He lifted me
Yesterday’s Piazza concert was not a warm fuzzy experience for me, I’m afraid. After standing around in the rain like a muppet during soundcheck we decided that sharing the bass playing was not going to work. Plus, my voice gave up during “Holonofatsa”, so I was left feeling decidedly flat afterwards.
A new day, though.
To Westwood this morning for room checks, and “He Reigns” going round in my head, I just felt the whole thing lifted from me.
You often read how some ancient song “sounds as fresh as if it was written yesterday”. Well, try this 3000-year old song:
I waited patiently for the LORD
He turned to me and heard my cry
He lifted me from the pit [which I had dug myself into]
and gave me a new song to sing…
(Psalm 40 – bit in square brackets added by me)
Our God is an Awesome God.
