Isaiah 49… No strength spent is in vain when it is out of obedience to God. I know sometimes I can wonder if all of my hard work is worth it. But Isaiah is prophetically speaking of how Jesus felt here. Of course we know in Isaiah 53:11 He felt that dying for us was worth all of His labor. He totally conquered death Himself and for us. He was obedient when it was hardest. While we may be discouraged at times, let’s be reminded by Jesus’ example of obedience and by the result of His obedience. Our reward is with God and following Him is always worth it! ❤️
Tears… Jordan Smith powerfully singing “Great is Thy Faithfulness” on the Voice and getting thanked by the coaches for bringing hope in light of the recent world tragedies. Downloading on iTunes. Beautiful. So proud of him. God is so faithful. #thevoice #jordansmith.
Working on a Christmas caroling project! :) More soon…
Well, I worked almost 2 months on the “Destiny Awaiting- A Song for Humanity” music video slideshow that I made. I tried to buy all licenses that I could, and tried to cover all of my bases, using a lawyer to do so. Long story short- there was a mix-up and one of the 93 year old photographers’ overseers doesn’t want his photos used for pro-life purposes (even though the pictures are all over pro-life pamphlets, websites nationwide, etc.) That’s ok. I tried to honor the artist’s work the way that I would want my music and photos honored, and I sought out permission. But I do think it’s sad, that the pictures can’t be used to help the unborn that are being dishonored and devalued. Good news, is that I can share this video with you: This is me sharing my song, “Destiny Awaiting” at Bethel church, just an hour after I finished writing it. Pray I can find some other unborn photos so I can get the other video back up, too. Thanks! :) God is sooooo good. He loves EVERYONE, even the little ones that He so intricately fashions into human beings.
I led worship for an #ivantait conference with Harbor Church earlier this week. It was held at Horizon Park Chapel in San Diego and I found this wall hanging to be very cool. Keeping the focus right on…#jesusislove
Once again- singing at the Alzheimer’s home was so great. “The music fills me with so much life!! It puts joy inside of me!!” The presence of God is so sweet and even though they may forget what they just sang and why there are maracas in their hands, the peace and joy of God will linger and continue to carry them through. This is one of the best jobs I’ve ever had, though it makes me miss my grandma.❤️
