The Phil Leng Team: March 2014

Exquisite Pleasure toward Sincere Praise

Exquisite Pleasure toward Sincere Praise

The song started with the single voice of Cara Werner. I closed my eyes and  let her voice wash over me. She has one of those voices that can draw a crowd, fill a stadium, make people stand in line to pay $100 to listen.

Overlake Christian Church Worship

I was enjoying every note, every nuance, every tremolo. 

"There's nothing worth more

That will ever come close

Nothing can compare

You're our Living Hope

Your Presence Lord"

I was thinking of her. We have known her for some 20 years. First a young teenager singing humbly as a soloist supported by a 60 piece orchestra and a 250 voice choir. Then falling in love with her handsome and noble husband Jack. Now a mother of two - soon to be three. 

Then it changed inside of me. 

The band came in, and the rest of the singers

"Holy Spirit You are welcome here

Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere

Your glory God is what our hearts long for

To be overcome by Your presence Lord"

 I lifted my hands and joined in. I was still enthralled by the music, but now I was communing directly to God. 

Tears came. 

"I've tasted and seen

Of the sweetest of loves

Where my heart becomes free

And my shame is undone

Your presence Lord" 

The band. The singers. The entire congregation. My heart joined the other hearts in worship of God. It was a plea. A prayer. A praise. 

"Holy Spirit You are welcome here

Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere

Your glory God is what our hearts long for

To be overcome by

Your presence Lord" 

The meaning continued to reverberate over me even while the applause died down and the service moved on.

Amen.
