My kids Spring Break was last week. I love it when they are out of school…yes, I really do. We had a great week together. We all agreed that the best part was getting to go to the Toby Mac concert at Wild Adventures. In the words of my oldest child..”I just don’t have words to describe how amazing it was!” 🙂
Just being free to worship Jesus and sing along to the music was amazing! Makes me really think how blessed we are to live in a country where we can worship God in public. So many places in this world that cannot…they have to meet secretly..at the risk of death. So sad..
Towards the end of the concert, my children asked if they could go into the aisle to get better pictures. I told them sure! Lo and behold..it was right around the time that Toby Mac and 2 of his band members came into the audience! Oh. My. Goodness. Talk about highlight of their Spring Break!!! My children ended up being right next to him. So close as they put it..”We could see the color of his eyes.”
My youngest child ran back to me when he went back onstage. She exclaimed, “He grabbed my hand! I got to touch him!”
Ding Ding Ding!!!!! Teaching moment!!!!! 🙂
As we were walking out after the concert, my kids were so pumped up! Telling me how close they got..how he touched them..etc.. I stopped and said, “Just think how awesome it will be when we see Jesus in Heaven!!! Can you imagine how exciting it will be..to really touch him..see the color of His eyes..sing and praise Him?!!! It’s going to be amazing!!!!!
Seriously, that is all I could think about. As exciting and awesome and amazing as the concert was..seeing and praising Jesus takes the cake!! It is going to be AMAZING!!! But wait, we can worship and praise and see Jesus all over the place while we are still here on this earth. So what are we waiting for, praise Him now! Get excited!
If you don’t know Jesus personally, Now is the time! What are you waiting for? Jesus is more amazing than concerts (even christian concerts 🙂 ), more amazing than sporting events, more amazing than anything this world has to offer. He is worthy to be praised!!
If you do know my Jesus, then Yay!!! Are you praising him though? Do you find worshipping HIM more amazing than other “things”? Now is the time…
Sorry, I can’t help but get excited or jacked up when talking about my Jesus! I really make no apologies about it. He is worthy to be praised!!! I understand that your taste of Christian music or worship may be different from mine(and that is ok 🙂 ), as long as you praise HIM! 🙂
The meaning of the English word “hallelujah” is translated into “praise God”.
John 4:23-24 (The Message) ~ “It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly being themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself-Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.”
Blessing to you all my friends!
UNTIL NEXT TIME!!!
