Sabbath

9/29/17 : Auburn Academy

Today, Mollie and Azriel and I did a chapel and vespers service at Auburn Academy in Washington. It was the second time Azriel and I have done music here, as we came out 5 years ago (although then we were representing Union, not The Current, our independent ministry). 

Last time we came with a couple other good friends, Chavez and Lindy, and we did a few of Richard Young's old favorites. I found a video from that actual vespers, as well as one that we did here, but was recorded at a later date. 

I cringe listening to myself back then, but then again I cringe now too, so... I guess I gotta get over myself. 

Blessings!

8/25/17 : Fullness

This song has been my worship jam for the last couple weeks. 

Fullness of eternal promise
Stirring in Your sons and daughters
Earth revealing heaven’s wonders
Spirit come, Spirit come
What You spoke is now unfolding
All Your children shall behold it
Dreams awaken in this moment
Spirit come, Spirit come

Pour it out
Let Your love run over
Here and now
Let Your glory fill this house
Pour it out
Let Your love run over
Here and now
Let Your glory fill this house

Now the world awaits Your presence
And this power is within us
We will rise to be Your witness
Spirit come, Spirit come

Pour it out
Let Your love run over
Here and now
Let Your glory fill this house
Pour it out
Let Your love run over
Here and now
Let Your glory fill this house

Tongues of fire
Testifying of the Son
One desire
Spirit come, Spirit come
— Elevation Worship

Day 46: Outta Gas.

God knew what He was doing when He created a day for us to just "stop". Stop working, stop trying so hard, stop striving for our own salvation, sustenance, and self-preservation. He created us with a gas tank that runs dry every 7 days, and He loves to be all we need to make it another 7.

I'm outta gas, and I'm pumped to stop at my favorite station. It feels good. :) 

Day 39: "Please Forgive Me"

This song has been my literal prayer many times in the last 5 years. There have even been times where I would literally sing these words out loud because I was feeling so separated from God by my selfishness. I felt like a failure, making the same mistakes over and over, seemingly stuck in one place as a sinner. In those times I felt like the promise of being transformed from "glory to glory" was not really true for me. 

But after asking for forgiveness, I feel God pick me up a bit, and I've got the courage to keep trying. I hope its a blessing to you too!

“And if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
— 1 John 1:9

Day 30: Hump Day

On the other side of hump day, all I can say is I can't wait for Sabbath. God knew what He was doing when He created a day where we stop.

Work and grind for 6 days, but on the 7th chill. Stop worrying about finances, bills, how many students are coming to Union College, etc. Stop trying so hard to be a perfect Christian. Just let God take care of things for a change.

So, I'm gonna grind for a few more days, pay bills best I can, and try my hardest to set good, Christian habits. 

But I can't wait for Sabbath. 

 

 

 

 

I just logged on to post for today and saw this was sitting as a draft!
