Youth in Focus

Offerings to our worthy God

Jun 2014    

Great is the Lord Mighty in power So rich is His mercy And strong is His hand

“Day by Day” – Nigel Goh and Kevin Lam

Never have words rung so true. This past year, Truthmin has had the great privilege of putting together Offerings: You are Worthy, a CD project, comprising songs that have been lovingly written and sung by our very own Methodist youth. Throughout the entire project, we’ve been astounded by how good God has been!

Doing something for the first time always brings its fair share of excitement, exhilaration and of course, trepidation. The experience of putting together a professionally-produced CD of this magnitude was no different. However, we clearly saw the hand of God guide us through the entire project – from choosing the right producer, singers etc., right down to the CD artwork.

Over the years, we’ve had the great privilege of being privy to songs that have been birthed in our own Methodist youth ministries. We’ve seen first-hand how God has been moving in our churches. God gives gifts freely and He

has given some of us beautiful worship songs. What better way to connect to God than with what has been authentically birthed from our own walks with God?

One of the things that stood out clearly throughout the project was a sense of oneness. A coming together of like-minded people from different Methodist churches, whose sole aim was to see God be praised.

The goal of this project has always been clear – to connect youth with God through worship music.

We’ve seen first-hand how talented our youth are. Let’s continue to encourage them to express their faith through the gifts and talents that God has given. After all, that is what He asks of us – to bring an offering of praise unto Him.

Let my life be an anthem of Your love Lifting You higher forever, Jesus
Shine Your light, Let all the world see Show Your glory,
Let all the earth sing As one we break through the darkness We will be Your witnesses
So all may see and give God all the glory!

“Shine” – Paul Ooi
