You are on our side


Thanks to Rachael Rice for this photo she took of our team a few weeks ago.  She has her camera with her at all times and captures many moments I'm not even aware she's capturing.  It's awesome.
 "Every time we think of you, we thank God for you. Day and night you're in our prayers as we call to mind your work of faith, your labor of love, and your patience of hope in following our Master, Jesus Christ, before God our Father. It is clear to us, friends, that God not only loves you very much but also has put his hand on you for something special."  I Thessalonians 1:2-5  (MSG)

I am very thankful for the favor of the Lord upon me, my family, and Celebration Church.  

There's a song I love by Elevation Church (Charlotte, NC) worship ministries called, "You are on Our Side".  I'm teaching it this morning at Celebration and I have a feeling it's going to catch on and be one of our church favorites.

There isn't a YouTube video or anything like that for me to post here.  But I'm going to share the lyrics here.  If you want a great worship CD that will bless you, download or order Kingdom Come by Elevation.  Lyrics to this song are:

You Are On Our Side
 
You promised salvation, to bring Your children home
You promised redemption, that Your love would restore
We can see You all around...we can see You all around...

Chorus:
This is the day
This is the time
When all You spoke
Has come alive
We've seen You move
We've seen You fight
We've seen it all cause You are on our side

Verse 2:
You promised the city would be shaken with Your love
You promised Your spirit, would change the world through us
We can see You all around, we can see You all around


Bridge:   For your glory, your fame Lord, we surrender our lives...

Update on this post this evening:  This morning WAS amazing.  The song became a true anthem for the service and my husband preached the house down.  I am still getting feedback from people about how the first service of the new year touched their lives in a profound way already.  God is up to great things at CC!  Thankful for His favor.
