choir practice

Once a month or so I help with choir practice at church by running the computer that shows the words to the songs on the screens for those on stage to see. Tonight they practiced a new song that I just absolutely love. It's called "You'll Come" and I like how the choir director put it. He called it a "song of deliverance." Jeremiah 29:12-13 says, "When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I'll listen. When you come looking for me, you'll find me. Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I'll make sure you won't be disappointed" (Message). When we cry out to God for help, He promises to be there for us and I think this song does a good job of capturing that.

  1. I can help but be in awe of Brooke Fraser's song writing abilities. This song adds to my over the top strong feelings for her. (i'm not creepy!)
    I LOVE that scripture in Jeremiah, Bethel as my witness, i quote that scripture too often for her poor ears. I love the meaning of this song, along with the scripture she reads before singing- It is only a matter of time, He will Come.
    deliverance is right, my friend.
