Missions Monday

Last week was crazy busy for me. I got to work in Eli's school two days last week and Lori was teaching in our YWAM Pismo Beach DTS. So last week I missed my Music Monday blogpost. But 6 out of 7 weeks isn't that bad. This week though, I thought I would switch it up and post a video that I saw on the YWAM facebook page.

We spent part of our morning praying for the countries in North Africa that God would use these times to bring more people into relationship with him through Jesus. We prayed this portion of Psalm 72 from The Message;

Because he rescues the poor at the first sign of need,
the destitute who have run out of luck.
He opens a place in his heart for the down-and-out,
he restores the wretched of the earth.
He frees them from tyranny and torture—
when they bleed, he bleeds;
when they die, he dies.

Please continue to pray for the people of Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Sudan and the surrounding areas.

Music Monday - Gungor - "God Is Not A White Man

I saw this video a couple weeks ago by the band Gungor. Michael Gungor leades the band, which use to be named "The Michael Gungor Band."

Gungor lives in Denver, Colorado with his wife and is a christian worship leader and singer/songwriter. It is here that they founded a community of believers called "Bloom."

I really like this song, one of the lines that he repeats is, "But God is love, God is love, and He loves everyone. God is love, God is love, and He loves everyone." This is something that I have really been trying to live out. That I would be able to be the type of Christian that displays God's love. Unfortunately, a lot of times the church does not do a very good job representing the love of God. There are the people from westboro baptist that are definitely not displaying the love of God, and it breaks my heart every time I see them on the news. I did just see a cool article about these veterans that are going to the same places as the westboro baptist protesters and blocking the grieving families from seeing them with their hateful signs. For that article click here.
