Do You Know the Holy Spirit?

I was 15 years old when I fully gave my life to the Lord. You may ask, "What does that even mean???"
Simply this: I made the decision that from that point onward, I was going to surrender my will, and my life to God, and allow Jesus to have full reign over me. Jesus would control my thoughts, my actions, and my speech. I learned of Jesus in God's word, and prayed each day to become more and more like him. On my own I could not succeed, because spiritually, Amy was already dead. I had to burry my old self, my old ways, and allow Christ to ARISE in me. Apostle Paul said, "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me" (Gal 2:20). The moment I asked Jesus to reign in my heart, I became spiritually awakened, ALIVE, and received the gift of eternal life. Dear friends, you are reading the blog of one who will never die!

Many people think that "in order for me to come to God I first must clean up my own life so He will accept me." I'm telling you now, if that is what you are waiting to do, you will never be able to come. Your life will never be clean enough. If you try and stop "sinning" on your own, you will fail every time. You need the Power of Christ. You cannot change on your own. You cannot remain faithful to the LORD unless His SPIRIT is living in you. Eternal life is to know God. If you do not know him, you are already dead. 

You need to pray for forgiveness. Pray for His spirit to live in you, so that your OLD self can be buried!! You receive His Spirit through faith and through prayer.

Dear Christians, ...what is your life supposed to look like? Do you KNOW the Spirit?

- Does your heart hurt for the lost for those who are unsaved? Jesus weeps over these people. Do you?
- Do you care for the lonely, the sick, the tired, the poor, imprisoned?
- Are you sensitive to sin? Do you hate what God hates and love what He loves?
- Do you have power over sin? Or do you give into temptation every time?
- Are you able to love others freely without casting judgement, or holding grudges?
- Does the way you dress say more about this world? Or more about Christ?
- Do you care for your brothers and sisters?
- Do you hunger and thirst for TRUTH?
- Do you spend time in God's work and speaking to Him each day? Or do you just run to Him when you need him??

Being a Christian is not a fancy titled, or something to list on Facebook as your religious orientation. To be a Christian means to be Christ-like.

Jesus speaking to His disciples:
John 14:
(15)“If you love me, you will obey what I command. (16) And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor [the Holy Spirit] to be with you forever— (17) the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will bec in you. 1

When God looks into your heart, does He see YOU or His Son? 

Friends, Brothers, Sisters, ....this question is so important to answer. There are many many people who are going to be terribly disappointed at the end of their lives. It is true that you are not saved by your works, you are saved by your faith and by the grace of God. But if you had the faith, your life would also bring forth the fruit:

Galations 5
(22) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, (23) gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

If you do not have the mind of Christ, the Heart of Christ, what is going to save you? You must have faith in the Saviour Jesus Christ. If you have faith in Him, you will be changed by Him forever. His Spirit will live in you-- His spirit will speak to you, comfort you, chasten, lead you, bring to your remembrance words from the scripture in times of struggle,... In His spirit, you will be able to do ALL things. You will be victorious.

Before Jesus rose to heaven he told his disciples that He would leave His Spirit with them and with us. What an incredible gift. What an incredible responsibility we have to appreciate it.

There When You Are

Words & Music by Amy Savin

The Saviour asked "dear Peter, do you love me? 
Peter replied, "Lord you know I do" 
Then again and again, the Saviour said "Do you love me? 
If you do, feed my sheep, feed my lambs"

'Cause I see one stumbling down, And no one's around.   
I see one wandering away, I see one too weak to pray, 
And she's dying to found. 
To be my hands and feet, You love the least of these.
My heart is there when you are.
My heart is there when you are.

You say you love me; You love me three times,
But you're asking "when Lord, when were you hungry, when were you cold?"
You say, "When were you sick? Lord, When were you naked?"
I am hurting every time my own hurt.

Do you see the forgotten one,
Do you know that's my son?
Oh he's been walking the streets, with tired and wounded feet,
But there's no place to call home. 
With your mouth you speak, but it's your body I need.
My heart is there when you are.
My heart is there when you are.

I'm a father to the fatherless
A mother's arms to her restless,
A brother to the broken hearted
So if I'm the vine, and you're the branches
You're my body as it reaches to all nations, into every heart

Oh I see one stumbling down, they need you now.  
I see one wandering away, I see one too weak to pray, 
Will you show them how? 
To be my hands and feet, You love the least of these.
My heart is there when you are.
My heart is there when you are.

Rocky Ridge Ranch 2011

Well isn't that the truth?? Summer is indeed still alive and well.  I can't decide whether I feel like it's been too long or too short at the moment.  I feel like I've travelled the world these past few months, and by world I really mean the United States. Ohio, New York... I was recently in Harrisonburg Virginia at a Christian camp. It was a long busy week of leading worship, and running around helping out with various activities, but it's one of those things I do every year. I love all the relationships that are built there. When you have a bunch of wired/ weird girls in the same room, you KNOW you're in for a good ABB work out. I quite enjoy those moments of laughter. Thank the good Lord for humour.  Keeps me sane. Before that I was at Rocky Ridge, helping out at a youth retreat, came back from vacation at Grand Bend.. and this week helping out at our local vacation bible school.

Other than that-- I'm still pretty booked up for shows this August, so feel free to come out! Check the 'events' tab on amysavin.com for details. I have a new radio program called "Because You Asked" that airs in California. My first episode was aired last week. It's an interview I did with my dad before he left for Zambia. Feel free to listen up at : http://www.oc-talkradio.com/amy-savin.html. I may blog more specifically about this show later.

Next little TID-BIT of info, I am proud to say that I am an official partner with Compassion Canada. I recently just sponsored my own Child, Mushimiyimana. True story: I cannot pronounce her name, but she is absolutely precious! She is from Rwanda and is quite the athlete! What I love about Compassion is the way they focus on 3 C's: Christ, Child, Church. They have churches set up in all of their locations who work directly with the children you sponsor. I'll be presenting more of Compassion at the various events I play at. I hope to really spread the word. It's such a simple way to make a BIG difference.
On scene of music video location for FLY ROBIN

Other news in the making: in a couple weeks I'll be working on my first ever MUSIC VIDEO :) Multi-media guy & movie producer Peter Rollo is flying out from Cali to shoot the movie, as well as my brother Ryan. I'm really excited to see how this all pans out. I was stressing about it, because it is a TON of work, but at the end of the day, I think I just need to remind myself why I do this.... and to be thankful that I can. Pursuing this music career, nothing has been handed to me on a platter, but I must say--- you do gain a lot of wisdom in doing things yourself. You also have complete control over all your projects. It's kind of neat to be able to produce things independently. It causes you to be more creative ;) 

Alrighty--- no need to bore you with every detail of my life, ...the last thing I'll blurb about is the GMA Covenant Awards. I have never submitted anything here before, but the DAY before submissions ended, I had a meeting with one of their representatives, and in the nick of time got my music in! Results will be shared August 27th. Obviously it would be a thrill to win an award from my album, or radio single, but at the end of the day--- Jesus has me where He needs me. 

If you want to help out with the PUBLIC VOTING, you can go to http://www.gmacanada.net/index/ and click on "CLICK HERE TO TAKE SURVEY". Thank you to all those who already voted. It DOES make a difference.

Alright folks. Sorry there wasn't a whole lot of depth to this entry. Just kind of served as a recap of what I've been up to. Helps me sort out things sometime in my own mind when I write it out. I've left out a bajillion things,  but that's usually how it goes. Hope you all have been having an amazing summer. Let me know what you've been up to. I may not respond to every email or message ( I certainly try) but I do read them all. Thank you for your love and prayers that you extend to me. You keep me going!
