Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 57

Looking Up

Psalm 5:1-3

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto you will I pray. My voice shall you hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto you, and will look up.Psalm 5:1-3.

I don’t know, there’s just something about the stillness of the morning that makes it the perfect time to connect with God. Before all the busyness, the noise, thinking about everything I have to do, I can focus on the Lord. I like what the Psalmist says. I will direct my prayer unto you and will look up. Now that’s a great way to begin the day, my friend.

Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 42

Songs to God

Psalm 95:1

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

I don’t know about you, but I love to sing Christmas songs year-round. Some of the most beautiful songs ever penned were hymns of praise celebrating the birth of Jesus. “O Come, Let Us Adore Him” was going through my mind this morning and I thought – we could sing this anytime, just like the Psalmist did. It’s amazing how many Psalms are devoted to the praise and adoration of Jesus, known in the Old Testament as Jehovah.

Listen to this exhortation in Psalm 95:1: “O come, let us sing unto the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.” Join me, friend, in worshipping the Lord God.

Praise Expo 2015

Charlottesville Virginia is a major music town. It makes sense that churches would involve music in their outreach strategy as well as stage praise and worship events.Praise pics 3a The folks at Aldersgate United Methodist asked Debbie and I to be a part of Praise Expo 2015. We were one of the music teams to perform that day.

Here’s a wonderful testimony of how the Lord directs our path.
While at a jazz jam session a violinist showed up. Her tone was wonderful and she seemed like a sweet gal so I met her afterwards only to discover she is a Christian, recently graduated from a music program at a Christian college. I contacted her later asking if she might be willing to join Debbie and I at an event, which she was. After looking at our web site, she messaged me that her dad traveled with his family growing up doing a similar ministry to ours. They have a heart for our style of ministry. We rehearsed the music an hour before the concert and performed well for our Lord. Thank you, Victoria Pent, for making the music even better!

It always blesses me the way God connects us with brothers and sisters to join in the joy of sharing the Good News, whether on a concert stage, on the street, in someone’s home or in a church setting. May God ever be glorified in the testimony of His saints, as we raise awareness of His immense goodness wherever we go.

Thank you, Lord, for connecting us with Victoria and her family. Many of the musicians we have a close relationship with have come into our lives by Divine appointment. We know God has a special plan for each one, and we pray the Lord, Jesus Christ will make Himself known mightily in each life and family.

Sound Check! McLean, VA

Last week we were invited to do a  house concert in McLean VA which is located within the 495 loop in D.C. Our friend, Jennifer, hosted a wonderful party with food and friends. She was so clever to promote the event on Facebook and had a great turn out for the size of her place!
Worshipping in McLean

The Holy Spirit was powerful as we sang, praised, prayed and shared testimony.
After everyone left, Jennifer’s dad suggested everyone to gather around us and pray. This was the first official “laying on of hands” before leaving for the summer journey.

Prayer and Laying on of Hands

Thank you Jennifer! You have been a blessing to us.
