Help Is On the Way: Michael W. Smith

Okay, so today has been a great day.

This weekend has been great. My husband surprised me with - get this - children staying with his dear parents, and tickets to a Michael W. Smith concert last night: 7th row!

It. Was. Fabulous!

The concert included Phil Stacey (American Idol), Matt Maher & Meredith Andrews.

I wish that I could convey the bigness of the sound, the energy of the music, the intimacy of the lyrics & the palpable movement of the Holy Spirit. Be assured, dear friends, that it was BIG!

These two videos (2 of my favorites from last night) can't convey all that, but they can sure give a peek.

I am so thankful to have been a part of that experience, & I thank my dear, generous, thoughtful husband for giving it to us.

I believe people's hearts were moved in that room last night.
I believe healings of all kinds took place, & people left different than they came.
I believe people tasted the sweet pelting of Healing Rain & know, truly, that Help is On The Way.

I believe this happened;
I know it's true, because I'm one of them.
Glory Hallelujah!

I grew up listening to Michael W.!

James~ Me too. I've seen him at least 2 other times (maybe 3), but last night's concert was far & away the most moving, meaningful worship experience. It was interesting to see, too, how his 'message' has evolved over time. Same Gospel, of course, but different emphasis.

Melonie~ SOOOOO good to see you here again! Yes, we had a great time, thank you very much! ;)

Joe~ Mine too. And 'artist' says it. His musical ability is VERY strong! My husband & I talked afterward about how he has crafted such a lengthy career & held to the sincerity of his faith & 'mission.' Very impressive.

RisR~ GREAT to see you here again too! And yes, he is an 'icon,' for all the reasons listed to Joe above, & more...

Thanks, all, for sharing in my joy over this!
