The new Daily Devotions with Soul of Worship Ministry Facebook Group!

For quite some time now, the LORD has been nudging me to start some type of "Daily Devotions" but I have to admit that I was afraid of the daily commitment. After all, I'm a wife, homeschooling mom of 2 and now a puppy mom. Not to mention all of the ministerial responsibilities I hold at our local church.

"Teach them how to worship," I'd hear the Holy Spirit say.

"LORD, I already do a weekly Bible study on worship and work daily on supporting the Soul of Worship Ministry. What else do you want me to do?"

"Show up daily."

After much prayer, and wrestling with the LORD, I feel like I've gotten the download on how to start this Daily Devotions initiative.

In full transparency, I was originally looking at building a networking area within my website. BUT, it was too complicated and I think I was overthinking it. After spending all this time building something new, will people login daily to my website?

Are You Struggling to Implement a Gratitude Practice?

I recently spoke with Carlisle Russell from FaithGateway about practicing gratitude as a Christian, the struggles we commonly face, and how to take actionable steps to add gratitude to your daily Christian walk.

In this 20 minute discussion, we answered the following community questions:

  1. What does it look like to live a life of thankfulness in your heart to God?
  2. As you consider God, what are 3 aspects of His character that make you thankful?
  3. Why is gratitude an important quality in your Christian life?
  4. What does gratitude look like outside of the home? For example at work or outside in the community?
  5. How can we explain gratitude to our children? 
  6. In what ways do you struggle to be thankful?

How do you incorporate gratitude into your worship?

gratitude worship Sep 12, 2023

This week, the Soul of Worship Ministry is collaborating with FaithGateway, on The Gratitude Project

In the reel above, I was asked to share my own experience with how gratitude changes everything in prayer and worship. 

Yet, there's only so much time Instagram allows you for a reel, so let's go a little deeper on this question:

How Do You Incorporate Gratitude Into Your Worship?

Psalm 95:2 says:

“Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.”

Sometimes we feel like God’s presence is so far away or unattainable but in fact God reveals the key in His Word for how to enter into His presence. The key is found in our thanksgiving, the sacrifice of our joyful praise.

I heard someone say recently, “If you have 10 minutes to pray, spend the first 8 minutes in...

What is the purpose of a war song?

Now, you all know that I love to declare, "Worship is my warfare!".

So in last night's online Bible study Zoom class, we unpacked the purpose and power behind a war song.

A war song is also known as a battle hymn or a warrior's cry. It is a call to arms.

Battle hymns have been used since Biblical times and through our recent era. I asked my husband, who is a history buff, about his thoughts regarding the intention behind war-time songs and military bands and we came up with the following 3 main purposes:

1. War songs raise morale and bolster the spirits of soldiers going into battle. The song reminds them of their purpose and reason for fighting.

2. War songs inspire, comfort, bring confidence, and unify the entire army. 

3. War songs are tactical & strategic. When everyone is marching to the same cadence (rhythmic flow of sounds), the army can advance quickly, effectively, and predictably. 

As it is in the natural, so shall it be in the...

A Hymn for Palm Sunday 🌿

palm sunday worship Apr 02, 2023

On this Palm Sunday, I want to share with you the lyrics of this beautiful hymn, "All Glory, Laud and Honor" written by Theodulph of Orleans circa 820.

As you read through, meditate on these powerful words and vow to raise your melody and sweet hosanna!

All glory, laud and honor, to Thee, Redeemer, King,
To Whom the lips of children made sweet hosannas ring.

Thou art the King of Israel, Thou David's royal Son,
Who in the Lord's name comest, the King and Blessed One.

The company of angels are praising Thee on high,
And we with all creation in chorus make reply.

The people of the Hebrews with psalms before Thee went;
Our prayer and praise and anthems before Thee we present.

To Thee, before Thy passion, they sang their hymns of praise;
To Thee now high exalted, our melody we raise.

Thou didst accept their praises, accept the prayers we bring,
Who in all good delightest, Thou good and gracious King.


Isn't that beautiful?

Keep making a sound,

David's Great Song of Deliverance - Part 1

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.

But Psalm 18 is something special.

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...

The Walk of Faith - And Why It Doesn't Have to be So Scary!

bible study psalms worship Dec 13, 2022

Hebrews 11:6 states that without faith it is impossible to please God.

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...

Is Passionate Worship Your Standard?

Wow, what a Bible study we had last night!

As we dissected verse by verse of the second half of Psalm 3, we uncovered so many keys to unlocking the power of God.

The first thing we talked about last night in our Zoom discussion is found in Psalm 3:4 which says:

I cried to the Lord with my voice,

And He heard me from His holy hill.


This verse gives us a glimpse into the way that David worshiped God through prayer and praise: DAVID CRIED OUT TO THE LORD WITH HIS VOICE!

This was not a silent prayer or passive song.


The MSG translation says, "With all my might I shout up to God..."

David let out a MIGHTY SHOUT!


And this moment of worship wasn't an exception.

David always worshiped God with EVERYTHING that he had.

Come, let us worship and bow down!

praise psalms worship Nov 11, 2022

"Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker." Psalms 95:6

In this one verse, there are 3 unique Hebrew words used to describe this invitation to worship the LORD our Maker.

worship = shâchâh = to depress, to bow down, or to fall down flat.
bow down = kâraʻ = to bend the knee; to sink, to prostrate
kneel = bârak = to bless God; to bow down and kneel in humble reverence

This verse alone is a picture of humility before Yahweh.

It is meant to inspire us as worshipers to bring ourselves low before God, not just physically bowing down but humbling ourselves before Him.

Bending down shows reverence, expresses honor, submission, and allegiance to His high authority.

We bow down because there is no greater or more powerful being and He is worthy of our complete surrender.

So come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker!
