    Good Neighbors from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being a good neighbor. Ever since Adam and Eve had kids and one killed the other, it has been an ongoing thing, learning to live with one another. Most of the ten commandments are about how we tr...

    When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me. My strength was sapped in the heat of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn't hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, and you forgave t...

Shout To The Lord

  • Sing to Yahweh a new song! Sing to Yahweh, all the earth. Sing to Yahweh! Bless his name! Proclaim his salvation from day to day! Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples. Psalms 96:1 WEB

    I was so nervous when I took the microphone. At our church, the singers in our praise and worship team had failed to show up, and the rest elected me to lead them in praise that day. I did not want to. So I got somewhere quiet, prayed, and I heard the Lord tell me this very clearly. It put me in tears, and it changed the way that I look at singing praise songs from that day forth. He told me:

    'If one of your children came to you with tears in their eyes, and told you how much they loved you, and thanked you for all that you have done for them, would you care what their voice sounded like, or if they pronounced every thing correctly?'

    I said 'No.'

    Then He said 'Neither do I care what you sound like. It is why you do it.'

    David was a praiser and God loved him. Even Jesus and the disciples sang hymns together (Mark 14:26). The Lord does not care what you sound like. So lift up your voice and sing praises to Him, and you will see great rewards in your life. Chains will be broken and depression will flee. It is not how, but why. There is something about parents that love to see their children sing, and our Heavenly Father is no different. Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4).

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You today and ask that You set me free from the fear of man. Let Your praise rise up inside of me and bubble over. I praise Your wonderful name and I am so thankful to know You, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen and Amen!!! Shout to the Lord with all your heart and soul, Amen and Amen!!!  My goodness, when I think back how shy I used to be, how often I'd blush, had long hair trying to hide my red cheeks, etc...  But the Lord changed me from the inside out, for: "We are fearfully and wonderfully made ...", and that includes me!!! Praise His holy name!!!
