A personal shepherd

in Sing With Me

This Sunday’s set:

We Bring the Sacrifice of Praise/O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing – a medley arrangement as we will sing the last part of Sacrifice of Praise (“and we offer up to You…”) after the hymn too
Trading My Sorrows
When the Roll is Called Up Yonder
Angel Band
Jesus, Lover of My Soul
My Jesus I Love Thee

Quite a few hymns in there, but Angel Band is kind of cool. Got the CD of the movie “Brother, Where Art Thou” and I like it. The lyrics I found were actually on a Grateful Dead site; Jerry Garcia sang it on one of his albums.

The theme is about our personal shepherd. I heard of a man who has a brain tumor and seems to be in remission. But his wife was told no matter how it looks, he will die from it. But I thought “we are all under this sentence of death.” Those with an illness are just a little more aware of it. But we’ve all got only this moment; tomorrow is not guaranteed for anyone. Have you trusted in Jesus? Will you be victorious in death? In my devotion during practice tonight I will share an excerpt from chapter 10 of Max Lucado’s “Traveling Light”; ” ‘The Lord is MY shepherd…’ I pray that your final hours will find you clutching the same hope.”
