Pastor Bobby teaches that when we experience disappointments, we grieve them and move forward with today’s message: “How to Deal with Disappointing News.”
Hour of Power 50th Anniversary Clip – On December 15, 2004, Mannheim Steamroller performed “Hallelujah.” This performance aired in Hour of Power program #1662.
A returning Hour of Power favorite, Maiya Sykes is a soloist from Southern California. Maiya attended Yale with a triple major in Political Science, African American studies and Music Composition. Today, she performs “God Provides” (comp: Kirk Franklin) and “We’re Blessed” (comp: Fred Hammond; Tommie Walker; arr: M. Riley). She is joined by backup singers LaNiece Williams, Laura Jones and Raffia, and is accompanied by Dr. Marc Riley and the Hour of Power Orchestra.
The Hour of Power Choir, directed by Dr. Irene Messoloras, goes virtual and performs “The Blessing” (comp: Kari Jobe Cody Carnes Steven Furtick Chris Brown; adapt: M. Riley).
Please show “The Blessing” again. That was beautiful. Beautiful music is so hard to find anymore. Also thank you for this message. I am going through a rough time and needed to know about moving forward instead on on. Thank you.
The program today 8/9 was just what I needed. I lost my son, Jeffrey in 2016 to bone cancer at age 55 and my daughter, Sharon 1 week before Mother’s Day, 5/5 of 2019 to a massive heart attack at age 61. I am not moving on, however, I am moving forward. I lived in Charlotte, NC for 12 years but have now returned home to Pennsylvania where I still have a son, Patrick and other family members. I have moved forward and hope to continue doing just that every day. The way the choir was presented was awesome. They never disappoint. Bobby, I have been watching Hour of Power since the beginning and hope to continue until the Lord calls me home. Keep doing what you do, love the sermons. You have such a beautiful family. You and I are truly blessed.
Bobby thanks so much dor the timely and pithy message on Moving forward. the illustration of the wall being a tree, the story of James Stockdale and his leadership though terrible times in prison and yes, the role of the optimist who might not be a realist and know how to eat the days one at a time…, I might be called a down player person but I think ahead as to what if, and sometimes that bugs people.
And i really enjoyed the choir members, in their choir T-shirts and their own backgrounds. The virtual choir videos have been a blessing in other ways than in a larger setting and their robes.
