Intimate Worship #2

 

Sing to the Lord, all the earth!
    Tell of his salvation from day to day.
 Declare his glory among the nations,
    his marvelous works among all the peoples!
 For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
    and he is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
    but the Lord made the heavens.
 Splendor and majesty are before him;
    strength and joy are in his place.

Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength!
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
    bring an offering and come before him!
Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness;
   tremble before him, all the earth;
    yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.
 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice,
    and let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”

1 Chronicles 16:23-31

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I hope you are encouraged as you spend time with God. These are worship songs that have been a blessing to me.  I have more coming your way. If there’s one thing I love doing is worshipping God. There are so many things that vie for our attention but we must learn to fix our eyes on Jesus. We must stay connected to God each and every day. It’s not always easy because we have so many things going on in our lives but with the help of the Holy Spirit we can spend time with God. Take time to spend time in his word this week amidst your busy schedule. Make room for God in the same way you make time for everything in life but much more. Remember, this walk is a journey. Stay Blessed & Encouraged 🙂

God Sufficient vs. Self-Sufficient

simply-divine-creation:
“ Abide In Him | By Mandy Mom
”

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
 in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight. 

Proverbs 3:5-6

What have you placed your confidence in? Is it your family, friends, money or even yourself? What has caused you to place your confidence in these things/people? How’s that been going?  In times of distress, it is so easy for us to put our confidence on things that are visible rather than fixing our gaze on God who is invisible but yet ever present. Most of the time, we put our confidence in our self because we feel that God is taking so long to answer our prayers. So instead of waiting, we do everything in our own power to get what we want only for us to search to and fro to return back to square one. We place our trust in our own resources rather than seeking/waiting on the Lord. It is one thing to seek but it’s another thing to wait. It’s like knocking someone’s door to ask them a question. You knocked but because they didn’t answer, you decided to open the door only to find out that they were doing something important. We want things very quickly in this fast paced generation. If we don’t get what we want in the time/manner we imagined, we will try to do everything to get it. Well, our way of doing things is not how God works. We are reminded in Isaiah 55:8-9 that God’s ways aren’t close to us.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.

No matter the plans we have set for ourselves, if it is not God’s will for our lives it will not work. We are reminded in Proverbs 19:21 that “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.” That’s why it’s important for us to commit all our ways unto the Lord. There is something about a person who seeks the Lord and includes God in their everyday activity/life. Even when things don’t go as intended, there’s this peace that God gives you. I don’t know what you have your placed your confidence in, but I pray that you will surrender everything to God. Whatever you are waiting for in this season, trust and believe that God is working it out for your good. It may not look like God is working in your life, but know that just as a farmer plants a seed without watching it at night doesn’t mean it isn’t flourishing. God is present even when we feel like he’s absent. Sometimes, it is at our darkest hours that we need to reach our hands out to God for him to direct us into the light. We must learn to seek God at all times not only when things aren’t going well. When we only come to God when things aren’t going well, we find it difficult to cultivate a genuine relationship with him because our relationship is solely built on what God can do for us not who he is. So with this in mind, take time to reflect on your relationship with God. As you do so, invite the Holy Spirit to reveal the parts/areas of your life that you haven’t surrendered to God? Take notes and pray over it.

Verse To Ponder On:

The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing. -Psalm 34:10

Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. -Psalm 34:5

Song of the day:

Until next time, stay blessed & encouraged. Jesus loves you 🙂

The Christian Tag

Hey everyone. I hope your doing well on this beautiful day. So today I’m coming to you all with something different. It’s called the Christian Tag. I don’t know if you’ve heard of it before but let’s get to it. Here are the questions. Below 🙂

  1. Who were you before Christ and who are you now? When did you become a Christian?

Before I came to Christ, I was quiet. I was still that social butterfly who love talking to people. I think many times, when people share their testimonies of how they gave their lives to Christ, people expect for them to tell a story of how bad they were and the things they used to do but honestly that’s not always the case for everyone. For some people, they give their lives to Christ because they have hit rock bottom and they want to give this whole “Jesus” thing a try. It’s beyond a Jesus thing. They just aren’t always aware of it at the moment. Giving your life to Christ is not a trial and error experiment. It’s a serious commitment. Jesus has already proposed to you on the Cross. He is waiting for you to accept him if you haven’t already done so.

Before I came to know Christ, I found it difficult to love my skin color because I was made fun of in middle school, high school and college. Before coming to America, I never saw anything wrong with my skin but over the years it became a struggle for me because in middle school, I was given bleaching cream to lighten my shade of color. P. S. My family is from Ghana. My skin color is another topic for another day. That’s another story in itself. I gave my life to Christ at the age of eighteen. I was invited to church by a Muslim girl who was tying to convert into Christianity. Before this I was going to church. I knew who Christ was but it wasn’t until I started having a personal relationship with Christ. It’s a journey but I’m learning and growing. It’s been a blessing. Through the difficult times, God has been my strength. We all go through obstacles in this life. Just because someone doesn’t share their story with you doesn’t mean they haven’t faced any trials. In all things, we must give thanks unto God and share of what he has done. So many testimonies, my mouth cannot even contain. So I tell it to people. Waking up in the morning is a testimony for me. Not everyone get the opportunity to see a new day. In spite of all that we go through, may we never forget God is. I am the daughter of a King. My identity is in Christ. I am complete in Christ alone. He has paid it all. He makes no mistake in what he molds. He is still working in and out of me daily.

2. What is my favorite Bible verse?

To be honest, I have so many Bible verses that I love but I would list three of them.

For though I am absent from you in body, I am present with you in spirit and delight to see how disciplined you are and how firm your faith in Christ is. So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. -Colossians 2:5-7

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.  Proverbs 3:5-6

The unfolding of your words gives light;
    it gives understanding to the simple. Psalm 119:130

3. What is your favorite Gospel Song?

I have too many. To be honest, I can’t just list one. So I’m going to list as many as possible but just a short version for you.

  • We Will Worship// This I Know (P. S. Favorite Worship Team)
  • Jaye Thomas: We Love Your Name; Pursuit Of You  (P.S. Favorite Gospel Artist)
  • Elevation Worship: Resurrecting
  • Joe Mettle: All I Want Is You
  • Sinach: The Name Of Jesus
  • Joyous Celebration: I Press
  • Sophia Shepherd: Hide Me Away Lord
  • We Will Worship// Like Oil
  • Covenant Worship: How Great
  • William Murphy: Everlasting God
  • Hillsong: Cornerstone; Christ Alone

I mean I can go on with worship songs because that’s what I listen to majority of the time. I believe that it’s important what we feed our spirits.

4. What is your favorite Christian Book?

  • Priscilla Shirer: The Resolution For Women
  • Fifi Yorke: Expectation For Manifestation

A few book I’m looking forward to read includes,

Francis Chan: Crazy Love

Steven Furtick: Seven Mile Miracle (I’m telling Elevation Church/Worship is beyond a blessing).

Levi Lusko: Through The Eyes Of A Lion (He preached at Hillsong about looking his 5 year old daughter. The church sanctuary was in tears. I was so moved. I purchased the book and surprised a friend of mine. His testimony was a blessing to both of us. I can’t wait to read it.

5. Have you read the entire Bible?

No, I haven’t read the entire Bible.

6. Do you have a devotional?

Yes I do. I love reading Bible plans from the Holy Bible App. There’s also a devotional that my church gives us called “The Word Of the Day”. Also I enjoy and absolutely love reading devotionals from Rick Warren.

7. The oddest place you’ve prayed?

Great question because I have a few. I would have to say the oddest place I’ve prayed was sitting outside with my friend at an open space in University with our eyes closed while people were passing by. Another odd place would have to be the first time I did evangelism with my friend and we prayed for a person in the hallway by the Bookstore at my school. Lastly, just two days ago, my friend and I was praying for a friend of mine in one of the busiest places in my school where students pass by so much. Sometimes, I get a bit nervous to be honest but I still carry on.

8. What’s a passage or verse that has helped you during your walk with God?

Like I mentioned before, there’s a lot of passages that have helped me and encouraged me but I would have to say Psalm 23 and Proverbs 3:5-6. I learned Psalm 23 at the age of six or seven and that entire verse resonates to me.

9. What does it mean to follow Christ?

I believe that following Christ is to forsake your old life and picking up your Cross daily. Living and representing Christ through the way you live. We are reminded in Romans 12:2 that we shouldn’t conform to the patterns of the world but rather we should be transformed by the renewing of our minds. Then we will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

10. What advice would you give someone who wants to give their life to Christ?

Come as you are. God is waiting for you to be perfect. He is patiently waiting for you. Taste and see that the Lord is good for yourself. Don’t make judgements by what people have expressed to you. Don’t be afraid. Get to know God for yourself. It’s not about religion. It’s about having a personal  relationship. Just come as you are. God is waiting for you.

So who do I tag? Honey, I tag everyone. Come on. Share what the Lord has done for you. Until next time, stay blessed and encouraged.
