When the electricity fails

Hey friends,

Long time no write!

I’ve not known what to say. 

There is so much sadness in our world. So much hurt and so much pain. It seems petty to post pictures of a painted furniture piece or my next project. So I wait. I wait for an experience worth posting about. 

Last week we prepared for Sunday church in the midst of the Las Vegas shooting. Something I love so much about our church is its leaders and the ability to change. Change a series because God says that His people need to hear something else. Change songs because Worship doesn’t have a set list in God’s eyes. 

The teaching changed

The Worship songs changed 

And Sunday morning when we arrived on campus at 7:00am the electricity changed. We had 60% of our lights, no air conditioning and most of the sound equipment didn’t work. The plaza where our church campus is located had lost at least one leg of wires from the transformer.

We had already changed the set and added two brand new songs from Wednesday night rehearsal. That alone is a lot. Rehearsal was not the greatest and we were all ready to smooth out the kinks and get ready for the 9:00 gathering. 

The teaching title for the day was “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” 

Our pastor comes in during rehearsal and he was so excited! He mentioned that the current state of electricity could not have been planned any better. 

Our God, in our darkest moments does His biggest miracles.

That was the big idea. 

I can’t even describe Sunday morning. The power with its limitations only created the most powerful presence. 

The 10:30 am gathering begins.

The Worship is amazing. Just a few of my friends. So much talent 

The teaching is amazing

We begin to sing the last song of the morning. It’s titled “Our Hope is in You.” 

We are halfway through the song. You can listen here: 

Oh God all our hope is in You

Oh God all our hope is in You

No other name

No other way

Our only hope

Oh God is in You 

The lights…..Come on

Pastor Mark looks back at the band

The room erupts. 

People thought it was planned


Only God can plan something so incredible.

He’s got our whole world in His hands
