God, In The Broken Place- When My Understanding Comes Unraveled

  "Let me feel you in this broken place. Let me feel Your breath upon my face. 'Cuz everything I've trusted in, has been such a waste, if I don't see you in this broken place." I recalled today, when I ministered this song in a conference, once, and as the words came out of my mouth, I could feel the ...

When Men Despise Your Worship

The anointing at Bethany. Many believe the woman who entered the room was Mary, the sister of Lazarus. The account in John 12 identifies her as such. The other Gospel accounts don't mention her name and it says they were at the home of Simon the leper. Details for a scholar most likely, but our ...

A Paradigm of Musical Purpose for People of Faith That Will Change the Way You Look at Your Calling

As a person of faith and a worshiper of Jesus, who creates music, my world has been rocked and turned upside down of late by the teachings of Ray Hughes. If you are searching to find your musical "voice", mission or purpose, or a songwriter searching for true north in that calling, these videos are for ...

The Words of His Mouth; My Treasure

[Note: For the sake of distinguishing the Father, God from the Son, Jesus, in this article, the Father, God pronoun will be capitalized and the Son, Jesus, pronoun will be lower case, but in no way meant to diminish His deity.] Like Paul, I count all things, rubbish, compared to knowing Jesus. I am stirred ...

What to Do When You’ve Lost Your Song…..

What do you do when you've lost your song? I'm not talking about losing your iPod or MP3 player. Nor is this a case of not having time to get your praise on before work in the morning. I am talking about losing the song of your heart. You can't hear the music anymore. You don't feel the hope of your future. ...

Keeping the Main Thing, the Main Thing

The day was marked in time. The moment planned from the foundation of the world. "Behold, the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world!" John's words rang from eternity and into the hearing of all those surrounding his revelation of Jesus Christ at the Jordan. [John 1: 29-32] Soon after, John's ministry ...

The Power of Music!

It's been said, music is the universal language. I don't know who coined the phrase, but it appears to carry a lot of truth! Artists can travel around the world singing to those who don't speak their language and still be just as powerful as they are in their native land. Why? Because song has power! Why does it ...

VOICES

"My God's not dead, He's surely alive. He's living on the inside roaring like a lion." This was a song written by Daniel Bashta made popular by David Crowder Band and Newsboys. A song of revival and spiritual revolution. When I think about all the revolutions in the earth and our country, they started with a ...

Misplaced Allegiance = Misplaced Worship

WORSHIP is not about our music, it's about our allegiance! (loyalty or commitment of a subordinate to a superior or of an individual to a group or cause. Loyalty , faithfulness, fidelity ,obedience, homage, devotion.) Our adversary is not after our song, he wants our allegiance! He wants our obedience. He wants our worship. He wants us to profane God's ...

PRAISE…..what does it mean for our lives?

I was half asleep this morning, upon waking, which is when most of my great ideas come, when I starting pondering the idea of PRAISE! Yes, in the sense of praising God, but simply about what it means. What does it mean to our ordinary, everyday life? Not in a worship service or gathering but ...

You Are in Good Company!

Psalm 13  (NKJV) To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. 1 How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? 2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, Having sorrow in my heart daily? How long will my enemy be exalted over me? 3 Consider and ...

The Posture of Worship

Today, I was looking for pictures in a "Google" search of the word WORSHIP. This is what I was inundated with: We see the lights, the stages and yes, the hands lifted. And, although I understand the concept and agree it is about the children of God coming together to worship God, if this is the image ...
