Worship with Me...

Hey guys,

It's lee. I have an idea. How about I make a few videos every now and then. They're not going to be really big and produced. It's pretty raw, but basically I just want to spend some time in worship with the bloggers. God's big enough to fill all of cyberspace with His glory. So put on some headphones or get alone and let's seek God together!



Here's some scriptures to think about as we're worshiping...


Psalm 16:11 - "You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Ephesians 3:18-20 - "May have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us."

Acts 2:28 - "You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence."

Thanks so much Lee! I already commented on the video on youtube, I am the one who has been singing Carried To the Table all day :) This is great! Anyway I can download it so I can put it on my Ipod...and listen and worship with it before I go to bed?

Lee, I just found out that ya'll have a blog yesterday and worship time w/ you made this blog my favorite, by far. Thursdays are my crazy days. . . busy all day with a few minutes here and there to take a deep breath. So thank you for helping my mindset be focused on our Creator. It has made me think about how can I spend the rest of my Thursday while worshiping our Father. Please keep these videos coming. . .b/c I truly appreciate them!

I love you Leeland, everytime I worship with you I feel the presence of the Lord!

Love and prayers for you!

Your mama!

Bethany said...

Thanks! I already checked the site once this morning before you posted this. Something just told me to come back and check it again. I really needed that today. I would love it if you did this everyday, but I know you probably can't considering your very busy schedual. I will be there to worship with you guys tomorrow night! Can't wait and I hope I get to meet you guys again too.

Sheri said...

Thank you for not being ashamed to truly worship and share your gift online in this way. I can honestly say, here in my home office as I watched that I was nearly undone by your transparent heart before the Lord and how it ushered me in to His presence in a time in my own life when I feel a bit like I'm in the desert. God bless you, the band, and your families to continue to do what you do so well while giving Him the glory.

Emily Lynn said...

This was a great idea and I thank you for it.

Steven Rossi said...

Thanks man. Fun stuff.

Emma said...

Dear Leeland,
That was wonderful. I'm on my youth group's worship team (I'm a singer like you! But I don't know how to play the guitar...yet) and I wish we had all the spirit and inspiration you do while we worship.
You were just as inspiring when I saw you in Plymouth in December. My friend and I drove an hour and a half just to see you! I wish I had had enough courage to come up to talk to you during the dinner beforehand, but I was shaking I was so nervous, now I know that I missed out on talking to a really great guy.
God Bless,
Emma

Veralie said...

I really hope so.

mswillowgreen said...

GcbGirl said...

Bente Marie said...

I like your blog! It`s fun to read!

Christopher said...

Lee thanks so much for the video! Thanks also for the constant encouragement!

Not to change the subject, but just stumbled on these people today...wondered if y'all had heard of them...they're giving their album away for free right now so check them out. http://share.go-backstage.com/pagecxvi/

Matt said...

Thank you so much for listening to God and doing this. What an incredible way to meet people where they are. I plan on sharing this post on my blog tomorrow morning so people who read it will have the opportunity to make time to be with God in their day. Take care, bro.

Princess Samantha said...

Hey, Jack (if it happens to be Jack reading this)...I read your twitter about "can you lose your salvation?" I just wanted to make a comment on that: The Bible says that God will never leave you and nothing can "snatch you from His hand." So I don't think someone can LOSE their salvation, but probably one might accept Christ into their heart and not really mean it. They can get excited for a while, but then forget about Him or get swayed. I don't believe someone can lose their salvation; they probably just didn't get saved in the first place.

Holly J. said...

wow... that was truly amazing. some of that stuff you said when you were talking brought tears to my eyes. thank you so much for that wonderful message. and also your singing never ceases to be amazing. so thanks a thousand times over.

California Cowgirl said...

wow, thank you lee, I really needed that, i was crying the whole time.
It's so great to see how much God is doing through the band. I hope you guys are coming to SoCal sometime soon...

Abby said...

Thank you Lee for doing that. I really needed that, as I am going through a tough time with God. But just worshiping like that, not on a Sunday or Wednesday night with my youth group was rare and special. We all need God, not just twice a week, but everyday. Even though I have been asking God for his presence, as it feels like He hasn't been there for awhile, right now God has just filled me up with His spirit. Thank you for everything you do. Also, thanks for those verses cuz they are talking about the exact things that I needed. Our God is truly amazing and I praise Him for having you do this for so many people who watch and follow your blog because I bet most of them felt God today too and that just blows my mind.

Love,
Abby

Lisa said...

Abby H said...

I pray that all followers may continue to have a strong walk with you God. They continue to love you God and serve you in all they do. Nothing can separate us from the love you have for us God! Ahem!

Hi Lee:)

I just got home from such a long day. I didnt really have any time with God. I was just going to go to bed because I was so upset with the world. But then I read your twitter and decided to come watch you video. It really was a moving thing for me. I am in tears and feel closer to God more than i have in a few weeks. You really made me realize the God is all I need. Thank you for sharing. You have really touched my heart.

Thank you so much Lee!! Seriously, you have no idea how God used this for me today. It ushered me into His presence and everything else fell away, I was crying the whole time. Keep doing what you and the guys are doing, it's so great to see your transparent love and passion for God. I'm praying for you! Much love :)

Skout said...

this is awesome! thank you!
the best worship time ive ever had was with your band Howell, MI... this is going to be wonderful!

Samantha said...

this is truly amazing. there is really no wrong time to worship. i was not expecting to watch this video, but sitting home alone i did. halfway through, i completely broke down. the part about God being able to be anything, even a dad, hit home for me. with tears pouring down my face, i prayed with you. i cant believe that a video was that impactful. thank you so much for making this video. it was great. i really really needed this. i would love it if you made more worship videos. God bless :)

kelly said...

eilin said...

thank you so much! i really needed this...he is everything we need, which means that without him, we are nothng, and theres nothing we can do...and we are weak, so weak! and its in our weakness we he becomes strong and we can take his hand and hold it tight for ever... and then we realise that as job says we had just heard OF him, but now our eyes can see him. He is love, and i wanna be full of him.

love u all!
Eilin

Princess Samantha said...

Hey, Jack, thanks for the reply. That meant a lot to me, and I felt really special. :) It kind of reminds me of you guys's song "Falling For You." Anyways, you guys are doing something really great. Keep getting into the Word and worshiping God; and as Brandon Heath would say, "Don't get comfortable!" ;) I'll see you guys in July at Student Life!

Amen.

You really do change lives.

Thank you.

Princess Samantha said...

That video was beautiful. I was sitting in front of the computer singing and lifting my hands. It's amazing how many different means of communication we have today; we can worship God online! You need to make more of those!

Av said...

That you so much Leeland for the blog--and this vid!

I left a comment on youtube. To follow up on that comment, I ended up having stuff go wrong (not "get into trouble" wrong) but I managed to stay cheerful throughout the afternoon :)

-Av

p.s. off topic question: why isn't your first album available on iTunes? i went to buy it and it wasn't there :( (i'm buying it elsewhere though--I love the songs on it)

Rafaela said...

Thanks! =)

Naomi said...

This really cheered up a bad day, since I missed my own church service today. Keep on with your worship Leeland!

-Naomi A.

(P.S. I'm not sure if I need to know this, but my email is: nadinkra@ashland.edu, just so you know? haha question mark.) : )

Beth said...

Aw thanks Lee!!! This is totally awesome, love it! You're such an encouragement and an inspiration. Rock on =)

Mika said...

I thank God for putting this beautiful worship song in to Leeland. and thank Lee for deliver it to us through the blog.

In His name,
Mika-from Japan :)

Margaret said...

I believe with my whole heart that God introduced me to you guys and your music on purpose. It wasn't by any kind of accident that your music wandered into my life. You speak directly to my soul - and you speak the words from my soul. This worship... it's exactly what I've been singing myself for the last few weeks. Thank you so much for making this video, Leeland. I know that God was obviously not doing this just for me, but a piece of it was. =) Thank you for being sensitive to His Spirit. What an amazing blessing...

Beth said...

You guys are amazing!

Julie said...

WOW!!! You are beautiful! God, Jesus, our Lord is still shinning through you! Thank you for the amazing time of worship! Thank you for taking the time to lead us in worship even on our computers! Please do this often. It is changing lives! I have been brought closer to Him through you and the band! I'm still listening to your CD's every day in my car for over a year now! You are an amazing gift of love from Him to us! Hey maybe you and Jack could follow me back on Twitter?

follow @julieand.
Thanks,
Julie

This blessed me...Thanks Lee.

Kenzie said...

thank you, thank you, thank you for that. i needed it. god bless you!

Tori Clements said...

More of these, please! It's so rare during the school year to have a time of worship like this without a strict set and time limits, like when we lead praise and worship for a church service. Thank you for listening to God and putting this up.

Grace said...

Hey Lee, I know I'm a little late in replying, but I wanted to let you know that this really hit home. My family has been having a lot of problems lately. We will be going though a lot of changes soon...it's hard to understand why, but I know that through His strength, we *will* make it through.
Thanks so much for posting this!

Bethany said...

I hope you make another video like this soon! I've already watched it about six dozen times. :) I love it. I've been so busy with trying to find a job and with other things in life lately, that it is nice to just sit back and take a break and worship for awhile. Sometimes I even watch it before I go to bed at night and it makes me sleep better.
