It's not in Vain....

you may never know the real affect that you have on people. Your smile, your touch, your words, your song, or your cards are just the thing that causes someone somewhere to experience love and compassion that sustains life for them. DO not count it lightly because a life saved is a soul saved. I encourage you to continue to love out loud and to be the best you that we've ever seen. It's not in vain!

Leave it....leave it!

The reason why you left that (whatever your that is) in the first place was because it was not the right fit for you. You endured that place for such a long time and experienced all of the joys that would come from it. It was your manna at the time that you needed manna. You were covered and sheltered there because you were not ready for where you are headed now. OK, so now that we've confessed that truth...pull your hands back and take your eyes off of what you've just left....you cannot go back and you are not permitted to touch it. Comfort, convenience and mediocrity are all behind you. Where you are going is full of stretching, pulling, revealing, uncovering, truth, purpose, and meaning.....Where you were had a purpose when you were there, now its time to move out allow the gift and calling in you to be guided and directed by the spirit into this new place ordained for your life by God. (this is by no means an encouragement to abandon a covenant relationship ie..marriage) but a provocation to progress into your divine destiny by getting up from the table of spoon fed dining into a place of servanthood whereby all the spiritual food you have received is beginning to be shared and used to disciple others....Soulworshipers begat SoulWorshipers!!!

Onward!

Right Now.....

Luke 15:11 tells the story of the prodigal son who left home with the portion of good that belonged to him....while out in the world he squandered his wealth and ended up with nothing in hand....His misfortune convinced him to go into places he would have never thought to go and to compromise his principles....but when what he had already knew inside his heart was quickened, he returned to the place of rest, safety and promise.....HOME! Thank Goodness we can always come back home to the place of our Calling, our anointing, peace, joy, strength, faith, and life...and upon the return all benefits apply to you once again....Truth is, you never lost them...but just Come Home! God's awaiting your return with open arms, a robe of distinction, a ring of authority, the shoes of a son, and the feast to celebrate....Come Home!

Building Stronger Marriages: Principle #1

Be Careful in choosing Relationships

It is really easy to become familiar with someone else who is not your spouse. Resist the urge to spend time flirting with other people. This is a door that if opened might cause u to look at alternatives to your own marriage should things get shaky and rough. You may think that now there is an escape route for you and lose the willingness to resolve. Guard this area and keep that door close. In addition, these types of relationships will cause your spouse to feel threatened. Protect your Marriage, and enjoy your life together.

More to Come.....

My Summary is......

Headed out to church and remembering the mercies of God. This year is almost over and I can't help but thank Him for all of the tests and trials He brought me through. I had many opportunities to learn from each one and there were some habits that He helped me to break. My summary is that God is faithful in all things He has spoken. He never fails to amaze me and His love is amazing. I Love Him.

Just a Test....You were Made for it.

You have already been through enough to stand this test. Tests only come to extract from you what was already placed inside you. They prove what you already know. Be confident in the Word, Truth, Experience, and God in You and Stand. It's not on you to kill you, but to reaffirm that you are an Overcomer. Go Through.

Cause it's your right......

You do not have to leave the door open of your life to negative attitudes, pessimistic thinking, and murmuring and complaining about everything all the time. It's your God given right to live a life free from sin and full of joy. Peace belongs to you simply because you meditate upon the Lord. Happiness is a gift that has been already given you. Just open the gift.

I'm Pushing to Get There....

"Not as though I have already obtain or arrived....however there is one thing I am committed to...forgetting what's behind me which is not profitable for growth...and looking ahead to what lies in front of me in my purpose and destiny....I push with all might relentlessly towards the goal of becoming what I was made to be and completing my assignment of life." -Inspired by Philipians 3:13 (SoulWorshiper)

Just Get Help!

If you've been wondering aimlessly and feeling as if you do not know what to do next. If depression is at your door and you are having feelings of deep hurt and unable to cope with the stress of your pains. If you are crying more than you are smiling lately, and if you would have rather stayed in bed this week than face the day. It is sincerely time that you get some help and right away. You cannot handle this type of emotional and mental attack alone. There are sincere compassionate people ready to share in prayer, and to intervene on your behalf. You are not alone, please take a moment and pick up the phone and call your pastor, your best friend, your prayer partner, a co-worker, a counselor, someone. If you have no clue who to call, Jesus is always a prayer away, and your heart is already primed and ready to call on Him. he will not turn you away but will answer you today. Jesus says in Matthew 11:28, "Come to me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest." He is your way out. Do it now. I am praying for you right now. You Are Not ALONE! :-)

"The Day's of Elijah" - Donnie McClurkin



"The Day's of Elijah" - Donnie McClurkin

Lyrics:
These are the days of Elijah
Declaring the Word of the Lord, yes
And these are the days of his servant, Moses
Righteousness being restored
And these are the days of great trial
Of famine and darkness and sword
So we are the voice in the desert crying
Prepare ye the way of the Lord

CHORUS:
Behold he comes
Riding on a cloud
Shining like the sun
At the trumpet's call
Lift your voice
It's the year of jubilee
Out of Zion 'till salvation comes

And these are the days of Ezekiel
With dry bones becoming as flesh
And these are the days of his servant, David
Building the temple of praise, yes
And these are the days of the harvest
The fields are all white in the world
And we are the laborers that are in your vineyard
declaring the word of the Lord

CHORUS 2X
Behold he comes
Riding on a cloud
Shining like the sun
At the trumpet's call
Lift your voice
It's the year of jubilee
Out of Zion 'till salvation comes

There's no God like Jehovah (x8--modulate)
There's no God like Jehovah (x8--modulate)
There's no God like Jehovah (x7)

CHORUS X2

I Just Wanna Be A Better Me...

There are so many things that I might name that prove to the world how far from perfect I am. Yet the strengths in my life are the ones that you will see me spend most of my time developing and displaying. There is very little time available for us to continue to mope and complain about what we have not accomplished or what we have not learned to do. None of this is important as it relates to our right now and our future. Or shall I say none of this should have any influence on whether or not we wake up in the morning pleased and content to be alive, and blessed with another opportunity to grow. Daily God loads us up with blessings that insure our future is much brighter than our past. This fact does not exclude anyone anywhere. Additionally, God takes great care to provide us each with our own individual grace and mercy, love and joy. I need not wait for you to smile and decide to chose happiness today, in order for me to look pass my past, and maybe even present circumstances as I lay hold to the promise and covenant of a prosperous and established future. Therefore to sum it all up, I am very much content to just be me, and to walk freely in purpose and into destiny. You coming?

He's Got You Covered!

He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
-Isaiah 40:29 (God's got you Covered)

Your trials and tests are no match for the God of all creation. He Himself is in control of the moves of the universe. Trust Him even in this one, and remember that your lack of strength and power demands that your posture be changed and your eyes be turned towards His Face.

It May Be True...But Don't Let it Be You.....

Look, the times we're living in are full of compromise and moral decay. There remaineth little regard for anything sacred and holy these days. We are living in a feel good, do your thang society and seemingly anything goes. This is the time and you are the vessel that can stand out and stand up to make a difference. Infidelity, sexual perversion, unconcern, disregard for Godly order and self control, and dishonesty in business do not have to be present in the way we live our lives. There is a day of reckoning and a time of judgment coming for all such activity. Today, right now, is the time to stand taller and hold fast to the truth of God's Word regarding such things spoken above. You are charged with being an example to other believers and a light to the unbeliever. God is watching but they are as well. You are responsible for the souls that you are in direct contact with. Do not hold the truth in secret. Let your light so shine before men...and show them your good works so that the Lord may be glorified, lifted up, acknowledged, praised, and worshiped here in the earth. Let none of these ungodly ways be named among u. Turn if u need to...and do it today. The moral well being of this world depends on it.

II Timothy 3

What is SoulWorship?

Soulworship by my definition is "the dialogue of relational praise." It is the language spoken and the conversation engaged in between a soul that thirsts and hungers for God in a real way. It is the discourse of a heart that is not satifsfied with mere outward displays of gratitude and praise after receiving, but the inner love and overflowing joy from the thought of giving to the master giver. We praise for what is done...we worship who it is done by....

-SoulWorshiper

He's Got it All Planned Out.....

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
-Jeremiah 29:11

God has not forgotten you nor the plans and destiny set for your life. He never begins a thing without it already been established and fully qualified with an end in mind. Hold fast thru these times of testing and endure as a good soldier. The promise is sure and you will see the end if you faint not. It gets greater later, I think it's about 30 min to later! :)

"All the Power You Need (He's Real)" - by Hillsong

My God can never fail
He's beem proved time and again
Trust Him you'll see
he's got all the power you need

He's never early never late
It takes courage and it takes faith
Trust Him you'll see he's got
All the power you need

He saves forgives and heals
He takes back what the devil steals
My debt's paid in full
And every day He does miracles

God dreams turn them into plans
Too big for human hands
Trust Him you'll see
He's got all the power you need

He's real He's real
Faith's a lot stronger than what you feel
He's real He's real
I'm believing for miracles

Trust Him you'll see
He's got all the power you need

Come Now is the Time To Worship - Video & Lyrics



Come, now is the time to worship
Come, now is the time to give your heart
Come, just as you are to worship
Come, just as you are before your God
Come

One day every tongue will confess You are God
One day every knee will bow
Still, the greates treasure remains for those
Who glady choose You now

Your Time!

This is your hour, this is your stage, all eyes on you, lights ablaze...what will you do... cause when the curtains close...it's your performance that determine the direction you'll go. (feel me?) -Hebrews 9:27

You have got an awesome platform that puts you in a position to make a difference and a profound impact on the lives of many. It is God ordained and divinely purposed. Refuse to ignore this influence that is your tool to be a light and a witness to souls. God has charged you to stir, and provoke change. And when the lights go off, be sure that you yourself have not played to role of life saver only to end up a cast-away yourself. Stay in the ship.

Lift Your Head....

But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head. -Psalm 3:3 (In the midst of fiery arrows and darts, you cover me, and cause me to walk and stand tall, with the confidence of a champion - SoulWorshiper)

Hear My Cry Oh God...

Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. - Psalm 61

Lord, today (this day) I thank you for paying attention to the pleas and cries of your people. We are people who hunger and thirst for you in this dry place. We long to know your presence in a real way. We ask of you to show us your glory, and to see your glory we humble ourselves and shed the fleshly and carnal attitude we've carried for so long. We have tried our way and have failed so many times. You and you alone can fill the void in our lives. We are empty and lifeless without you oh God. We cry unto you now to heal our hearts and to cause us to know your love, peace and joy. We have forsaken the the ways of this world, cause we hunger more for you. Forgive us now and restore unto us the joy of thy salvation. We thank you for always being our covering and protection, and giving us the miracle of life and restoration. We receive your healing, strength, love, peace, and joy. Thank you Lord.

The Roman Road to Salvation


The Roman Road is a group of Bible verses from the book of Romans in the New Testament. If you walk down this road you will end up understanding how to be saved from your sins by Jesus Christ.

Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."

We all have sin in our hearts. We all were born with sin. We were born under the power of sin's control. Admit that you are a sinner.

Romans 6:23a "...The wages of sin is death..."

Sin has an ending. It results in death. We all face physical death, which is a result of sin. But a worse death is spiritual death that alienates us from God, and will last for all eternity. The Bible teaches that there is a place called the Lake of Fire where lost people will be in torment forever. It is the place where people who are spiritually dead will remain. Understand that you deserve death for your sin.

Romans 6:23b "...But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

When Jesus died on the cross He paid sin's penalty. He paid the price for all sin, and when He took all the sins of the world on Himself on the cross, He bought us out of slavery to sin and death! The only condition is that we believe in Him and what He has done for us, understanding that we are now joined with Him, and that He is our life. He did all this because He loved us and gave Himself for us!

Give your life to God... His love poured out in Jesus on the cross is your only hope to have forgiveness and change. His love bought you out of being a slave to sin. His love is what saves you, not religion, or church membership. God loves you!
Romans 10:13 "Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved!"

Call out to God in the name of Jesus!

Romans 10:9,10 "...If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation."

If you know that God is knocking on your heart's door, ask Him to come into your heart.

Jesus said, Revelation 3:20a "Behold I stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him..."

Is Jesus knocking on your heart's door?

Believe in Him. Ask Him to come in to your heart by faith, and ask Him to reveal Himself to you. Open the Bible to the Gospel of John and read what God says about Jesus, about you, and about being born again. God will help you. He loves you.

You need to look for a local church where God's word is preached. The Bible says that we are to desire God's word like a newborn baby desires mother's milk. Aren't you hungry to know the truth?

Water baptism is one of the ways you first show that you have been joined to Jesus. This is an action, and actions will not save you. However, it is an act of obedience and a symbol of commitment.

The symbolism is this: When you go down in the water you show that You have been crucified and buried with Him, And when you come up out of the water you show that you have been raised to walk with Him in newness of life. (See Romans chapter 6)

You have been born again.
(See John chapter 3)

Your body has become God's temple. Your heart is where He lives. Forgiveness is yours in Jesus. And you belong to Him.

You were sin's slave. But now you are a child of GOD!

John 1:12 "As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name!"

Mirror Mirror on the Wall.....

So here we are again, another year vastly coming to a close. We have had some wonderful and equally challenging experiences. We have made some changes, and at the same time some things just never seem to change in us. We have the wonderful opportunity to reevaluate everything that we do in our lives and access whether or not the Lord is first place. Are our priorities inline with what the Father desires. have we been diligent to acknowledge Him in all of our ways. It's a blessing to take a look in the mirror and to behold the real image that is reflected, and then hold fast to the truth of what u see. IT is an even greater miracle when u take the time to confess what is not beautiful about your living, and then humbly submit your way(s) to the Lord. He takes it from there as He cleanses us and forgives us and directs our paths into purpose and destiny. So, "Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Signs of Pending Marital Disaster!!!!!

If You are ready for help NOW, click the image below.




Do you find yourself frustrated with your marriage, trying to make changes, only to find you are right back into the same old pattern?

Do you or your spouse frequently think about getting out of the marriage?

Are you and your spouse frequently engaged in an argument, often about nothing of importance, and find that there are rarely solutions?

Do you find yourself shocked that you were ever attracted to someone so different? Or conversely, do you think the big problem is that you are just too much alike for it to work?

Do you frequently find yourself feeling either unloved or disrespected?

Do you wonder how or if this crazy cycle can ever be ended?

Would you love to find a solution to these problems that would move your relationship to a healthy, Godly place?

Divorce and broken marriages is not God’s plan. God’s plan was for marriage to be a lifetime. As I’m sure you have heard often, in Genesis 2:24, God tells us that “for this reason, a man will leave his father and mother and be united with his wife. And the two people will become one body.” When we become one body, it is a forever thing.

Where is your relationship? Is it where you want it to be? Is it where your spouse wants it to be? Is it where God wants it to be?

Are you ready to have a different marriage? Are you ready to take the pieces God has given you and put them together in ways that God would want? God does not want division and pain, but love and support in your family.

What's in you....has got to come out!

During this holiday season there will definitely be many that will feel so alone, and sulk in the realities that they presently face. What an opportunity to share the Love of God, and embrace the chance to show someone how much God really cares, and how much you do as well. The times we are all enduring are providing such a platform for reevaluating what is really important in life, and how precious each day is. Refuse to allow yourself to get caught up in the monetary and material pursuits that have painted the season in years past. This is a brand new day and a time of refreshing for us all. Use this time to bring a cool glass of water in the form of reaching out and loving on someone who could really use a hug. You've got ministry in you, let's get it out now.

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

This is the End of this ROAD....Let's Get off now.

okay...I guess I feel compelled to share this principle once more. Noone can and will ever be able to do for you what you can do for you. You alone have been equipped to make the necessary changes in your life. Consider every experience and circumstance strong encouragement and motivation to step out, move out, go forth, and get started on living the life promised to by God! It is a promise not a secluded option for a select few. If you have surrendered your life to the Lord, you have the right to ask of your Father, and trust Him totally for peace, strength, joy, and prosperity. He Himself took the necessary abuse that provided u and I the ability to live a life of health and wealth. Ask! don't whine, don't weep, don't beg, don't plea......ASK!!!! Then as you ask and believe, recommit your life to Him Totally...It's the recipe for Ultimate Living!

You Make Him Smile

You are the one God thinks about all the time, and you always seem to be on His mind. Today, don't hesitate to ask for what you need from Him.

Give it up Now!

Give it to Jesus and don't look back. The very reason you are giving it to Him is because you cannot do anything with it, and He alone can fix it. Do not allow the truth of your morality and human limitation discourage your will to press on. Jesus already promised that he'd never leave or forsake you. Refuse to allow your natural to live void of God's supernatural. We need Him, and we need Him every hour of the day. Turn it over to Jesus, cause He can work it out. Now Rest!

Not Even on My Best Days..

Though it appear that I am and my countenance might even slightly look void of flaw at times (bare with me please :-) )....On my best days, I'm nothing more than filthy rags..So therefore I hide behind the cross of calvary and under the precious shed blood of Jesus Christ. It's because of His death burial and resurrection that I am the righteousness of God. "Tell me where would I be, If not for your grace.."

The Promise....May not be here....

The Promise you were promised, may not be right here where u are now, but a promise is a sure delivered thing when it's promised by God. You can be certain that it's coming and it's possible that just up the road of time over that hill and or around that corner..it's waiting for you.
Be Encouraged, whatever that promise is that your heart, body, mind, soul is waiting on, God says it's yours. Now, with that said....position, posture, and praise are the things u must concern yourself with. Walk in truth, love, and holiness, and turn your eyes upon Him (position). Humble yourself before the mighty hand of God, and yield to His voice,. Allow your self to surrender completely to His Will, and prostrate yourself in submission before Him (posture). Then, with everything that is within you, give Him Glory and Honor, daily, hourly, and as often as you can. Find reasons and ways to acknowledge in everything (Praise).
Then Testify of His Goodness, at home, in the Market, in the Gym, at the Office, on the Campus, and in the Streets.....You'll be sure to find what you've been looking for.

It's In You Already!

I refuse to wait around and see how it all turns out. What's in me is seed and potential that provides me with all that I need to succeed. You see it's God given and spirit birthed and without investing in and working with the little He has already provided, I can never expect to see anything more coming my direction. He has measured out some Faith to me as well to be able to push pass my feelings and my visual vision. God promises to give increase and give me more when I prove the little He has placed in me already.



"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'

-Matthew 25:23

All Things in Jesus I Find

The search is over, and the quest has ended. In Jesus remaineth everything that I can ever need. He is the all sufficient one able to satisfy every desire and the inner most thirsts. For who and what shall bring me joy and peace when sorrow surrounds. Who can make me glad when sadness abounds. It is the truth of His greatness and wonder of His glory, and the power of His love, and the joy that enfolds His story. Jesus is more than enough, and all things I find in Him.
(Just a song and story from my heart)

How long have you been standing there...?

I confess that everyday brings countless moments of dialogue and chatter in my mind relating to things I should do, I could do, I might do, and I "must" do. So many things and people vying for my time and energy,from every direction. Sometimes not enough time to even make out what the real request is or in what direction I'm really being pulled in, but simply hearing the sound of persuasion causes me to miss the sound of the Father. In this quest for "securing" my future, in this movement to all that I can be. While everything around me is appearing to be shifting in various directions, what I seek to hear clearly, and know surely is the voice of Abba Father...(cause He Knows). I've taken the liberty to share my thoughts dream, wishes, hopes, ideas, hurts, pains, mistakes, disappointments, shames, victories, joys, excitements, and ambitions with those hat I see, but what i really want is to have a moment with my Daddy. What I find is that though the noise is loud, and the pressure appears great, He is greater and his voice is more pronounced and equipped with the authority to both move and calm the winds....As I sit and write at this moment, the winds have calmed down outside my window to a stillness....Just moments before starting this entry, I was awaken to violent surges outside my window. It appeared as if the entire building would be shaken from it's foundation. How articulate of the Lord to provide me with a visual illustration of His strength and power. He sees my concern, and knows my fears, and does not turn a deaf ear nor refuse to acknowledge my heart. He hears and responds, and says Peace.....because all along He's been standing near, watching, listening, and speaking back to me...

18. Never, Never say I told you so

19. Smell Good, when He comes home from work.

20. Do not openly correct him aloud while out at dinner with friends or family.

Get a grip on it.....

Snap out of it, and wake yourself up. You've may have just escaped a horrible and life debilitating situation, yet there remaineth nothing and noone who is worth giving up on purpose and destiny for. Charge forward by re affirming and re committing your whole heart mind and body to the plan of God for your life. The hold you had on it all may seem to have gotten somewhat slippery and loose...It's the friction of tests, and trials that give us the traction of experience and victory that will allow us to get a grip and stay connected. You are not as weak as you think you are. But a weapon in the hand that is unused will always render you the victim. I urge you to begin to use what you already have and hold fast to your profession. It's time to stand. Weapons Drawn!

Sisters.....10 Wonderful Ways to Express Your Love to Him - Part 1 (Take a Look)

Okay, yeah I know us brothers at times may have slighted you in the area of expressing our love creatively, but there is always more than one approach to getting what u want right. So I solicit to you that one way of sparking the expression of Love u desire in your life, and home is to be the initiator of such unselfish giving. You'll be surprised how much of an impact it will have in changing your life and bringing about the change you desire in your relationship. These are real simple, yet effective ways to make a difference. Give em a try.

1. After you use his car, fill the tank with gasoline.

2. Watch Him Work Out with Weights

3. Learn as much as you can about His Work

4. Make a tape recorded Love Letter for him

5. Fight the urge to call Him ten times a day...and win!

6. Leave his razors and tools alone

7. Decide that if he does a portion of the household chores that you
will not criticize the way he does them

8. Do not assume that all men are handy with tools. Do not expect him
to be able to do everything your father could. His father may have never
taught him how.

9. Purpose not to brag about your rich or smart relatives.

10. Never talk derogatorily or in bitterness to your children about your husband.

There are so much more that can be shared, just as you may have things you desire. In this quest to grow and to enjoy better marriages and relationships, I believe one of the most significant keys to it's success is unselfish giving to one another. That is all this is. Be willing to try and expect results. It's normally the small things that make the difference. Have fun and Enjoy.

It's All About YOU!


I'll bet you didn't realize that it's really all about you. Please allow me the opportunity to say this just this once...or at least until you get it...lol. What I mean is that though Christ took the time to die on the cross to redeem us back to the Father, and took all of the blows and hits, it was really all about rescuing you and me from the penalty of sin. He was not thinking about Himself on the cross. He was driven by obedience to the Father and the Father's desire to reconcile and restore YOU and me back to himself. Christ did all of the Work, but that work had it's purpose and motivation completely invested in YOU! So yes...in this case we can say....It's all about me!

He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?

They Don't Do Like That Anymore.....


The road I tread has been paved by so many before me. I am humbled by the sacrifice of those who took the time to labor unselfishly to reach a goal and obtain a prize that could not be bought with this world's currency. They were diligent to share all that they heard and had seen. They purposed to change the very course of their family's lives. I am a recipient of such unlimited and relentless pursuits. My gratitude is reflective in my attitude. I say thank you right now, and today to you ma'am and sir for being the examples I needed to anchor to during shaky times in my growing. It is still the teaching and training that you passed along that give me a strong foundation of which I can rely on in this failing hour void of models of integrity and strength. You taught me endurance, and reliance on the power of God's Word, Love, Spirit and Truth. I owe my life to what you were not afraid or stingy to share. You knew who you were and you know who you are. Thanks!

Yeah, but when are you gonna do it?

I love the way you keep saying I'm gonna do it, I really am. I mean it sounds so cool coming off of your lips. It is such a wonderful rhythmic melody to behold the promises you keep making to the world as if to appease us all. Are you scared that you really might not follow thru with what you want to do? Why do you keep confirming to us what it is that is coming in your future. You've been saying it for the last year. Whether we agree with you or not, it is really your decision not ours. If you really want this, and really feel this, then your talk is nothing but more delay. I double dog dare you to zip the lip and start doing what you keep saying that you will do. Not for me, him, her, or them. Your life, your breath, your strength, your days. Do it for you...and do it now. We'll all feel better seeing you in motion than to hear your constant utterance of intention....that is all...are you still here....get to it!


And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

Not Forgotten.....It's just a process...

This is not the time nor the place to give up or give in. You have not experienced anything that you have for nothing at all. There are things that you may have seen or endured in just the last 6 months alone that may have caused many to quit. Not you! I am standing with you even now and believing that as you take a deep breath and lift your eyes to the heavens one more time, that the strength you need will be yours. God has not brought you and kept you this far to refuse to hold you up in order for you to overcome. Stand strong Sister and Be still Brother. God has not forgotten you.

The Quickest Way to Peace.

So you've gotten to this point in your life and you seem to be spending more time fixing things than you are progressing. It's like you get one thing kinda moving and functioning to some degree of normality only to have this other thing over here to fall apart and go in complete disarray. You can barely remember when there was a day that you could call normal. Yet you know that there is a place and a point that you desire to get back to where you will smile a sigh of relief and literally exhale.

Be assured that the God who is unlimited in His ability to perform anything, and who is never bound by time and location watches over you and still purposes to bring you to a place of clarity of mind, spirit and body. The existence of frustration, turmoil, and obstacles, sometimes provides exactly what we need to lead us to His feet. At His feet we benefit from the joy that comes from a humbled God encounter. Run to Jesus...It's the only way to Peace!

11Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

We'll call you Key!

You are so wonderfully crafted, and equipped to be and make an impact in your family, community, job, circle of friends, and church. No one can do and be what you can. There is a place carved out especially and only for you, and to forsake this truth is to cause many who await your acceptance of it to go lacking. You hold the very key to the change someone is looking for. The very bridge that will allow a soul to rescued from death to life, is in your tongue and feet. Be willing to stand out and be the Women and men you were created to be. There is great beauty within you. Let it out, Let it breathe, and Let them see so they can Live. You're the Key!

You are the exception!

The life you live and the thing you do as you live it must be different than those around you who have not given their hearts to the Lord. It is Christ in u that makes the difference and causes men's heart to turn to Him.

"But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses."

Don't Miss the Gift..

Each day that we awaken with the blessing of new mercies is evident that God is in the gift giving business. There is a wonderful joy in recognizing the present moment as a gift of mercy from the Lord. Cliche' as it may sound, there are plenty who went to bed and never woke up. Thank God for the gift of Today! Make the best of it and make it count.

5 Steps to a Stronger, Loving, Lasting Marriage

5 Steps to a Stronger, Loving, Lasting Marriage
An Article Written by: Kenneth L. Martin Jr.
September 30, 2009

Marriage is a spiritual bonding and union that brings two hearts, and souls together, blending the thoughts, gifts, and passions of each to a wonderful melodious harmony. It is God's gift to mankind, though this thought is opposed by most of the society that we live in. With all of the negative stereotypes and oppositions to marriage, we often need to be reaffirmed and strengthened in our union to insure a lasting and loving life together. Today I offer 5 simple principles that have helped me and I believe will benefit you should you desire to maintain a healthy and happy relationship together.

1. Tell the Truth
It is very easy at times to avoid confrontation by withholding information from your spouse. This is not a good idea. Even though you may get an initial benefit of peace, later the dishonesty will manifest itself in frustration and possible feelings of isolation and misunderstanding. Ask God to soften your delivery, and to give you wisdom on how and when to speak the truth, but by all means be honest.

2. Date Him/Her
Just like you did when you first got together, it is imperative that you continue to spend time together just having fun and laughing. Do not allow the daily grind and rush to cause you to cease to look upon one another in the same loving and desiring way. Dating allows us to get out of the formailty and to just be ourselves. You get to see that smile and those dimples that attracted you. That way she walks, and the way he holds your hand. Make it fun and do it often.

3. Romance is Right
Write a letter, Send Flowers, Give a long hug, Kiss softly, Sing a song, take a walk, hold hands, give a massage, have a picnic, take a trip....and so on and so on...Don't let the fire die.

4. Don't be so predictable
If there is anything that can cause a marriage to go stale is predictability all the time. Sometimes, switch it up and do something that you haven't done before. Refuse to do the same thing over and over again, year in and year out. Surprise your mate with something new, maybe a gift, a trip, or just a night out. Pay attention to what they do and make a comment. Take notice of any changes and make a big deal out of it. Remember this is a life long journey…make it count.

5. Love the Lord thy God
Although I placed this at the end, I must say that this one is of upmost importance in all things. God provides the bridge that will get us over and hurdle or gulf of separation. As we grow together as a couple, it is necessary that we individually build on our relationship with the Lord. He will guide us in the stormy times and allow us to share the wonderful joys of the sunny occasions. He is the establisher of the marriage institute and our confession was made before Him. Trust Him to provide the peace, joy, and strength that will make our days together full and complete.

Got Darkness...Here's Light!

The darkness that now causes you to dimly see is the perfect opportunity for you to experience a real God miracle. God finds opportunity to display His glory in your life in dark times. He is in love with loving you and has promised to bring you to a place of clarity and light. There is purpose in every dark day, if nothing else but to experience the Light of God.

"The Lord is my light and my salvation....
so why should I be afraid...
The Lord protects me from danger....
so why should I tremble?

Your Pain is His Concern.....

You are not alone, for God walks beside you and is fully acquainted with the suffering that is your present reality. He is aware of your pain and His words declares that He will hear your cry and heal your hurt, pain, and wounds.....God Knows...He really Knows!

"He healeththe broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds."

Total and Complete Supremacy...



This song says it all, Here are the Lyrics.

Title: "Kings and Kingdoms"

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
There is Something About That Name
Master, Savior, Jesus
Like A Fragrance, After the Rain
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
Let All Heaven and Earth Proclaim
Kings, And Kingdoms, shall All Pass Away
But There's Something About That Name

We can be confident that everything that exalts itself
as great in this earth and in every realm, must stil fall subject
to the name of Jesus Christ. God has given Him a name above every name.
We have no need to fear any man, circumstance, illness, or situation.
Jesus is King and Lord of All

It's alright to stop and get it.....


I was driving today at lunch headed to this Thai place i found to get something to eat. And at least three different times while driving I witnessed individuals who had stopped their cars and gotten out to pick up something that had either flown out of their car or fell off. Whichever way it was, they were now taking their time to collect the things they had lost. They were not worried about those who were driving by and or who were waiting for them to hurry up and move. They had lost something important apparently, and felt the need to go and retrieve what was lost. After I had eaten, and on the way back to the office, I noticed the last car and the Holy Spirit quickened my understanding that often at the pace that we travel in while living, we may lose important principles, and practices through an open window or unsecured door. If we are not watchful and praying, we can become indifferent to the ways of God, and the principles of right living because of our honest quest to achieve, receive, and cleave to more and more of this worlds symbols of success. The Lord reminded me that His principles provide for success that carries over into eternity. Things like, honesty, truth, integrity, sharing, giving, Faithfulness, patience, and endurance. We get it back by daily immersion in the scriptures, prayer, and fellowship with bible believing, Christ loving brothers and Sisters. The pace may be somewhat fast, but it's ok to take a "brake" and get what may have gotten away.

I'm soo glad that.....

God gave us today....and extra excited to share with you in this special way. What a blessing to be able to give of ourselves, and to all our gifts to be enjoyed by someone else. The strength that you need, might be the strength I've received, and the joy I long for, may live in you so much more...So thank goodness that Christ has made us both free, to be absolutely, excellently all we can Be...

I am thankful and Grateful for YOU!

Live it everywhere......

Refuse the temptation to discuss issues of adult nature in front of your children that do not edify their young inmatured minds. I'll never forget the many times as a child I heard adults speaking about issues that I was unable to digest and did not know what to do with. They shape my opinions about people I had never met and caused me at times to react to those same people in a negative and disrespectful manner. I was only responding to what I had heard, and based on the notion that I was right to feel this way. Children are not able to discern everything from the eyes of a mature adult, we as parents, aunts and uncles must take careful concern to live a life of integrity and character and protect the ears and concience of our children. Give them a fair chance to live a life of respect, and love towards all mankind.

Friday, September 18, 2009

You can do it.....

Don't believe the hype. I know there are so many reasons to believe that your dreams are unable to be fulfilled. It is very easy to feel that way with all the pressures of life you might experience. You are not alone. Within you lies the ability, strength and purpose of which the Lord God has provided. He is the source, and because He is infinite in wisdom, power and strength, you can do it.

SoulWorshiper's Daily Devotions: Ten Great Ways to Dynamically Change Your Life Today!

SoulWorshiper's Daily Devotions: Ten Great Ways to Dynamically Change Your Life Today!

Ten Great Ways to Dynamically Change Your Life Today!

Ten Great Ways to Dynamically Change Your Life Today!
Article Written by: Kenny Martin Jr.

Everyone says they're looking for a change and ready for a difference in their lives. Well here are ten ways in which you can begin to do just that.

1. Forgive someone that you have harbored ill feelings towards for a long time. Forgiveness frees your heart, mind, soul and body to live with more joy and peace. Many times the one who has wronged you is not even doing as well as you think, and more than likely have forgotten...It's time for you to move past it. Prayerfully and with a willing mind, God can heal your heart.

2. Learn something new each day.
Go to the library, and pick up a book and fill your mind with fresh knowledge, You will feel good about yourself, and the new information may prove more valuable than words could describe.

3. Open up your heart.
Be willing to start loving again. I know you may have been hurt before, but that was then and this is now. Love still works, and you deserve to know what it feels like.

4. Be a better Giver
Believe it or not, you will feel like a million bucks when you start to give to those in need. Try finding a charity, or even a single mother, a family, or a child in need. God gives wealth to those who will be a conduit to meet the needs of those who cannot do for themselves...Share the gifts.

5. Go for a walk.
Do you know that just taking a simple 10 minute walk everyday could drastically improve your health and physical shape. Additionally, it is such a great thing to go out and enjoy what God has made for His children to enjoy. You might even meet a neighbor or friend. Turn that T.V. off, and get off that sofa, and see what’s happening outdoors today.

6. Face your fears.
Are you afraid of heights, scared of the water, or just overly anxious about speaking in front of people. Well there are all sorts of classes available to teach you how to do just about anything you can imagine. Often times our fears are wrapped up in the unknowns of a thing. I’ll bet that if you take the time and learn more about just what it is you’re afraid of, that those fears might turn into cheers.(corny I know)

7. Start believing in something more.
It is so easy to refuse to accept and believe those things that we cannot see today. There is a tendency to want to wait for a thing to physically manifest itself before we will believe in it’s validity. This type of thinking may provide for a limited life. There are great joys available to all who are willing to step out in Faith, and allow Hopes and Dreams to have a place in our living. God according to His Word insists that Faith is the only thing that will get His attention for moving on our behalf. It’s the only way to see real change.

8. Spend Some Quality Time With Others.
Our lives can often become rather thick and busy with the hustle and bustle of work, school, soccer practice, bills, and business. There never really seems to be much time available for taking a breath and enjoying one another. Though we may drive to the game together or even to church, we often limit our dialogue to the concerns and cares of life. Even the phone calls we make to family may come only during times of issue, loss, turmoil, and frustration. Turn that around, and start enjoying the gift of family and friends while they are here.

9. Discover a New Hobby
There is so much joy to be found in discovering a new hobby. Take a break from the serious non stop activity, and find something new and fun to do that you’ve never done before. Go to the sporting goods store, the craft store, or the toy store and find a new way to enjoy your time, Be sure and make it something brand new and never before attempted.

10. Stop Complaining
Although it is easy to do, as you can see…it has done nothing. So stop this right away, and get started today and make a Change. Remember Change is not change until YOU CHANGE!

Your Worship will fight for you!!!

Here's is just a reminder to you that your worship is an instrument of war for you. Much of what causes us to fear and have doubt in our minds comes from the lack of adequate devotion and worship with God. Worship brings perspective to the size of every problem and situation we face, and dwarfs it in comparison to our God. When we consider the strength, power, might, shelter, refuge, holiness, might, love, love, joy and peace, of Abba Father, we realize we are covered. Worship will get it done.

Guard what you've got....

Your Integrity and your character are under attack. It's the way you respond to life and situations behind closed doors and when no one is looking. In Ephesians 6:6 Paul the apostles warns us about being men pleasers only, giving eye service. He explains that God requires of us to do everything as unto the Lord, for He watches always.

It may be time to let it go.....



Some habits are worth letting go....along with some associations, issues, feelings, memories, and beliefs....You will know the ones to let go by the fruit that they bare in your life....Are you better with and for them...or have they left you cripple and destitute and possibly robbing you of the peace and joy meant for your life? If so then this is the right time, and the right place to serve an eviction notice effective immediately....
It's time for you to LIVE FREE!!!

Music Video: SoulWorshiper Song - 'Keep Movin..'



This is a short music video I put together with my song "Keep Moving" synched to it. The message is there and I believe pretty clear. Don't stop moving! You were not created to quit. God has an ordained plan for your life, and His purpose is for you to Win!
The suffering, battles, trials and tests are not to make you bitter or to take you out, but to make you better, and to bring you closer in to fellowship with God! It's a process.

You were Created with a Choice...

From the very beginning you were created to have the choice to chose life or death..and this has not stopped. Although it appears now that you are at the mercy of life and all that it brings, I want to remind and encourage you that the breath in your body, and the Spirit which quickens and give it life insures that this choice has not changed. God has just as in the garden of Eden, given you the opportunity to chose to LIVE and NOT Die! Refuse to walk the earth without the full potential of your creator being realized within you. Blessings!

They will keep you from the adulteress, from the wayward wife with her seductive words. Proverbs 7:5

So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth. Malachi 2:15

I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery. Matthew 19:9

But since there is so much immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman her own husband. 1 Corinthians 7:2

The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife. 1 Corinthians 7:3

The wife's body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband's body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife. 1 Corinthians 7:4

A wife must not separate from her husband. 1 Corinthians 7:10

But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife. 1 Corinthians 7:11

If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her. 1 Corinthians 7:12

For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy. 1 Corinthians 7:14

Are you married? Do not seek a divorce. Are you unmarried? Do not look for a wife. 1 Corinthians 7:27

Husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach. 1 Timothy 3:2

The husband of but one wife and must manage his children and his household well. 1 Timothy 3:12

The husband of but one wife, a man whose children believe and are not open to the charge of being wild and disobedient. Titus 1:6

Sometimes Service doesn't work....

There comes a time when everything that you do just isn't enough. You've attended every service, sang on all the worship team ministry opps., been to every bible study, and gave to every need.....yet sometimes things still break down. That is because without the spirit of God, we are operating purely on grace. The Holy Spirit gives us the ability to hear God's voice when it's time to sit down, move out, be quiet, push forward, run faster, jump higher, dig deeper, and stay longer. I witnessed a natural illustration of this just this week....as my car which is supposed to have a service called onstar with the ability to alert me of any mechanical problems within the car, failed to do it's job. This is a service that runs regularly and is designed to get the job done....yet it failed this time because I leaned on it too long and allowed regular attentiveness to take a back seat...So here I am with an obvious mechanical failure occuring, yet at no time did the service alert me of the trouble....it in fact told me everything was operating as it should....absolutely false...and it could have cost me my life, and that of my family's. Such is the case when we allow mere service given to take the place of devotion, consecration, meditation, and personal time with God. It will feel right, it will seem right, and appear to be enough...but if you are not careful u run the risk of spiritual decay.....Answer: Make the main thing, the main thing!

You ready to Listen....

It's not that He's hasn't been speaking, but more like you have chosen to hear only what sounds good to them ears. We've been given the liberty to tune out and listen whatever we so choose. Only thing is, what goes in takes the same journey as a seed planted...what you get in return is a harvest limited by what was planted.....If there is a refusal of Truth, then you will no doubt experience that which may appear real but in time will manifest it's counterfeit nature. Take a second, a minute, an hour, even a day and think about whether or not listening to the Truth has been your habit. If not, (based on where u are and where ur not) are you ready now.....?

Listen....He's speaking!

So I was out today and I saw a woman with a t-shirt on that had the scriptural passage on it about how Jesus said that when whatever we do to the least it's as if we had done it unto them...I'm sure you can recall...Well at any rate...as I walked out of the store...that thing really began to speak to me and in clear terms....It was as if the Lord was opening my eyes a little more to the fact that are refusal to feed, visit, and take care of those who are in need...when we have the resource, is as if we are in refusing to serve the Lord. Our love for Him comes into direct question because He has given us the responsibility of expressing our love for Him thru our loving and caring for those we see everyday. Immediately after each lesson the Lord gives, He is faithful to allow us to demonstrate what we have learned....and sure enough at the next store I had the opportunity to share what I learned and touch a life...Now that was an obvious lesson and test...and a quick victory! I am ready to live it out every day ...in many more ways....Thank you Lord for loving me first...now I can love you back as I love my fellow man. I heard the Word!

Feelings: Get a Grip on em!

It's better to be honest and get control of your real feelings by getting to the root of if all....There are so many things that you may miss out on if you continue to allow the feelings you have to guide every choice....Faith, Courage and truth need to stand up in your life at some point....Now is as good a time as any.

-SoulWorshiper

The Power of the Word!

Just a reminder: The Lord has given us promised all thru His word...If there is one thing that He always honors...it is His Word...When you ask in faith and believe....and stand on the word that He himself has spoken to you and about you....then repeat it to yourself and remind Him of it...(he remembers...it is us that needs to hear it spoken)...in your obedience and faith...he is committed to perform what He has already said..Tears are okay....but they don't get the reaction we think they wil...God honors and responds to your faith and His Word...Read it, Learn it, receive it, Speak it, repeat it, Live it, and Share it...It's Alive!

What's your Love look like?

Love has a few components to it that will make your life complete...And the Word of God spells them out for us. In order to love perfectly, God says to "Love the Lord God first", "Love Yourself", and "Love your neighbor as yourself". in that order.....Without Love for yourself, it will be difficult to really love another person perfectly, and in a healthy way...Loving yourself properly requires us to understand the unfailing, unmerited, unconditional love from God...who calls us friend, sons & daughters. Above all our Love for the Lord give us a assurance that our lives will be blessed....For when we love Him with our whole hearts...our desires become His....and our prayers sound more like his heart... So sure you Love your neighbor...but how do u feel about yourself as well...Are u taking care of what God has given u....How's that temple being treated....Are u speaking truth, and life into your own life too....and What about God? What have u done to show your love for Him....Love was meant to be perfectly demonstrated in your life....Don't stop short of perfect....get it all! Your freedom, health, and Joy are counting on it!

A Life is Worth Celebrating!

Wow....it is amazing how each day brings experiences to your life and if you just listen you can learn a lot. Many say that God does not speak to us all the time, but I beg to differ. He does speak daily through many different instruments of communication. He speaks in the winds, through our children, in our circumstances, as we meditate and pray, while we read His word, and even in our dreams as we sleep....Well what I heard today was that i must be careful to remember that life is to be celebrated, appreciated, cultivated, and promoted more than death.. Isn't it ridiculous that many of our families will never come together unless someone dies? To me it is somewhat exemplary of how we live....tragedy seems to get a reaction out of us much more than accomplishments and good news.....Here we go again with the choices we make to be Happy and to allow the joys and peace of the Lord in our lives....We are already guaranteed to experience some let downs, but must we allow these times to cause us to spring in to action...while the joys of things like anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, recitals. childbirths, baptisms, go often unnoticed, unappreciated, and ignored...It costs the same to travel for these celebrations as it does for to remember and mourn a loss...Please know that I am prepared and ready to celebrate a homegoing, and to mourn with those who do, and cry when i feel the pain of the loss....But know that those tears will not be from the guilt of never celebrating the life while it was lived....Sooooooo....Kiss now, hug now, laugh now, give gifts, and have fun.......Do it while u can...do it now....You and They are Worth it!!!

-SoulWorshiper

Happiness is a choice...

I know they made you mad...I know they don't ever do things your way....you're having a rough time adjusting to your new living conditions, job, church, situation.....They aren't recognizing your efforts, you have had some losses this year (who hasn't) and you aren't feeling very loved....guess what you're still in charge of your own happiness....It's not their problem..it's really yours....They may never tell you what you wanna hear, or treat you the way you wanted to be treated....but its possible that in your daily aggravation, and frustration, you are missing the fact that they are enjoying peaceful rest, and uninterrupted smiles....yet u are spending your day thinking about how u were wronged...Where is any of that getting you? You're probably more tired, upset, unhealthy, and living in fear, doubt and worry....shake that stuff off already, if you haven't!..You have just as much right to live happy and to enjoy the peace, and joy that God provides...We GET to be happy in this walk....It is not meant to be a walk of pious, over serious, boring, unexcited drudgery...but rather a daily journey with fresh experiences, full of excitement and change. Happiness belongs to you, and it's your choice to receive it! Now change your countenance, wear a smile, and BE HAPPY!!! (Trouble don't last always......that's not just a song!)

-SoulWorshiper

In rememberance...

As we take the time to enjoy the fellowship and fun of this day of remembrance...I pray that we also find time to reflect on all that life has brought our way....and really indeed respond with a heart of thanksgiving for the sacrifices made to make our lives great and to have the opportunity to share all that we are on this day....Enjoy it...and please no foolishness today....lol

Who can find a soulworshipper?


Thursday, 28 May 2009 21:06

By Toni Terrell
The Answer Editor-in-Chief


Las Vegas has musical talent oozing from its veins – vocalists who can out sing the best of them, drummers who can command an audience without a melody, and choirs who sound like roaring thunder – but who can find a soulworshipper? It sounds like a tribe of people who speak a different language.


Judging by his personal lullabies, Minister Kenneth Martin, Jr. can communicate with God in this special language that only a few seem to know – at least that’s what it looks and sounds like.


In the spirit, it appears as if Jesus is whispering into the ear of the Father, ‘your boy is on the ivory again’. As the notes began to spring from the keyboard, you wonder what each one means from one spirit to another.


The expressions on his face suggest that each chord struck represents drips of salutations. The one-finger melodies that follow personify gentle kisses shared between loved ones, and the sweet chord progressions that sneak up behind resemble the heart-to-heart hugs between friends glad to see one another after a close call between life and death.


Can you imagine what an impromptu song says?


“When I’m at my best in music, someone possibly even myself, might have an emotional experience and feel a warm or chilled feeling come over them, and it might possibly cause them to ponder a decision and make a turn for the good,” the 35-year-old music lover explained.


“But the soulful sound of the worshiper will however cause a supernatural occurrence from the hand of Jehovah to totally transform that person’s life and bring complete peace and pure love,” Martin added.


An accomplished keyboardist with more than sixteen years experience and the lead musician for the popular gospel group Spirit of Praise Ministries, Martin has probably been the best kept secret in Las Vegas for the last four years – until now.


Originally from Fairfield, California, Martin is known for his tasteful flavor on the Hammond B 3 Organ in San Francisco where he nurtured his craft as he served as minister of music for fifteen years. His weighty background in gospel music – both contemporary and traditional - was evident although the minister of the gospel clearly displays skill in R&B, Jazz, Blues and Funk.


“I don’t take any credit for what God has done with my music, it is definitely all Him,” the son of a preacher man will quickly admit.


“I love music and I love to play it. However, at this juncture and season in my life, I’ve noticed and realized the difference between performance and real worship ministry,” said Martin, who travels extensively with the group ministering. “Both may sound good and draw a response from people, but only one gets the attention of the Father.”


Married to his wife of twelve years, Maya Martin, and father to their two daughters, Chelyn, 9 and Chenel, 7, the Bay Area preacher started his soulworshipping journey at the age of five when he began singing with his siblings. The musician graduated to playing piano and organ at age 12 and eventually established a gospel choir at Armijo High School in his sophomore year. It was in 1997 that he answered his call to the ministry.


“I love my God, I love my family and I love my life,” Minister Martin proclaims. “My love for music transcends time and generations, yet it remains constant with the flow and the direction of God. My desire is to see lives changed and added to the kingdom of God. If I can provoke that change through a calming melody or soothing instrumental flow, my heart is made glad.”


In his presence for more than one song at any given time, it is clear to see that this man has a heart for worship. “I have worked with musicians all my life, I’ve been directing choirs since I was six years old,” said Rochelle Schoener, musician director for the Spirit of Praise.


“I have seen talent that you would not believe. But when it is all said and done, I want to work with musicians and vocalists who have a heart for worship. Kenny has that heart. When he told me that he would rather have favor than anything else, I knew then he was the musician for the Spirit of Praise – not to mention the brother is ultra talented,” Schoener added.


Just weeks away from releasing their first collaboration, Schoener and Martin serve as the musical giants behind the new and improved gospel group. “Spirit of Praise brought back a sound that has been missing in the industry for some time. They truly are minstrels unto the Lord and I'm so excited about this time for them because they are about to take the kingdom by storm,” said T’Mil Curtis of Emerge Records.


One of Martin’s newest songs scheduled to be released first is “More of You,” a love song to God. Performed at the group’s Second Annual Concert Persuaded to Praise, the piece left listeners in tears as its sincerity could be felt in every word.


As the group sang “More of You,” which prompted hands lifted to God in worship, the song proved to be one of the highlights of the evening and was considered a vocal and musical sacrifice to God. “That is going to be my coming out song,” said KCEP Radio Personality Dave Wallace. “You heard it right here in front of everyone, as soon as you all drop that I will play it every day for a year.”


Humble with every compliment, Martin has gained respect through the Las Vegas community as he dazzles listeners with his skillful prances up and down the piano keys and his cross-over chord hopping. His recent accompaniment on the piano for the New Antioch Christian Fellowship Choir during the highly televised funeral of Officer James Manor has heightened his admiration amongst the Christian community even more.


But if you ask people what they appreciate the most in the skillful musician, some may say that he is an excellent father and husband – always balancing his time with music and his time with his family. Others may say he is an excellent teacher of music and a prolific song writer. There is another group who would argue that his encouragement of others in the Word is noteworthy and his attention to detail is commendable.


But if you know him truly, the first thing that will come out of your mouth is the best thing about Kenneth Martin, Jr. is He Is a Worshipper!
So who can find a soulworshipper? I can.

Relationship before Rules!

If there was one thing I learned while leading in ministry it is that rules come late and relationship comes first...It is really challenging to lead from a point of no influence.....People tend to trust in those that they know more often....Come on you see it all the time...Folk in church will even sit down on, and size up people they are not familiar with. They take exception to those that they know very little about....and tend to stand behind those they spend time with, and have had experiences with....Now you can try if you want to, to walk into a new place and start demanding this and that, see just what u get...If noone anywhere knows anything about you, you may be lucky if u leave untouched....It's just human nature..and guess what it works with our walk with the Lord too...He has already given the example of what leadership and order is all about....He himself desires above all to share with us as, sons, daughters & friends...He calls us no more servants....He has always wanted us to know more of Him and to have fellowship with Him....The laws alienated us and caused us to live separated from Him...but the work of Jesus has given us access to walk closer to Him and thus giving life to our eyes, and hearts, and now we are able to live the way He desired us to....Soooooooo....before u get to ranting and raving and shaking that finger making demands....get to know a person, and build a relationship based on common interests and love....It will go much farther...and break down walls that the rules never could....remember....Relationship First!

I know somebody who wants you bad!

I'm so glad the Lord wants me....I remember that song from when I was a kid....When we sang that song in youth choir back in the day...tears always seemed to flow from the eyes of the young girl who used to lead it...I believe even then there was evidence of the Lord's hand upon our lives....The very fact that He chose to reveal His love to us in our childhood reminds us that He really does want us as His own....For whatever we have become or will be...we weren't that back then....yet even you can identify time, places, and situations where it was clear that God's hand was upon your life....He never changes...and remember gifts and callings come without repentance...He still wants us....and He still calls us! Wow, I feel His loving embrace even now as I write this...Thank you Lord, for confirming your love for me...I love you back!
