Holiest of Holies on 04.07.13

This weekend, we began with the defiant celebration of the old spiritual “Turn Me Around”.  I love this song, and we have a ton of fun with our Cee-Lo inspired arrangement.  After this declaration, we turned our attention upward to the Almighty God and sang “Praise to the Lord the Almighty” and “10000 Reasons”, which built to a really holy moment.  With full, grateful hearts, we sat down.

Laura and the team launched into “Holiest of Holies”, which is a fantastic song by Eastlake Community Church.  Here is the song, followed by the worship experience afterward…

You can download this song (and the entire album) for FREE here.  The whole album is great.  (Here are a few reasons why I connect with their music.)

The lyric of “If I keep my eyes on Your eyes” at the end of “Holiest of Holies” guided us seamlessly into the prayer song “Open the Eyes of My Heart”.  In this space of openness, we asked God to speak to us through the scriptures.  It was almost like we were saying “Okay, God, we are open.  Please help us to see what You are really like.  Show us more of who You are.”

Sing: Open the eyes of our hearts, Lord…

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!
“Who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counselor?”
“Who has ever given to God,
that God should repay them?”
For from him and through him and for him are all things.
To him be the glory forever! Amen.
(Romans 11:33-36)

Sing: Open the eyes of our hearts, Lord…

“To whom will you compare me?
Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One.
Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one
and calls forth each of them by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing.

The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
(Isaiah 40:25-28)

Sing: To see You high and lifted up…

The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
(Psalm 19:1-2)

Sing: To see You high and lifted up…

Holy Holy Holy.

Peace,
Aaron
