Oh sinner come home,
≡► Jesus gave us a clear message with His life, He said: I love you my children, but I must go away. I will be back to receive you one day, until then I will give you comfort through my love for you. All you have to do is call upon My Name and then step into the light.
A dying man called out, Help Me.
A drowning man called out, Save Me.
A sinner called out, Jesus Forgive Me.
Jesus saves, all you have to do is Ask Him.

This week’s song is about the eternal sovereignty of God, and especially the fact that, as creator and sustainer of the universe, everything belongs to Him, not us.
There is nothing I can bring in offering Continue
That you haven’t given
Every heartbeat, every breath is yours alone…

A new arrangement of a text from the 4th century and tune from the 11th-15th.
Of the Father’s Love Begotten
Of the Father’s love begotten
Ere the worlds began to be
He is Alpha and Omega
He the source the ending He
Of the things that are that have been,
And that future years shall see
Evermore and evermore
O ye heights of Heav’n adore Him,
Angel hosts, His praises sing,
Pow’rs, dominions, bow before him
And extol… Continue

This song was inspired by the book Caution to the Wind by Joe Murchison, it’s about hearing God’s call and responding in faith and action.
Caution to the Wind
I’m throwing caution to the wind
To find a life worth living
I hear the voice of heaven calling out, “Whom shall I send?”
I’m praying for my will to fall
To find a joy above all
To take my cross and hear the Savior say, “Well done, my friend.”
To the hungry, make me a feast… Continue

This week’s song is a meditation on Christ’s arrest and crucifixion from the point of view of someone who was there, and who aided in putting him to death.
Father, Forgive Them
On a quiet night, in torches’ light
As the faithful fled, we bound and led
To a trial of lies, from jealous minds
To an unearned pain, a death of shame
In the grave he lay, poured in offering
Son of God became man of suffering
As we cried in hate, shouting to… Continue

This song is a simple statement of the reason we need Christ, structured around four basic points: truth, love, forgiveness, and transformation.
When you’re lost, there’s a truth outside of you
When you fall, there’s a love that waits for you
Calling, “Child, all your guilt has been removed.”
There is power in the change of a life renewed.
Something deeper than your passion or your mind
Knows a truth that all your reason cannot… Continue

One difficult adjustment for songwriters writing worship music is changing their approach to syllable consistency. When you’re writing solo performance music, there is a great freedom to add variety between verses. Say the first line of your first verse is “Jesus loves me, this I know,” and you add a second verse that begins with “Jesus died for me, this I know.” In a solo performance, you can mold the melody to accommodate the extra syllable (”died for” instead of “loves”).

Many of us Christians already knew the truth of our existence, that is in glorifying our creator. we understood well that each and everyday we should do our best to glorify our living God. That's for us, but sometimes we should also try to understand that not all people in this world are Christians, for some are only Christians by name, and for some other reasons, the unbelievers mostly follows their path.

Someplace there is a child being abused, there
is a young girl being rapped, there's a mother who is
trapped within an auto accident, there's a hungry
child with no food, there is someone's pet lying along
a road injured and you are reading this. ≡► Please
take the time to remember the hurting and pray for God
to ease the pain and supply their needs.

Jesus suffered for you, while He was hurting He… Continue

As the young man went to bed that evening, little did he know that it would be his last day here on earth, the last time he would remove his artificial leg and lay it nearby as he laid his body down to rest. On his desk was an old typewriter containing a special letter he had written to his older brother who had helped lead him to Jesus a few weeks earlier, in a room just below a spark would fall into an abandoned fireplace and ignite the fire which would take his life… Continue

This song is based on a hymn of the early Church found in Ephesians 5.
Born in Light
Wake up, sleeper, rise, you dead
Christ is shining, dawn is at hand it comes
Put off darkness, all you’ve known
Leave your burdens, come to the throne of the
Prince of Peace
We will rise, rise,
To stand as children
And shine, shine
In lives forgiven
We’ll praise, praise the name of Jesus

In most church settings there is a time for Worship. I like what Eddie James once said. We have not come for a show or to intertain you,but we have come to Worship Jesus.
Many times we are in a box or in a planned event that we want to follow the items on the list.
We need to break away from scheduled Worship and Praise but rather get into true Worship that is rarely seen in most congregation services.
What you have to do first is SLOW DOWN! we are many times too… Continue

You ever find yourself asking God to put me in coach.For the past couple of months it feels like that's what I've been doing. You see it gets a little lonely up on the shelf watch the game go oninfront of you. Lately how ever I've noticed God has not parked onshelf but He instead has me in His workshop and is rebuilding and retuning me for the next leg in life's race. One of the things God is doing is letting look into past lessons to see how I apply them
to present day problem and trials.… Continue

As a companion to the Word Like Fire podcast, I’m planning to use this blog to discuss various topics related to music in the Church, and hopefully spark some constructive discussions. I’ll also speak to specific issues that I’m keeping in mind as I write my own music.
Something worth talking about was brought up by Kevin (of the Sung Prayers Podcast) in an earlier comment- the prominent focus on the individual in modern worship music.
A while back, my wife and I were… Continue

Vital Signs-Diagnostic Clinic for Pastors
How would you like to take your church to the doctor for an annual check up to see how healthy it is? Each year when we get an annual physical, the doctor checks our vital signs and major systems to determine if we need some assistance in achieving maximum health. Do you know your church’s vital signs? How healthy is your church? Could one of your ministries be sick, or even worse, could it be infecting the whole church body? Do… Continue

Let go of the heartaches, the shame, and the guilt.
You’re a strong woman of God, so stand on the foundation that was built.
By Him! Yes, the One who is in control
of your life give it to Him; then you will be on the roll!
It is a brand new day, a new life, so rejoice!
You have the victory; you have made the right choice.
Let your hair blow in the wind,
so the gentle breeze can speak to you so softly in your ear in the end.
