When my daughters ask something of me or tell me their concerns, they are looking for reaffirmation that everything will be alright. When I assure them that everything will be alright or calm their fears, they are embolden with confidence because they know “I have their back.” The same can be said with our relationship with God. When we approach God, we should be emboldened to know that everything will work out because we have approached our father.
Sometimes the hardest thing about helping someone is that moment were you have to stop and let them go before they bring you down as well.
Someone out there needs to read this today. I know this is hard. I know this is hurting you. This is one of those moments were you need to just “keep your eyes on the cross.” I pray that the peace that surpasses all understanding be upon you in this time of need. In Jesus name, amen. PJSLB
It’s been such a hectic last few days with school ending for the kids and with work. At times life can feel so overwhelming and i need constant reminders that God is in control of all. May God gives us the peace that can only come from him. In Jesus name, amen. PJSLB
During the WE ARE MESSENGERS concert in Macon, GA a beautiful thing took place. In between sets something caught the eye of Darren Mulligan, the lead singer of We are Messengers. Darren walked over (climbing over seats people were sitting) to hug and pray for a young lady. There was a hush on the crowd and without knowing the details, I started praying for her as well. Minutes later, Darren got on stage and continued singing as if nothing happened.
On the way home, my daughter and I were talking about that moment and were in awe on how the Holy Spirit was in that concert. What was said by Darren to that young lady was to forever be a mystery.
That was until I received a comment on my post from the concert. Turns out the lady’s name is April and this is her story.
I will 150% agree with You! I was at this concert. As a matter of fact he came off stage and prayed for me! He told me I didn’t always have to be strong, that I could let go, that is was in the Lord’s hands! What he didn’t know was I had just lost my dad the previous week. The tickets were given to me just the day before by my office manager because she had something come up. GOD knew I needed to be there! Darren spoke to me with the sweetest Irish accent, and I felt as if Jesus had his arms wrapped around me! This experience was more than you will ever get from church! And I’m proud to have had my daughter and dear friend experience this with me. Later the next day I went Darren a message on Facebook asking why of all the people at this event, Why Me? He said the Holy Spirit pointed me out to him. I will NEVER forget this moment! Watching your video still bring me chills! Cant wait for you to post more!
I have to say this was one of the most awesome thing I have ever witness. I pray April that the moments with Darren gave you the peace and comfort that can only come from Christ. In Jesus Name. Amen. PJSLB
