"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord,
are changed into the same image from glory to glory,
even as by the Spirit of the Lord."
-2 Corinthians 3.17-18
“If you turn back your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on my holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight and the holy day of the LORD honorable; if you honor it, not going your own ways, or seeking your own pleasure, or talking idly; then you shall take delight in the LORD, and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth; I will feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father, for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
so ive been working on this new album… and i think my ears are about to explode. but thank God it’s almost done.
God, be gracious to us, and bless us. May he make his face shine towards us, so that your way may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations.
Let the peoples give thanks to you, O God; let the peoples give thanks to you, all of them. Let the nations be glad and shout for joy, for you will judge the peoples fairly and guide the nations on earth.
Let the peoples give thanks to you, God; let the peoples give thanks to you, all of them. The earth has yielded its harvest; may God, our God, bless us. May God continue to bless us, so that all the ends of the earth will fear him.
on tuesday, june 12th, 2012 i had a dream…
“i was walking around my home when jon yee calls and informs me that he’s leaving loveasu and would like for me to take his place as worship leader at the prayer house for monday night prayer and worship at arizona state university, and also tells me that united pursuit band will be there and that I would be leading them. i said yes, hang up and start running around my home franticly looking for united pursuit music on the internet to print out. my mother informs me that she is more than willing to drive me to campus in her big truck, so I quickly grab my guitar and a few sheets of printed music and head on out. as soon as we arrive, i run towards the prayer house and i’m greeted by united pursuit. i look at them and start apologizing for not having all their music down, but they look at me and say, “don’t worry about it, just play from your heart.”
then i wake up.
its now wednesday, march 13th, 2013.
what’s happened since then?
- jon yee did step down from loveasu and is now in the marketplace for the glory of God
- i met michael ketterer of united pursuit (*see story below)
- i am now on staff with loveasu as a worship leader
- i’ve been leading worship at the prayer house at asu on monday nights
- i’ve been leading worship with nothing but original songs the Lord has given to my heart
wow. yea. amazing.
lots of the dream has already happened and it’s also still happening.
“and it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions” -joel 2.28 (nkjv)
The Lord is faithful.
*so i had no idea if i was going to actually meet my favorite worship team, united pursuit (like ever) or how that part of my dream was going to play out. but the very weekend before the first monday night prayer and worship, i was invited by a couple brothers to attend the wilder tour conference in pasadena, california, so i went without ever checking the scheduled speakers or worship teams. lo and behold, who did i see standing in the back of the auditorium praising God? yup, michael ketterer (my favorite singer of united pursuit), and so i go up to him and i go to shake his hand but he extends the hug and we start filling up with joy.
