I already had people in mind, which I was hoping to take the challenge, when I opened the floor to those who wanted to join the praise & worship team. But things went differently than what I expected.
He brought me mostly people who were volunteering for the first time. This required lots of training to develop musicality and rehearsals to ensure team cohesion. But all the efforts and time sacrificed was worth it! I saw the team growing closer together. I saw individuals improving in their area of responsibility whether it’s prompting (singing) or playing an instrument. Most of all, I saw God was working in and through us
Especially with all the things being prepared for the B1G Unplugged event later, we saw how God has remained faithful and has helped us finish all the tasks we need to complete. We saw how He is moving and what better way to offer a song of praise other than on the event itself.
As the worship team continues to prepare for the songs – we are also preparing our hearts. So when the bell rings and it’s our time to perform we’ll only have one thing in mind – we want to give glory and praise to our God alone.
I am once again inviting everyone to the B1G South Unplugged 2012 event later (September 22, 2012) at 6pm in 3rd floor, CCF Alabang. Tune in and unplug from the world. Together let’s celebrate God’s love and goodness on Saturday!
I like to think, and that mostly involves imagining or dreaming about things. I can put my think cap on and just ignore everything else around me. Which gave people the notion that I am a snob or an arrogant person because I just don’t notice them – I hope they do get over that assumption because I’m not. I plan and think things ahead but there is a verse that makes me realize that I will not be able to think about everything!
20 Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, 21 to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21)
This is the ending statement Paul had for one of his letters. And I just want to take note of how he ended it by describing God as someone who can do things far more than what we can imagine or think about. This makes me excited for a lot of things! I have so many plans and things that I want to do. But with this verse it gives me hope that with all the possible good things we have planned, God has more things planned for me. The things he has planned for you and me are exciting because I can’t even write what they might be because it’s unimaginable right now – more than we could imagine. And I know His plans deeply rooted on the foundation that he loves me far more than I can comprehend as well (Ephesians 3:19).
As I start this blog (previously I used a tumblr blog), push-on with my ministry, and start a new journey in my career – I hold on to his word. I really will not be able to imagine where he will take me in the take couple of months or years but I know it will be exciting!
