God's Presence

I have been waiting for tomorrow for quite a while. The beginning of Spring Break, and the day I am blessed to be able to lead worship at chapel. I have been given some real spiritual meat this week preparing me for tomorrow. I couldn't be more excited. The theme for chapel tomorrow is "God's Presence." I had really been feeling God in my life over the past few weeks, so I felt that we should focus our praise and worship on His awesome presence. I will be putting my order of worships on here from now on so feel free to use them in whatever way you want. I like using themes. In my experience it is alot more effective and helps every worshipper focus on a central theme of God and praise Him for that.

Blessed Be Your Name
Had It Not Been the Lord
Take me now to your heavenly throne-
It is you I want to finally meet and praise in every way.
Take me now to Your heavenly throne-
I want to kiss Your feet and be with You all day.
I can not endure this world without You;
I can not make this pain subdue…
You know my heart- You know I long for eternal life.
Do amazing things with this body, that keeps your sons soul inside of me alive.
Take me from here- for I have no burdens keeping me away.
Lord, take me to your heavenly throne-
Dear Jesus, I pray for that glorious day.

Arms of Love
Psalms 62:1-2
My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
He Will Come and Save You
Revelation 19:1
After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting: "Hallelujah!
Revelation 19:3
And again they shouted: "Hallelujah!
Revelation 19:6
Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: "Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
Shout Hallelujah
This is How We Overcome

It should be good. I'll let you know how it goes...

Worship Thought:

"Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face."
~1 Corinthians 13:12

We will be completely unveiled worshippers, seeing in full what we see only in part now. We will become the perfect unquenchable worshippers, for there will be nothing to quench our devotion. No more tears, no more troubles, no more pain. We will be the ultimate undignified worshippers, no doubt joining the 24 elders as they throw themselves before the heavenly throne. That day will bring a freedom in praise the likes of which this world has never seen. Every distraction to our worship will have passed away. No more temptations and no more enticements. Completely undivided worshippers, we will stand in the very presence of God, and He alone will consume every heart.

Good luck with leading worship tomorrow night, Jordan! I know you'll be fine. Worship comes natural to you, and it disarms those who are exposed to it, they just won't be able to keep from joining in. :)
