Treated as Gold

Posted in God Music tagged , , , , , at 9:48 am by askandimagine

It’s awesome to know that God purifies us just as gold is purified: through fire. Ouch! The mind boggling thing is that we can actually find joy in this process. The joy comes from knowing that there is purpose in the experiences and hardships we go through. It is not always easy to see any meaning during the time, but God in His goodness often shows you that even in difficult times, His hand is at work.

I’ve come to realize that no matter what hardships you are facing, the real issue is trusting God. God, are you really doing something? Have you forgotten me? Do you really care? Will this situation ever change? The anwsers are yes, no, yes, and yes! He DOES have our back and promises not to leave us. Not trusting in God to be able to create opportunities or redeem circumstances is the root cause of stress in the believer’s life. Yet seeing His faithfulness (in the lives of others or looking back on your own life) will encourage you and give you a rightful perspective in a heart beat! Let’s keep our eyes fixed on the one that is bringing us through fire and into a place of great beauty and abundance.

My Musical Mayhem Explained

Posted in God Music at 8:16 am by askandimagine

SO to most people it is no surprise that I LOVE MUSIC! Like really love it. I can listen to music like I’m getting paid for it 🙂 I grew up in a musical household, which probably has a lot to do with this. There usually was never a silent moment in the house; I woke up to loud hip-hop and went to sleep to smooth R&B.

Once I became a Christian, though, my musical world shifted. I’ll spare you the details, but I eventually didn’t have a desire for the music I grew up with. It wasn’t a “I can’t listen to that” type of thing, but the desire was just not there anymore. So my Christian music journey began…

I was content with this for a couple of years, but in the past year of so, I have had this hunger to find great – unique – excellent – God inspired – AWESOME music. I refuse to settle for what is on continuous play on Christian radio. DO NOT get me wrong — I love a lot of these songs but there is SOO much more.

[I really do believe that God’s people should excel in the arts. I long for that day when we have no. 1 hits. I’m talking about not only worship music, but encouraging music, and music about life. Religion says “it has to be this way and this way only”. We know that this mindset has caused a lot more damage that good. In the same we should not put the music of God’s people in a box.]

Off that rabbit trail — anyhow, knowing that there’s got to be some fresh sounds out there put me on this search that probably will never end – “discovering” new or underground artist who love God and love expressing their thoughts and feelings through music.

Now that I have said all of this I think that you will understand why I was so pleased to find this website. This will be a nice tool for me and it put a alleluia smile on my face the other night! Must I mention the beauty of their website — very cutting edge – but that’s another post for another day 😉

His Love is Everything!

Posted in God Music tagged , , at 7:31 am by askandimagine

When I am dry and thirsty Lord,
And I’m crying out for more,
I know I can trust in your love.
In the darkness in the night
When I’m starving for the light
I know I can trust in Your love

You keep no records of my sin,
and you don’t remember all my shame.

Your love heals every disease
Your love fulfills my every need
Your love is everything to me
Your love is everything

I will not forget
I wont forget your promises
I will not forget
I wont forget your love.

I will not forget
I wont forget nothing is impossible
I will not forget
I wont forget your love.

This past March, I had the privilege of going on a mission trip to Atlanta, GA to serve the GA Tech campus with a group of college students from my local church.  There we teamed up with The Father’s House and the campus group Global Outreach. Darrian serves on the worship team and is active in campus ministry. He has recently released a music CD that I  HIGHLY ENCOURAGE  you to check out and purchase. It is truly annointed.

Our God

Posted in God Music tagged , , , at 8:51 am by askandimagine

Chris Tomlin Our God

Water You turned into wine
Opened the eyes of the blind
There’s no one like you
None like You

Into the darkness you shine
Out of the ashes we rise
There is no one like You
None like You

Our God is greater
Our God is stronger
God you are higher than any other
Our God is Healer
Awesome in power
Our God, Our God

and if our God is for us
then who could ever stop us
and if our God is with us
then what could stand against
