Where's Your Hiding Place?

I rarely have a total "holy hangover," but today I am dog tired!! It's been a long past four days - the visual arts for our new series "Summer of Love" kicked our tails, but it looks great. Thanks again to the team for the incredible transformation.

It was also difficult to come into this weekend mentally prepared after our Worship Concert 2007. Our lead pastor, Bryan, made a great point during our Creative Arts Team meeting last weekend. He noticed that while our team brings it every weekend, during the Music Concert we brought it on steroids. His point was this - why can't we bring it on steroids every weekend? That's a great point.

It's not so much that we have to be bigger and better every week (Or maybe it is? See this post), but God does ask us to bring our best. If we come into the weekend with a mindset of "it's just another weekend," then we probably aren't going to be bringing our best. Jeremiah nailed it on the head when he set up the song "Unashamed Love" this weekend - quiet our minds and find a hiding place. Yesterday is gone, but today is here. Worship Him every day because He is worthy.

To quote a recent theme, what are you going to do with the "here and now?"

You're calling me to lay aside the worries of my day
To quiet down my busy mind and find a hiding place
Worthy, Worthy

I think that we need to give God 100% every service. We just have to make sure that we have a large enough team so we don't wear anyone out. Being a sports nut, the steriods word just scares
Great job this weekend by the way.
