Songs for Sunday – 5/10/2020

This Sunday is a big deal. We get to gather together – with appropriate social distancing and guidelines and such. But think about that: we get to gather. Every Sunday is a big deal because 1) it serves as a reminder for the Resurrection, and 2) it reminds us that God makes us part of something bigger than ourselves.

This is good news for us because we are all facing things that we cannot handle alone. Don’t get me wrong: the people sitting in the worship center with you (all sufficiently distanced, of course) cannot solve your problems or end your suffering. But we gather together in worship of the One who can, and ultimately will.

I wish I could tell you that there will be a time on Earth where suffering will not be the norm, but I would be lying. The farther we get away from the Fall, the worse things will continue to grow. But, the farther we get away from the Fall, the closer we get to the return of Christ! And He has not left us alone in our trials and suffering.

That’s what we’re singing to Him about this Sunday!

These verses were on my heart as the worship set came together this week:

  • Psalm 30:5 — For His anger is but for a moment, and His favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.
  • 2 Corinthians 12:9 — But He (Jesus) said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
  • 1 Peter 5:6-7 — Humble yourselves, therefore, under the might hand of God so that at the proper time He may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you.

That’s good news! We will have sorrow, sadness, and even suffering, but that’s when our Savior steps in and takes care of us for His glory. It may last a long night, but there is a Day when it will all be good because then we’ll be with Him.

Here are our songs:

I hope to see you with us, whether you gather in person, in the parking lot via speaker, or on Facebook or YouTube live!
