Like every other post I’ve written for Songs of Waiting, I realized that there is so much information and I’ll have to write more posts on specific pieces of each topic. This will be a general post about prayer, but I pray it encourages you. Prayer is so important. We know that. We’re told over… Continue reading Pray About It
There came a point in my life when I needed Jesus so much more I'd intentionally seek Him anywhere I could. One of those areas was music, so I began to listen to only Christian music. I thought it would only be for a few weeks while I was walking through the valley, but I'm… Continue reading The Power of Worship
**Please remember that topics like the following post are expected due to the nature of the message coming from Songs of Waiting.** Song of Solomon is a beautiful book of the Bible.

If you would have told me that this is where I'd be at 23 years old, I would have laughed. I wouldn't have believed you. I never imagined myself here, but I can't remember half of the plans I had for myself at this age. I know it didn't look like this though. Never did… Continue reading Plans of Hope and a Future
