Rough Lumber had it’s first event last night. I have no idea how many people were there, I just know that we spoke the truth and it was received. It’s amazing to see God’s word sinking in, speaking to hearts in ways they’ve never felt before. So awesome to be able to witness that. I wish I could describe how it feels to ask Christ to give you the words to speak, and then to stand in front of a crowd, not knowing what you’re going to say, no written or prepared speech….and yet it comes. The word that comes to mind is purpose. That’s what I feel.
We learned that cover songs are just cover songs. We played a couple of hit songs that everyone knew. While they were fun to hear, they had nowhere near the impact of the songs that we’ve written ourselves. Our ministry will be effective as we share Christ through our own personal experience with Him in our lives. We just need to go to Him, and let Him lead, and the rest will be taken care of. Isn’t that true of life also? That’s how it seems to me. For more pictures and sounds, check out the ministry at www.roughlumberministry.com
