The latest from the desk of the Soul of Worship Ministry Team
For the last several years, God has been speaking to me about building out a team to help support the many branches of the Soul of Worship Ministry.
I am very zealous for the things of the LORD and I have been praying for God to make it super clear who would unite with me on this mission to empower a generation to release a sound of authentic worship.
After many confirmations, here are the powerful women of God that have so graciously united with me to expand the ministry!
Janice Colon-Crespo, My right-hand woman, Administrative Support, Manager of Creative Merchandise, and Blog Contributor!
Belen Toledo, new Manager of the Spanish Branch of the Ministry, Alma de Adoración, and Official Translator!
They’ve already been working behind the scenes and we can’t wait to see what God is going to do with our YES!
This is only the beginning!
Moving forward in Jesus' Name,
'Now Abraham and Sarah were old, well advanced in age; and Sarah had passed the age of childbearing. Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, “After I have grown old, shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?” And the LORD said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I surely bear a child, since I am old?’ Is anything too hard for the LORD? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.”'
How easy it is to preach faith and speak faith to others but how hard it is to apply that same faith to our own lives?
When God speaks huge things over us we get think, "Surely that was not for me. I'm too old, too young, too broken."
We easily convince ourselves it is impossible.
How easy to believe in our own strength and what we cannot do and doubt what HE can do!
Sarah, an old barren woman, literally laughed when God spoke she would have...
But I would be wrong if I didn't also make it clear that stillness before the LORD is worship, too.

Worshipful silence before the presence of God and in obedience to the Holy Spirit is a sign of humility, confident expectation, and submission to God's strategies.
Let's take a look at Jericho!
We often teach about Jericho to encourage the power of worship and praise since the walls came tumbling down after a holy shout from the people of Israel. (And this is still true!)
But before it was time for the shout, there was a lot of walking and waiting in confident silence.

“Now Joshua had commanded the people, saying, “You shall not shout or make any noise with your voice, nor shall a word proceed out of your mouth, until the day I say to you, ‘Shout!’ Then you shall...
And when you only have 15-20 minutes to yourself before another knock on the door comes, what do you do to make the most of your time?
Read the Word.
Worship is the quickest way to encounter God.
Psalm 22:3 says that God inhabits our praise.
Psalm 100:4 says to enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise.
So when we come before Him with words of worship for simply who God is, we swing wide the door to meet with God.
And that's truly just the beginning of what a soul of worship can unlock in your life.
A soul of worship can draw you so close to God, transforming you into the disciple, spouse, parent, and friend you've always desired to be.
If you'd like to learn more about the power of worship and praise, I created an online course with 12 easily digestible videos ranging from 15-30 minutes each that will take you through...
Are you looking for a way to reignite your faith and deepen your relationship with God?
If so, then please know that you're not alone, I know exactly how you feel, and I have a solution for you.
Even in the darkest moments and driest seasons of my life, God reminds me of the power of my sound.
"Just praise Me. Just worship Me. Just trust Me. Release your sound. Right here, right now. I am enthroned in your praise."
And every single time that I choose to worship instead of worry, I am met with the goodness of God.
As I've said many times before, I wholeheartedly believe that true worship is an underused weapon of spiritual warfare in the Church today.
We are called to express our reverence, adoration, love, admiration, and devotion of God through passionate words of prayer and song.
Yet so many of us never want to get to that place of deep devotion and then we wonder why we're not seeing the evidence of God in our...
Join us to fire up our breakfast and our spiritual walk.
It's time to ignite revival in your life and it starts with a posture of authentic worship and a sound of high praise.

Worship through song is a powerful way to experience the liberating, chain-breaking power of Almighty God.
If you know me for any time at all, you know this is a constant theme I speak about and live by - WORSHIP CHANGES THINGS!
While it can be easy to sing praises to God after a victory, we know that David often worshiped before, during, and after the battles that he faced.
Because of David's genuine and constant state of worship through prayer and praise, David experienced God's ground-shaking deliverances time and time again.
David wrote many songs of deliverance and in fact said in Psalm 32:7 that God would surround him with songs of deliverance.
Psalm 18 is one of the most powerful songs of deliverance sung by King David and is the longest Psalm of Book One.
It is also fully captured in 2 Samuel 22.
When God repeats Himself in Scripture, we ought to pay attention!
We broke down just the first half of this psalm in our online Bible study this...

6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?”
7 The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.”
8 Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.”9 And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked.
Such a simple question with so much meaning. This man was sick for 38 years and what was his response?
“I have no one to help me.”
At first, we can have compassion for a man that longed to be made well but didn't have anyone to carry him to the place where healing could take place.
There are times in our life...
We discussed during our Online Bible Study last night that David's worship through prayer and praise pleased God, because David expressed complete trust and confidence in the LORD, no matter what he was going through.
David had faith to TRUST God to fulfill His Word.
And David had faith to TRUST God's character.
David wrote in Psalm 9 verse 10,
"And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You."
When we break this verse down, we can conclude the following:
1. Because I know God and He knows me, I can have unwavering faith that He will never leave me nor forsake me.
2. Because I walk by faith, with purpose and in pursuit of His presence, I can put my complete trust in YHWH!
I can confidently trust in the totality of God's character - in everything that His Name represents!!
The Great I AM is reliable and totally trustworthy!
And when we...

So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.Luke 17:6
When Jesus spoke in Luke 17:6, His use of the mulberry tree is purposeful.
It is known for one specific characteristic: its vigorous root growth.
So, if you garden you know that trying to pull even a weed out can make you break a sweat to get it from the root, so imagine a mulberry tree, with its wide and deep, penetrating roots!
This means that Jesus was telling us that with faith as small as a mustard seed, I can uproot and move a mulberry tree!
Often, we get stuck in our own ways and say “that’s just the way I am, I can’t change” when in fact no, that is not how God created us.
We may have...
