A Concert Thank You, Devotion, Verse of the Day – 27JUN
I have to share this thank you which turned into a devotion…
My friend treated me last night to the Sting and Peter Gabriel concert!!! she wanted to go and her hubby couldn’t and kids wouldn’t, she thought “who loves Sting?” and my name popped into her head instantly – cool huh?!
It was AWESOME… Lawn seats, perfect weather, Mars staring over my shoulder and lots of DANCING…. I am SO BLESSED and God reminds me of that everyday…

Thanks again, I can’t thank you enough for the concert!
I understand this scripture of the day relates: Matthew 16:25 “For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.” – the joy we share in is the joy of the Lord….
You are totally right when you said last night that I am in a good place, I am where God’s has placed me, He gives me a new level of JOY that I never knew…. and I know the trials in this life are purposeful, keeping me humble and keeping me looking to the Lord….God takes care of His own they say, I never want to fall out from being under HIS wing. That is my constant prayer, for God to hold me close…
I can’t thank you enough for the concert and MOST importantly your friendship, Lord knows I don’t understand how BLESSED I got, but scripture tells me SO….. WOW, when I wrote that it automatically capitalized and I instantly connected it to Peter Gabriel’s “SO” album – “THIS IS THE NEW STUFF, I GO DANCING IN….” ain’t that the truth of an awakened life?…. I didn’t connect that but now I do! WOW
WOW, see… even when I don’t try to write about God, well God finds a way to turn my head to Him and remind me that HE “knows EVERY hair on my head”…. It makes me shiver in fearful awe and delight of HIM… I ALWAYS seem to find a devotion to write within hours of stating “God hasn’t forced me to stop and write about Him lately”… Yup… Now He just did!
Genesis and Peter Gabriel and Sting are all in God’s plan for me, and in your life too!!! One finds God’s hand everywhere, cool huh? I have SO many spiritual connections to their songs that I have been able to write about… Cool…..
Being at the concert was like being at an unusual type of church, that “sea of humanity” IS the church of people God wants to connect with… But even as they enjoyed the music they don’t always understand the words (or listen, because they are too busy yapping and being distracted) – that’s just like the Word of God too – those people don’t ALL get it, God picks a few, and picks them to lead others to HIS life changing words too… It’s an intercession plan that works organically one by one, a trickle effect – it’s interesting to watch how God works!
…. This IS the new stuff, I GO DANCING in….
