Did ya feel it?

I’m not gonna stay on my American Idol kick, even though I live it.  For real.  BUT, I’d be remiss not to address the totally amazing performance they gave at the end of “Idol Gives Back” Wednesday night.  Did ya see it?  I’m sure you’ve seen the YouTube video floating ‘round the net.

It was goose bump city for this girl raised in the Bible belt.  I looked intently at each AI performer singing “Shout to the Lord” and had to wonder:  “Are they feelin’ it as well as they are singin’ it?”  I think they were.  Because, whether are you are a fully committed follower of Christ or a tree in the wilderness, you cannot excuse yourself from the anointing and power of the Holy Spirit.  I felt it.  Did you?  The scriptures command that we worship him.   I’m sure some of you have probably already left today’s blog.  Sorry.  I can only tell ya the truth.  Psalm 100: 1-2 says “Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth! Worship the Lord with gladness. Come before him, singing with joy”. 

Now, here is a scripture to begin your weekend:

1I will exalt you, my God and King,
  and praise your name forever and ever.
2 I will praise you every day;
  yes, I will praise you forever.
3 Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise!
  No one can measure his greatness.4 Let each generation tell its children of your mighty acts;
  let them proclaim your power.
5 I will meditate on your majestic, glorious splendor
  and your wonderful miracles.
6 Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue;
  I will proclaim your greatness.
7 Everyone will share the story of your wonderful goodness;
  they will sing with joy about your righteousness. 
Psalm 145: 1-13 

You see, nothing compares to the promise I have in You.  Did ya feel it?

  1. I felt….in a big way. That was the coolest platform for a whole nation invited into His presence. I laughed and thought….who was the person who decided that that song would be performed in front of millions of people all over the globe. I imagined what the nay sayers were thinking. You never know what is brewing, but a nation that is being challenged to its core from the war, the economy, the upcoming election…..and right in the middle of the pop culture we are settlled by a encouragement from one performance of a classic praise and worship tune by some talented young men and women. I don’t know much….but I think God is going to get the encore. I FELT IT durstee!

  4. Dusty,
    I have to agree whole heartedly, “I felt it too” like John was leaping inside Elizabeth, when she was carrying John the Baptist? My spirit was leaping also, it was sooo awesome, it brought my heart MUCH JOY! The write up was awesome, as always! love you! Keep them coming! Books will be next!

    Oh my gosh! I was so excited – it felt like a huge, annointed worship experience. This is part of the prophetic Word that was sent forth on January 1, 2008. In the words of Pastor Buren, “The best is yet to come.” Love you Dusty!
