Mid-week Worship: Lord, You Are Good

Lord, you are good and your mercy endureth forever!

I admonish my son to consider how blessed he is when I think he's behaving in a selfish, self-centered manner. At times, I have to admonish myself too. We've been through a lot as a family and it would be so easy to dwell on the negative, to focus on the things we've lost, to remember that which is no more.

But God is toooo good for that.

Israel Houghton and New Breed brought something new and fresh to the worship scene in recent years. A mix of Latin, soul, and contemporary Christian music with loads of energy and wonderful instrumentals.

If I can't get near a large body of water, the other thing that never fails to center me and refocus me on God, then an Israel song will serve me well.

Peace & Blessings,

Amen! I LOVE Israel and I love the ocean.

Do you have his album, LIVE FROM ANOTHER LEVEL? It was recorded at my daughter's church, and we are in the picture on the inside. You wouldn't be able to recognize us, because it was taken from behind the crowd. We were in the fourth row right in the front. What a fantastic concert.

Oh yeah, we have all of Israel's albums. The cutest thing is when I hear my 3 or 5 yo start singing one of his songs unconsciously.
