Laura Story – Blessings

In a hectic season in my life, Laura Story has been a voice of reason. PJSLB

We pray for blessings

We pray for peace

Comfort for family, protection while we sleep

We pray for healing, for prosperity

We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering

All the while, You hear each spoken need

Yet love is way too much to give us lesser things

‘Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops

What if Your healing comes through tears

What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near

What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

We pray for wisdom

Your voice to hear

We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near

We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love

As if every promise from Your Word is not enough

All the while, You hear each desperate plea

And long that we’d have faith to believe

When friends betray us

When darkness seems to win

We know that pain reminds this heart

That this is not our home

What if my greatest disappointments

Or the aching of this life

Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy

What if trials of this life

The rain, the storms, the hardest nights

Are your mercies in disguise

Songwriters: Laura Story

I got a feeling something great is going to happen…

To quote the Black Eye Peas…I GOT A FEELING!

Today is one of those days where I feel that “something great is going to happen this week.”  Its a weird feeling.  There are just times in your life that you hear the Holy Spirit speak a little more clearly and for me, today was one of those times.  I dont know what will happen.  I am at a good place right now and we all know that was not always the case. I love my job, my kids are thriving at school, my wife is awesome, and I even got the NFL Sunday ticket this year (though the Giants are 0-2 to start the season).  It will be interesting to see what will take place this week.

Even if nothing “special” happens this week; just being able to have that moment with the Holy Spirit this week has already made this week awesome.  Have a great week my brothers and sisters in Christ.  Remember, we are the face of Christ on this side of heaven.  PJSLB

Lauren Daigle – Look Up Child

Just had my first run thru with Lauren Daigle’s new album; Look Up Child. Absolutely…inspiring. It has the hit, You Say but the song that is on repeat now for me is Rescue. Lyrics such as this just put me at peace…

I will send out an army to find You

In the middle of the darkest night

It’s true, I will rescue you

I will never stop marching to reach you

In the middle of the hardest fight

It’s true, I will rescue you

I have a feeling that this album will be on repeat for the foreseeable future.

You can find Look Up Child on Apple here.

Have a great day everyone. May you see the love of God today. PJSLB

David Dunn – Macon, Ga 2018

The WE ARE MESSENGERS tour gave everyone who attended a sense of the Holy Spirit. Held at Northway Church, the setting was so intimate that you had genuine moments between the artist and the audience. Before the headline act of We Are Messengers, JJ WEEKS and David Dunn came out and did their thing!

Out of all the artist in this night, my family was most excited for David Dunn and he did not disappoint. My daughters (especially my youngest) loved the two man set up and using the “computer” as she calls it to make the music. Seems like David loved hearing this.

The song everyone (including my kids) was waiting for was the last song played ; I Wanna Go Back. The lyrics of the song are beautiful. We all had a time in our journey with Christ when our relationship was simplistic and personal. As time goes on, we lost that intimacy.

I wish I took more pictures but to be honest, I was on my feet the whole time just soaking in the moment.

You can listen to I Wanna Go Back here. In case you missed it, you can also read about We Are Messengers and the moment that made everyone quiet.
