As a drummer I have been looking for my own creative outlet for music. I have really been enjoying sample based music lately. Programs like Garage band, Acid or just creating your own sample based music with a DAW program. It's given me a better "focus" on the music and not just the drums. I feel it's helped me to be a better listener to what is going on in the music.
There is not much out there in Christian circles for the electronic/ambient genre of sample based music. I would like to… Continue

Two pilots in a microlight were literally flying on a wing and a prayer when their fuel ran out - and it seemed that divine intervention took a hand in bringing them down safely.

I know that the cuurent state of the world is nothing to be happy about but come on Christians, Jesus said this would happen..

I wonder if We will see the Lords return in our own days...

There is a church on my way to work that has a sign in front that they put different little sayings on. Right now it says, "Beware the bareness of a busy life." So true, but I think I would take a step further. "Beware the barrenness of a busy life." We live in a hectic world. If we aren't doing 3 things at once we must be lazy. But we need to set aside time (and I am preaching to myself as much as anyone else) to spend time alone with God. No distractions of any kind. No TV, no video games, no… Continue

Perhaps it never made it onto your radar screen before... this unusual sacrifice-requirement God demanded of his followers for the atonement of sin: a perfect, first-born male. Why did the sacrifice have to be perfect (without blemish or defect)? What was the significance of the first-born male? Why not the second or third? Why not a female?
The request would make little sense to anyone outside of the faith. After all, a sacrifice is a sacrifice, isn't it? Does one sacrifice mean… Continue

A friend from my weekly Bible study sent me a very encouraging e-mail this week. It reminded me that although I may not always receive acknowledgement for my efforts to encourage others in their walk of faith, God is watching. He sees and knows I am trying my best. So, on occasion, he sends me a postcard from Heaven through another person, just to say "I AM with you."
This poem was a response to God's postcard from Heaven this week.

Worship is the investment of the invisible currency of faith, through daily deposits of devotion, compounded with long-term interest in pleasing God, which pays the highest future yield in dividends through Heaven’s eternal reward.

Driving into work a while back I was listening to a Steven Curtis Chapman song called - My Last Day on Earth. The chorus has the following lines:
If this should be my last day on this earth How then shall I live?
It really got me thinking and challenged me. If I honestly knew that today was going to be my last day on earth what would I do differently? How would I live? What would I say to people? What wouldn't I say to people?
I'm convinced that I would do… Continue

Sabbath is a time of rest which God created for man, & not, man being created for Sabbath (see Mark 2:27). During Sabbath, we are to rest from the hectics we've been through the past 6 days. We are to be refreshed in God's presence, rejoicing & thanking God for how He's brought us through the 6 days. That is the main purpose of Sabbath.
Some people says Sabbath is on Sunday, some say Saturday. What about those people working on Saturdays & Sundays? Those serving in… Continue

Leading worship is never an easy task. Thank God my church is small, so the pressure isn't that much. Yet, I faced pressure when I have to lead worship, especially when people don't understand why I introduce a new song.
Anyway, I'm not here to blame anybody but give glory to God. God affirmed that my choice is His choice when I was doing my Quiet Time. I was reading on John 1:1-14 & what struck me is God spoke as I was reading, especially at verse 12:
"But to as many… Continue

Cheryl Lim shares her joy as a part-time student taking the Certificate of Creative Arts at TCA College. She is learning to be stretched by the Lord, yet at the same time reaping much from the courses.
When my church sent me to attend the Worship Leading course at TCA College, I was overjoyed as I have long wanted to improve my skills as a worship leader. However, I had to struggle through the course which included reading the course materials and completing the assignments.… Continue

Yes I know that there is only one true God so when I say "the best God" you might be thinking "but He is the ONLY God"! But isn't it amazing that we worship the best God in every way?! Sometimes I just stop and praise Him because He honestly couldn't be better in any way. Every characteristic of God is perfect - He is perfect in love, grace, mercy, deliverance etc. He couldn't be improved in any way.
I just think that's awesome! We all have so many things that we can work on in our… Continue

Worship The Rock is already a small community and is growing quite fast. I attempt to welcome each new member by leaving a short message on their message wall. Not only is this a good way for me to 'meet' new members and read their profile details but it also welcomes them to the community and hopefully makes them feel at home.
It would be fantastic if some of you could also welcome the newbies - it also gives you an opportunity to read their profile and you may even find out that… Continue

Well first of all welcome to 'Worship The Rock .com' and to the first blog on here...
You might be wondering why this network for worship leaders and musicians across the world is called Worship The Rock. Well there's many scripture references to God being our rock. One of my favourites is:
The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God, the Rock, my Savior! (2 Samuel 22:47)
Isn't it great that God is a rock - He is unchanging, the same yesterday today and… Continue
