Sunday Songs: Bonus Day

If I haven't mentioned it ten times already during this series, I'll say it again: music speaks to me. As we ponder reaching our cities this week, let these two songs inspire you.

I love the lyrics in God of This City...greater things are yet to come, greater things are still to be done in this city...Yesterday I had a homeless man tell me that he couldn't forget a sweet face like mine. I wanted to put him in my pocket and take him home. I feel like whatever I do to make a difference can never be enough, then I remember You are God of THIS city, and greater things are yet to come.

Break Every Chain reminds me that only through Jesus will change come. He alone can break the chains that bind us...the chains that bind certain sections of my city...The light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not overcome it. We sang this song, Break Every Chain, in church this morning; it was my prayer over neighborhoods that are so mired in hopelessness, so many problems, just a mile from my house. God, only You can be the difference. Send Your light, Lord, and nothing can stand against it.
