Update

Hey everyone!! I’m so sorry for the lack of posts, things have gotten really busy lately. I’m posting today to update you on what’s been going on lately.Autumn has finally woken up and is beginning to touch our part of the world. So excited for the cool weather again; it definitely brings me more inspiration.

I’ve worked on a few covers for you guys, but we seem to be running into technical difficulties with each one. We’re still working to get them up, though, and I know we’ll figure out a way sooner or later. I’ll post them ASAP, thanks for your patience.

I’ve gotten back to songwriting! Yay! Right now, I don’t have material ready for posting, but I hope to do some editing here and there and bring some to you soon. I’ve also gotten back to digital design and writing, I can’t wait to share some more with you.

That’s all for this update, I’ll just leave you with a song that I’m loving this week:

Thanks everyone!

Midweek Motivation and The Revolution of Prayer

Hello, all. You’ve made it to the middle of the week! Way to go! But in case you’re becoming weary of the work days (as I am) I have some songs and some thoughts that will hopefully inspire and motivate you.

I would like to start with this upbeat song from Jason Gray, reminding us all that we are God’s witnesses and we are in every situation for a reason. Keep on keeping on, guys.

Next I would just like to share with you all what has been on my heart lately: prayer.

I have been hearing a lot about the importance of prayer lately and thinking about it a lot. I have come to believe that prayer is so important in the life of Christians. Prayer is an underrated privilege that we as Christians have! Prayer is the way we get to spend time with the God of the universe. That’s pretty huge. Prayer is where we get to come to our Father and pour out our hearts, not having to hide anything, because God knows how we are anyways. Yet he still loves us and urges us to come to him. So, prayer is a way for us to come to God with our troubles, pray for deliverance, and receive hope.

Another reason I believe prayer is so needed in our lives is because prayer changes us. Nothing has changed me more than praying to my Father. When we pray, if we pray with the right heart, we allow the Spirit into the room, and God speaks to us. This… incredible joy is like nothing else. When you’ve felt the presence of God, you realize how dirty you are and how merciful and good He is, and you begin to pray for change. By and by, we find, hallelujah, we are a different person.

Prayer is the instrument to work miracles with. I have a book called Why Pray? by John DeVries. All throughout the book, there are amazing examples of families, neighborhoods, and churches changed through the power of prayer. Oh, how much we could accomplish through Christ if we only accessed the underused resource of prayer! Prayer is a revolution. Our Father longs to give to us and perform miracles, but all too often we forget just how powerful prayer is.

I believe prayer should be organized. There are many different ways to do this, but I find it easier if I write down all the requests, praises and thanksgivings, categorize them, and then pray aloud after the model of the Lord’s Prayer. I personally find this method to be so helpful, but obviously you should pray however you feel lead by the Lord.

I don’t know if I’ve accurately communicated to you just how significant I believe prayer to be, but I sincerely hope you don’t forget to pray tonight. It is such a blessing. To end, I just want to say that the book Why Pray? by John DeVries, mentioned above, explains all this much better, and I highly recommend it if you would like more of this in depth.

Last thing, I promise. Just another song to hopefully inspire you.

Update and Announcements

Hello, friends. It’s been a long time since I’ve posted on this blog, but that’s going to change. As you can probably see, the site is undergoing rennovation. I know, I know, didn’t we just have a remake a few months ago? Yes, but due to some hacking issues, we had to wipe the slate clean and build this back up. So, don’t blame me, blame the hackers.

Maybe it’s for the best, though. After all, I’ve gone through some changes myself, some obvious, like getting a haircut, and some not as obvious, like rediscovering God. I can’t wait to share more with you guys about what’s been going on lately, but for now I just want to give you an idea of what’s going to be changing on this website.

*I’ve decided to start posting acoustic covers of songs. Isn’t that exciting?!? The current cover I’m working on is Stitches by Shawn Mendes, but is subject to change.

*I’ll be posting a lot more about what kind of music I like! I had a separate blog for this, but I’ve decided to merge them.

*I’ll be posting more of my thoughts, wonderings, and writings.

I have more in mind, but you get the idea. This blog is about to become busier. I’m so excited!! Before I end, I want to let you guys know about the blog I keep with my friend Hannah at Dance Out The Feels. If you’re into fandoms, you might enjoy that.

Thanks for reading! I’ll be getting back to you with new content very soon.

~Yours Truly,

Anna
