From Hope to Hillsong

When a promoted ad for a Hillsong concert in Grandville, Michigan, popped up on my Twitter newsfeed in early July, I immediately felt a call to attend. As a matter of fact, I remember the ad catching my eye so much that I was (pretending) to jump up and down (I was still in my boot), the instant I saw it. So, I called up my two best friends, Delaney and Sarah, and we bought tickets for the concert.

IT WAS AMAZING. Two nights ago, I experienced my first worship concert with two amazing sisters in Christ. We road-tripped to Grandville, ate Mexican food, and praised our amazing God. Here’s some pictures from our adventure:

Over and over again, I hear the lyrics from Hillsong’s “Oceans”: Spirit, lead me where my trust is without borders.

That is my prayer to God, that I will trust in Him even when my strength is failing. I want to walk on the water like Peter did when Jesus told him to come, and I desire to walk without questioning whether or not He has the power to save me. I know He has that power.

This concert was life-changing. Our only bummer was that we missed the first Gathering of the year in Dimnent Chapel, studying the book of Acts– we’re still sad about that– however, I heard God was doing great things there as well. Praise God for doing so many amazing things in so many amazing places, and most of all, doing them all at once.
