You called us out, out of the darkness Into your love, into your light Grace upon grace, beauty for ashes You come to us, we come alive
“Your Spirit” by Tasha Cobbs Leonard
I went to my first gospel concert this past Saturday. It happened on a whim, my friend Lilly asked me if I want to go and I decided I want to go. They say the best things happen spontaneously and I can agree with this saying.
It was late afternoon, the weather was nice and everything was in line with our good mood. I felt comfortable even though this was going to be my first time being at such type of concert. I knew that I wouldn’t be familiar with the songs, but I was up for a new adventure. And let me tell you, it was amazing.
The place was small, but full enough with people. And the atmosphere was magical, like you can feel the passion in the air, the pure belief that if you have Him in your heart, that would be enough. It’s so mesmerizing to see this, not only because of the performance, but also because of the audience.
This wasn’t a simple concert – just to go and enjoy the music. This was more – a connection with your own self, but with God as well. That was when and where I knew how strong is my belief and that I am finally ready to accept Him in my heart and live because of Him, for Him.
I don’t think that I ever had such a powerful realization. That moment when you just know that something is going to change within yourself. To realize that – yes, I am who I am, because He wants me to be this way. To accept myself the way I am, because He created me this way and this is how it is supposed to be.
Not by might, not by Power By Your spirit God, send Your spirit God
This song, when it was performed during that concert, I cannot explain what it did to me. Only if you know, you will understand what I am talking about. Yes, God can come to your life at a different time, but it will be when He knows that you need Him and only He can save you. And I am thankful that I was able to experience this.
