The ‘Like Jesus’ challenge: Week 5 (Spending time with God)

By September 4, 2017 Like Jesus Challenge
Week 5:spending time with god

Hey guys!

I hope you enjoyed your weekend. How did you do on last weeks challenge? If you haven’t done last weeks challenge, click here. If you would like to start the challenge from the beginning, click here.

This week, we are going to be focusing a little bit more on the time you spend with God. So, if you are listening to the instructions, I continually tell you that you need to be spending time with Jesus in order to actually have a relationship with Jesus. Praying and studying the Bible are important in your walk with God. You can’t have a relationship with someone you don’t talk to. You can’t worship someone you know nothing about. That is why it is so crutial that you read your bible and pray as much as you possibly can on a daily basis.

Whenever I went a few weeks without reading the Bible, I was a brat. I had an attitude and really, I was just overall mean. Some of my friends can testify to that. Reading the Bible and spending time with God helps you grow your fruit of the spirit. If you apply the things to your life, you will continue to get more joy, kindness, etc.
week 5 of the like Jesus challenge will be about spending time with God. You read for it?

Week 5: Each day this week, after spending time with God, send your notes to 3 friends and remind them to spend time with Jesus as well.

If you do not take notes, I highly encourage you to. If I didn’t have my notes, I wouldn’t remember anything. When I take notes, I can actually go back and reread them if I needed to. For me, I have to take notes. My accountability partner and I send each other our notes every day so we can make sure we’re spending time with God and even learn about what they are reading or see a certain passage from a different perspective.

If you don’t have an accountability partner, you should really pray about getting one. They can help you to stay encouraged, remind you to spend time with God, and be a helping hand to you in your walk. You aren’t supposed to do this alone. Don’t. So when spending time with God each day this week, make sure you send an accountability partner your notes and remind them.

Remember, stay smiling! Memorize more bible verses! Keep doing all of the past challenges and let God change your heart. I hope you all have a blessed week

Slow Song: Jesus I Come by Elevation Worship

By March 1, 2017 Youth Worship
Jesus i come lyrics chords start worship band

Jesus I come

I remember the first time I ever heard this song. I was driving to Michigan for Christmas and every single word just spoke joy into my heart. Ever since then, I have been begging for our worship team to do ‘Jesus I Come.’ We actually just learned it this past Sunday and will hopefully be playing it this Wednesday. I love both the chords and the lyrics to this song. My absolute favorite part of this song is the bridge.

Lyrics

Verse 1:
Oh how I need Your grace
More than my words can say
Jesus I come Jesus I come
In all my weaknesses
You are my confidence
Jesus I come Jesus I come
Chorus:
I will rise stand redeemed
Heaven open over me
To Your name eternally
Endless glory I will bring (oh)
Verse 2:
Oh what amazing love
We need Your cleansing flood
Jesus I come Jesus I come
In every broken place
You are my righteousness
Jesus I come Jesus I come
Bridge:
Thank You Jesus
Just as I am I come
Hallelujah
Oh what amazing love

Why I love the bridge

The reason I love the bridge is because it says just as I am I come. It focuses on the fact that we don’t need to be perfect before we start following Jesus. We don’t have to have it all together because are savior has it all together. Jesus doesn’t want us after we have been a Christian for a certain amount of years. He doesn’t want us after we do a really good deed at least once a week. He wants us as we are. Jesus wants us in our brokenness. You don’t have to wait to put the pieces back together before coming to Him. Wanting to put the pieces back together is what He is wanting to do.

So when it says “Just as I am I come” it instantly brings tears to my eyes. A great and almighty God wants me. He wants my filth, so He can cleanse me. He wants my brokenness so He can fix it.

The entire song, overall was well written and makes for an amazing worship song. For the chords to this song, Subscribe below.

Slow Song: You Won’t Relent by Jesus Culture

you won't relent lyrics

You Won’t Relent

I love this song. The first time I heard it, I fell in love with it. The words are just so astounding. There are 4 different parts to the song and they are all amazing.
This is one of my favorites to do with the youth because it is such an emotional song. I could do this song every single Wednesday because it’s that good but most Wednesday’s we don’t have a drummer. My boyfriend says that this song needs drums or else it won’t have the dynamics it needs to sound phenomenal. This song has a lot of quiet and an equal amount of loud parts to it. There are a lot of builds and a lot of drops. So if you’re going to do this song, drums are recommended.

You Can’t Read Your Bible Enough

Reading the bible is one of the most important things you can do as a Christian, as long as you’re doing your best to live it out. It’s something that brings you closer to God while it changes your heart and attitude. The more you read it, the more you learn. Trust me, you can’t read your bible enough. You use what you study through out the day and watch how God uses your new biblical knowledge to enrich your daily life. You are suppose to take up our cross daily and spend time with Him as much as we can.

6 Solutions For A Bad Singer Who Wants To Join The Band

By January 19, 2017 Youth Worship

So, you have a bad singer who wants to join the band?

We all have had people join the band that aren’t really ‘qualified’ to; if you haven’t, you will. It can be a real pain in the butt to allow an untalented person on stage. My boyfriend and I have had our fair share of not so pleasant singers that felt like God has called them to worship. You’re a worship leader and you want to be nice but some people are just… bad.

This is one of my favorite systems to use when involving money. If you aren’t good at saving money or if you are one of those people that blows their pay check within a few days of getting paid and then struggling to make it to your next pay check, this is definitely something for you.
I’ve always been really good at saving money but I wanted to see how well this worked. Even if you’re good at saving, it keeps it organized. So even after I proved my theory, I am still to this day using it.
