Sunday Praise

Rock the Lakes is in Rochester this weekend. Jay is volunteering as a counselor there and the girls and I watched the live streaming of the event from our computer yesterday. Tears flowed down my face as I watched many come forward and accept Jesus into their hearts.

At one point yesterday, they played a movie that told the testimony of Brian Welch, formerly of the band Korn. I had goosebumps as Brian told his story of redemption, not only because of how dramatic it was, but also because I felt a connection.

Jay and I were not involved in hard drugs, but like Brian, we hit our own “rock bottom” before we were open enough to reach out to God.  My husband struggled with alcohol and we both had our own demons that we had to overcome. (You can read more of our testimony story if you click my “About Me” tab above.)

So, today’s praise will not be a song, but rather a story of how Jesus changes lives.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;

old things have passed away;

behold, all things have become new.

2 Corinthians 5:17
