Feeling down? This is a common thing among worship leaders, so you are not alone!
This podcast will be dealing with the whole issue of feeling down, and how you can raise your spirits. Feeling down as a worship leader is not a unique experience, as the guys share in this episode.
So why are you feeling down? It might be because your worship leading has fallen short, it might be because of internal conflicts within the worship team or it could be something completely unrelated, like conflict at home or work.
Maybe you’re just going through a hard time in an area of your life that is affecting your ministry. Whatever the cause, you need to recognise that how you feel has no bearing on God’s plans for your life.
Many times we feel down although after a great success, which is exactly what happened to Elijah after the victory on Mount Carmel. (1 Kings 18-19). From such a great high, he feels so low he wanted to die, and sometimes worship leaders can feel that way… Frequently.
And like Elijah, many times we will fill especially low after we’ve had a great success. If we rely on our feelings, our life will be up and down continuously, so we have to look beyond our feelings at what God says about us, take our eyes off our circumstances and place them firmly on the Lord.
To quote an old song, “Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full and His wonderful face, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.”
So as you listen to this podcast today, pause to reflect on the goodness of God in your life, the calling that he has for you as a worship leader and train yourself to look up rather than look down, look to him rather than to be overwhelmed by your circumstances.
So we decided to put the special pod cast together for you to encourage you, bless you and remind you that God has a plan and purpose for your life, regardless of how you feel.
