Praise & Worship Show Playlist (Jan. 11)

January 11th, 2015 5 comments

Hi everyone!

Did you hear my good news this week?  My husband, Sam, and I are expecting a baby boy in mid February!  Check out my blog post here.   This will mean some changes in my work schedule–but it won’t change anything on the Praise & Worship Show!  I’ll run some repeats for you around the time the baby is born…but I’ll be back with fresh material for Sunday mornings after that!

Sam & I have waited a long time for our family to start.  Since getting married 7 years ago, we’ve also both fought cancer (and are back to good health)!  This edition of the show will bring a powerful theme: “Songs To Sing Through The Storms Of Life”. Many of the songs in this playlist are ones that we sang–and were strengthened by–during those tough times.  You’ll see the playlist below and a few other tidbits.

“Don’t you know that day dawns after night, showers displace drought, and spring and summer follow winter?  Then, have hope!  Hope forever, for God will not fail you!”  — Charles H. Spurgeon

Sixpence None The Richer puts this memory verse in song and encourages us not to worry about tomorrow; He’s got it under control.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart

    and lean not on your own understanding;

in all your ways submit to him,

    and he will make your paths straight.” 

 [Proverbs 3:5-6]

Moment Of Celebration-Chorus Of Praises

December 19th, 2014 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on the chorus of praises surrounding the birth of Christ.

Christmas reminds us that Jesus is God’s ultimate gift to the world.

The birth of Christ was a cause for celebration for Mary, the mother of Jesus, who said, “My soul glorifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.”

The birth of Christ was a cause for celebration for the shepherds. After their encounter with the baby Jesus, they returned to their fields, glorifying and praising God for what they had heard and seen.

The birth of Christ was a cause of celebration for the wise men, who brought gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh to Jesus. They also bowed down and worshiped him.

The birth of Christ was a cause of celebration for the heavenly angels, who said on the night of His birth, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

We can join the chorus of praises in response to a loving God who remembered us and came to meet us at our point of need.

The birth of Christ is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

Moment Of Celebration-Life Changing Impact

November 6th, 2014 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on the life changing impact of God’s grace.

After Paul was converted to Christ, there was a noticeable change in his life. Instead of wanting to persecute the church, he wanted to build up the church in the qualities of faith, hope, and love. He had an earnest desire to see Jesus glorified in his life. Through his testimony, that is exactly what happened. He became a devoted follower of Jesus, which was a reason for churches to praise God. Not only did they lose an enemy, but they gained a friend, a true ally who would speak up for the Good News of Jesus Christ, and be influential in leading people to the Lord.

In Galatians 1:22, Paul was talking about his spiritual journey after coming to faith in Christ. He said, “I was personally unknown to the churches of Judea that are in Christ. They only heard the report: ‘The man who formerly persecuted us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy.’” Then Paul says, “And they praised God, because of me.”

This goes to show that if Paul can be converted to Christ, no soul is hopeless. When someone makes a sweeping life change like this, the body of Christ has the opportunity to surround that person with support and encouragement.

The life-changing impact of God’s grace is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

Praise & Worship Show “Holiness” Theme

September 28th, 2014 No comments

Thanks to Bob for suggesting today’s Praise & Worship Show theme: “The Holiness Of God”!  He also provided a tip for those of you who are trying to find songs to fit themes: www.PraiseCharts.com/themes.  I checked it out and it did, indeed, help with some suggestions!  I also like to check iTunes, lyrics on Google and find Scriptures that relate to lyrics.  My husband, Sam, and I are worship leaders–so I also just sort through my brain, which has compiled a nice database over the years.  :)

Below you’ll find my playlist for the program.  Please get in touch (email me or comment on this post) if there’s a theme you’d like to hear on the show in the future!

If you’re into the theme today, Isaiah 6 is a passage in the Bible that many of these songs reference.  Click here to read it online at Bible Gateway’s site.

Moment Of Celebration-Praise From The Redeemed

September 5th, 2014 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on the praise that flows from a redeemed life

Here is one person’s testimony. The Apostle Paul wrote in First Timothy 1:15: “Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners-of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason, I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.”

Paul is saying in essence, that if Jesus can save him, he can save anybody no matter how deep their depravity has taken them. When Jesus saves us from our sins, He fills our heart with thanksgiving and praise. We realize the dark destiny He rescued us from and the hopeful future He is leading us to experience. His mercy is marvelous in our eyes, and it has changed us from the inside out. Now we have been set free to bring glory to God with the activity of our lives.

The praise that flows from a redeemed life is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

Moment Of Celebration-Worship

July 29th, 2014 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on worship from the heart

In Psalm 69:30, David, a man after God’s own heart, said, “I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving. This will please the LORD more than an ox, more than a bull with its horns and hoofs.”

It was common for animal sacrifices to be used under Old Testament law to reveal our need for forgiveness and cleansing from sin. In reality, they were not the real cleansing agent, but they did foreshadow the complete cleansing from sin that we can experience through faith in Jesus Christ, who was the perfect sacrifice to take away our sins.

David was saying that sincere worship from a thankful heart would mean more to God than the offering of an ox or a bull on the altar.

Hebrews 10:22 invites us to draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith. God has given us music as an instrument to lift up the name of Jesus with words that overflow from our heart.

Worshipping God with a sincere heart is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

Praise&Worship Show: Nature Theme

July 20th, 2014 2 comments
I saw a back-to-school commercial the other day and thought, “Oh no…summer is almost over!”  Since we’re usually spending more time outdoors in these warmer months, I wanted to do a special Nature Theme…before fall returns.
If you think of it in time, today’s playlist would go so perfectly with a hike, bike ride, walk or even a cup of coffee out on the porch.  (Look up Psalm 8 for some theme-related reading material.)  WJTL’s free new app would come in handy to take these songs on the go!  (Download at the banner on the right or by searching “WJTL” on iTunes.)
Email me if you’d like to join the weekly playlist email group–or if you have theme/song/worship leader suggestions.
