Life can get crazy sometimes. As we look forward and focus on worshipping God at the beginning of this new decade, it seems that life has gotten crazier than normal. It seems that many people I know of or have brushed shoulders with over the past month have either lost a loved one, experienced a family emergency, had an accident, or are knee deep in medical challenges. Life can become overwhelming at times, but there is One who is constant and never changing. The God of yesterday, today, and tomorrow is reliable and totally in control. Today’s song feature celebrates and declares our faith in that truth.
Merry Christmas! What a special day this is! Joy as children open up brightly colored packages, merriment as families gather together, and yummy food as people come together to celebrate the birth of the Savior of the world. And on this special day, I have a special worship song to share.
Continuing on in our focus on the person of Jesus Christ, and the worship due Him, today’s song feature is one that the rest of my family actually heard before me. They were attending a church service in a different town than I was that particular Sunday, and this song was sung. It deeply touched them and they came home telling me about. However, it wasn’t until more recently that this song really resonated with me too.
Life gets tough at times. Situations can feel big and slightly insurmountable. Problems can arise and conflict can make life feel crazy. However, we need to remind ourselves that God is bigger than our problems. He’s bigger than our situations and is able to do above and beyond all we ask or imagine.
Another classic hymn, the story behind “It is Well with My Soul” is one of triumph through tragedy. It is the testimony of one man’s unwavering faith in God despite the loss of almost everything. It is a reminder for us that no matter the hard we have to navigate, God is faithful and worthy of our praise.
The Bible tells us that God the Father lifted up God the Son—Jesus Christ—above all and that at His name every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that He is Lord (Philippians 2). He alone is high over all, and by His name and His sacrifice are we saved. Therefore, how fitting it is to worship Him and lift His name up as the only name.
June is here and with it a new worship set! Do you remember the three steps to preparing our hearts for worship that we talked about a couple of months ago? What was the first and second step? Quieting our mind and heart and focusing on the Lord. One of the best ways to do this is remembering what we believe.
Communion. Jesus instituted this tradition and a way of remembering His sacrifice the night before He was arrested, and it has been observed by the Church for the last 2,000 years. At my church we take communion the first Sunday of every week, and as the elements are passed out we sing a song. Therefore, since May has five weeks in it, I decided to share one of the songs I use for communion.
Happy first day of May and welcome to a new worship set on “Here I Am to Worship”! Since this is a new set, we will go back and start with an opening song that fixes our minds on God and prepares our hearts for worship. So let’s get started.
Resurrection Sunday was just a couple of days ago. As we continue to bask in the wonder and glory of what that day represents for us as believers, I have a special song to share with you. You may have heard it a million times, but this song is powerful no matter how many times you sing or listen to it. It has definitely been anointed by God.
