Hi guys and girls. Here is a quick question. I have a lot of ideas and word from God to pen down. I have never really made time to write songs but lately I feelthe urge to do so. Any suggestions on where to start? I am who Iam because of Jesus.

Just start. Don't expect perfection. You are most likely going to write loads of trash before you come up with something presentable. That is all part of the process. :)

Yeah, what Junjie said.  Just write, don't worry if your first efforts aren't great...

Songwriting, even worship writing, is part inspiration and part craft.  "I am who I am because of Jesus" is inspiration; expressing that in a way that makes for good song lyrics is craft.  There is a songwriting group on here; post some lyrics, take your lumps, and try to understand that when people critique your lyrics, it's not because "they don't get it," it's because the lyric isn't doing its job.  Don't defend or try to explain your lyric, just (a) go back and try to improve it, and (b) write three more.
