So Lori and I were set to lead worship at church on Sunday. We were doing a couple new songs that we needed to go over with the drummer.
But Melody decided she was going to climb everywhere and then fall from everywhere. She was crying. She was hungry. She was tired. She wouldn’t stay put in the Sunday School class.
And it was frustrating the heck out of me. After all, how could I go over the new songs with the drummer in half-chorus chunks?
Naturally, the fact that I was getting frustrated over it just made Lori frustrated with me.
Needless to say, my heart wasn’t in the right place about fifteen minutes before the service started.
So we had two choices. We could just forge ahead and try to do the best we could or we could take it to God and give it to Him. We chose the second option. We gathered the band together and prayed. I confessed my jerkiness and we sorta folded up the rehearsal.
Despite the fact that we were only two voices (Lori and me), keyboards, bass and Melvin on drums, the band seemed extremely full during the worship part of the service. It was almost as if we were getting supernatural help.
After the service, Lori remarked to me on the way home, “That was probably the worst rehearsal we’ve ever had… and maybe the best worship we’ve ever lead.”
Funny thing about how God can work.
Now let’s see how God's going to use us tonight at the Springs Rescue Mission.
