So tonight I wanted to jump off the stage and stick my microphone in the faces of some attenders and make them sing. I was sweating profusely and jumping as high as I could. I was running the stage. I was leading as well as I could. And nada. Nothing. I was only inches from the edge of the stage when I caught a glimpse of one of the culprits not “worshipping”. As I looked closer I could see the bottom of both eyes glossed over with tears. During Tell the World. Then I got slammed. On stage. In the middle of the set. In fromt of my church. By God. Me Me Me Me. I want the church to experience God through the service the way I want. Sometimes wanting to force it down their throats. Then I realize that I go to a church where people actually INVITE their friends who know NOTHING about the Jesus I am FORCING them to SING and SHOUT about. Man. I wanted to tuck my guitar between my legs and walk off stage. Rookie mistake. Rookie mindset. Then we got to the end of the set…

A thousand times I’ve failed
Still Your mercy remains And should I stumble again
I’m caught in Your grace
Everlasting
Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending
Your glory goes beyond all fame

Your will above all else
My purpose remains
The art of losing myself
In bringing You praise
Everlasting
Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending
Your glory goes beyond all fame

In my heart and my soul
Lord I give You control
Consume me from the inside out
Lord let justice and praise
Become my embrace
To love you from the inside out

Everlasting
Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending
Your glory goes beyond all fame
And the cry of my heart
Is to bring You praise
From the inside out
Lord my soul cries out

The air was THICK and the room was FULL of the Spirit. It’s amazing what happens when you just let is go. So thank you to the guy with both arms crossed mad dogging me. When the light hit your eyes you showed me more than I could imagine. Feel free to worship with your arms crossed anytime.
