Jotta A Performing Hillsong's Still in Portuguese

Don't stop this. Watch the whole thing. You will get goosebumps, I promise.

Live life to the fullest

"It is much better to try and to fail than never have the courage to go after something. Too many missed opportunities lead us into the valley of shadow, where we are a pale version of what we could have been. Passivity, procrastination and caution are all forms of regret. It is where we look back at our fainthearted approach to life and discover how timid we have become. It is vital that our past does not become our future or regret will shadow us all our lives." Graham Cooke

This says it all. Look at who are you today and see that every choice you have made has lead you to this point.  I am too passive and I procrastinate and sometimes use too much caution as an excuse.  My future is bright though and there is no excuse any longer.  I am going to chose to live with passion, chose to do and not procrastinate, chose to risk everything so I don't regret opportunities left unsiezed. 

Note: Unsiezed is not a real word but it describes what I need to say so I'm going to leave it and maybe someday it will be a real word.

I want to live life to the fullest, that used to be my motto when I was young, I scribbled it on everything, I used it as my quote in yearbooks so what happened to me? I choose to live and see all that God has for me because I believe most of us are barely scratching the surface when it comes to doing all God has in mind for us to do.

You'll Come - Hillsongs This is our God W/Lyrics

I have always loved this song but I heard it again on Sunday and I can't stop listening to it! Especially the part, "Mighty Deliverer, our Triumph and Truth"!! That is our God, that is our Jesus! I love seeing all these people worshipping and praising and I can only imagine what it would be like to be there someday and be a part of it.
On Sunday a guest speaker told us the story of the beginning of Hillsong. She said the week they were supposed to record their first album the music director quit and took all the music with him! The little secretary, who happened to be Darlene Zschech, had written a song, so she brought it to the table and that's how Shout to the Lord became a household worship song!
The message was to be ready for opportunity and to write down your vision so that when the time comes you'll be ready to seize it! Darlene had a song so she wrote it down even though she was just a secretary, and when the time came she brought it up and now look at her! God has used her in so many incredible ways! She has had profound influence on worship music all over the world!
