It was a wonderful, beautiful evening to celebrate the 30th birthday of our son!
A "Let Us Worship" Event
The past eighteen months everyone has had different feelings and thoughts about what was going on in the world. I'm going to try to speak in code here so I'm going to avoid words that start with "C". Sides have been taken, and I don't see one side giving in to another. We have all dug our heels in and are staying put it seems. I've been very disappointed by many politicians, celebrities, and Christian leaders the past eighteen months, but I've also had my hero's...one of them being Sean Feucht.
If you don't know who Sean Feucht is, there are thousands of YouTube videos of his "Let Us Worship" events. I would highly suggest watching a few as they are very powerful.
When "C" and the subsequent lockdowns happened, Sean missed attending his home church and felt led by God to go into America's Cities and take church outdoors to the hurting people. His movement is called "Let Us Worship" and is a protest of sorts to church lockdowns. His catch phrase is "The Church has Left Building". At his events, people mostly sing and praise God. Sean's signature song that is sung at every "Let Us Worship" event is "Raise a Hallelujah". I think the lyrics of this song really sum up his ministry:
I raise a hallelujah, louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah, heaven comes to fight for me
Louder and louder, you're gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes, hope will arise
Death is defeated, the King is alive!
Even though praising God "in the middle of the storm" is what is mostly done at these events, they also pray for the sick, and people are saved, delivered from bondages, and baptized.
Ever since I saw the very first "Let Us Worship" event on TV, I LONGED to be able to attend one. I never thought it would be possible for me as the nearest city is two hours away and frankly, we don't go into cities too much anyway because they are too dangerous. But to my surprise, I opened Facebook one day and saw that Sean would be in Marshfield, Wisconsin which is a small town not far from me. I was so excited! I could finally attend a "Let Us Worship" event. It turned out that Sean was supposed to be in Phoenix that day, but they cancelled on him, so he came to Marshfield instead! Yes! Lucky Me! So many people were thrilled that Sean came Wisconsin. We had over 2000 people in attendance, from all over the state!
And in honor of us cheeseheads, Sean even wore a Green Bay Packer hat to the event.
I was so grateful that God answered my prayer to be a part of the "Let Us Worship" movement. Everyone that attended was so moved, and many souls were saved and lives were rescued. The best part is that on the drive home, we all saw the most beautiful sunset and sky that we have seen in years. On Sean's Facebook post the next day, everyone talked about the beautiful sunset they saw driving home and shared pictures of it (sorry, I didn't take any pictures, but I'm sure you can see some of them on FB). It was as if God was giving us all one more blessing at the end of an already beautiful day.
Well that's it. Summer is officially over! I ended our summer with a bang with a vacation out west. I will start that new travel series next week Wednesday. Until then,
Have A Great Day! Amy
