cross and blood of the lamb Devotion end times

Potter’s Hand

When I started to songlead a small church in my city, I noticed some of the attendees were watching me sing as if they were just expectators of a performance. They were not worshipping God outwardly. What I mean is, at least they could have outwardly shown their devotion to God through physical act of worship like singing. But I’m glad they were clapping their hands or sometimes dance.

I knew they could not sing ofcourse if they are not familiar with the song and there’s no copy available because the church has just started. I was one of the pioneer songleaders.

If I sing well, I could see their eyes filled with admiration to me.
Nevertheless, If I don’t do well, their face would show discontentment or contempt.

And that was the one I hated the most, because on the first place, I was not singing to perform. I sing to the Lord because I worship and praise Him. When I sing, I want to sing to the Lord and not to the people.

I never understood the feelings of the songleaders before until I became one.
It’s burdensome to songlead because you are like Moses carrying a lot of people in your shoulder. Leading the congregation into worshipping the Lord is a spiritual and physical battle.

I decided to step down because I knew God did not call me in that office. My calling is different. I would only listen to my Shepherd’s voice and not the pastor’s request nor the people’s suggestion. I could sing; that is true. I have a good voice according to them. But if they would worship my way of singing or my voice or the songs that I sing, that’s a failure (already) of glorifying God. We must refuse to be an idol in whatever ways. Gone are the days that I sang worldly songs in singing contests to be accepted and appreciated. I used to do that in college days. I was receiving acceptance, admiration or appreciation, yet the void or emptiness was also increasing deep within my soul, and …that feeling of guilt and being lost. Those were the days gone by and forgotten. Secular music artists shared the same negative feelings if were not accepted by the crowd.

I know God has just prepared me for something great, that’s why He allowed me to experience things—both good and bad.

On June 30, 2022— I dreamt about myself among others preparing for a beauty pageant. Unlike modern beauty pageants, ours was much conservative because the criteria focused on showing our modesty. We needed to wear a gown which does not show much skin. The preparation was long which included practicing Q&A.
Also, we were taught how to smile, walk and pose. Every aspects were intricate. I can’t elaborate everything.

When it was my turn to present myself, I noticed a yellow green shoal on top of my left shoulder. It’s heavy which affected the way I walk. I felt uneasy or uncomfortable. At first, I didn’t see it because it was just hidden under my clothes—the reason they needed to wait on me because I needed time to remove it. (END of DREAM.)

WISDOM from the DREAM: At first, we couldn’t realize the cause of our uneasiness or anxiety or negative emotions, because they were not exposed yet. They were just hidden, maybe because we’re too busy that we didn’t notice them, or we didn’t care to find out because our attention were too focused on the outward things. But the moment we noticed them, we will ofcourse remove them. Burdens or heaviness delays us. It hinders, it causes pain and suffering. I have personal struggles in life and God is still dealing with me, molding me to the best shape a POTTER would want the CLAY to be. And I know He, our POTTER, is doing the same thing with you.

Please read the whole book of Esther in the Bible (old Testament) to learn how JESUS Christ is preparing us, His bride for His second coming. The beauty preparation is long and intricate. Yet, it’s worth the wait.

To God be the glory!

Down at Your feet / I worship You (cover)

(Recorded during our rehearsal for next Sunday’s church service/fellowship.)

At age 3 or 4 if I’m not mistaken, was the first time I heard these songs sang in the church and my father playing the keyboard.

I was just there on the pew playing or running around with other kids my age, but I’m a bit observant of the people while they are singing, dancing, raising their hands, clapping their hands and something crying. Sometimes I’m wondering, why some of them were crying. I didn’t know nor realized they were touch by the Holy Spirit because in those times I hadn’t met or known Jesus personally yet, though they were always talking about JESUS.

Knowing and having relationship with JESUS is a personal thing. He will come in if You let Him in, though He first draw near to You because He first know You.

To God be the glory!

Deliverance from Homosexuality

With men it is impossible, but with God through JESUS CHRIST’ blood shed on the cross, nothing is impossible!

Just sharing his testimony because I overwhelmingly am blessed by it, and I hope many others will be inspired or much willing to surrender their lives to JESUS, too.

If you are burdened and yoked with sins and don’t know how to get rid or get through it/them, just SURRENDER them all to JESUS and let HIM change/transform you.
