“. . . music is supposed to be only a tool, a platter upon which the message is served. It’s not the point. If it becomes the point, you are left with only noise.”
. . . I confess that I have been in the middle of worship, paused, looked at the words on the screen that I had merely reciting, and thought, “Wow, I haven’t lived like that all this week.”
from “Lifestories: Finding God’s Voice of Truth Through Everyday Life”
by Mark Hall (lead singer of Casting Crowns)
Lord, in rehearsal, I want to strive for excellence, to prepare my best offering for you. But I when I sing in a recording session or on a stage, I want to disappear and become your hands, your feet, your voice. Please speak through me and use me as a witness for your grace and glory, in spite of my weaknesses and my sin.
On Sunday mornings, I want to offer you my first fruits.
