I thought I would pick up where I left off the other week in my previous posting called "Thought #1"
It has been a few weeks since I returned from my whirlwind weekend which looked a little like this....Friday night concert in Pittsburgh, PA for the LWML National Convention, a Saturday 12pm set in Prescott Valley, AZ and then an evening concert opening for Casting Crowns, followed by a next day fly out to San Antonio TX to speak and sing to 27,000+ youth at the Alamodome for the National Youth Gathering. Wow, looking back, I think about all that God packed into that weekend and I am blown away.
Since then, I have been on the road traveling with family and now I sit, finally processing all that God did. I stand amazed.
There is still so much inside my heart that I can't express, so I am going to get to the punch and tell you what blew me away the most. It pretty simple actually.
God answered my prayer!
My prayer was this.."Lord, may your Spirit pierce the hearts of your people the way that YOU desire and not the way that I may want You to. Will you change them, will you change me and speak to us what you want us to hear and not the points that I want to get across"
He did it! The stories that I heard in response to my words and songs that weekend confirmed that only God could have spoken to their hearts in such a way, only God through His Spirit can sink that deep.
Only God could have set me on stage during the worst migraine of my life (and I have had many) and taken the pain away for that moment so that I could sing with all my heart to share His message through song. Only God! Only God!
As I said to a crowd of 27,000 as they cheered when I told them of the victory in Christ. I exclaimed "THAT'S OUR GOD!"
That is our God, That is what He does.... Our God, Our God!!
Amen and Amen!
Now, if you like pictures and fake hashtags..#ENJOY!

A collection of writings from a life based on the truth that about midnight anything can happen.
As an imperfect servant of the Lord, I often feel I am fumbling my way through life, looking upward for guidance and outward to love. So, I write about it, to break up the noise in my head.
