I'm not sure if I had this blog when I had such an awakening one day(awhile ago)at church but I know I blogged about it on myspace. There was a service one day that we had where a guy and girl sang a song called "The Revelation Song." There was such a spirit of worship. Pastor Godfrey got up with tears streaming down his face and said "I don't even know what to say...Let's pray." That day he didn't even preach because the Spirit of God was already moving. Something happened in my heart and since that day I feel like my ministry is music. I became faithful in the choir, I started singing on Sunday night praise team, I lead praise in kid's cove (children's church) with 2 other girls. I recently comitted to work in Kid's Praize on Wednesday nights. I'm not saying this so that everyone knows how much I do at church. I'm just saying that's how much I love music and singing. I know God can use music to bring people to Him.
On with the story...tonight I was singing at church. Our song leader had picked out some beautiful songs to go along with communion tonight. 2 of the songs were about the blood of Jesus. Other songs talked about the cross. As I sang these songs and was looking in the face of the audience, I wondered what was behind the face. What's their story? What's their pain? Some faces looked happy. Some faces looked worried, sad. Some looked like they were worshipping. My heart filled with emotion. Mostly joy that I serve a God who heals, protects, loves the unloveable, forgives the unforgiven, gives joy, and peace. Also sadness for those who don't know Him. The true living God. I wish I would be more brave and tell others how to find Him. I thought of those I know that don't know Him and my heart breaks. I will continue to pray for my friends who need a Savior. My favorite lyrics that we sang tonight are this....
Thank you for the cross Lord. Thank for the nail-pierced hands, washed me in your cleansing flow, now all I know, IS your forgiveness and embrace. Worthy is the Lamb, seated on the throne, we crown you now with many crowns, you reign victorious. High and lifted up, Jesus son of God, the darling of heaven crucified...WORTHY IS THE LAMB, WORTHY IS THE LAMB
Thank you Jesus for saving me! Please protect those in the path of the storm. I love you.
