Feb 9th

Hello all!!I know it's been a while since I've shared in my blog however, I had a very long break and then it took a while for me to get back into the swing of things here in Kansas City. This past week was Global Bridegroom Fast, it was a nice break from classes and a good reminder that I rely on the grace of God and not on my human flesh.
This semester looks very different for me compared to my first. I have 10 different classes this semester but all of them are only once a week so it's not as big of a load as it sounds. I have 5 classes that are strictly music and then 5 that are biblical. I have a class that is called Communing Prayer and the basics of it are building up a secret place in our walk with the Lord. It seems as though the first 3 weeks of school the Lord has been pressing in my heart that who I am in the secret needs to be who I am everywhere else. My hearts desire for this semester is to build up a time in the secret place where I am ministering to the Lord's heart by singing His word, by praying the word and from that place my outward walk will be established. I want who I am in the secret, when I'm with the Lord waiting on His presence to be the very same person who will be on a stage singing to the Lord and waiting on Him in front of people. What happens in m secret place will be the foundation of who I am in Him. All the teaching, all the preaching, all of the worship sets will only be built on top of what has been established in my secret place. I have set this as an important goal for this semester and have even pushed out any thoughts of joining a team until this is completely and habitually established in my life. A lot of this revelation has come by reading Secrets of the Secret Place by Bob Sorge. I encourage you to read this book, I'm not even through all of it yet but it has amazing truths that have really opened up my eyes to a lot of things about spending time in the secret place with the Lord.
I am continually praying for you all! Please let me know if there is anything I can come in agreement with you about! The Lord is good and his mercy endures forever, I want to see that truth be so present in all of your lives!
