awakening

Wow. What an encouragement to my heart. For those of you who don't know, the Passion Conferences are events that are for university age students around the world who want to lift and exalt the name of the Lord. 


Tonight I had the privilege of watching the Passion 2011 Live Link, which was a live simulcast of a service that was happening in Atlanta, just 30 minutes from my house. The Lord just spoke to my heart in so many ways; it would be hard to put it all into words. All I can say right now is that God is good. His ways are perfect. His love is true and eternal; it never fails. This world has nothing for me, and I have nothing apart from Him. His goodness is overwhelming and His love is so worthy of the praise from every nation, tribe, and tongue.

Isaiah 64

 1 Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down,
       that the mountains would tremble before you!
 2 As when fire sets twigs ablaze
       and causes water to boil,
       come down to make your name known to your enemies
       and cause the nations to quake before you!
 3 For when you did awesome things that we did not expect,
       you came down, and
the mountains trembled before you.
 4 Since ancient times no one has heard,
       no ear has perceived,
       no eye has seen any God besides you,
       who acts on behalf of those who wait for him
.
 5 You come to the help of those who gladly do right,
       who remember your ways.

       But when we continued to sin against them,
       you were angry.
       How then can we be saved?
 6 All of us have become like one who is unclean,
       and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags;
       we all shrivel up like a leaf,
       and like the wind our sins sweep us away.
 7 No one calls on your name
       or strives to lay hold of you;
       for you have hidden your face from us
       and made us waste away because of our sins.
 8 Yet, O LORD, you are our Father.
       We are the clay, you are the potter;
       we are all the work of your hand.
 9 Do not be angry beyond measure, O LORD;
       do not remember our sins forever.
       Oh, look upon us, we pray,
       for we are all your people.
