I have attended the Planetshakers concert and conference three times. This is the fourth time. The excitement that I felt was as if it was the first time.

Experiences have a way of lingering in our hearts and minds long after the music fades. It's like the embers of a fire that continue to glow even after the flames have died down.

When we're still high on the energy and emotion of a praise and worship celebration, it's a perfect time to reflect on the significance of that experience. Those moments stood out the most – the songs that enlivened my soul, the prayers that resonated with my heart, and the sense of unity and connection with others who were worshiping alongside me.

As I bask in the afterglow of the concert, it strengthened and deepened my relationship with God. It allows the joy and excitement to fuel the passion for worship and motivate living out the faith in tangible ways.  you'll find that the high you're feeling now is just the beginning of a deeper, more intimate journey with God – one that will sustain you long after the echoes of the concert have faded away. Even though you had just met them, it did not matter who they were. The fellowship in the name of Jesus created a bond or a common ground. That's what He does.

It's a beautiful opportunity to reflect deeply on the significance of what we've encountered. In those moments, it's as if the music and the atmosphere have built a divine connection, drawing us closer to God and to each other. The songs, with their powerful lyrics and melodies, become like prayers lifting our hearts to the heavens. The collective voices of fellow worshippers and the band create a symphony of praise that resonates within us, reminding us that we are part of something greater than ourselves.

Indeed, God showed me His glory. His presence. His love. His mercy. His grace. His healing. His forgiveness. His glory. They were manifested in every way. He filled the atmosphere and all the people just flowed and swayed to the rhythm of His goodness and faithfulness. 

Like the lyrics of the song say:

You've turned my mourning into dancing

You've turned my sorrow into joy

You've turned the page, 'cause it's not over

Yes, HE did! Through this event hearts were transformed, prayers were answered, and lives were changed. As the event came to a close, every worshipper brought home with them, new joy, new hope, and a new life, and of course, new songs to play and sing along with. May God continue to bless Planetshakers, the vessel of Jesus into this world.
