What in the WORLD is going on?

Obviously - it's not in the WORLD - but God is giving us a glimpse (mind you a very MINUSCULE glimpse) of what Heaven will be like! Why were we created? To worship Him! Yesterday and Last nights services were unbelievable! It was AWESOME. We sang a song yesterday and the words were, "In Awe of You we Worship". Pastor talked about how we don't use that word very often, but that is how we should look at God. says Awe is "A mixed emotion of reverence, respect, dread, and wonder inspired by authority, genius, great beauty, sublimity, or might". WOW - does that do a good job of describing our emotions about God or what?

Again, another song we sang said this, "Turn your ear to heaven and hear the noise inside...the sound of angel's AWE, the sound of angel's songs - and all this for a King - we could join and sing - All to Christ our King".

Another song we sang talks about "How Great is our God" - and "He wraps Himself in light, and darkness tries to hide- and trembles at His voice". That's how Awesome our God is.

A good friend of mine was happy for Pastor, Libby, Shawn & I, when we came back from the Eagles Wings conference last weekend - with our "new way of freedom in our worship" - but expressed that "it wasn't for her". Well - God showed up last night again, and told her "YES IT IS"...and because of her obedience, she was blessed with a Heavenly language - and a "new freedom in her worship".

God is taking us to places we've only dreamt of - more than that even! Are you ready to go? Are you going to hesitate and sit back & "wait & see" - or are you going to JOIN IN and be on the frontlines? Can you tell I'm excited? GOD IS SO GOOD. Alright - now is the time to, "Turn our gaze to heaven and raise a joyous noise.....Oh Praise Him"!!!! (David Crowder)

Last year at about this time, I said something one night about The Purpose Driven Church, and that it was time for the church to get focused on becoming "The Presence Driven Church."
That thought has never left me since that day. Over the years of serving God and being in the ministry, I have come to a conclusion that if we would just make it a practice to get in the presence of a Holy God every day, it would so change us that we could not help but change the world around us.
I believe this is beginning to take hold at our church, and at many others across this land.

There was a song that Julie Meyer sang at the conference that said,
"I hear you say to me, "Come and sit with me awhile. Come and sit with me.
Just to be with me awhile. Come and sit and be with me."

I believe that is the voice of God calling out to us, "Come and sit with me."

How powerful it is that when we think we've experience all there is to experience in God...There's more and then there's much more!

What a joy it is to walk in this journey...not profound, but a simple journey that leads besides still waters, into rushing mighty winds, to her still small voices, and the roar of a lion...What an awesome God we walk with!
