How GREAT is our God!!

I can't even bring to words how awesome last night was! Mike and I worshipped with Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Louie Giglio, and a full theater of Atlantans!! It was AMAZING! The tour is titled Indescribable and the entire night was centered around the magnitude of God and it was the first time I was overcome with all the emotions built up in me during this crazy time in our lives! I hadn't allowed myself to cry out to God and realize just how mighty and indescribable MY God is! Matt Redman led us in several songs and let me tell you...the words were powerful! One praise we sung out was
OH NO! YOU NEVER LET GO. THROUGH THE CALM AND THROUGH THE STORM. OH NO! YOU NEVER LET GO. THROUGH EVERY HIGH, EVERY LOW!
followed by
YOU GIVE AND TAKE AWAY! YOU GIVE AND TAKE AWAY! MY HEART WILL CHOOSE TO SAY, "BLESSED BE YOUR NAME!"
This is the first time in my life that I have truly trusted God with my entire life, not knowing what he was going to do. It would have been so easy for me to give up after Katrina. We had followed God and moved to New Orleansl...miles upon miles away from our family, our friends, out entire lives and then we were forced out. But we didn't give up. We saw that God had a few detours that we didn't see! He has never let go, through every high and every low, he's been there! I am SO glad that our hearts have choosen to say "BLESSED BE YOUR NAME OH GOD!!" This is an amazing time in our lives that I know is preparing us for the rest of our lives and I have been and continue to be blown away by God right now. He truly is INDESCRIBABLE!!


God was greatly praised and I was so blessed to be there...in that theater...praising God! Chris ended the night with what has to be my favorite praise song simply because it puts the words together that mean so much to me right now. I hope that you all can join with me in saying:
HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD, (SING WITH ME) HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD, ALL WILL SING HOW GREAT, HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD. HE'S THE NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES, HE'S WORTHY OF ALL PRAISE, MY HEART WILL SING, HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD!!

What an awesome exsperiance,I wish I wish I could have been there with you and Mike. We all,but especially me, forget just how huge and totally awesome God really is. I need reminded of that more often than I would like. It is great you and Mike have the faith you do, to trust in God like you do. I am sure he is going to use you both for all kinds of good works for him. Love,Daddy
