I had the blessing of accepting a gift for two, to a local Christian concert.Bucky and I were delighted beyond lyrics!!! Here are a few pictures we took and a text I sent my children.
“I got kissed by the lead singer, Joel in For King and Country, “Beautiful Lady”. Joel whispered to me, “beautiful lady” I felt nothing but resembled beauty, but it is a reminder of the reflection of Christ in me. (tears)
I will never wash my right cheek again!! I will share my right cheek with you 🙂
If you ever get opportunity to see King and Country, don’t miss it!!
The two sons, Joel and Luke, endearing Australian accents.
You know how when young men go into battle, they raise their arms with the battle cry, For King and Country? That is how they came up with name! How cool is that?
Never seen that kind of God energy brought into audience. I feel the reality of His Kingdom most significantly at a Christian concert. The music, lyrics, energy of The Holy Spirit bring heaven to earth for me. I feel so blessed.
Your dad looked up their Mantra. It follows:
“The power of music can impact our mood, emotions, our day. But when you merge the strength of music with the heart, hope and passion of the Gospel… it has the ultimate power not only to change someone’s day, but to impact them for eternity. This is why we write music and sing songs – we hope that people will be moved, encouraged and stirred to live a life for Someone greater than themselves.” King and Country
There is a secret that came after that kiss that sealed the anointing, but you will have to wait till the last chapter of my book, if I ever get it published. If there is one lesson I have learned in this place, things are not as they appear. I am not as I appear. I am firey, full of wonder and so ready for the best of life!!!I have to say the thing I was going to leave unsaid. In desperate situations, we want to call OUT a whole legion to battle for us!!! I think about the movie, Prince Caspian, in the epic battle scene. We want/we need to their is an army fighting for our victory. No matter the current circumstances, we feel too small, too ill-equipped for our fight. We may not like how “things” look for us. But don’t fall for the seen!!! The heavenlies are duking it out for you. Rest assured victory is only the way!!! I am working my faith to accept God definition of victory.
“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14
