Mia’s Line Up: March 24, 2017

As I was preparing the lineup for this Sunday the Lord really spoke to me about the importance of rest. As we go through our busy schedules each day, we often forget to pause and take a moment to rest. I’m very guilty of that because I often find myself juggling a lot of things at once and get easily overwhelmed. Eventually, we get burnt out or exhausted from the things we are called to do and be a part of whether it’s in church, school, work, and other responsibilities.
28-30 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” -Matthew 11:28-30 MSG

In the passage, Jesus reminds us that we cannot find the truest kind of peace anywhere else but through Him and in His presence. There are many mentions in the word of Jesus resting in the midst of the chaos going on around Him, and it speaks volumes of the kind of peace that Jesus he possesses. He invites us to go to Him and that itself a promise that He will take care of our worries, our fears and all our doubts. In His presence do we really learn how to rest. Jesus even reassures us that He would never give us anything we cannot handle because He intends to teach us how to live in such a way that reflects our salvation and His grace.

I pray that despite our very busy schedules, that we learn to stop and sit at His feet to rest because there’s truly no other place more peaceful than in His embrace.

 “No place I’d rather be than here in Your love.”

Here are the songs for this coming Sunday 🙂

Mia’s Line Up: February 5, 2017

This week I was reading a devotional about pursuing Christ and it led me to this passage from Ephesians. It really got me thinking about my relationship with Christ and how it’s so important to be committed when pursuing a relationship with Him.

It started with Him. Because HE FIRST LOVED US. He pursued us first. He was with us even before we knew Him. The more we pursue Him, the more we realize that we can never do it on our own. The more we pursue His heart, the more He reveals to us who we really are. And the more we rely on Him and His word, the more He is glorified through the way we live. My prayer for us is that we always have a heart that seeks Him, longs for Him, and worships Him through different seasons. I pray that we clear our hearts and our minds of any idols and any unnecessary things that distract us from truly worshipping Him.

Ephesians 1:11-19 (MSG)

11-12 It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.

13-14 It’s in Christ that you, once you heard the truth and believed it (this Message of your salvation), found yourselves home free—signed, sealed, and delivered by the Holy Spirit. This signet from God is the first installment on what’s coming, a reminder that we’ll get everything God has planned for us, a praising and glorious life.

15-19 That’s why, when I heard of the solid trust you have in the Master Jesus and your outpouring of love to all the followers of Jesus, I couldn’t stop thanking God for you—every time I prayed, I’d think of you and give thanks. But I do more than thank. I ask—ask the God of our Master, Jesus Christ, the God of glory—to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for his followers, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him—endless energy, boundless strength!

***This past week I also got sick so I don’t fully have my voice to sing. So can I ask for help from my back-up singers if you could lead some  of the songs? My cough is pretty bad and I don’t think my voice can last if I lead all the songs. I would really appreciate it if you could help me out with that. 🙂 ***

Also, please keep my grandma (my dad’s mom) in your prayers. She is currently being monitored in the ICU after experiencing a mild stroke. She’s now able to eat on her own but cannot verbally respond so much.

Lastly, my heart also goes out to Tita Claudette and her family. We’re keeping you in our thoughts and prayers <3

Here I am to Worship

What a Beautiful Name

Mia’s Line Up: January 22, 2017

Hi everyone!

Hope you’re all doing well 🙂

I know we’re already almost a month in the new year but I can’t help but reflect on what the Lord taught me and showed me through the challenging situations last year. 2016 was a year full of trials, heartache and confusion, and in those moments it’s hard to understand and see what He’s doing in our lives but that’s really where our faith steps in and He reminds us of that secret place that we can go to when we feel lost.

The more time we spend in that secret place and the more time we spend in His word, the more we understand who God is in our lives and on top of that, we become more joyful and more hopeful even when we encounter obstacles. And It’s that kind of joy and hope that allows us to look past our struggles and mistakes, turning our worries into adoration of His goodness and grace.

I recently started reading C.S. Lewis’ “Mere Christianity” alongside a devotional based on his different books. In one of the devotionals, it talks about joy not being a “satisfied desire” but rather an “unsatisfied desire”. It is more than just a feeling of happiness because it is this deep longing for the Lord and His heart, who is the only one who can satisfy our hearts. I came across this passage in the book and most of you have probably heard this during one of pastor’s sermons, “If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world”.

There is truly no one like Him and I pray that we continue to seek Him more and more everyday. I pray that we carry hope and joy with us this year and for the rest of our lives, regardless of whatever comes our way.
