Dedication to the Survivors of September 11th

I hope you will be encouraged by this song. I was not in your position to go through the deathly scare or lost someone I care about in that tragedy but God knows all that you go through. He is your Hope though some of you might find it hard to believe. I pray you will experience His unfailing love.


The world may fade
You will remain
In the midst of the trial
You will always be, I'll sing
Our God never fails
Our God never fails

With hope and light
You reign over all
Though my heart may fail
You will always be, I'll sing
Our God never fails
Our God never fails

Praise in the morning
Praise in the evening
Praise when I'm laughing
Praise when I'm grieving
There will be dancing
There will be singing

Upon injustice we will tell of our God

The hope of all hearts
The hope of all hearts Is you
Your love never fails
Your love never fails
With hope and light
You reign over all
Though my heart may fail
You will always be all the same
Our God never fails
Our God never fails

Praise in the morning
Praise in the evening
Praise when I'm laughing
Praise when I'm grieving
There will be dancing
There will be singing
Upon injustice we will tell of our god

The hope of all hearts
The hope of all hearts Is you
Your love never fails
Your love never fails

In darkness,
In trial, my soul shall sing
Of his mercy, and kindness
Our offering of praise
Our God never fails
Our God never fails

In darkness,
In trial, my soul shall sing
Of his mercy, and kindness
Our offering of praise
Our God never fails
Our God never fails

Psalm 71:20

I believe and I will always believe, no trouble will take me down in any abyss of darkness, because my Lord will always hold me, bring me to safe grounds. Thank you, Lord!

Worship Intensive by Darlene Zschech

This is a fantastic teaching by Worship Pastor of Hillsong Church, Darlene Zschech. The first time I heard the teaching, I quickly find a way to download the video to remind me the purpose of worship each time I feel like I am not able to. I hope it encourages and helps you walk closer with God in an intimate way through worship. Here is Part 1 and Part 2 of the teaching. My next post will be Part 3 and Part 4.

Staying On You

Isaiah 26:3 
3You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.

I found this verse to be so profound and it speaks of promises that no one can ever fulfill except the Lord Most High. Sometimes it is true that God will help those who help themselves first but never without giving the blueprint and a map (Bible). We just got to stay on track with Him and merciful as He always is, He will nudge and pull us back if we go off the wrong way. 

As He has written in Isaiah 26:3 , pay attention to the words perfect and constant peace then whose mind is stayed on You, commits, leans, and hopes confident. Sounds so perfect and human nature perpetually fails to meet near its requirements. But is it impossible? I believe not (though I struggle immensely in this area.)


God is saying it is possible that we can train ourselves to capture God's divine peace in times of turmoil, to stand on the pool of peace with faith like a little child. When I read the word commits, leans, hopes confident , it reminds me on a little baby or toddler who fears nothing and is in perfect peace when in the arms of his mother. Like the world would crumble and he would know no fear because he knows his mother will do all she can to guard (to protect), keep him in perfect peace( away from harm).

Remind yourself of His promises each morning, memorize and keep it close to your heart.
