Anthems: Week 3

"If we are in the midst of upheaval, we are in the moment of opportunity." - Pastor Andrew Zemianek. In this 3rd installment of the Anthems series, Pastor Andrew relates Ed Sheeran's song 'Castle on the Hill" to Psalm 27 in which David reminds us that in every dark situation, there is light. Pastor Andrew goes on to share a personal situation in which he thought he would lose his grandmother & his girlfriend in the same weekend. However, the dark situation of his grandmother's hospitalization actually worked to bring him closer to his then girlfriend, now wife. When we choose to see our light, Jesus, in the dark situations as Ed Sheeran chose to remember the castle on the hill, a positive memory from his childhood as opposed to the negatives, we are much more likely to receive the blessings God has for us.
