My new fav

30 Mar

]I finally got a chance to listen to the entire Hillsong United “Savior King” albulm on my way to Fresno this weekend.  If you have time and you haven’t heard the CD, watch this. 

Lately, I have been reading a lot and learning about being intentional about making our worship “God focused.”  Although I think there is a place for songs that say “I am nothing, I love you, I am blessed, etc.”  the common denominator in a lot of worship songs is the “I” focus.  As worship leaders, it is critical that we are directing the focus where it should  be…. bringing ultimate glory to God. 

This song does just that.  When I hear songs like this, I imagine joining the choir of angels who are unceasingly singing “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty.”  Focus? Always giving God the highest praise we can.

    i absolutely love this song =) you are soo right about our worship being so inward focused. and there definitely is a place for those, because they are prayers, but you are right, there is a need for balance . I think there is something powerful and healing when we lift our hands and make the choice to declare who God is, singing Holy, Holy, Holy.

    So love your thoughts. Right on. Its what my heart craves… taking a few moments to declare who God is & forget who I’m constantly obsessed with… namely, me.

    We are so tremendously blessed at Sandals to have you.
