It’s been a full week of final adjustments, rehearsals and meetings as we get ready for the next step for DAVID: the one-man-musical.
All that to say that we are getting closer to being ready for the services this weekend. As I continue through this creative process, some decisions are calculated, some are prompted by feedback and some are based purely on instinct. However, each time I dig into this story I learn more about David and his God. Here are three thoughts…
- The spirit of God is powerful. It empowered David for most of his life. When it left Saul, he was consumed by fear, hate and dark moods that took control of him. The spirit of God, or the absence of him, is powerful.
- The psalms have incredible emotional depth. David cries out for help. He cries out in pain and suffering. He cries out for God to right wrongs. He also sings and dances to the point that some people think he is in danger of losing his reputation. Too many times, we are uncomfortable with dark or intense emotions. David, however, was not one of those people.
- David was a man of faith and trust. You might say that David was a man after God’s own heart! No matter the situation or emotion, David always comes back to a faith in this God he loves.
It all goes down this weekend at Emmanuel Community Church in Fort Wayne, IN. July 8th at 6:30PM and July 9th at 9:30 and 11:00AM. Come see this man of God who sang,
When my spirit grows faint within me,
It is you who know my way…
