Nothing like #SONGSonSUNDAYS for JoY!
[with Giveaway]

Pentecost Sunday is commemorated worldwide today.
Holy Spirit’s inspiration to breathe fresh wind and light fresh fire
to the kindling of our life.  
On the 50th day after Easter, Yeshua's followers gathered in one accord, of one mind united in praying together.  The wind of Holy Spirit descended upon them with flames of fire.
They received the “gift of tongues” – the ability to speak in other languages – and immediately began to talk about ADONAI to people from all over the world who had
flocked to Jerusalem for the Feast of 
The precedent was set.

Adonai says:

“In the Last Days,I will pour out from my Spirit upon everyone...and they will prophesy.  I will perform miracles in the sky above and signs on the earth below —blood, fire and thick smoke.20   The sun will become dark and the moon bloodbefore the great and fearful Day of Adonai comes.21   And then, whoever calls on the name of Adonai will be saved.”


 Scripture's s
ymbols of Pentecost are those of the Holy Spirit including
 flames, fire, wind, and a dove.

Psalm 103.33-35

"May the glory of Adonai last forever!  May Adonai rejoice in his works!
I will sing to Adonai as long as I live, sing praise to my God all my life.
May my musings be pleasing to him; I will rejoice in Adonai...
Bless Adonai, my soul!  Halleluyah!

OCEANS [Where Feet May Fail]
You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You've never failed and You won't start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

Oh, Jesus, you're my God!

I will call upon Your name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine

John 15:26-27; 16:4b-15
Acts 1.8
"But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth."


Romans 8.26-28
"Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good."

MWS on the video:

"I’m really passionate about the song SKY SPILLS OVER.
It was fun creating it in the studio and I’ve been overwhelmed at the response it gets when we perform it live every night.
My son Ryan is a really talented filmmaker so I always enjoy working with him on a project.
..what made this project even more special was that
3 of my own grandkids were in the video.
This video was a lot of fun to make.
I hope people enjoy it!"
