But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord. I say, ‘You are my God; My times are in Your hands.
— Psalm 31:14-15

Thank you, orchestra, for the wonderful way you began our service last Sunday morning with "Forever."  You all are such a blessing!  Thank you, Meagan and choir, for "Your Great Name" - wow, what a great moment that was in worship!  We have uploaded video of "Your Great Name"  to our website - go take a look and see what an awesome job you did.  While you are there, you can see the songs for next Sunday and listen to demos as well.

I'm really looking forward to another great day as the choir will be joining Jeff in singing "Never Once."  The following Sunday, February 19, choir and orchestra will open the service with one of our old favorites, "Glorious City of God."  Then on Sunday morning, February 26, we will be observing the Lord's Supper.  There are some great times of worship ahead - don't miss any of them!

I've been reading Psalm 31 this week.  David begins this Psalm by reminding himself that he has put his trust in the Lord.  Then he laments the fact that enemies have come against him and caused him to fear and doubt and even to be at the bottom of his existence....he describes himself as "forgotten like a dead man."  Then he seems to awaken and begins a doxology of praise to the God who provides, protects and restores.  What a great example for us this week!  May we be a people who preach to ourselves....reminding ourselves that our trust is firmly planted in a safe place.  Then let us cry out to the Lord in our times of trouble.  Then let us be like David and worship God with all our hearts for who He is and for what He has done.
