Gettin' Our Praise On

Oh heavens. Short post, but I just had an experience that will go down in history (well, not in any books, but in my mind) as one of my all-time favorite worship experiences, EVER. We began our wake-up session at camp this morning by dancing down the aisles and on to the stage to MANDISA's version of SHACKLES off her new cd, TRUE BEAUTY. Imagine 1000 teenage campers (and some unhindered chaperones) dancing and praising the Lord for the chains (and ya'll, there were some TOUGH CHAINS this week) that He has broken and SET THEM FREE of...

..the SMILES
..the JOY
..the DANCING
..the PRAISING
..the CLAPPING
..the REJOICING
..the straight up WORSHIP of our KING.

What a GREAT day...and we haven't even had the preachin' yet. :)

In closing. BUY THE CD. and GET YOUR PRAISE ON.

Praise and Worship is the best:)

I try to teach people at church about how to let the music just breathe into your lungs like oxygen.

Once you get to that point, Oh, man its awesome huh:)

Be Blessed:)

Just stopping by. I love your verse from Galatians. It is truly for freedom that Christ has set us free. I used to be a prisoner of my own making. Now I know my Redeemer and I agree that He is all about freedom!!!
