amazing night

“&oh, how he loves us so, oh how he loves us, how he loves us so”

Today was just an amazing day for me. I love when you can hear God, when you can hear him plain and clear, when he tells you things, and he nudges you in certain directions. I just love that. I love when I can feel God in a room where people are praising his name. I love the feel of God being so close, being in the room. I love knowing that God can see me praising him, and giving him my ALL.

Tonight, church was amazing. I love being able to praise God, it is one of my favorite parts of church. Just being able to give God everything, and thank him and give him glory for everything that he has given you and will continue to give. Always. It is an amazing feeling, and it is what my heart desires, to give God his glory.

Like I said, tonight, church was amazing. We had a whole worship night. Jason gave the story of the prodigal son in the middle of our worship. Telling us that no matter what, our father is waiting for us with open arms. No matter what we have gotten into, no matter what sins we may have done. He was telling us that God would be there, with open arms. Waiting for us to come back, he will celebrate when we do. And we will be alive in him again.

For all the years that Jason has been preaching, and I have been coming. He has only done this one other time, and that time was the time that changed my life forever. The time when Cory told me that I needed to end things with my ex. I was in a very bad relationship, and I was told that I needed to end it and it all came out of a service like this. Before that service, I was at a very bad spot in my life. And I needed help getting out of there fast. Since then, after Cory praying over me, and all other changes.. I am a completely different person. And, all in one year.

This time, although it was the same type of service. I had a different role. Instead of being the girl that need to be prayed over, that need to be rescued from the things that I was going through. I was the girl, praying for other students. And it felt amazinggg! I thought that it felt good when people prayed over you(don’t get me wrong that still feels good and all) but knowing, that God is using me to pray for these people, God is using me to potentially save their lives like someone has changed mine, is amazing to me. It is amazing to finally be on the other side of that spectrum. And I love the person that I am now, and the place that I am in because of it.

The only thing that I could keep thinking of all night when this service was going on, is that if one person, just one person gets what I got out of that service. Then, it was worth it. If one person could experience God the way I have experienced him, it would be worth it. If one person could change their lives the way I did, after that service it would all be worth it. Each and every girl that I prayed for tonight, I hope and pray that some day they will be able to get all the good that I have gotten out of God. I hope and pray, that they would be able to see God the way that I see him, for him to be so strong in their lives, like he is in mine. And, if I could do anything, anything, to help them along that path, I would do it in a heartbeat. I know how important it is, and I know how it can save your life.

That’s what tonight made me think of, that was tonight for me in a nutshell.

I am so thankful to be where I am today because of what has happened in my life, and I hope that other people will be able to look back on this day and say the same thing.

God is real, God is here, and God is now.

Don’t waste another day in this world, and pass up the amazing offer that God gives you, because I know that it is bound to change your life forever, if you take him up on that offer.

I am living proof of this.

“yeah he loves us, ohh how he loves us, ohhh how he loves us, ohhh how he loves us.”


  1. this...made my day. First, of all I LOVE those moments! God blows me away with how incredible he is.
    Your heart is so beautiful girl!
    And I thought of that scripture in Matthew that says "those who ask, recieve...those who seek find and to those who knock will see the door opened." Isn't is awesome how when we ask to be used he uses us, even when we dont see the things he sees within us? And, when we ask to see him and know him better he just shows far more of himself than we could ever dream?
    Wow we serve an amazing God!!!! I'm excited with you :)
