Today began our first of four in a series titled The Beatles Christmas – A New Twist On the Christmas Story.

Fortress 144Being in a military town, they really understand all things when it comes to speaking about God being our fortress and that He is our protector. This song is a great song based on the first verse of Psalm 144 – Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle. Regardless of what you believe, we are in a war; a spiritual battle and the greatest lie the devil wants us to believe is that he doesn’t exist. Therefore we won’t try to fight back. He exists and we ARE in a battle. So armor up and allow God to train your hands for war!

You Never Let GoGod promises us that He’ll never leave us nor forsake us. (Hebrews 13;5, Deut. 31:6)

Blessed Be Your Name – God is good and He defines what good is. No matter what God presents us with we can always be assured it’s a good thing for us. Even when we think that it’s not a good thing and try not to accept it, it is a good thing because God can only give good things. Even when He takes things away from us we can be assured that God is taking things from us for our good. He may have growth in mind for us but we can’t grow if we’re hanging onto something that is hindering our growth. God intends good for everything He has for us. Blessed be your name Lord!

Great Is Thy Faithfulness – God is always faithful. Even when we are not. He knows not how to be unfaithful. He is truth and once again, He will never leave us. He’s got our backs, for His glory. He wants to make Himself known through us. He does that by sticking with us. He is always faithful. Semper Fi.

Help! – I’m gonna admit it and move on from this wreck of a blunder. Sometimes as worship leaders or musicians we have so much on our minds we forget the simple things. This song starts out in Am with everybody coming in at once and the vocals come in on the first note. I made a beginner’s mistake and forgot to get a key check for my vocals so when we started out, I couldn’t find the note to sing in. Not once but twice. Finally, I got it on the third try.

It was a stupid mistake I made. But the song sounded great. I’m so proud of our worship team for working so hard on the Beatles songs we’re doing this month. Heather stepped up and done a tremendous job on the tambourine. Cassandra knocked it out of the park on bass and Thomas kept us moving with a great drum line. Good job guys. I’ll try not to let ya down on anymore Beatles songs.

If your in Clarksville and want to join us for our Beatles Christmas, we’d love to have ya. Next up, Nowhere Man!

    I will encourage you with Beatles song names. You got by “With A Little Help From Your Friends” we were happy to “Help” you are doing an awesome job of leading us on this “Magical Mystery Tour” and so far nobody sees you as “The Fool On The Hill” this style of worship is a “Revolution” and as far as your mistakes, “Let It Be” and if you get lost again, just “Twist & Shout” your way out of it. Had enough yet? I can do this all day!!!!
