Looking For A Band in Minneapolis, MN

Hey Folks! 

I wanted to take a second to check in and put the word out that I am looking to build a band.  

My heart yearns to write praise music to God.  I will be doing this primarily through rap, but feel a call to build a sound similar to that of a Rend Collective or Shane and Shane.  If you are part of a band in the Minneapolis area and your heart is to praise the Lord through music and teach and edify the body, hit me up on the contact link.  I would like to speak with you.

Grace and Peace,


Lessons Learned

Failing ministries, trials, persecution, hardship, lack of ministry opportunities, and less church.  Put this together and you get a recipe for what Mike Streezy says has him seeing Jesus Christ more vivid than he ever has before. 

Gifts without Foresight

Streezy speaks on gifts and what is more important as outlined by Paul in 1st Corinthians.

Beware the Scribes

38 He also said in His teaching, "Beware of the scribes, who want to go around in long robes, and who want greetings in the marketplaces, 39 the front seats in the synagogues, and the places of honor at banquets. 40 They devour widows' houses and say long prayers just for show. These will receive harsher punishment."  -Mark 12:38-40

I just read this moments ago (prior to writing this blog) and something about it instantly emerged and caused me to open up Word.  Beware the Scribes….Kind of sounds like a religious horror film. Like something you might find on VHS or LaserDisc (remember those) in a pile of junk at church somewhere.  I can see the intro when the title flasjes across the screen in that old school lightning bolt looking font: Beware the Scribes (Dun Dun Dunnnnnnnn) (Woman’s Shriek!).  But anyways, let’s get back on topic!

Breaking Up with God and My Problem with Prayer

I have had a problem with prayer for some time now.  It started shortly after I left church when I was sixteen.  I used to pray ALL of the time.  Literally.  I would have conversations with God throughout the day and into the night.  I would talk to God like He was right there.  I remember it not being awkward at all.  It seemed so natural. I felt like God was always listening. 

My problem started as I realized that relationship was drifting.  I’m not sure when that was, but I remember being embarrassed.  This was odd because I was so used to openly praying everywhere for anyone that asked or anything I felt needed it.  I suddenly found myself failing to just talk to God.  The random and constant conversations with God just dried up.  It reminded me of that point you can come to in a relationship where you are with your girlfriend or boyfriend and you just don’t have anything to talk about.  You know that awkward feeling you get when the moment where you are both sitting there avoiding the obvious occurs, but if your buddies were there you could talk for hours.  Matter of fact, its like that moment where the silence is so awkward you just want to hit your buddies up on the telephone and tell them about how awkward it is right then instead of continuing to sit in the awkwardness.  Yeah.  That was it. I guess I was breaking up with God.

Tim Tebow and God: Does God Care About a Football Game???

What's up with this Tim Tebow thing.  Are Christians really saying that God cares about what happens at a football game?  Streezy looks into it and he has an answer for you!

What do You Want to Hear???

Hey folks!

I know it has been awhile since my last update.  I feel as though I have been in the midst of a test.  I am proud to say this is one of the first times in my adult life that I can honestly say God's Word alone has completely carried me.  I have felt an amazing and unexplainable comfort and security.  It was really awesome to not feel the need to look to sin in any way whatsoever to relieve my pains.  I know the devil would love me to resort to drugs or alcohol by way of self medication.  He wants me to look to the world's way of healing found in sexual immorality and anger, but He left them no room or power!

Due to the incidents, I will have a bit of free time away from human interaction and prior responsibilities.  I plan on using it to put a lot of research and thought into completing songs for my upcoming mixtape L.A.Y.E.R.S. of G.R.A.C.E.  I  want to take amoment though and ask if any of you have had to deal with something you might like approached through God's Word in music.  As you may know, the cd will be FREE with the purchase of the devotional dvd where I will explore God's Word and present the biblical application applied to the songs.  This means that your song (if chosen) would also have an accompanying video devotion to delve into the subject more deeply.

I hope you are getting as excited about this project as I am!  I plan on wrapping it up in the very near future and continuing production on the dvd as well as a separate devotional study guide!  Look for more updates in the very near future.  As always---Thanks for your prayers and support!

His servant,

Mike Streezy

Also: Power of Praise is JUNE 25th!!!  I can't wait to spend a night of praise and worship with you for such a worthy cause! Jesus is STILL alive and well and WORKING in our community!

Brian Head Welch Show, The Letter Black, LAYERS, and Standing Up for Your Faith!

Hey folks!

I know it's been a little while between posts, but today I put up a NEW blog!  It is rather lengthy, but I felt the need to speak on it.  I want to stop by really quick to drop some updates.

This last week I went to the Brian "Head" Welch show.  It was awesome as expected.  I met some really cool people from the bands there.  My personal fave was The letter Black.  They were awesome AND they donated two signed discs to be used for Power of Praise! I would recommend checking their website out.  It is www.theletterblack.com.  They are awesome and totally amazing people!

I also received signed merch from Head, Decyfer Down, and The Wedding.  I'm still trying to contact Kris Allen and if it is in God's will, I will try and get something from him autographed for the benefit! Please keep the show in your prayers.

I am still writing on LAYERS though I must admit that it has not been very much lately.  I'm kind of like that though.  i get a spark and take off and then I sit for awhile.  I love the direction of the album and have really big plans for it.  Be on the lookout.

God has protected my family and I through several deadly storms over the last couple of weeks.  I am very thankful.  My life is in His hands.  Thank you to all of you who checked in on me and prayed for us!

I'll be speaking with you soon, but I want to leave you with an interesting story.

Chuck Swindoll, in his book, "Living Above the Level of Mediocrity," tells about a church in the Soviet Union a few years ago that was forced to meet secretly because the holding of house church services was illegal.

They tried to be as inconspicuous as possible as they gathered on Sunday to worship the Lord, so they came at different times & casually walked into the house until they had all arrived. Then they would close the doors, pull the curtains, & quietly worship the Lord.

But one Lord’s Day, right in the midst of their worship service, two soldiers broke into the room, & at gunpoint lined the Christians up against the wall. One shouted, "If you wish to renounce your faith in Jesus Christ, leave now!"

Two or three quickly left, then another, & then two more. Again the soldier spoke, "This is your last chance. Either leave now & renounce your faith in Christ, or stay & suffer the consequences." Another left, & then another, almost hiding their faces in shame as they went out.

But the rest stood their ground, children standing beside their parents, trembling, some even crying as their parents stood with their hands in the air, fully expecting to be gunned down or imprisoned.

After all had left who chose to flee, the other soldier closed the doors, looked back at those who stood against the wall & said, "Keep your hands up - but this time in praise to our Lord Jesus Christ. We, too, are Christians."

The two soldiers explained that some time earlier they had been sent to another house church to arrest the Christians there. But in the process, they had heard the gospel & had accepted Jesus as their Lord & Savior, too. But they explained, "We have learned that unless people are willing to die for their faith, they cannot be fully trusted." (from http://www.sermoncentral.com/illustrations/sermon-illustration-melvin-newland-stories-1466.asp).

I hope you all have a great week and stay blessed and prayed up!



As always we ask that you continue to pray for this event. I have a personal prayer that I have been praying and ask that any compelled pray it as well!


Lord, prepare the hearts of those that will attend.  I pray you will open them to hear your Word and be accepting of its’ message and call, both to salvation and God’s amazing grace as well as His command to carry His love into the world around us.

Lord, prepare us with the Word to nourish all of those who will attend in the area that you will prepare them to hunger.

Lord, I pray that you will receive ALL praise and ALL commitment from those in attendance and those working!
