Jackie’s Line Up: March 16, 2014

While perusing through Facebook this week I saw a post that reminded me of “Oceans.” As I remembered it, I played the song and just started meditating on the lyrics…the whole song is compelling, but the part that most resonated with me was this: “Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders, let me walk upon the waters, wherever you would call me. Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander, and my faith will be make stronger, in the presence of my Savior.”
Trusting and following God on that level is not at easy task. It’s challenging when I lose focus and, like Peter, start to sink in the water. Although Jesus is there, my faith sometimes wavers because I forget who my God is and what he’s so capable of. It’s such a blessing to have moments to reflect on the past and realize that my God deserves better – my full and undivided focus and faith in Him.
One time we had a guest comment about the songs sung by the modern church. He felt they were too personal, too individually minded for corporate worship. Bro. Aggie made an interesting point. He said that it’s also good to sing songs about what we’re aspiring to be/hope to be someday. I feel like “Oceans” is that for me, I want to be the version of Peter that has grown from his sinking days and has learned how to fully trust, the way God deserves.

Matthew 14: 22-33 22 Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. 23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, 24 and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.
25 Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.

27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”

29 “Come,” he said.

Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
32 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. 33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”

Jackie’s Line Up: January 19, 2014

Hope all of you are doing well this beautiful week! It’s been so warm outside I barely know what season we’re in.  🙂 Enjoying it for sure!

Before I list out our lineup, I’d just like to share some verses I read this morning:


Matthew 6

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[e]?




28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.


If you don’t know this about me, I’m actually a very anxious person. I try to be relaxed and at peace, but I’ve always struggled with over thinking and worrying. Funny thing is, I think it just makes my anxiety worse, which is why I’m so thankful for Matthew and his reminder that God is always in control and will provide. He knows our needs before we need them, so why bother dwelling on it? With this in mind, I thought a lot about trust in God, faith, peace and just the patience to allow things to unfold just as God wills them. I’m praying for peace for all of you too. 🙂

Jackie’s Line Up: November 17, 2013

While working on this this lineup I have been drawn to the image of our arms open wide, lifted high, surrendered to God. This action is important because it symbolically shows obedience and a yearning to connect to Him. In the wake of horrific moments in our world, like the Typhoon that has destroyed many areas of the Philippines, this action is that much more powerful because only God can help us to make sense of tragedy and heal the hurt such events cause. Make no mistake about it, we are never really in control, but we have a God who is and we can truly rest when with Him. So, with our arms open wide, let’s worship our God this Sunday. Also, let’s pray for the PI and those effected by this major disaster.

Thank you God that you always know us and what we need. Help us to honor and glorify you first and always…

Excerpt from Psalm 139

You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.   Here’s our lineup for the week  🙂

Jackie’s Line Up: September 1, 2013

Something I’ve been dwelling on lately is the consistency and unchanging nature of God (also known as immutability). Because of God’s perfect nature, he can’t change because it’s not possible for him to improve or diminish in any way. For that reason, God is constant in all aspects, including our relationship with Him. He is unchanging in his love to us and for that I’m really thankful. Even in our shaky moments or when we struggle to be consistent in our walk, God is there, ever committed to our relationship. It’s comforting to know we have  a reliable and loving God 🙂


Here’s our lineup for the week:
