A Story of Growing Through Service

Bethlehem Kennington

The Lord has used being part of the worship team to teach me a lot of what it means to worship Him in every season.

There have been many times this past year when I had to lead worship during some emotionally stressful week. Each time, despite being tempted to call out, God has used it to teach me to take my burden to Him in worship.

It has left me more dependent on Him to make my circumstances smaller and to get greater glimpses of Heaven, experiencing His presence with our church family. I get to surrender my burden to Him through worship and be joyful despite my circumstances. Elisabeth Elliot said it best: “Joy is not the absence of suffering but the presence of God.”

It has been such a gift to me to have a front-row seat seeing people in His presence.
