This past weekend I had the chance to spend some incredible time with some friends, Mark and Suzanne Perry. Mark is the minister of music at Sunrise Baptist Church. I had the privilege to lead a musicians retreat for their church. We had a great time of rehearsals and worship on Saturday, and then it all came together as we worshiped together in two services on Sunday morning and them came back for an evening worship ministry concert. I was honored to get to sing with his choir, play piano with his band and lead his congregation to worship.
As a musician, I am always taking request from people, and I believe that the two most requested songs I have ever been asked to sing are "Midnight Cry" and "Beulah Land". I am honored that people ask me to sing a song for them.
Last week, one of our soloists was not able to be there for the Sunday night worship service at Emmanuel, so they called me and asked me to fill in for their time, so I said ok. It was late Sunday afternoon, when I remembered that I was suppose to have the special music for our Sunday evening worship service, and so as I thought about what the Lord would have me sing, I had remembered just last week someone in our church saying, Rhon if you can, please sing Sweet Beulah Land for me, so that is what I did.
We are blessed at our church to have a wonderful, audio/visual ministry, and so I was able to receive a copy of the song from last Sunday night. I wanted to share it with everyone, and I pray it will be a blessing and encouragement to you as we long for the day to be in the presence of Jesus Christ in Beulah Land.
I am the Worship Pastor at First Baptist Church, Statesboro Georgia.
