Come to my Rescue

>> Sunday, November 2, 2008

This morning in church I was blessed tremendously by the worship leader and the sermon. I used a part of Greg's sermon as part of my NaNo story today and a song from worship, Rescue from Newsong. I strayed from his sermon to go with my story, of course. It's not exactly what he said. Just so you know that:) I'm going to share with you a part of what I wrote this afternoon for NaNo, just so you have some idea of what I'm writing. Hope you enjoy. Maybe I'll do this every once in a while. Not sure. We shall see. Right now I've hit my goal of 1600 words a day. I'm now at 3,369! Woohoo! Thank you for praying. I really really appreciate it! Now, let the story begin:

Come to My Rescue
A guest worship leader was brought in for the morning service. It was time for a change. Dave and Jenn both knew that. They were trying to bring the congregation into a more contemporary service and having this young man lead would do a great deal in helping that along.
Besides that, Jenn needed a day off. She was doing so much in the church and was paid nothing. She needed a time to heal. They both sat in the front pew. They stood together, hand in hand. Benjamin, the young worship leader, stood at the keyboard. His face lifted to Heaven, He began a song, Rescue by Newsong:
You are the Source of light
I can't be left behind
No one else will do
I will take hold of You
Dave put his arm around Jenn’s side and drew her in close. Benjamin continued to sing:
I need You, Jesus
Come to my rescue
Where else could I go?
There’s no other name by which I am saved
Dave and Jenn’s free arms went into the air.
Capture me with grace
I will follow You
My heart is Yours for life
I need Your hand in mine
No one else will do
Lord, I put my trust in You

At the next chorus they joined hands and held them high in the air. Together they were in this struggle with their church and community. Tears streamed down both their faces. One, tears of a struggle he knew nothing about and could do nothing but pray; the other, tears of frustration and loneliness.
I need You Jesus
Come to my rescue
Where else could I go?
There’s no other name by which I am saved
Oh capture me with grace
I will follow You
This world has nothing for me…
(I will follow You)
This world has nothing for me
I need You Jesus
Both felt a great sense of encouragement as the song ended. They let go hands and dried tears. Dave had no idea what healing was going on behind him but he knew that God was working on he and his wife.
Dave moved to the pulpit after the last song. He was finally able to see the faces of the people. A few had tears in their eyes. Some looked to be stone-cold. He couldn’t worry about that for now. He had to continue on with his plans for the sermon.
Sorry, will stop there. Hope you enjoyed a small piece
of my NaNo:) I really really appreciate your prayers and support.
