Spiritually Moved

My boyfriend (YGB for those of you who read the VCDT) invited me to his youth group from his old church tonight, and I went.

At first, it was super awkward because the only person I knew was YGB, but everyone was really friendly and I talked to a bunch of people and two girls even flat out said that they liked me which was cool.

...Then we got to the worship part (always my favorite part of any youth group type thing)...I didn't know any of the songs, but that was OK.

In the middle of worship, we sang this song called Mighty to Save, and that got to me...

Everyone needs compassion,
Love that's never failing;
Let mercy fall on me.

Everyone needs forgiveness,
The kindness of a Saviour;
The Hope of nations.

Saviour, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save.

Forever, Author of salvation,
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave.

So take me as You find me,
All my fears and failures,
Fill my life again.

I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in,
Now I surrender.

Saviour, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save.
Forever, Author of salvation,
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave. (x2)

Shine your light and let the whole world see,
We're singing for the glory of the risen King...Jesus (x2)

Saviour, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save.
Forever, Author of salvation,
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave. (x2)

Shine your light and let the whole world see,
We're singing for the glory of the risen King...Jesus

The words, and the music, and the atmosphere in the room were just so moving, and although I had never seen the song before, I really got into it and felt it.

Later on, the same happened with the song Sweetly Broken:

To the cross I look, to the cross I cling
Of its suffering I do drink
Of its work I do sing

For on it my Savior both bruised and crushed
Showed that God is love
And God is just

Chorus:
At the cross You beckon me
You draw me gently to my knees, and I am
Lost for words, so lost in love,
I’m sweetly broken, wholly surrendered

What a priceless gift, undeserved life
Have I been given
Through Christ crucified

You’ve called me out of death
You’ve called me into life
And I was under Your wrath
Now through the cross I’m reconciled

Chorus:

In awe of the cross I must confess
How wondrous Your redeeming love and
How great is Your faithfulness

(2x’s)
Chorus:

During this song (yet another one I had never heard before), I honestly almost started crying! My eyes were tearing up because I really felt the Holy Spirit within me and moving me to sing and mean every word fully and truly with my heart.

I haven't had a spiritual experience like that in awhile, so I just wanted to share. I wish that I could explain better in words, but I can't.

^That is from Hillsong. They are a VERY anointed worship group from Australia. Check out their vids on youtube, especially "There is Nothing Like".

I loooooove Hillsong.

They have this Christmas song that I love. I really like their style of music in general, but that Christmas song (Gloria/Angels We've Heard on High) is so good!

ARGH! *Glomping Hugs!* I ALWAYS get teary at 'Mighty to Save'! I just thought that was me being a tad weird and being moved by the beautiful music at church, but its good to know that i'm not alone lol, and neither are you :)

I find Hillsong music very emotional and thats why I have two of thier CD's in my Car :) lol, I also find Mercy Me's Music terrifically expressive and moving.

I just wanted to share with you how pleased I am that you fit in so well at your Boyf's Church! I've recently relocated across the country and the only Church near me is alittle TOO weird for me, not that i'm trying to be rude or anything, but I found the experience unnerving (I'm going to Post about it tonight, so watch this space!).

Have a Bless'ed day :)

Mighty to Save is has become one of my favorite christian songs. They sang it at my church last Sunday, and I just fell in love with it. I'm actually listening to it right now :) Music is just one of the many ways we can come closer to God.
