I created the following music videos as a means of praising and worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ. I used songs I recorded with backing tracks and I do the vocals on the first five videos. I used Rick Osha's version of "That's Why We Praise Him" for the last song. I hope you enjoy all of the videos.
I love you, Lord; you are my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. I called on the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and he saved me from my enemies. (Psalm 18:1-3 NLT)
God has ascended with a mighty shout. The Lord has ascended with trumpets blaring. Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises! For God is the King over all the earth. Praise him with a psalm! God reigns above the nations, sitting on his holy throne. The rulers of the world have gathered together with the people of the God of Abraham. For all the kings of the earth belong to God. He is highly honored everywhere. (Psalm 47:5-9)
With scenes from "The Passion of the Christ", I created this video to portray the pain and suffering Jesus went through for us. Crucifixion was even more brutal than ever portrayed in any film, but this, I believe has come the closest to showing us Jesus' sacrifice.
Breath of Heaven
For me, “Breath of Heaven” is a special Christmas song, not only because of its beautiful melody but because it represents the very First Christmas. It is a story about a young Jewish girl who has been chosen by Almighty God to give birth to the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ, Immanuel.
This song gives us a glimpse into Mary’s thoughts, her insecurities and her feeling of unworthiness to carry the beloved son of the Living God within her womb. “Breath of Heaven” certainly touched my heart. I can relate to Mary’s feelings because I too have felt unworthy of God’s calling upon my life.
And so, I created a video, with my vocals, that hopefully conveys this story using pictures and music. I hope you enjoy my video, “Breath of Heaven.”
Amazing Grace is a hymn that applies to all of us. We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. We have all been lost but with Jesus we are found. We have all been blind but with Jesus we now see.
This is what the Word tells us of God’s amazing grace…
“But now God has shown us a way to be made right with him without keeping the requirements of the law, as was promised in the writings of Moses and the prophets long ago. We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are. For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he declares sinners to be right in his sight when they believe in Jesus.” (Romans 3:21-26 NLT)
God’s grace is His free and unmerited favor toward us. All I can say is thank you, Lord!
Wonderful, Merciful, Savior
When I first heard the song “Wonderful, Merciful, Savior,” I thought it was one of the most compelling and beautiful Christian songs I had ever heard in the Christian music realm. It touched my heart so powerfully, bringing images to my mind of Jesus as our compassionate and loving savior.
He came to earth as a man because He loves us. He suffered at the hands of Roman soldiers and died on a cross because He loves us. And He will be coming for His bride, the believers, because He loves us with an unconditional love. I am so excited to know that one day I will see my King, my Redeemer, my wonderful, merciful Savior face to face when He calls me home to be with Him for all eternity.
That's Why We Praise Him
Jesus was wounded for our crimes; He was bruised for our wickedness. He died on a tree to set us free from our sins, our bondage, our addictions, and our emotional and physical pain. He was put in a tomb and on the third day He rose again. He conquered death, defeated satan and took back the keys to the gates of hell. I wanted to create a video and use this beautiful and powerful song to reveal what Jesus did for us on that special day.
