2016-The Year of Worship!!

The song below, "The Anthem" by William Murphy, takes me to a place of worship and I believe that this is INDEED the season for more worship!! We all love to shout and as a musician, I love to play those hand-clapping, foot-stomping songs but this is the season for worship. Worship takes us from where we are into the presence of God where there is fulness of joy and at His right hand are pleasures evermore (Psalms 16:11)!! As we grow in Christ, we should seek Him for who He is and not for what He can give us, the more we do this, the more He'll blow our minds with unforseen blessings!!! Glory to GOD!!! So in this new year, let us endeavor to draw closer to the Lord, His word says that if we draw nigh unto Him, He will draw nigh unto us (James 4:8) 

Listen to the lyrics of this song- The Anthem by William Murphy

Hallelujah you have won the victory

Hallelujah you have won it all for me

death could not hold you down

you are the risen king

seated in majesty

you are the risen king

Hallelujah you have won the victory

Hallelujah you have won it all for me

The Ultimate Instruction Manual

John 10:10 says, The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. Christians have to understand that the devil is doing his job and doing it well. Ladies and gentlemen, THE DEVIL IS NOT YOUR FRIEND; he could care less about your feelings, your emotions, your ambitions, or any other aspects of your life. The only thing the devil wants to do is take as many people to hell with him as possible, it's just as simple as that. The above scripture makes it clear that the devil wants to destroy any and everything that pertains to God's will and God's way so what do you think is going to happen when you give your life to Christ? Do you think the devil is going to roll out a red carpet and let you fulfill your destiny and purpose? These questions may appear to be somewhat condescending, but you'll be surprised how many Christians are ignorant of satan's ultimate intentions. 

It is absolutely vital that you understand that the more God uses you, the more the enemy will relentlessly attack you. Why, because he doesn't want you to upset his apple cart, so he fights with everything he has in hopes of eliminating all that threatens his objectives. As long as you're saying one thing and living another, he doesn't bother you; As long as you're content to fit in with the worlds way of doing things, he doesn't bother you because you're not a threat to him, but once you make up your mind to live a holy life, watch what he does. 

One of the main weapons satan uses against the saints of God is ignorance. Have you ever purchased a new appliance or electronic item? Almost every new appliance or electronic item comes with an instruction manual and unless you're electronically savvy, you have to read the instructions in order for that item to function properly. The same way you have to read the instructions to learn how to use an item you're unfamiliar with is the same way that we must read the instruction manual, God's word, in order for our lives to function properly. If you find yourself overwhelmed by life's daily obstacles, that is probably a telltale sign that you need to stop and read the instruction manual again. The more you get in the Word, the more of a threat you become to satan, the more of a threat you become, the harder he fights you. Why, because knowledge of God's word plus action equals DANGER for satan. 

The Word of God is not only an instruction manual for your everyday life, it is also a powerful microscope, which allows you to see through the tricks of the enemy. A person who is really in the Word the way they should be is less likely to fall into satan's traps because Hebrews 4:12 says, For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Have you ever wondered why it seems so hard to find time to study the Word of God? It's because there is life in the word...there is power in the word...there is peace in the word, but you won't know what's available to you if you don't read the ultimate instruction manual, the Word of God. 

Way too many Christians are succumbing to the ways of this world because they're not reading the instruction manual. Studying God's Word doesn't make a person perfect, but it does make you fully aware of who you are in Christ and the privileges you possess in Him. Imagine this, you are the son or daughter of a very rich person, they die and leave their entire fortune to you. Their fortune will be of little value to you if you don't know you have it. The same is true for us today, Jesus died that we may have life and have it more abundantly. What good will that do you if you don't know you have it? Hosea 4:6 says, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. In other words, the devil is running rough shot in the lives of Christians because they don't know who they are in Christ.

Please understand, there is power in the Word of God. Whatever situation you may find yourself in today, put the Word on it. Things cannot stay the same when you put the Word of God on the situation. Isaiah 55:11 says, So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. In other words, God's going to do just what He says, but there is no way you can know about the power God has given you if you don't find it in the Word. God's word lets you know there is no situation or circumstance you can't overcome if you're in Him. Romans 8:37 says, Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. God never promised us a flowery bed of ease, but he promised us that, with him, we will overcome any and every obstacle the devil puts in our path. 

I would be remissed if I gave you the diagnosis, not studying the Word of God, without giving you a solution to the problem. Many people don't study the word because they don't know how so here's some of the things I do to study God's word and get understanding. 
(1) Pray before you study- ask God to open your mind and heart to receive what you're reading and put it into ACTION
(2) Get a Bible concordance- this will help you find certain subjects which will help you find exactly what you need to study. 
(3) Get a Bible dictionary- a Bible dictionary will give you the definition of various words in a biblical perspective. 
(4) Study different versions of the Bible- Personally, I love to study the Amplified version because it really breaks down each scripture and I find it easier to understand. 
(5) Take notes- This will help you keep up with what you study and you'll be able to look back at those notes for future references. 
(6) Don't be afraid to ask questions- find someone who is spiritually seasoned and ask them questions if there is something you don't understand. 

Some of the things I've listed above can be either purchased or you can find them online for free. is a great site that has commentaries, concordances, and many different versions of the Bible. There are many, many more ways to study the Word of God, but the most important part is to get an understanding. Getting in the Word of God is just like looking at the weather forecast, you will always be prepared for whatever lies ahead. Benjamin Franklin has a quote that says, "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail".

Does God know who you are?

You may wonder about my subject for this post because obviously God knows who we are. He said in his word that he knows the number of hairs on our heads but today we're speaking about the end times when Jesus comes back to separate the righteous from the unrighteous.

Let's look at Matthew 7:21-23
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

We see many people in this day in time who proclaim God's Word but at the end of the day, will God know who you are when he returns? I don't know about you but I don't want to go through all I go through on a daily basis just to hear God say, depart from me, I know you not. Christians have to be mindful of their motives. We have to examine why we do what we do and who we do it for. God doesn't give us our gifts and talents so that we can be exalted; he gives us gifts and talents so that HE can be exalted.

Too many ministers, pastors, teachers, etc. start thinking that they have it all together because people pat them on the back but Does God know who you are? What a shame it will be to have all types of honor and prestige on this earth just to hear God say, "Depart from me, I know you not". After reading the above scriptures, I had to really check myself. I begin to ask the Lord to purify my motives, help me seek to please you first and not man. I asked the Lord, "Please Lord, don't let my running be in vain". When I stand before God, I want to hear him say, "Well done good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of the Lord"! 

In conclusion, Christians need to realize that God made us to glorify HIM and to upbuild HIS Kingdom. There's nothing wrong with people complimenting you and your ministry, but don't allow those compliments to block your perspective of who you are and whose you are! Let us pray: Father God in the name of Jesus, Lord I humble myself before you right now and I ask that you will search me Lord...purify my me seek to please you in everything I do. Lord God, help me to realize that I was created to glorify you and you said if I humble myself, that you will exalt me in due time. So Lord help me to patiently wait on you to exalt me and help me not try to exalt myself. Lord help me understand that it's all about you and not about me....Not my will Lord but your will be done. These blessings we ask in your name, AMEN! 

Remain blessed!

Be Encouraged!!

Today I feel led to encourage God's people. I have experienced many overwhelming and challenging situations in my life but I have found that encouraging other people has always helped encourage me. So, I'm sharing a few scriptures that will hopefully make you understand that God is with you and that He will never leave you nor forsake you. After losing my husband of 11 years on March 18, 2013, I thought I was going to die...BUT GOD!! No matter what you find yourself in, God's got your best interests at heart.  Yes, I feel so lonely sometimes but no matter what I feel, God is right here with me through it all. BE ENCOURAGED!
No power in the sky above or in the earth below – indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39
Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall. Psalm 55:22
Now may the God Who gives the power of patient endurance (steadfastness) and Who supplies encouragement, grant you to live in such mutual harmony and such full sympathy with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus. Romans 15:5
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:28-29
God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. Psalm 46:1
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.Hebrews 2:18 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful.  2 Timothy 4:7
For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 2 Corinthians 4:17
Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. John 14:1
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Matthew 28:20

Learn to play hand clapping praise songs by ear!!

"Discover 5 Simple Techniques to Playing Over 101 Toe-tapping, Foot-stomping, Hand-clappingPraise Songs by Ear!"
... and 101 praise songs is just what I could count off the top of my head (there's plenty more)! 
What most musicians don't understand is that almost ALL praise songsfollow a similar pattern. In fact, MOST praise songs share the SAME exact rhythms, chords, and bass runs --- they just have different lyrics.
It's not that you have to learn 101 different songs... because once you learn the 5 easy rules I'm going to reveal on this page, you won't have to memorize hundreds of songs. You'll be able to play a countless number of songs on both the piano and organ BY EAR just by following the five steps over and over again!
Keep reading to learn how you can implement these five steps that will allow you to master tons of your favorite praise songs or click here to see video samples and if you would like to order this course...
 Finally, you can stop bothering other musicians for tips and advice AND learn the techniques on your own. They are not as hard as you think ...
Here is what you'll gain from studying this course:
 Discover the five parts to a praise song and how to recognize them with your ear. Knowing them is one thing and recognizing is another. By the end of the program, you'll NOT only be able to recognize the different parts of a praise song, BUT you'll have several options to consider when playing them (we never play the same thing over and over ... I will teach you several different ways to play EACH part).
  Learn what "A-B" songs are and how they differ from "A-B-C-D" songs. This is something that hundreds of gospel musicians still don't know. It frustrates me to hear a musician playing an "A-B-C-D" praise song when they should be playing an "A-B" praise song. It is very very very important to know the differences between the two types. Yes, one is an extension of the other --- but the extensions make ALL THE DIFFERENCE. You'll learn just what I'm talking about.
 How to transition between parts A, B, C, D and E of a praise song. Just because you know each part doesn't mean you'll know how to transition between each one. I will show you smooth ways of transitioning between, for example, parts A and B, or parts C and D. This is very important as it helps you to distinguish one part from the other. These transitions can also serve as "indicators" to let you know what parts are coming next.
 Learn three methods to figure out what type of praise song is being sung. I will show you, step-by-step, how to classify different praise songs. You will also learn how to figure out when a praise song has transitioned from an "A-B" to an "A-B-C-D" or from an "A-B-C-D" to an "A-B" praise song. These are priceless techniques, especially if your church sings a medley of praise songs, one after the other.
 Over 10 ascending and descending bass-runs to keep your praise songs sounding different each time. You never want to sound like you only know one or two bass runs. I will show you ascending, descending and chromatic bass runs for each of the five parts (a, b, c, d & e). I promise that you'll learn some new ones by the end of the program.
 An "over-the-shoulders" look at exactly what I do with my right hand.Many people struggle with things to do with their right hand. I will show you several different chords to play (1-part chord progressions, 2-part chord progressions and even 3-part chord progressions). Remember... playing by ear is all about having options. If you don't have any options, you might as well be sight reading (which I have nothing against because I do both). The reality is --- in order to keep up with a charismatic service, you can't be glued to sheet music. You have toKNOW what to do and HOW to apply it in the RIGHT situation.
 Several "runs" that are ready-to-use the minute I show them to you. If you feel like your music is bare, then I'll definitely give you some right-hand "runs" to consider. From pentatonic scales, to chromatically descending pentatonic scales, to one-fingered alternations, I will show you some "fill-ins" that you'll be sure to use at your next church service.
