So I was listening to a sermon from the pastor of Hillsong, Brian Houston like 5 minutes ago. And I feel like many of you need to hear this. JESUS HAS SET YOU FREE, STOP CONDEMNING YOURSELF. John 8 New Living Translation (NLT) A Woman Caught in Adultery 8 Jesus returned to the Mount of Olives, … Continue reading JESUS TAKES YOU AS YOU ARE.

Pick Up Your Crown


There have been some dreams of mine that I’ve been pushing aside out of fear, and I don’t believe that I’m the only one. When God puts a specific desire on our heart, they are very rarely simple or easily achievable. We were created to carry out extraordinary destinies. This can be terrifying to the flesh, but whenever you let this fear hold you back from your dreams, you are putting limits on God.

So, where do we move from there?  We’ve established the absolute core of what our worship should look like, so what’s next?

Well, now we move on to what worship should be to each of us on a personal level.  We should always remain focused on the three core philosophies, but there is even more to it than that.

To start, it’s important to note that worship is not just singing.  Worship is “the feeling or expression of reverence and adoration” of God, not just through music, but also through prayer and the hearing of God’s word.  All of these moments are opportunities for us to…
