Lakeland last night.......
Last night I decided to check out the revival. It was so worth it to me. I was so blessed in many ways. The worship leader was a young spunky woman, I don't know who she was or her name. She was running all over the stage, I don't think she stood still once. Now some people may be critical if they had seen this, but I was excited. I used to be a party girl. I went to dance clubs every weekend and sometimes on weeknights for 4-5 years. I loved, loved, loved dancing, still do!! Anyway, I was thinking about how the crowd was wild, jumping and cheering and they were encouraging them to do this! I thought, you know what some people might think this is weird or even wrong, and I am sure there are very religious cynical people out there huffing and puffing about how disrespectful their behaviour is (that is if they can even stand watching it for more than a minute). But, the thing is we all go to concerts, football, baseball, our kids sports games and go wild screaming and cheering and acting a bit silly. So, why is it that that is exceptable, but going wild for our God and King is not!! What is that?! Why is God not worthy of the same exuberance and ultimately "praise". The bible says, David danced before the Lord with all his might! Come on, if we can cheer like wild people at anything, we can certainly do it for the High King of Heaven!!! Okay, so my little rant about that is over.....!!
Now I really want to highlight the man who ministered last night. I just became aware of him this past week and went and checked out his ministry website, Eagle's View Ministry and even linked his site on the right hand side of my blog. Bobby Connor, spoke and then led the healing ministry and he was amazing. I enjoyed his teaching greatly, and I don't think I have ever heard anyone preach and quote so much Scripture from memory. I was so blessed I wanted to find out how I could listen to it again. So here's the link for last night if anyone is remotely interested in listening to it, just click on July 22. I really want to go back and listen to it and write down as many of the Scriptures that he quoted as possible. Check it out!!!
