My New Muse: By Love Came Down By Kari Jobe

This song is featured on my post today because it is beautiful both lyrically and melodically. The harmony of Kari’s voice and her male backing vocal just makes me want to listen to it over and over again. I also think that the way the song rises in volume helps their vocals come across even stronger and puts more emphasis on the meaningful lyrics.

I really think that you will like the song too so I’m very citified to share it with you! I hope that you enjoy it and leave a comment below letting me know what you thought about it and with any artists/songs that you would like me to listen to so that I can recommend it. I would really like to know what you enjoy listening to 🙂

Here is the song for you to listen to and the lyrics for you to read:

My New Muse: Message In The Music By Dedbra Killings

Hi Everyone!

I want to talk to you about my new favorite song. I heard it yesterday on my parents WOW GOSPEL DVD and really really liked it. I did a little more research about Debra and really liked her because she said that she wants to use the knowledge that she has learned in the music industry to help reach others. Her genres are Jazz and R&B which I think really reflects in her songs seeing as she is a talented bass player and singer. I think that her genres and talents help her get her message across to both Christians and non-Christians.

Here is the song for you to listen to and the video from the WOW GOSPEL video for you to watch:

Time To Hear

Hi everyone!

Yesterday I was s checking my emails and I came across this lovely one. I thought that I would share it with you because I believe that God should come first everyday and that we should look after our bodies. I hope that you enjoy it and that it helps you with your daily walk with god 🙂

Today’s Prayer
Dear Father in Heaven, praise be to your name in all the earth! Thank you for the years of good health you have given, and for walking me through the times when I have been ill or faced physical problems. I pray that I, and every Christian, will always be mindful of the fact that our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit. We want to keep ourselves clean, pure, and as healthy as possible, for we need to be good examples and have good testimonies before others. We need to honor you and your Spirit through our bodies, as well as our minds and actions. Please give us wisdom and knowledge of right things to eat, the right ways to exercise, and motivate us to do what we must to stay in shape and be healthy. So often we get busy and have so much to do, that we do not make time to take care of our physical bodies. Open the door, give us the desire, and show us the way. May we take care of what you have given us. In the name of the Savior I pray, amen.


Time to Hear
TGIF Today God Is First Volume 1, by Os Hillman

“He who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I too will love him and show Myself to him.” – John 14:21b

We live in a day of 12-step programs for this, four points to success for that, and all forms of programmed means of becoming successful. Have you ever wondered how you can guarantee a greater revelation of Jesus in your life? Jesus tells us how this can be done. It is all tied to obedience. In John, He tells us the following: “Whoever has My commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves Me. He who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I too will love him and show Myself to him” (Jn. 14:21). The key here is in the last three words. He will show Himself to us because of our loving Him through our obedience. The more obedient we become, the more revelation of His presence we will feel in our life. Jeremiah tells us, “Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jer. 33:3).

Many Christians wonder why they cannot hear or sense God’s presence in their life. It is because they do not seek Him with a whole heart, and they are not obedient to the things He has asked. God does not show us the next move until we are obedient to the first thing He has spoken to us. It is a progressive process. He entrusts the small things to us first, then moves us to the larger. I was like many today who are so focused on seeking the activity of God rather than seeking God Himself. Hebrews tells us that God rewards those who diligently seek Him. In the Old Testament we are told, “But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find Him if you look for Him with all your heart and with all your soul” (Deut. 4:29).

I realized if I was going to hear God’s voice, I had to make time to seek Him and hear Him. I had to spend focused time alone reading, studying, and seeking His face only. Jesus set the model for this when He often left the crowds to be alone and seek His heavenly Father. I also had to tune my “radio” to His frequency. Static comes into that frequency when I am disobedient. My level of seeking determines the power of my “radio” to reach Him. The more I seek Him, the more I hear Him. Seek the Lord today so that you may be empowered by His presence.

Giving Him The Key

I read this beautiful prayer and story from a n email that I forgot I subscribed to. I decided to stop and read it and loved it so much that I thought I should share it with you. I also want to share my views on it, so here goes:

Today’s Prayer
Dear God, I pray that my work will be a lasting monument to your faithfulness in my life. Whether it is taking care of children, comforting a grieving neighbor, visiting a sick friend, teaching a class, developing a special project, managing money, or whatever the task, God show me if it is bringing glory to You. If it is not, help me to recognize how and what I should be doing or not doing. If it is, then give me the strength to keep on doing what pleases You. Please give me the desire and faith to give the first fruits of my increase to you. May you be glorified, my God, the source of all blessing. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with Me. Revelation 3:20

A friend of mine tells the story of an encounter he had with a very important government official – the head of state for a country. In the course of some meetings with my friend, the official came up to him and said, “I perceive that there is a difference between you and me. Is it because I come from a different denomination?” My friend began to explain why there was a difference.

“If you were to come to my home, I would invite you in as an honored guest. As my guest, you would enjoy everything I had in my home. However, you would still be a guest. You would not have the keys to the home, and your authority in that home would be merely as a guest. However, if I said to you that I am turning over my home to you and you now have the keys to my home, I would be your servant.” My friend continued, “This is the difference between you and me. You have merely invited Jesus into your home as a guest. I have given Jesus the keys to my home [heart] and I am his servant.”

“How can I do this too?” the man replied.

“All you have to do is invite Him in as the new owner.”

The man did this and is now allowing Jesus to rule and reign in every detail of his life.

So often many of us enter a relationship with God that brings us salvation. This is the gospel of salvation. But what God really desires for us is to experience the gospel of the Kingdom. He wants us to experience His power and presence every day of our lives and to see His hand at work in us. This only happens when we give Him the key to our life; He must be more than an honored guest.

Where are you today? Has your life with God been more like an honored-guest relationship, or does He have the key to your life?

Wasn’t That Interesting?

I really loved this. The prayer was beautiful. After I read this it made me realize how I needed to let God take full control of every aspect of my life. I do ask Him to come into my heart and to have control of my life, but I never asked Him to control every single aspect of it and the decisions I make. Reading this has made me realize that I should honor God and it’s ok for me to do so, but I need Him to control everything. I do trust Him so I know that I/my life is in good hands 🙂

I hope that this gives you something to think about,
