Worship leaders aren’t supposed to mess up while leading – it’s just the way it is supposed to be, right?
Wrong. Well at least partly…
I “brain faded” this morning while leading – not because I didn’t know the words, not because I didn’t know the chords, not because someone distracted me…
…because I “heard” the words I was singing during the song How Great is the Love.
Sure, I “hear” the words all the time, but this morning, the Holy Spirit decided to punch me while leading.
The lyrics that got me were:
The weight of the cross
The curse of our shame
You carried it all and rose from the grave
How great is the love
How great is the love of our Savior
What hit me was the way I trivialize sin and cheapen the Cross…
…forgive me God.
