Chris Tomlin

The next artist from my list is CHRIS TOMLIN! This artist is such a blessing... I really loved him since 2004. We had an old cd player with speakers and I remember that I burned a cd with Chris Tomlin's songs and we played those songs over and over again in our room. I really enjoyed listening to them...
What I highly esteem is that he writes and sings praise and worship songs...through which I can feel close to GOD! His voice is also sooo great and he's humble, that is very important! 

I just love that God uses me,” he says, “but my role isn’t to grab as much attention as I possibly can, but to really point people to God. I don’t spend my time thinking how to make myself more popular”.


"I'm trying to help people connect to God. I'm trying that myself, you know...I can't go there and just perform, but I want to lead people to somewhere, I want to lead people to God, not lead people to myself. So that takes, you know, having your heart ready...Anybody can get up and sing songs and sing a top 5 song...but that doesn't make you a worship leader...I always pray that God would just help... His Spirit do it."



When he stands in front of believers, it’s his desire to disappear, to surrender to the Holy Spirit and help others release the concerns of the world and focus on worshipping the God who created them.

"‘And If Our God Is For Us. . .’ I just love that statement because if you really believe in God, everything is possible. Miracles can happen and all things are available to you no matter what you are going through. There’s a scripture that tells you that God is for you and who can be against you. I love the hope that’s in that statement.


He’s [God is] offering life. He’s offering hope and he’s offering peace today. I just want people to really grab that when they hear this music. God is for us! Who could ever stop us? That really says everything and what we’re about in our music because we’re about more than just songs, about more than just making records and having songs on radio. We’re really on a mission here and God has given us a platform to travel all over the world and that’s so exciting. I’m so thankful what God has given us, but at the end of the day, it’s not just about the next song that comes along, it’s really believing in that and really living our lives that way knowing that God is for us and nothing could stand in our way.

God knows the desires of your heart (2)

God is really amazing. He amazes me every time. I was planning to buy myself a laptop, because I really needed one. I have a PC which I used and which was very faithful to me :) As I started my Master's Degree I needed a laptop, because I had to go to the city where I'm studying every weekend.

I know (because I've experienced it) that when you need something then you have to sow a seed first, on which God can turn water. So my sister who had to write her diploma paper and needed a laptop to work on Photoshop, Web design, etc. more than I needed it then. I really wanted to help her, so I took the opportunity to bless somebody with the exact thing I need and let God take my wish over. Thus I decided to give her some money. She bought a Dell and she wrote an awesome diploma paper and still uses it with such a blessing. She is a very talented "Photoshopist", web designer, journalist, etc. I was very happy for her and I knew God knows the time when I'll have my lap…

Jesus is coming soon, be prepared

The previous week I was so overwhelmed with my tasks at the university and the exams. I'm a "born" perfectionist and I always like to do everything the best way I can. I was so busy that I didn't have time to do my homework the way I wanted to do them and it was such a big burden. I didn't sleep enough and I was always thinking how to work everything out. I was burnt-out at the end of the week when I had to go to the courses and exams. My sisters tried to encourage me, but I was exhausted. God each and every time gave me encouragements, but I still felt the pressure of these things. As I was taking a bath, I listened to a sermon on my cell phone (I usually like to do that... hihi). Through that sermon God spoke to me and I was really touched by what the preacher said about grace. A sentence caught my attention, it was like this: "The Christians should hang on a rope upon the hell for a few minutes to see and realize what God rescued us from." He also to…
