Last night was full of so much bliss.
Have you ever been to a concert?
If you have, I bet you’ve been to some where the energy was lacking…
Last night was nothing like that. My night started at 5pm.
I got VIP entry to chat up the members of Rend Collective & Moriah Peters.
It was pretty sweet.
But the real party started once the doors opened for everyone else
& they finally made there way one by one on stage.
This was by far one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to.
Rend Colletive had such a presence on stage & it was powerful.
The way they use their gifts to stir hearts of the World is incredible.
There were many moments of emotion through out the night for sure,
but one inparticular will stay with me.
I was in the middle of just singing & crying out to the Lord when all of of sudden,
the lead singer asked us to put our arms around the people on each sides of us & jump.
Now, I don’t know about you…. but initially I was like, ” I don’t know her!” haha
But I was like, I do… I do.. She’s my sister in Christ… So I just should.
Within seconds, the entire room was a wave of praise… moving in unison,
singing out to the creator.. it was perfect.
But in those moments of worship, I felt completley free.
I was so joyful, the girl next to me (found out her name was Jessica) started laughing hyserically.
We both were so in awe as to what we just felt. But really, the energy in that one little moment…
It was so true, it was so pure, & it was so refreshing.
I haven’t felt that joy in a long time worshipping the Lord.
But in those moments, I couldn’t stop laughing… & it was all thanks to him.
He had lifted all the pain, all the angst, all my troubles in that moment..
& he was ever present. I hope I can feel this in worship more often.
Because to just let him overwhelm you, is the best thing you can do.
I cried, I laughed, & I danced, I danced, I danced.
Letting all my emotions run freely & to just love on the one who loved me first?
That was beautiful.
So thankful for last night.
If you have a chance to get close to a community that Loves on the creator of us,
do it. If you don’t have one, find one. & if you ever need someone to show you you haven’t been
real with God in worship–go to a christian concert. Do it.
How often can you have the best night on a Friday & worship God at the same time?
I don’t know, but we did in Chicago last night. We did.
& I learned to be fearless in fighting for his love, for his people, his Kingdom.
Do not feel ashamed if the World doesnt accept you, it shunned him first.
I am so in love with our maker. How lucky are we to know him? To have him?
I choose him every time. No matter what. Who do you choose?
Until next time…
