One of the greatest honors I have as a writer of worship songs is when I get to bring songs that I have written before the congregation. I am humbled and honored when a room full of people (or, not so full) are able to connect with God through words that I wrote.
When I think about the opportunities I have had, like recently at Victory @ Hamilton Mill, I am not only honored, but I am reminded of the huge responsibility I have as a "Worship Songs Pastor" (working title) to take my work seriously. Yes, it's exciting. Yes, it's really really cool. And, most of all, it is an important work I am to do reverently unto the Lord. Writing worship songs is an act of worship itself, and not to be taken lightly.
"Be Lifted High" was a result of personal, real, prayer-closet worship. Because of this, I am convinced that God has given me opportunities to sing and lead it for thousands of people. More and more I want to be mindful of my role as "Worship Songs Pastor", which begins off of the platform and behind closed doors.
So, it is with great honor that I share this video with you, from a recent worship set at Victory @ Hamilton Mill.
