God of This City

WOW! This past Sunday was such precious time of worship.  In the wake of Hurricane Gustav, our set this week had a constant theme.  Along with the dimly lit room, our worship time at GLF this week was mind-blowing.  As a lead worshipper, it challenges your approach when those times come with such a simple set-up.  A piano, a microphone, some candles, chairs, and a GREAT uplifting message from Frank and Tim was all The One needed to show His children that they had refuge in Him, and to be honest He didn’t even need that.  Our set this week was:

1. On Christ the Solid Rock – Charlie Hall
2. Everlasting God – Brenton Brown
3. Mighty to Save – Hillsong
4. It is Well – Shane and Shane’s version
5. Communion Song – God of This City – Chris Tomlin

Obviously, all of the songs were relevant to our community, but “It is Well” and “God of this City” ushered in a kind of worship that was bigger than anything else going on in that room.   To hear a room full of people who were with out power for weeks, some that had trees in there houses, and others that haven’t taken their hands off of chainsaws and tree limbs for 14 days sing “It is well with my soul” was incredibly moving.  And then to partake in communion while singing “Greater things have yet to come, and greater things are still to be done in this city,” … wow.  While The One is always bigger than what’s going on in a given moment, yet He meets us to fellowship with us where we are.  It’s moments like that when the revelation of His compassion for His children not only becomes real, but far surpasses what ever boundaries I have put Him in, no matter how adamant I am that those boundaries can’t possibly grow.

“You’re the Light in this darkness, You’re the Hope to the hopeless, You’re the Peace to the restless, There is no on like our God” – Light, Hope, and Peace… God
