I'm a day early due to the time difference, but I've just discovered that my church band, Citipointe Live, has posted new videos to their YouTube page from their live concert/album recording from back in June. (I'll do a link back to Amy's page once she posts). I had been waiting and waiting for weeks to attend the concert but on the weekend I was stuck in bed. I'd had influenza a month earlier, and my body was running out of steam again. I've never had the 'flu before, and I have to say that I thought childbirth was nicer!
Anyway, the video below is of Citipointe Live's song "Name of Jesus" and it is a special song for me. Last Sunday at church was "Saturate Sunday", which is the name for worship Sunday, where we spend extra time in worship and prayer to God. The band were singing this song, along with the church, eyes were closed, people were up the front being prayed over, and arms were raised heavenward seeking Jesus.
I sought Jesus, and I'm honoured to say that He came and found me. As the band was singing His name over and over, I had prayed that I could be forgiven for not being, and for help to be, the mother I should be. I felt lost in the moment, praying to my God, when all of a sudden, eyes still closed, I saw a serene and bearded face, surrounded by a gold/yellow light, appear to my left. His face was so close that I could have moved forward a little and placed my cheek next to His. Jesus looked right into my eyes and said, "it's alright Paula."
With that, the band stepped up the tempo, my eyes opened, and He was gone from my sight, but not from my heart. My heart is racing now just thinking about it, and tears are welling up in my eyes. Our Jesus, my Jesus, the man who suffered and died on the cross for me, had just appeared to me and told me that it was alright.
Please enjoy this video and take a moment to close your eyes and seek our Lord as you do. He IS waiting for us to seek Him. He's always there. We just need to, as the Pastor said later during his preach, allow Him to be able to get through all the busyness of our lives. That is what worship is for; an avenue for God and our Wonderful Saviour to get through to us.
