“Worship through music is something that is difficult to do. I don’t mean just the physical effort of singing or playing an instrument. Some days you just don’t feel like singing. That can be really tough for me in my profession of church worship music. Sometimes my worship is forced, but I have to remind myself that that is the sign of a good habit developing in my life.”
“God’s sanctifying work in my life has come by the cutting and crushing power of His word.“
“And in that moment of yielding, laid out on a table, exposed, broken and hurting, I recognized God’s voice, calling me to relax in His care and accept the pain without knowing when relief will come.”
“Repentance is humbling and challenging, but it is a gift. It is a gift to be humbled and tell my children that I was wrong and ask for their forgiveness. It is a mercy to apologize to a friend and find grace in their love.”
During Lent this year at City Church we will focus our attention on the theme of Habits of Life. As an accompaniment to our Sunday services, we will publish an ancillary online devotional. Similar to devotionals we have produced in the past during the seasons of Advent and Lent, this year’s Habits of Life devotional is designed to help form you more fully into Christian maturity.
