SOW 2016-2017

 

I’m here! I’m at the end of my first semester at the School of Worship, down here in Costa Mesa, California. I was trying to think of some words to describe these last four months…here’s what pops into my mind:

challenging
refining
HOMEWORK
family
growth

did I mention challenging?

This has easily been the best, yet most exhausting time of my life. God has really been shaping and molding me this last semester. Each week we’d go through 14 different classes, and each class has at least an hour or two of homework. So you could say we kept busy. 🙂

Every day we are challenged; spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. We go to class, we dive into God’s word and then we’re reminded of how messy we really are as people. It’s like a mirror is put in front of you, there you see the things God wants to refine you in (the mess) and sometimes you leave feeling discouraged. But God’s been really showing me that that’s not what He sees. God flips the mirror over and what He sees is the reflection of Jesus. The more we run to Him, and are obedient (even when it’s hard) the more we resemble Christ. This verse has been my theme for the last 4 months,

“and He said to me. ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness ” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 NKJV

You see, we need Jesus. I need Jesus. My strength isn’t strength at all, my strength is actually being weak. Because as the scripture says above, in my weakness I’m made strong through JESUS.

So friends, here I am. At the School of Worship, weaker than ever, but stronger than ever. For that, I will boast about it!

P.S. Got some original music cooking. Have hopes to release an EP by the end of the year. Will you join me in prayer for this next season of songwriting? I want the Lord to create music that will really minister to His people. Feel free to comment below some song ideas (themes) of what you’d be encouraged with!
