151- When Bad Things Happen

bad things happenWhen bad things happen in your life or in your ministry it is tempting to be overwhelmed or feel sorry for yourself.  You may even get mad at God (who doesn’t deserve any of your anger), and find yourself reacting badly to the situation.

You need to respond rather than react to whatever has happened or whatever has been said, and you must make sure that you respond in a godly way!

So this worship leader podcast is about how you respond to the times we all face when bad things happen to you.  It might be someone criticizing you, insulting you or circumstances seemingly working against you.  No matter what you face, or how you feel, this pod will help you to overcome difficulties and let God use them to build positive changes in your life and character.

So settle back and listen to today’s very special worship leader podcast, and turn whatever lemons you face today into lemonade!

This testimony of restoration of life and ministry will bless and encourage you.

Whatever your situation, however you feel, what ever you have done, or what ever sin you have committed, this is a testimony you need to hear.  You will be encouraged and blessed hearing about how God not only forgives but also restores and rebuilds our lives and our ministries on this very special worship leader podcast…

Christian DoormatBeing a worship leader, you probably want to serve the Lord, your church and your praise and worship team.  But sometimes, indeed many times, we can become Christian doormats, and our eagerness to serve others results in them taking advantage of us and our abilities and walking all over us!  This can happen in any church, and even well meaning pastors and leaders or dedicated worship team members can hurt us or take advantage of us.

The question is, where do you draw the line and stop becoming a Christian Doormat?

Here’s the thing, you don’t have to be walked over or even abused just because you have a servant heart!  This special podcast looks at where you can draw the line and how you can be a wonderful servant, anointed praise and worship leader but NOT a Christian Doormat!

And if you want to learn more about what you should NOT be doing as a worship leader, and avoid some of the most common pitfalls you might face, then check out our special presentation

The Top Ten Worship Leader Mistakes and How to Avoid Them!



quiet in your worshipThis worship leader podcast is about using quiet in your worship leading, which is a much overlooked technique that can have a seriously powerful effect as you lead worship in your church.  Often we make a lot of noise in our worship leading, and we love lots of instruments and also love arranging music.


However, quiet and even silence as you lead worship can become an essential and highly anointed thing to do, and that’s what the guys explore in this week’s podcast.  They look at both silence and also quiet music, and discuss ways that you can use both techniques every week in church and make it never sound awkward, weird or strange.


So settle back and find some quiet in your worship leading, and discover how you can use this to really touch the hearts and lives of your congregation time and time again!

And don’t forget, you can learn about quiet in your worship leading and loads of other teaching available at our exclusive Praise and Worship Leader University for just $1.00.
