Worship Planning for August 9, 2009 Part II

Well, it’s Tuesday and I haven’t been able to come up with any music for this weekends worship service. I haven’t been able to come up with a theme much less songs to go with that theme. I’ve been in this road block before and it’s never fun. I hope God inspires me today.

I plan on going to church this evening to get music all setup and ready to go. Hopefully I’ll know what I’m doing by then.

Worship planning for August 9, 2009

I’m leading music at my church again this weekend. Which means time to start planning and putting a bunch of music together. It’s such an awesome process. To think about putting music together so that people can corporately praise God. It’s an amazing time to sit down and think about the words of songs and their meaning and how they can draw people into God’s presence.

Whenever I do try to plan worship, I try and think of a central theme that can be sung throughout the music. In an ideal world, the music would say the exact same thing as the message being preached that day is saying. Unfortunately that doesn’t always work. So through prayer and the leading of the Holy Spirit, I pick songs that I believe God is leading me to.

I am not certain yet where God is leading for this week of worship. We will find out in the next few hours, hopefully. My personal goal would be to have all of the music at least picked out by tonight and e-mailed to Armida at church by the morning. We’ll see if that desire matches up with God’s plan for this week.
