|I Will Give Them the Heart|
Last week ended perfectly.
The first week of school was rough. Getting back into the swing of things after such a life changing summer just seemed meaningless to me. I was pretty bummed out, to say the least, and I'm usually a person who enjoys school, so it was a very different start to my year.
So why did this week end perfectly? One word.
I can't sum up Friday's concert into words, but it's just very revitalizing to be in a place with thousands of people worshipping God, the only One who truly matters. After a week that felt full of negativity, complaints, and things that just didn't seem to matter, it did my heart and soul good to take time to be still and worship.
Being still is underrated. Our lives are filled with hustle and bustle, moving from this thing to the next. So much so, that we start to ignore the things that really matter and only pay attention to the earthly details. Details that probably won't even matter by the next week. I have spent so much time thinking about college and homework and papers, and haven't taken any time to sit without distractions, talk to my Lord and listen to what He has to say. I do so much moving and talking and working and not enough sitting and listening. But when I really take the time to let go of all the worldly mish mosh, and focus on Him, something new is awakened in me.
Oh, it's so good for the soul.
All of that to say, I am so grateful for Hillsong, because I was able to really let go during their concert.
