Surrender

Just musing today with Ian… being a worship leader is really tough. There are songs that you love and that have ministered to you and you sing over and over again them with your guitar in your room.

But when it comes to choosing songs for the service.. those songs.. just don’t fit! You’re struggling to rearrange the order, changing the keys… but in the end – God says no.

I’m glad I lead at P&P (adult service), because it really reminds me that being a worship leader is about leading the congregation to God. Congregation/God. That’s it. I have to pick songs that will lead THEM to God, not what leads ME to God.

Surrender.

  1. Yeah! “, I hear you…

    though sometimes, God ministers to us with a certain song first, and then through us leading that song, God ministers to and blesses others!

    Take heart! Leading worship isn’t meant to be ‘compromising’ on ourselves either! Pick songs that will lead US (ME and THEM) to worship God, not what leads ME to God. After all, we are standing together as a body, and worshipping Him together! “,
