How Great is Our God

Yesterday morning James called me and asked me if I still wanted to go to the Chris Tomlin concert. . .I hadn't planned on it,because I was scheduled to work last night. . .But I thought I would give my boss a call and see if she would let me come in an hour or so late. I called her and she was perfectly fine with me doing that. . So the work situation was taken care of. . .My mom said she would take the kids to play practice and pick them up. . .One more thing that needed to be taken care of before we get to go. . .Tickets. . . . We decided to go on over to Freedom Hall and just buy tickets at the ticket booth. . . When we arrived there was an older man and woman standing in front of the building. .
"Are you all in need of tickets?" they asked us.
"Yes, we need 2. . " I answered quickly. . .
"We had a couple of people not show up that were supposed to meet us, we will sell you these for $20--they are selling them for $30 at the window"the man explained to us.
"Great, "James said, and then realized that we didn't have any cash. . .
"Sorry I can't accept debit cards." the gentleman laughed.
So we thanked the couple and headed on over to get in line. . . and then a young man came over to us and said "Sir?". James and I both turned to him, and he said , "Are you guys committed?" and James said "Yes, sir". The man asked us where we went to church, and James went on to tell him he was a sunday school teacher. . . He reached in his pocket and handed us 2 tickets. James started to speak--and the man quickly said,"You don't need to know my name or where I go to church--Go on in there and worship OUR Lord. " This story only gets better. . .We were so excited to get into the concert for free that we didn't even notice where our tickets were. . .so after we got inside where it was warm(because it was FREEZING!) We looked at the table, bought us a couple of t-shirts , went to the restroom, and headed towards our seats. . .Looking at the tickets--the seats said FLOOR. . . Hmmmm. . I thought, that could be good or bad. . .If you were way back at the back of the section--Short people like me wouldn't be able to see anything. . . So the Usher led us to our seats and we were on the 6th Row!!! Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Can you believe it? I was so excited!!! (Now for the bad news. . .I didn't take my camera). . .

Oh well. . .I was too busy worshipping our Lord and Savior to think about pictures. This was one of the most AWESOME worship experiences that I think I have ever been to. To be in a place where so many people come together to worship-not thinking about denomination. Not thinking about what others might think if they raise their hands in the air. Only giving 100% of their hearts, minds, and body to praise Him. One of the songs Chris Tomlin sings is How Great is our God. Here are the lyrics

The splendor of a King,Clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice,
All the earth rejoice
He wraps himself in light,
And darkness tries to hide
And trembles at his voice,
And trembles at his voice
How great is our God,
sing with me How great is our God,
and all who sing How great, How great Is our God
Age to age he stands
And time is in His Hands
Beginning and the End,
Beginning and the End
The Godhead, Three in one Father, Spirit, Son
The Lion and the Lamb,
The Lion and the Lamb
When we consider how vast our universe is--it makes us realize How Great is Our God. . . Like the song says, Darkness trembles at HIS voice. . . In all of this--he created us in HIS image. He loves us and wants us to LOVE him. Completly. Fully. With all of our hearts. Daily. And thrive to be more like him. Even after working last night, I am still worshipping in my heart this morning. Good night. Or to most of you all Good Morning.
