Bob Fitts Concert Tour 2012

 I have listened to Bob Fitts since I was 12 years old and I can never forget how his songs has connected me to my heavenly Father during my quiet time. The concert brought many memories to me and has lifted my spirit to worship Him. God's awesome presence filled the hall and hands were raised to praise Him. WOA did a great job accompanying Bob Fitts in his music and the backup singers harmonizes so melodiously. Kudos to the band and backup singers.

It's so sweet for the wife Kathy to stand and worship with Bob throughout his leading of worship. Thanks Bob for the encouraging and uplifting message and songs you have shared with us throughout the concert. Many of us are blessed.

This is a clip I took during the concert. A beautiful song ' He Is Lovely'.

These youths probably have not heard many of his songs but it's great that they came to experience a this meaningful praise and worship event. The songs sung are those that I used to worship during youth meetings. Worship is an expression of love to God and songs that we sing should be the vehicle that brings us to the presence of God. To fixed our eyes on Jesus and enjoying His presence.

God Loves Us. Let Him.

"Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love. - John 15:9
Moments after I read this verse in my devotional book, I felt a wave of love just overwhelming me and suddenly I forgot what it felt like to have the Father's love in a tangible manner. Father God was getting my attention to His love. No matter happens, He is there for me to depend on, for me to trust His ways and not forgetting His love is eternal.

When you are in moments of uncertainties, be assured that God is a certain God and He desires the best for you even when you are not able to fathom His ways. We complicate our Christian walk so easily by trusting in our own judgement and ideologies. We are such complex beings but Jesus knew our shortcomings yet He still loves us and just as the Father has loved Him, He desire us to abide in His love.

A lot of good can come out of difficult situations if we just know how to run to Him and rest in His love. Because in His love, comes faith to do the impossible, living and acting upon right decisions, even to extend gracious help to people in need. For when we fall out of His love and focus upon ourselves, we get lost in our own self righteousness and it hurts us even more than we know it.
God loves us, let Him.
