Our God Is HUGE

GodsLoveForUsIn our Women’s Bible Study last night, we watch the DVD again of ‘How Great Is Our God‘. I’ve posted the video here and if you haven’t seen it, you will LOVE it!! Louie talks about how huge our Universe is and tries to compare everything in terms of the earth being a golf ball.

Then, when you realize how small we are, he ends by talking about how wonderfully and fearfully we are made. In Ephesians, Paul prays that we would have the power to understand God’s great love for us.

When you can start to get your head around how Magnificent He is, then you might just begin to comprehend how much He LOVES us to have sent His only Son to dies for our sins!

I always like to end my Newsletters with ‘Worship Him with all of you heart because He loves you with all of HIS! Carve out 40 minutes to see the video… Click Here.

Mary Did You Know Video

 

Christmas is around the corner and this is a wonderful arrangement of ‘Mary Did You Know.’ The lyrics are written below the video. The group singing is called Pentatonix.  PTX is comprised of 5 singers based out of Texas. They specialize in a cappella singing. This song has a very special message and PTX does a superb job of singing it. Hope you enjoy the video…

Mary Did You Know?

Mary did you know that your baby boy will some day walk on water?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you’ve delivered, will soon deliver you.

Mary did you know that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will calm a storm with his hand?
Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
And when your kiss your little baby, you have kissed the face of God.

Oh Mary did you know

The blind will see, the deaf will hear, the dead will live again.
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the praises of the lamb

Mary did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary did you know that your baby boy would one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy is heaven’s perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you’re holding is the great I AM

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tower:
Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

Verse 1:
Let it be Jesus
The first name that I call
Let it be Jesus
My song inside the storm
I’ll never need another

For me, to live is Christ
For me, to live is Christ
God I breathe Your name above everything
Let it be, Let it be Jesus

Let it be Jesus
From the rising of the sun
Let it be Jesus
When all is said and done
I’ll never need another, Jesus there’s no other

Bridge:
Should I ever be abandoned
Should I ever be acclaimed
Should I ever be surrounded by the fire and the flame
There’s a name I will remember
There’s a name I will proclaim
Let it be, Let it be Jesus (x3)

Guitar Playing Tips From Soccer Observations

soccerSeveral of my friends are glued to the TV watching the World Cup Soccer Games. Have you seen any of the games? They certainly run a lot! Was thinking about it this morning and came up with 7 tips guitar players can learn from Soccer.

1. Practice

You know these players have practiced all of their lives. When you spent time with a sport, or playing and instrument, you become a better player/musician. Like these Soccer players, guitarists can practice.

2. Love Playing

They got great by loving the sport. Like them, we can love playing the guitar. We can have a joy and passion learning to play this wonderful instrument. When you love something, it’s fun to spend time doing it. When you are playing worship songs, don’t you just LOVE expressing how much you appreciate our God?

3. Study To Improve Your Skills

To reach the level of playing they have, you know they have studied the best players and learned new tricks of the trade. Learning from guitar teachers will help you avoid some bad technique that can slow you up or injure your hands. Yeah, it’s not uncommon to hear people having pain playing their guitar.

4. Play Their Best On Stage

During the game, they are giving their all. When performing, we can play our best. When they fall, they just get up. If we mess up, don’t stop. Keep playing. People don’t notice any mistakes unless you make a big deal about it.

5. Keep Your Eyes On The Ball

Everyone playing on the field is focusing on where the ball is on the field. As a Christian, in whatever we do, we are to focus our attention on Christ, the Author and Finisher of our faith. We can have our eyes fixed on Christ even while playing the guitar. For years I used to play background music at parties, and spent the entire time worshiping our Awesome God.
