I can't tell you how many times as a worship leader I've been asked, "can you play this song", "can we do more of this particular style". Or I have heard "that's not worship" or, "I can't worship to that style" It's the never ending balance of tension between the new songs and the old songs, between different styles and genres.
When things don't go like I want, when I seem to be in a waiting place, I immediately turn to God and start asking questions. What's the deal God, why can't things be easy. So and so, just went and pulled that off like no big deal. Of course I've been asking those questions. I've learned a few things along the way, here are some thoughts:
God has given us free access to Himself, to understand His character, His heart, our future, our direction for the day. Search it out, ask the Holy Spirit to reveal it to you. Be specific in your ask. God what are You thinking about this person, or this opportunity, or help me see what I can’t see. He will show it to you.
I was driving to downtown Dallas the other day, it was cool outside and classical 101 was playing in my car. Instantly I was taken back to a moment years ago as a young adult. A man hired me to help him in North Dallas work on his garage. Every morning for two weeks he would pick me up in his Mercedes with classical music playing on the radio and drive me to his house. We worked in his backyard remodeling his garage. It was a fun few weeks, he not only taught me a little about construction but a different perspective on life.
