TD Fri. – Offerings 9! (here’s a peek at Offerings 2, 3, & 4)

Hey TD!

We will kick off the new year with Offerings 9 and encourage you to use your break time this week to prepare a short original “offering” for the Lord.  It can be in any form you desire – a song, a poem, a drawing/painting, story, dance, anything really; something that comes from your heart that is inspired by what you enjoy about God.  It can be just yourself or in a group.  The theme is “ENJOY”

As usual, it can only happen if you take a risk, take some time to prepare, and participate!  Think of something you enjoy that God has given you and thank Him for it.  It doesn’t have to be perfect or anything; just something that you want to offer to the Lord in gratitude.  Tell your small group leaders what you would like to offer this Friday, so we can put you in the program.

This week, we’ll post some videos/links of past Offerings.  ENJOY!:

Believe (lyrics)

By Jenny Liu

Verse 1:

Do I truly believe that Your love has no bounds?

Do I truly believe I was lost but now am found?

Do I truly believe that You’ve given me more than I need?

I believe, help my unbelief!

Verse 2:

Do I truly believe that Your Word is alive and real?

Do I truly believe Your promises, despite how I feel?

Do I truly believe that You are worthy of all I can give?

I believe, help me believe

Chorus:

That You’re my shelter in the storm

You’re the lover of my soul

You’re my true and faithful friend

You are God and You’re my Lord

You’re the reason that I sing

You’re the worthy King of kings

You are more than enough for me

This I believe

Verse 3:

I choose to truly believe that this world is not my home

Yes, I truly believe that this life is not my own

I choose to truly believe that I’m loved because of the Cross

I believe, yes I believe

Bridge:

I believe that what I believe is really real (x3)

Lord I believe you

Chorus 2:

That You’re my shelter in the storm

You’re the lover of my soul

You’re my true and faithful friend

You are God and You’re my Lord

You’re the pearl of greatest price 

Only You can satisfy 

You are more than enough for me

I believe

TD Friday – Offerings 3!

Hey TD!

August 28th is approaching … meaning Offerings 3 is right around the corner. That’s right, round 3 is here! The past two nights of Offerings have been such a blessing, how could we not take another opportunity to give heartfelt praise to our Creator, who has given us our unique abilities, talents, and skills?

Now, if you have never heard of Total Devotion’s night of Offerings, then you’re in for a treat. It is a night where God is the main audience, and we, as children of God, present our offerings and sacrifices of praise in honor of Him. It can come in any form: a song that you wrote, a song you just want to sing, a piece of artwork, a memorization of a Bible passage/verse, a skit with your friends, etc. ANYTHING! So long as it has come from the heart and has the intention of honoring and loving God, the possibilities are endless 🙂

During our summer series, “Potent Once More”, Arthur reminded us of the importance of our “being” and how it comes before everything we do. Spend some quiet time before the Lord and prayerfully ask Him how He can be honored that night in light of the new beings He has made us to be … in Christ!

If you are interested in being a part of this very special night, please contact your small group leaders with a description of your offering (and approximate length) by this Wednesday!!!! Your small group leaders will also be emailing you reminding you to sign up as well! 😀

Thank you guys so much! – Dora & Clara
