Since life as we knew it was shut down around the world because of the pandemic, many wondered: “Where is God? Can anything good come out of this?”
My purpose in writing this post is to encourage you (as I was this week) by a video recording titled, The UK Blessing. Released 8 days ago, it is a virtual choir of people representing more than 60 churches from around the UK. Recorded individually and then combined through the wonder of technology, it was released eight days ago and has been been viewed on Youtube by almost two million people around the globe–1,969,997 as of this morning!
As I watched and felt the pulsing of the message being sung, the words of Isaiah came to mind:
“The people living in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of the shadow of death
a light has dawned.”
What struck me was that even as the world “shelters in place” due to the pandemic, God is on the move!
What I didn’t know (but have since learned) is that there are other such choirs gathering virtually around the globe also singing, The Blessing, over their cities and countries that has crescendoed into a tsunami of praise.*
It is in that spirit that I offer this rendition of The Blessing to encourage your hearts in knowing that God is definitely touching hearts in a myriad of ways:
(If you are seeing God’s hand of blessing move during this otherwise dark time, please share that blessing with others in the comments below.)
All to His Glory!
* I have found several other virtual choirs from South Africa, Fiji and the Solomon Islands, Pittsburg (USA) and others singing God’s praises since then.
