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.
