2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new.
Home Is _____
One of my new friends in Paris is doing an art project called Home Is ___. It is an invitation to ponder what home means to you and to express that in some artistic form. I felt led to do a poem and create this video. I hope you enjoy.
Wonder - Hillsong United (video)
In celebration of Earth Day, I opted to create this worship video of an amazing song by Hillsong United, 'Wonder.' As we look at the beauty of God's creation, may we all recognize the true creative genius of the Lord, and the ways that He has blessed us with nature and beauty in His creation. God bless you today, and feel free to share this video.
So I'm starting to really dig the idea of worship videos that truly glorify God and His infinite creative genius. Here's my second in a series of worship videos that showcase His glory, the beauty of His creation, and the power of the Word of God. Oh, and this is one of my favorite songs. Enjoy, please share on social media, and subscribe! God bless you.
I think all those years of doing collages are starting to pay off! I'm really excited to share this worship video with you, the first of many more to come. Share it on your social media. God bless you and happy Easter. He has risen!
Here's a short poem the Lord gave me this morning called Testimony. Given the Easter season, it's good to reflect on the story of Jesus, and all that He's done for you, especially taking your place at your trial to see where your eternal destination will be. The only question is: Will you accept His standing in for you?
The Gratitude Podcast - Episode 1
The Near Miss
In this inaugural podcast episode, I talk a bit about what this podcast is all about, and share the story of God's supernatural intervention in my life in June 2011, when I was nearly killed in an auto accident. It is only by God's grace and mercy that I survived being hit head on by a car going 70 miles per hour, as the driver was fleeing police in Tacoma, WA.
Thanks for checking this out! Please feel free to share this with others, and let me know if you're interested in being on the show. God bless you!
The Lord gave me a poem today called "Why?" - it explores the times that we ask that question about the things going on in the world or in our lives, but neglect to consider God. Please watch it and feel free to share. God bless you!
The TACOS Prayer System
Today I was adding some great resources to New Christians - a section on resources, some great free tools for prayer, Bible reading, and devotionals. When I looked for something online that provided a simple overview of the TACOS prayer process, I couldn't find one. So, I created one. Talk about a great way to use your time while being quarantined in Paris! I hope you will find it useful. Please download and share.
Dare to be Me
I felt led to share another poem the Lord gave me. This one is about waking in His image. In this video, I read the poem and also share some encouragement and Scriptures.
Derrick Rhayn is a new Christian and seeks the will and Word of the Lord.
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
