RT @bobgoff: Most of the things I was afraid of never happened.
JUST ANNOUNCED SOMETHING pretty big in our latest little video (link in bio).
We’re letting a little whimsy lead us again.
Beginning in March we’ll be journeying in the adventure of RV/Camper Living!
Here’s to a new life!
A new lifestyle of tiny living, days of renovating, and hopefully fun travels.
We don’t have a place to park so if you’re in the Raleigh/Durham area and would like to host a crazy couple on your land PLEASE LET US KNOW.
Thanks for the support, prayers, and all the love. And stay tuned for more announcements regarding our new life on wheels. Follow our friends who are doing the same thing! It’s a movement!! 😂🙌🏾 👉🏽 @mama_tyger
Love you guys. -Majesty + John
After leading a worship conference this past summer I felt compelled and “called” to play piano. I DO NOT PLAY PIANO. Well I did not play.... until now. 😊 I felt the Lord say that he would empower me to learn quickly through his spirit and a lot of practice. Fast forward ⏭ We had to Song Share at the #bethelsongwritingretreat and I was like, “Crap. I know I have to play piano...” Even though I’m so comfortable on guitar, I knew it would be honoring to Him AND THE SONG that he gave me through the KEYS. 🙌🏾😭 Kinda like when David would write songs specifically for a certain instrument... Ya feel?
It was my turn to sing. I cracked a few jokes, read a passage in my journal and sang my song “I’m Here Now”. I knew it would either be really really good and blow everyone away -or- it would be really really good from the Kingdom perspective, failing and stumbling a little throughout for the ultimate attention and all faith to be put on God. It was the latter. I’ve experienced this before... Gracefully I allowed God to lead by choosing to play piano. They got the rawest me. The actual unpolished, dependent Majesty. I like singing and playing well but I also enjoy you seeing me in the process of learning and growing. Swipe for a snip of feedback. 👉🏽
To be honest- (and some of you might know this) I really didn’t care for church much for a while. It seemed forced and spiritless. Door greeters would smile too much (lol) and pastors would tip toe around the feelings of their congregation, never allowing Truth to really be spoken. I would leave church feeling like I had wasted my time.
A lot of those characteristics still exist, I know. But what I didn’t realize until now is that I was apart of the problem. The body of Christ only works when everyone is actually functioning in their roles possessed by the Holy Spirit. I was still broken and working through so much on my own that I couldn’t see how needed I really was.
Fast forward to these days— I just don’t give a crap anymore. And when I worship and greet and speak, there’s a fire I had never felt before. Probably because I fought for this. Probably because now I know that I’m contagious. The people of God should be contagious!! Changing the atmosphere and expecting the change to last. Whether people know I’m valuable or not, I’m a part of the Body and I’m functioning in that no matter where I am or what door greeter gets on my nerves.
Those vegan worship team post-millennials who take pictures between services.
Yahweh has family for you everywhere. No need to get used to a sedentary life. @thecourydays ♥️♥️♥️
Name droppin because I love a good name with a good reputation. During my insta hiatus I got to do some pretty sweet things; including meeting and writing with people with awesome stories and track records. I wish I could be everywhere all at one time!! #Dallas I’m comin for you anyway... @elyssasm. But I love me some @bribabineaux too 😭♥️
Thankful for fun writing gatherings! If you haven’t seen my ATL Songwriting vlog the link is up there somewhere. 👆🏽
Today God interrupted my regularly scheduled program to belt through my voice a few truths we all needed to hear.
My prayers before leading this morning:
1– That I would be hidden behind Christ. Literally prayed that every good thing people would see about me would turn into a compliment to how real and present Yahweh is.
2– I prayed I would lead with humility. Knowing that I have “skill” but that’s not what’s special about me leading... there’s nothing remotely good about me apart from my dependency on Him. He makes me everything I am and give it back to him in a sacrifice of praise.
3– Lastly, I prayed that even my body language would convey and communicate a spiritual reality. Nothing would be conjured or used as distraction. -
Encouraging my other worship friends to be intentional about prayer time before stepping on stage! I’ve felt so responsible and guilty sometimes for doing it alone and easily turning it into a show for the congregation. That’s not what I’m using my gas money for!! 😡😂#butforrealthough
So honored that He would choose me for a small act of service. It’s the LEAST I can do for kingdom. Let’s do it again!!
Truth is, I have no idea how I end up in the places I am. I was apparently “sponsored” to go to #Songsmith2019 (one of Bethel’s songwriting retreats). OKAY LORD.
Still unpacking (literally and figuratively because I’m lazy) all that I took in last week in Redding. Here’s what I KNOW I’ve learned so far:
1– That Yahweh has family for me everywhere. Waiting to love on me and provide where I lack. So many people helped me get there and I literally wouldn’t have made it on my own 😭
Also just the fact that it’s easy to feel at home standing shoulder to shoulder with some BELIEVERS IN CHRIST. 🙌🏾
2– My love for people grew like 50x. Each person’s face and song was a different side of God. They were all so beautiful; raw and vulnerable. You don’t find that everywhere. @bethelmusic created that sweet space.
3– So so many great writing and co-writing tips that I can’t wait to apply to my life!!! It was pretty much like “live @worshipu” so I was definitely freaking out a bit. Thankful, inspired, ignited, all those things.
Also not pictured was @kristenedimarco. She’s a feisty conundrum and I like it. Her message has been on repeat in this house. #thanksvoicememo #thanksbethel #thanksgodforcaringaboutmycreativity
