Joint Heirs with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Be Blessed everybody and enjoy this video!
Happy Sunday! I just found this cool video to inspire and encourage your spirit. It’s Time for the Church of Jesus Christ to rise is it’s main message. It’s a spoken word type of poetry and it just is amazing. I’m sure you’ll be blessed by it as it also blessed me.
God Bless You everybody and enjoy!
Merry Christmas Eve Everybody!
I realize that although this is a time of family and fellowship for many of us celebrating the season of Jesus Christ’s birth and life, there are people out there that are going through some hard times in this season of celebration. So this song that I’m posting by Israel & New Breed (feat. James Fortune and Jason Nelson) called It’s Not Over is to encourage the lonely, the hurting and the ones who need a song to uplift their spirit. God is with you even when you think He isn’t in your present situation. God is in your situation. God we help you come through whatever trial you are going through because God loves you. He will send you the answers you are looking for even when you think you can’t find them. Many are going through “WHY????” seasons…but God can turn around that “Why?” into a “Because” and be the answer you need while you are asking questions. Though we see dimly the light shines through the darkness and that Light that you seek whether you realize it or not is through our Lord and Savior, JESUS CHRIST. God Bless you everybody and may this song minister to the broken-hearted during this season. God has not forgotten you.
Just felt like blessing y’all with a worship song by James Fortune & FIYA (feat Nikki Ross) called Make a Sound. When we worship unto our God it is a sacrifice of worship. Let’s bless God with our sound of Praise and Worship today, AMEN!
God bless you everybody!
If you remember last year, I did a video count-down to Christmas. Well, I’m going to do the same thing this year as well. Enjoy this video everybody and remember that we serve an Almighty God because Jesus is the Reason for the Season. God bless you everybody!
Happy Sunday Everybody!
I have an awesome song for you today by Shana Wilson called Give Me You. When I heard this song I just fell in love with it. The Lyrics are so simple and yet so profound. I’ll post them below for those interested in the song. I pray that this song ministers to your heart, your spirit and your mind today. God bless you Everybody!
Give me You.
Everything else can wait.
Give me You.
I hope I’m not too late.
Lord, give me You.
Lord, give me You.
Lord, give me You.
Lord, give me You.
It’s me oh, Lord.
I’m on my knees.
Crying out to You.
It’s me oh, Lord.
I’m on my knees.
So, give me You.
Give me You..
I just couldn’t help myself and wanted to add one more song for this Worship Sunday by William McDowell called I Won’t Go Back. I know this song is gonna bless you. God is awesome. Let this song fill your Spirit. God Bless you Everybody!
Boy…I’ve never felt so challenged than the last couple of weeks battling pneumonia… but God is faithful to heal me. I know that Zig Ziglar (November 6, 1926 – November 28, 2012), one of the greatest Christian motivators of our time passed away from Pneumonia this past Wednesday and it makes me appreciate life in a whole new way.It’s amazing how we take life for granted sometimes. A simple cold can take your life away.
Today, I just want to give the Lord praise for all that He keeps doing for my life. I worshiped God today in the morning service at my church, but it was really hard…I was struggling to breathe and I wanted to cry so bad because of the pain I was feeling in my lungs, but no one knows how much worship is warfare on its own. Despite all this, I still gave it my all because when you minister to people and when you minister to GOD…you have to learn to step outside of yourself. Some people during the service were getting healed and delivered. My lungs suffered, but God still receives the Glory. I realize that being a worshiper isn’t just standing there and singing a song….it’s literally a fight of faith even when the odds are against you. People in the pew don’t know your struggles if you are a praise team member in your own church because all they want is to be ministered too; However, as a minister on the Praise team…I’ve come to appreciate my role and have come to love God More and more because worship is warfare…When you love God, you set aside your pride and realize that even as a minister, you are not superhuman just because you can sing, you recognize your fragility and remain humble as you recognize that you still need Jesus to come through for you, even when you serve the King of Kings at such an honorable capacity. I needed Jesus to help me today to praise despite the pain I was feeling in my own lungs and witnessed the Holy Spirit move and minister to people in the congregation as I saw the angels at work with my own spiritual eyes…I can testify that God is completely awesome and I will remain in awe of Him forever.
He gives me strength to do things even when it’s hard when I decide to remain faithful with what I have to do. God doesn’t care about flowery worship….He seeks those to Worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.
But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
It’s when you as a worshiper come in communion with the One who is the source of all Truth that makes your worship a powerful weapon that can defeat the evil works planned against your life. Many people prefer worshiping God when all is well….but what happens to the individual when life is taking a turn for the worse?….do you let go of your most powerful weapon which is worship out of your hand and allow yourself to be defeated? No…you should worship even more…even in the worst times of your life because if you let go of that weapon of warfare….your worship will die…and your spirit will die….you yourself,will become your own self-fulfilling prophecy. Never let Go of God. Worship Him…and He will come through for you even in the difficult times. Even if you loose your voice …. pick up a CD and listen to praise and worship and have it in your heart. Worship….is warfare… keep that weapon on you at all times. It’s the one thing that I have in my car that has literally helped me evade car accidents. Worship is a divine gift….don’t allow anyone to steal your worship. When you do that…. you become a slave to self-pity. Don’t get ensnared with that prideful activity.
Worship the Lord your GOD in Spirit and in Truth, and Jesus will make a WAY out of no way for you if you just believe.
I have here two songs by William McDowell called Place of Worship and All I Want is You. May these songs bless your spirit today. God Bless you everybody!
I don’t know about you…but I’m in the mood for worship worship worship worship! Today, I enjoyed praise and worship at my church. There comes a point when the Spirit of the Lord comes upon your heart and you wanna dance like David Danced. I feel soo danced out…but my Spirit is still ablaze. So I want to share an awesome video to keep the spirit of Praise and Worship alive alive! This is from the Asian group Worship Dance who dance to the song How Great is Our God! Some of you will recognize them from the other song I posted a while back when the danced to Toby Mac and Kirk Franklin’s Be Still and Know I am God. Enjoy this Video everybody and remember God is GREAT!!!!!!! God bless you everybody!
Well, for those of us in Canada, we will be celebrating our Thanksgiving this weekend! Give the Lord Praise!
So I thought I’d put a fun video to help you understand what it’s all about historically.
I couldn’t leave this post without a praise song so here is What a Mighty God we Serve by Hezekiah Walker & The Love Fellowship Choir. I just love this song and I pray that it blesses you today.
For all that God has given us we must remember to Thank God for all our blessings. So Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless You all Everybody!
Well, I hope you are all having a blessed week . I wanted to give you all a wonderful vid to look at today concerning how we view worship. Worship is important to me and I can’t help but notice that I seem to be having an ongoing theme regarding it. Like I said before, Worship is not a Sunday affair. It should be a daily practice that can be demonstrated in how you give of yourself and your time to the Lord. I hope people don’t have a designated 5 minute time slot for the Lord when He is always with you every single moment of every single day. Unfortunately, many Christians are giving the Lord the silent treatment acting like He’s not there so today, I would like for us to think about what you have done to show God how much you love Him. I sing about Him, I write, I give my time and money to the things of the Lord, I read, I talk about Him…God is always on my mind everyday. I pray that we also have Him in our hearts each day. Worship God with all of your mind, body and your soul everybody. God deserves our Worship .
May this video bless your spirit today! God bless you everybody!
I hope you are having a fully blessed Sunday today. There’s this song that’s in my spirit right now that I want to share right here.
It’s by Worship Chapel recorded live at Jentezen Franklin’s church with the song called Echo! I think we all could do with a little bit of praise and worship for this Holy Ghosted day! May it bless you today and in all that you do, remember to give the Lord the highest praise! God bless you everybody!
I just love this song by CeCe Winans called Holy Spirit Come Fill this Place. I enjoy conversing with the Holy Spirit. He is indeed a wonderful counselor and a great Helper in my walk. If you want to know the Heart of the Father you must allow yourself to yield to the power of the Holy Spirit. He who has an ear, Hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to YOU the churches. This song ministers to my spirit and I pray that it ministers to you today. God bless you Everybody!
Yesterday I was in a conversation with some choir members regarding music. The Topic was a discussion concerning Secular versus Christian music. Music is a language that translates emotions, feelings and it also reveals that which we worship. Music can glorify Self, Problems or God but that is dependent on the lyrics to a song. As a worshiper, I thought to myself that we are losing a generation to hype and sounds because they do not listen to the words being spoken in the lyrics of these songs.
I found a clip from P4CM about two teens that decided to stop listening to Secular music and their thoughts. Check it out.
I personally have stopped meditating on and listening to music that does not fill my spirit. I’m not saying people should do what I do, but that’s where I am in my walk with God. Can I say that I am avoiding it all completely???…Well no because when you go to a clothes store you’ll hear music playing in the background and sometimes it’s unwholesome but as long as I don’t meditate on such music, it has no power to contaminate my spirit.
The way I see it, not all secular music is bad but the songs that promote immorality in their lyrics are what we have to watch out for and listen for as well. We cannot afford to be passive hearers of music and not listen to what is being sung in the lyrics at all.
Music is a language that becomes a form of worship by the way we respond to it. Is it truly a wonder how we can get a packed stadium when Usher Raymond, Beyonce, Rhianna or Katy perry come to sing? What they sing with the beat of the music stimulates our senses to gravitate to their songs and when people become fans, they have translated their love of music as a form of worship to the person singing the song. What people choose to idolize is who they end up worshiping. If God doesn’t receive the same level of worship as a famous singer, then there is definitely something wrong with how we are translating how we worship God through music. Music is a powerful force but it is the language we need to fine tune so that we give God all the Glory, all the honor and all the praise.
Music speaks to our heart and therefore is written from the heart. The reason we always concern ourselves with “The heart of worship” is because that’s where all worship comes from; our hearts. Also consider that when you worship God, you also capture His Heart. When a heart is moved, everything becomes possible. Healing and deliverance becomes easy because the heart is moved to believe. So today think about what it is that you worship from the very depths of your heart and consider that to some extent we have failed to give our 100% to the Lord. Think about what it is that is hindering you from giving your 100% level of worship and consider that worship is such a strong language that it can mobilize people into one mind, one voice and one worship to one Superior God, Our Lord Jesus Christ. Think about these things daily with much consideration and have a blessed day everybody!
I have here a song by Terry MacAlmon called Captivate My Heart.
Scriptures to Meditate
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD!
24 But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all. 25 And thus[a] the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you.
Order in Church Meetings
26 How is it then, brethren? Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification.
[ Prayer and Thanksgiving for the LORD’s Righteous Judgments ] To the Chief Musician. To the tune of “Death of the Son.” A Psalm of David. I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works.
[ Praise to God for His Faithfulness and Justice ] Praise the LORD! I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, In the assembly of the upright and in the congregation.
I just love worship and hosting the presence of God when I sing or put on music that fills the room. Whether it be in my car or in my bedroom, worship is where I want to be. Today, I have a song that I love and still love and I pray that it ministers to you today. God is Holy and worthy of all our praises. When I think of His Goodness it’s hard to tear myself away from His Holy Presence. If I had my way, I’d surround myself in a room full of worship songs that would run throughout the day and night and would never stop. That’s how much worshipping Him means to me. Heaven is always in an atmosphere of worship with the angels and heavenly hosts that bow down to worship His Majesty, His Excellency, His Honorable Highness. I’d like to be there right now and just bask in the presence of God as I cry Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God Almighty! God is soooooooooo AWESOME! He is all we need, Amen! I’m in so much awe of His divine Goodness that it’s overwhelming me that no words can even capture how I feel towards the Lord. I Love Jesus!
This song is by Lakewood Church called In Your Presence. May it bless you today Everybody! God Bless you Everyone!
I just want to say that I went to a conference and thought the whole journey was phenomenal. As you already know, I love worship like you cannot believe. It is one of those things that if I lived in a perfect world, I’d rather bask in a room full of it for the rest of my life and survive on that. It was just awesome. The Power Up Conference is hosted by the Toronto Mass Choir. I have a few Pics and Vids I wanna share. It was sooo awesome and they are planning a missions trip to Romania for this Summer. More about them can be located at this link here
. It was an awesome atmosphere of Praise and Worship and I am just soo blessed to be a part of something like that. It was an amazing workshop that had over 200 participants attend. One lady actually flew all the way from Japan just for this workshop hosted in Toronto and she’d only been in Canada for less than 5 months wanting to be a part of this 3 day workshop. God is GOOD! It’s amazing how people from the outside are drawn to places and opportunities to praise and worship God and do what it takes to get what they are looking for. They know the value of it that for us it’s like what Karen Burke (the co-founder and director of TMC) said, “it’s cotton candy to us because it is so readily available”. If we only had the same hunger for worship like others did, we wouldn’t take things like that for granted.
I have lived in a country where worshiping God was out of the question and mass persecution would result if found worshiping God openly and blatantly. People of the West, YOU DON’T KNOW HOW GOOD YOU HAVE IT HERE! Sorry but I had to make that shout out come out loud and clear. You are free to worship God here but yet we try to remove Him in our schools, our politics and other different areas of our lives whereas people outside who aren’t as free to have such choices as we do, want to worship the Lord as freely as we can and yet we shun the Lord Jesus and still wonder why the economy is going through some serious rough patches. Praise is a divine weapon, Worship is a divine weapon, it should be our garments that we wear everyday, but some of us put our Sunday’s best on Sunday and shelf it after Church is done. God isn’t impressed with the lukewarm, convenient Christianity friends. We cannot afford to be like that. God wants us to involve Him in our lives but we can’t see the implications of removing Him from it until HELL literally breaks loose on us. Do you really want to kick God out of your life only to OPEN the DOORS for Satan and his party to wreak havoc in your Life? In the end, the choices that we make are up to us and no one else. We are all accountable for our own actions. Think about that and consider that Jesus isn’t a Sunday clothing outfit, He is your daily Garment of Praise! We should wear Him with no Fear and Shame, AMEN!
Here are some of the Pics I took last night. It was phenomenal People!
We Learned 4 Songs in a course of 6 hours split up between two days. Friday being the first day for 2 hours and then Saturday we had two sessions, one in the morning for 2 hours and then later on in the afternoon for another 2 hours. We learned by ear without music and lyrics in front of us and presented this music last night for the congregation of Kennedy Road Tabernacle. Now I wanted to give you a video of the TMC in action and I did upload to YouTube but the picture is not coming out right so I might post it on my facebook blog page instead, so look out for that.
The Songs we learned were:
Great and Mighty – Joe Pace
He Knows – Edwin (Walter) Hawkins
Praise is what I Do – Shekinah Glory
Winner – V.I.P. Mass Choir (John P. Kee)
Since the videos I have don’t seem to work quite right on YouTube, I decided to give you a vid of Great and Mighty by Joe Pace. It was such an awesome song to learn and very uplifting. May it Bless You Today!
