"I Surrender"

A couple weeks ago we had a really powerful moment at church.  We asked people to surrender something that was holding them back, or that was weighing them down.  Sometimes when churches try and do powerful things like this you never know what type of response you will get, will people play along, will they take it seriously, will it flop, etc.  Our people this particular week really were just truly awesome.  We had one of those moments where you want to bottle it up and replay it each week.  It was moving, and indescribable.  The Spirit truly moved and it still gives me Jesusbumps to think about it.

One of our fabulous singers sang this song from Jesus Culture while people were surrendering their sins and it just added to everything, so powerful, so very powerful.  This song is long, but it is so good.  Play it while you are cleaning or doing the dishes, and make sure you have some tissues because you will need them.  Seriously, if God doesn't move in your heart when you listen to this, listen again.

I love hearing about what your church is doing :) We just launched our youth service a few weeks ago and Madison really loved it. It's so exciting to be a part of a growing church.

My computer is being a stinker, so I couldn't play the song...but I do love those moments when the Spirit moves and brings us to sweet surrender. Love to you...and a blessed Thanksgiving!
