God Sighting

It’s VBS week! My favorite week of the year! Sara and her amazing team have spent nearly a year praying, planning, preparing, and praying some more – all to reach the children of our community in a real and impactful way. Each year the kids learn about “God Sightings” (those little moments in life where you can see His light shine through), and worship this morning was mine.  I have the pleasure of being a “fly on the wall” in How COVID has affected us

Shout for Joy

Shout for Joy: LOUD WORSHIP & OPEN HEARTS (PSALM 100:1) Have you ever felt a surge of joy so powerful it demanded expression? Maybe a victory, a breakthrough, or simply the overwhelming love of God. The Bible is full of examples of this kind of uninhibited praise, a worship that isn’t afraid to get loud! In Psalm 100:1, we are called to “Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth!” This isn’t a quiet, reserved kind of joy. It’s a How COVID has affected us

Let’s talk about forgiveness. It’s a powerful concept, but sometimes it feels impossible, right? We hold onto grudges, hurt, and anger, or we ourselves feel unable to be forgiven. We become shackled to emotions as a form of self-conviction.  The Bible tells a different story. In John 19:30, Jesus says, “It is finished.”  Those three words hold immense power. Jesus, on the cross, took on the burden of all sin and suffering. That includes the pain caused by others, as How COVID has affected us

Reflecting on the Goodness of God

“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” – Psalm 34:8  In the rhythm of life, we encounter moments of joy and moments of sorrow, peaks of triumph and valleys of despair. But, in the ebb and flow, one constant remains unwavering—the goodness of God. His goodness isn’t merely a concept to comprehend but a reality to experience. The song “Goodness of God” resonates with my heart as it echoes the How COVID has affected us

Death was Arrested

This year I am challenging myself to get to know the songs we sing on a little deeper level. I love the way music can help us approach the throne of God, each of us in a different way.   As I was listening through some of Sunday’s set list I came across a YouTube video that talked about the writing of Death was Arrested. The song is full of Biblical truths, so relating to the content has not been a How COVID has affected us

Life is a Highway

“Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure. Do not swerve to the right or to the left; turn your foot away from evil.”  Proverbs 4:25-27 Poor driving habits are a serious pet-peeve of mine – and they seem to come out in force during the holidays. Specifically, the habits that put others in danger. Like what, you ask? High-speed lane changes in heavy traffic, How COVID has affected us

The Power of Love (Not Huey Lewis)

As Christians, we are commanded to love. It’s not always easy to love others through the hurt and challenges. God’s love serves as the ultimate example, the purest expression of selflessness. It is a love that knows no bounds, embracing us in our flaws and imperfections. Love is not passive; it is an active choice. In choosing to love, we align ourselves with a force that has the power to heal wounds, bridge divides, and bring light into the darkest How COVID has affected us

Emotionally Connecting with God in Worship

Music has a remarkable way of stirring our emotions and transcending language barriers. In the realm of worship, music becomes a powerful medium to connect with God on a deep and emotional level. In this article, we will explore the biblical perspective on emotionally connecting with God through musical worship. We are called to be active participants in worship by offering our hearts fully to Him.
