Tonight I went to a concert where Kuttless, and Casting Crowns. The crowd was huge! Not a single seat left empty in a church that holds thousands. I am not sure how many but I know it was at least a few thousand. The church was huge and the staff was nice. I was really excited they are two of my favored bands. I found my seat and waited for them to come on. Everyone was so happy. If you have never been to a Christian concert and you want to I recommend a “Casting Crowns” one. Not only was there anointing it was fulfilling in many aspects.
* First, seeing a crowd so large was amazing, not only because of the numbers but also the fact that they were all, well mostly Christians. Seeing a crowd of thousands joining in worship was amazing. I was in complete utter Awe… I began to wonder how many out there were / are called into the ministry, or have gifts from God. And out of those how many are not and should be sharing them. Do you have something God has given you or has called you to do? Are you doing it? If not then why? What is stopping you from following his will on your life. He is more then worth for us to serve. Are you afraid? God choose you and he will give you the tools to do the task. I have been worrying so much about how to fulfill God’s calling on me. Thinking I am not good enough. But March God has been working on that in me and now more then ever I am regretting not following God sooner. Don’t miss your chance to do God’s work. He called you for a reason so give it your best shot and trust Him to help you through the task. He will and your life will change for the better.
Second, If all us Christians could put our differences aside and come together like I saw tonight we would have so much power over evil. The anointing was so strong, so think I could see chains falling off of people all around me, I could feel Evil loosing his battles in the presence of the Lord. He was there. Imagine the millions we could save and affect if we could come together like this on a daily basis. Think of the millions of souls we could save. So why arn’t we? Just like one of their songs. “If we are the Body, why aren’t his feet walking, why aren’t his arms reaching??” Have you heard it?? Very good motivating Song.. I know I am trying to research others and spread God’s love. Are you?
We need to step up, the end of times is near, I do not believe the 2012 stuff, but the prophecies in the bible about the earth quakes and floods are coming true.. There is a hunger all around us and if it is not filled by God they go after what they think will fill it. I do not want to see my loved ones going to the “dark Side” you may call it. If one person can save just one other person, could you imagine the number of lives we could save if we started standing together, spreading God’s word and be living examples? Could you image the anointing????? The numbers of prayers that would be answered?
Where do I start. I guess at the beging. I was born with Trunkis Arteriosis. (1) I was sent home to die, but lived to be 7months. So a dr, did a experiment surgery on me. He said I would need to have surgery every 2 years for updates.(2) However I didn’t need one till I was 12. They put in hemograh valves. (using pig tissue) During surgery the heart and lung machine failed for a few seconds and I had a major stoke. I had burst blood vessels on all four lobes of my brain. I was declared brain dead. They said if I ever woke up I would be paralyzed. My liver shut down, and I was not breathing on my own. I had my family and friends praying over me. My mom was reading bible verses over me and two weeks latter she read. “The devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy. But I have come to bring life and to bring it Abundantly. John 10:10” I opened my eyes. My mom was in happy shock, then she asked me if she wanted me to read more bible verses that I liked, if yes to squeeze her hand. And I did. I had a full recovery after being brain dead and in a coma for two weeks. The neurologist never came back to see me he did not want to admit it happened. He wrote in my official record “To every one’s surprise she awoke.” (3) I was great till I was 17 when they found your body rejects certain tissues as a teen. So they decided I needed another surgery. This time they rebuilt my heart with donated tissue. I was the 3rd person in the world to have this done. During recovery I caught (R.D.S.) repository distress syndrome and one of my lungs collapsed. They decided that I should be put in an artificial coma to recover. it took almost 2 moths. I woke up on Christmas eve. (Christmas has since been extremely important to me.) They said I would never fully recover from that, but I have been fine. (4) It was my 20th birthday, I had a new car, redone. I was going on a road trip. My engine suddenly died and I was able to pull over to the side of the road. My friend volunteered to get out and look while I the rest of us the car. I heard “Get out of the car, it is on fire.” So I told every one to get out. And there was a gas leak dripping on to the eghast. The car burst int to flames almost as soon as we got out. Thankfully a semi truck had seen the fire under my car, and had called the fire department before we had even pulled over. We were all ok. (Strangely the tile and other important papers in the car were not damaged. (5) I forget the exact year I was about twenty three, and I was having bad pains for several moths. One day while driving I was in a car accident. And my pains were still there. I had just moved and went to a new dr. The dr said it was my gallbladder, and I needed it out immediately. Thanks to that surgery they found internal bleeding which had developed from the car accident. That there were no common sings too. (6) And most recent, I was about 25 on a generic brand of blood thinner. And I started feeling weird, lost control of my mortar skills in my hand. I told my sister to take me to the hospital. I told the woman I was having a stoke. She didn’t believe me at first. So I started praying out loud. Suddenly I started loosing my speech too. So she knew I was not lying and I was rushed back. They told me I had suffered another major stroke. I am one of the rare pople that the generic brand does not work on. I fully recovered within 5days. I from that day on I promised God, that I would tell others of what he has done for me. No one understood how or why I recovered so fast when I really should not have.
But I know it is because God takes care of his children. Which I have been reminded of recently. So that is my story.. And I am writing a more detailed version in a book. Feel free to tell others if you like. Psalms 1o4 is a good chapter reminding us who God is and that cares for us, down to the littlest detail.
1Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. 2Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain: 3Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind: 4Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire: 5Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever. 6Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains. 7At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away. 8They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them. 9Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.10He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills. 11They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst. 12By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches. 13He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works. 14He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; 15And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man’s heart. 16The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted; 17Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house. 18The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies. 19He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down. 20Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth. 21The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God. 22The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens. 23Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening. 24O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. 25So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts. 26There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein. 27These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season. 28That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good. 29Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust. 30Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth. 31The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works. 32He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke. 33I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. 34My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD. 35Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.
“The eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love.” ~Psalms 33:18
“Long ago the Lord said to Israel:“I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love.With unfailinglove I have drawn you to myself.” Jeremiah 31:3
Then I said,“O Lord, God of heaven, the great and awesome God who keeps his covenant of unfailinglove with those who love him and obey his commands,
But I trust in your unfailinglove.I will rejoice because you have rescued me.
Let your unfailinglove surround us, Lord,for our hope is in you alone.
Your unfailinglove is better than life itself;how I praise you!
I cried out, “I am slipping!”but your unfailinglove, O Lord, supported me.
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne.Unfailinglove and truth walk before you as attendants.
The Lord is merciful and compassionate,slow to get angry and filled with unfailinglove.
The Lord is compassionate and merciful,slow to get angry and filled with unfailinglove.
I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailinglove,for you have seen my troubles,and you care about the anguish of my soul.
For he loves us with unfailinglove;the Lord’s faithfulness endures forever. Praise the Lord!
Praise God, who did not ignore my prayeror withdraw his unfailinglove from me.
O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,so full of unfailinglove for all who ask for your help.
But I am like an olive tree, thriving in the house of God.I will always trust in God’s unfailinglove.
Satisfy us each morning with your unfailinglove, so we may sing for joy to the end of our lives.
Do notice a pattern, do you understand better? God’s gives us Unfailing Love. I am so glad I have that. I hope you realize you have it too. If not, I hope you lean that soon.
