"Lives Depend On It." is a Christian Organization that aims to remind people to live, lead, love, and serve others with intentionality while reflecting the compassionate heart of God.
Created by Worship Leader, Singer/Songwriter and Entrepreneur, Trinity Anderson, "Lives Depend On It." came from a time where she was challenged with the decision to live out this very cause while facing turmoil in her own personal life. From deciding very quickly that since her help was always found in Jesus, she would proceed to lead worship each week with the mindset of aiming to help others get to that intimate place with God for themselves.
"Leading worship through my own struggles wasn't easy. Many days I cried after just leaving the platform, but I knew that God had my back and for the time being, I needed to pull myself together for someone else who may have had it even worse than me. I'll never forget a Sunday, my Pastor, William McDowell, notified me that a couple had come to our church in Orlando, all the way from Africa, and they were believing for the wife to be healed before heading home. They had heard about the miracles that had been happening in our atmosphere and spent all they had to be a part of it. His instruction to me was to do whatever it took during worship to make sure that the atmosphere was open for the Holy Spirit to do whatever He wanted to do. So at that moment, all of my own trials went dim. I quickly put on my game face and it was a truly powerful Sunday because I remembered yet again, that leading worship isn't about me. Other lives depended on it.
My hope and prayer is to raise awareness that as we go before others in ministerial tasks, we carry the weight of compassion, just as Jesus Christ did on the cross for us."
