Set lists 1.1.12 & 1.8.12

The past few weeks I have not put up the set lists.  I apologize because I get asked all the time for what we sing at 24/7.  It is a huge calling on my life to be a worship pastor and I truly love what I do, but many times I don’t look back on what I’ve been doing and have something to compare it to.  I believe that we should all be striving to do more and more in our respective callings.  God didn’t call us to sit by casually and let things just happen.  He wants us to be actively pursuing creativity and honestly, I feel that I have a long way to go.  I can get stuck in a routine of trying to do certain things a certain way.  And I want to break free from that.

One area for me is this area of set lists.  I don’t want to just keep doing songs the same way and choosing them because they are familiar or something of that nature.  I want to get to a place where 24/7 is a catalyst for worship in this city.  There are many churches who worship well and I believe that we are one of them but we have a long way to go.  And I don’t want to get in God’s way.  But here are some songs that we did the past couple weeks to express the heart that God is shaping in us.  Let us know in the comments what songs your church is doing.  I truly believe that God is calling His church to be the most creative place on earth and I know that I am not even close to expressing that with my life.  So let us pray for hard work to come forth from our spirits in order to worship Him most fully and to show His love to a world searching for truth.

2012

Always at the beginning of a year, I do some re-evaluating of my life and it is hard to look back.  It is also hard for me to look forward.  Do you feel any of that in your life?

I’m not sure why I can’t just embrace each day as the abundant potential contained therein.  I just live a life of ease and then regret after many wandering times.  But this year, I wish to take it on fully.  Being fully present in each moment and holding onto the life that God has called me to live. One that is not meant to be viewed day-to-day but is to be embraced by each experience.

I am excited about 2012 (even though it might be the world’s last).  Are you?
