Right now I’m relaxing on the couch with the windows open watching Italian Soccer. “Inter VS Roma”. I love watching pro soccer on a sunday afternoons. Today Jess, Nikki and I lead the worship time. Along with Kenny back on drums after a good break, and Stan got to played bass/keys today. Because we didn’t have a bass player today. Need to find one more of those. I played electric and my Vox tonelab sounded like junk all morning. That was very frustrating. To be honest I’m really tired of sound issues on Sundays. Just tired of dealing with them. I’m ready to go acoustic for life. It’s so much easier and stress free. But I don’t really want to do that because I get to play with so many great musicians. Anyways, the songs today were a little more somber in tone than we usually do. My heart was so heavy while planning the worship time because of all that’s been going on around us the last week or so. The passing of a young member here at FPC, the shootings in NC, TX and Orlando. It’s just allot. I felt like we generally sing joyful songs which is fine but that this week there was a need to address the current state of our hearts and Gods heart for us during such tough times. I hope people connected with the tunes as they prayed them through song today. I have a feeling the sound might have been a distraction during the singing. My guitar really sounded muffled and dirty. Sounded like poo. Now I had prayed earlier with the band that God would use all of the morning for his purpose. The good, the bad, the rotten, all of it. So why do I worry then? Not sure. Possibly because I have things I want to see or hear and I’m not resting in God to provide regardless of what I want. My prayer is that God would move in all our churches despite our own faults, agendas, fears and so forth. And I know he is. I just wish I would trust Him more.
God help me trust you. Just like the song says.
