This is a special time of year for me for a lot of reasons.  I think about everything God has done in my life…everything He has saved me from…redeemed me from…and ultimately renewed me to…and it’s Glorious!

One of the special memories was born 13 years ago on Good Friday, when I proposed to Wendy in a small church after giving my testimony.  All of my family was there, and I still thank God she cried out a “yes” to my biggest question.  One year later we were married on Easter weekend, and we spent our first day married on Easter.  It has been an amazing journey ever since.

I pray you are having a great Easter Sunday.  I hope you see a risen Savior who loved you best at your worst.  I hope you arise new today, and celebrate what a Glorious picture of Love He painted for us!  As I play “Glorious” this morning in church I will be thinking about all of these things.  I have to privilege and honor of working with guys like Paul Baloche.  This album came out last year after Easter, so this year it will be the first Easter many will probably experience it.  Take a listen to the song story, and watch Paul and the band play it live.  Enjoy all that God has blessed you with, and celebrate a Glorious…Risen Savior!

Breathe In & Smile Out,

Ephesians 1:18

“I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,”

Quote for the day:

“‘Cause when we see You, we find strength to face the day
In Your presence all our fears are washed away” — Paul Baloche “Hosanna”

The Power of Music

29 06 2008

I’m on my way back from Creation Fest Northeast.  What a blast!!! So many bands, so many stories, so many people gathered to celebrate and praise our Creator.  Check out Video Rocket for recaps from the festival and some daily blogs/promos from Worth Dying For.

The most amazing part of the festival to me was simply the power of music.  From all ages, races, sex, denominations, and any other category you can think of….music transcends them all.  The power of music to me is in the connection.  The connection meets you where you are and becomes the soundtrack for the moment.  When you combine that with music that connects with our Creator…then you see a power at whole new level.

For me personally, beyond the stage and the bands…i witnessed a group of 40,000+ stop for a moment to light candles as an act of worship.  The music was simple, the lights were off, and this was the view from the stage as Paul Baloche and Amy Grant led worship.

Light of The World

There are a ton of other moments to blog…but with 2 hours of sleep and sitting quite red-eyed in the ATL airport…this is about all I can muster up.  By far the highlight of weekend though, enjoy.
