Holy Spirit You Are Welcome

“Holy Spirit you are welcome here / Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere / Your glory God, is what our hearts long for / To be overcome by your presence Lord /  Let us become more aware of your presence / Let us experience the glory of your goodness!”

I cannot get this song out of my head….I played it over and over while at work yesterday…..over and over once I got home from work…..I went to bed with the words embedded and playing over and over in my head….I woke up this morning and to no surprise these exact words were still in my head!

I pray that you encounter the sweet presence of God today. I pray that even in your daily tasks and routine, you are drawn to him. I pray that you are embraced with his comfort, his grace, his love, and his goodness. His presence is indescribable….Encounter him today and may you encounter someone else that is blessed by the sweet Holy Spirit upon you!

Love You Forever | For Your Glory

I’m a worshiper at heart. I love to worship God. I love to listen to worship music. If I were called to sing and dance for the glory of God 24/hours a day, I would. I’ll never be deserving of the grace, favor, and blessings shown toward me, which is why, He’ll always be deserving of all glory, honor, and praise.

Speaking of worship and worship music, I know I’m not the only Tasha Cobbs fan out there. In fact, I have an earlier post for another song by her, but If you still don’t know who she is, allow me to introduce you! Her ministry is incredible – her voice is incredible – her music is incredible – and most importantly, her passionate love for God is incredible – it resonates in the sound of her voice and in her worship! I dare you to preview just one of her songs off her latest album, Grace. It released earlier in the year, but I can’t stop listening to it and you won’t be disappointed – especially, if you want a worship encounter with God!

So, I’m driving home from work yesterday listening to this song, which I absolutely love – I get home and the lyrics are still in my head – In walks my husband from work, singing the lyrics to this song! I asked, what are you doing singing that song – how do you know the words to that song? He rarely listens to this CD and doesn’t have it in his car. So, it blew me away that he came in singing the exact song that I listened to on my way home from work – how crazy is that! I guess I play it so much, the lyrics were stuck in his head too.

Your goodness, your mercy, and your kindness towards me…
Your love is so amazing it brings me to my knees

Ohhhhh gonna love you forever

Lord you’re like the river that never runs dry
My heart is your temple living inside
Lord you are the air I breathe to keep me alive
Lord I need you close please stay around

You won’t ever give up on me
And all that I have will never be
Enough to show you how much I love you
Lord I’m gonna try,try,try,try,try,try
Lord you’re like the river that never runs dry

– Lyrics to “Love You Forever” by Tasha Cobbs

Ok, and since I’m still listening to this CD I have another favorite that I wanted to share. It’s another song titled, “For Your Glory”. Some of the stanzas are repeated. When you repeat declarations over and over like, For Your glory/ I will do anything/ Just to see You/ To behold You as my King/ I wanna be where You are / Peace is where You are/ Joy is where You are / And Love is who You are – these words really make the spirit leap inside of you! My heart is to see God’s people receive salvation  – to see people experience deliverance – to see people fall deep in love and be drowned by God’s sweet presence – to see people desperately seeking after God! For His glory – I’ll do anything!!!!

Lord if I
Find favor in Your sight
Lord please
Hear my hearts cry

I’m desperately waiting
To be where You are.
I’ll cross the hottest desert
I’ll travel near or far

For Your glory
I will do anything
Just to see You
To behold You as my King

I’m desperately waiting
To be where You are
I’ll cross the hottest desert
I’ll travel near or far

I wanna be where You are
I gotta be where You are
I wanna be where You are
I gotta be where You are

I wanna be where You are
Peace is where You are
Joy is where You are
And Love is who You are

Lyrics to “For Your Glory” by Tasha Cobbs

One Nights | Jesus Culture | Charlotte, NC | 2013

So…..I was able to see my favorite Christian band in concert this past weekend!

 JESUS CULTURE!!!!!

This band has such a great anointing. I love their ministry and music. They truly know how to create an atmosphere that allows the Holy-Ghost-Burning-Fire-Presence-of-God be felt throughout the room!

Here are some lyrics to one of my favorite songs, “Set a Fire” off their album, Live from New York with Martin Smith:

“Set a Fire Down in my Soul
That I can’t contain that I can’t control
I want more of you God
I want more of you God”

Believe it, or not these are the only lines in the song. It’s amazing, when you repeat these lines over and over, how each word resonates within your spirit. It truly feels like the Lord is starting a fire within you! Despite, how much you feel like God fills you – it’s never enough. My desire is to have an overflow of His love, grace, mercy, wisdom, direction, peace…and every ounce of Him….so much that I can’t contain it and it overflows!

Running After You For the Rest of My Life…

Anyone else excited you found Him – The search is over! You no longer have to seek Him in  men, women, relationships, idols, money, drugs, alcohol…and so on.

I was listening to this song by Vashawn Mitchell and felt peace knowing that I’ve made a vow to run after Him for the rest of my life! 

I will seek You until I find You; For the rest of my life,
I’ll keep running after You.
I will seek You until I find You;
For the rest of my life,
I’ll keep running after You.

I’m lost without You;
I’ve finally found my place in You.
Drifted away, I’m here to stay
Safe in Your grace.
There’s no turning back now;
Closer than I’ve ever been before.
There’s tranquility, blessed security,
Safe in Your arms… so glad I’ve found You.

Lyrics to “Lost” song by, Vashawn Mitchell

“Spirit Break Out”

Our Father, all of Heaven roars Your name
Sing louder, let this place erupt with praise
Can you hear it, the sound of Heaven touching Earth
The sound of Heaven touching Earth

Spirit break out
Break our walls down
Spirit break out
Heaven come down

King Jesus You’re the name we’re lifting high
Your glory shaking up the earth and skies
Revival we wanna see Your kingdom here
We wanna see Your kingdom here

Spirit break out
Break our walls down
Spirit break out
Heaven come down

Lyrics to “Spirit Break Out” song by Kim Walker

So, I just bought Kim Walker’s new CD, Alive on iTunes a couple of days ago and I can’t stop listening to it. This is one of my favorite songs!

This song has such a powerful declaration – “Spirit break out / Break our walls down/ Spirit break out / Heaven come down – these words are soooo moving! I was listening to this song on the way to work in the car and singing these words alone, will invite the holy spirit! Imagine if all the earth sang and shouted these words – I wonder what would break out of Heaven across the earth?

Drowned In God’s Presence

Ever been drowned, succumbed, or lost in the presence of God? What an amazing feeling!

I was just sitting here watching this video and suddenly felt the presence of God! And I’m telling you if you’ve ever experienced His presence – you know what I mean when I say He’ll just jack you up! You suddenly feel like a child – you become submissive, and you just obey and let him do His thing. Suddenly, the tears come down and you’re crying like a baby in awe of how marvelous and how precious He is. Maybe, you fall to your knees to bow before Him or suddenly, you have a dance in your step and feel the urge to just dance and move your feet in honor of Him. Maybe, you just lift your hands to praise His holy name! Maybe, you lift your voice and sing in the holy spirit. Whatever you do – nothing can explain how powerful and moving His presence is! It overtakes you and you become drowned and lost in his presence!

If you’ve never encountered Jesus…if you’ve never met Him – Allow yourself to lose your inhibitions…Allow yourself to be free and just welcome the Lord as you watch this video.

“Set The World On Fire”

This morning I woke up in the bed with a cloud of words in my head….I just sat there with these random words flashing. They were: EMBERS, FLAME, ASHES, IGNITE, WIND, FLICKER, RUSH, SMOKE, MOVE, ACT, QUICK, FORCE, PERMEATE, NO RESTRICTIONS, NO DOUBT, NO HESITATION, TREMBLING, FEAR OF GOD.

So, I grabbed my journal…wrote these words down…went in the kitchen….turned on Pandora and I heard this song play by Britt Nicole. As much, as I listen to the same Pandora station I’ve never heard this song before and didn’t know who Britt Nicole was, but this song was parallel to whatever the Holy Spirit wanted to tell me! This is just one of the few reasons why I love the Lord….He randomly shows up to surprise you with the unexpected!

“Set The World On Fire”

I wanna set the world on fire
Until it’s burning bright for You
It’s everything that I desire
Can I be the one You use?
I, I am small but
You, You are big enough
I, I am weak but
You, You are strong enough to
Take my dreams
Come and give them wings
Lord with You
Nothing I cannot do
Nothing I cannot do

I wanna feed the hungry children
And reach across the farthest land
And tell the broken there is healing
And mercy in the Father’s hands

Take my dreams
Come and give them wings
Lord with You
Nothing I cannot do
Nothing I cannot do

Lyrics to “Set The World On Fire” song by BRITT NICOLE

 

“Everything that can endure the fire, you shall make it go through the fire, and it shall be clean: nevertheless it shall be purified with the water of purification: and all that cannot endure the fire you shall make go through the water.” – Numbers 31:23
