Last month, I had the nerve wrecking experience of performing my first solo in the Potters House Christian Fellowship Church choir. Nervous as I was, I was really excited, and the most important thing to me was that my husband be there to listen, critique and cheer me on(of course I didn't tell him this as we women like to do, he should already know, right?) Well Sunday night rolls around, the worship portion of the service ends, the pastor takes up the offering and its time... My husband is no where to be seen. I fret and worry in my head. I mouth to my sister in law sitting in the second row, "Where's Marcus?" She shakes her head that she doesn't know and does she want me to call him? I nod yes and begin to introduce the song. God really helped me. He gave me the words I needed to encourage the audience, and He helped me complete the song I had worked so hard on. I take my seat in my pew. Marcus is still no where to be found. I can't focus on anything the pastor is saying. My heart is pounding and I'm so brokenhearted that he can be so insensitive. Didn't he know I needed him there? A tear slips down my cheek and a slip out to the restroom before anyone notices. After the service, I find my husband standing at the door greeting people as they leave. I can't even speak to him I'm so hurt. Then he smiles and says, "Good job baby, you sounded good." I just look at him. "Thank you..... Where were you??" "I was up in the sound booth, I heard the whole thing from there, good job." I still cannot speak. I walk away with a confused look on my face still trying to recover from my emotions. Up in the sound booth? He was there all along??... Then it hits me. So was God. How many times do we point our finger at God and say, "Where were you?" Only to discover years later that He was right there all along. It's almost like he's saying, "What are you talking about? I was up in the sound booth the whole time." I eventually did forgive my husband for the sin that he did not commit. When will we forgive God for being the loving Father that he is?
What better way to enjoy the holiday than to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. New Covenant had the opportunity to perform in Coronado for The Potters House Christian Fellowship's annual Labor Day Picnic. Friends, food, laughter, music and wrap it all up with a baptism for new Christians. We are so proud to be a part of this incredible ministry. There was a young woman baptized who was saved at a New Covenant concert in El Cajon only a week before. Oh how wonderful God is!
Follow us on youtube to hear Love Fails performed at this concert.
