In The “Memories That Are Too Good To Be True” Department

So, I’ve been listening to IHOP’s Limited Edition CD (Volume 4) in the mornings, and it’s been bringing a smile to my face.  Every time I listen to the Cd, I’m reminded of a little trip Bryan, Sean, Christy and I took to Kansas City in January. 

I had just finished preaching a Sunday Morning service at the Car Barn where Kansas City Christian Fellowship meets.  The four of us were en route to John Gross’s house for an afternoon of fellowship.  Someone popped in the Limited Edition CD and skipped to track three where Misty sings about God’s unfailing love that will never let us go, even if we try to escape it.  The song is rejoicing in God’s persistent, pursuing love even in the midst of our running from Him. 

Picture this: The four of us are in a new car, listening to this great cd.  All of the sudden we all start worshipping to the song.  The car fills with worship and it just so happens that someone in the car had an djmbe and began playing it with the song.  It was a moment so good, that if you saw it happen in a movie, you’d say, “No, that could never happen…” But it did. God is the only one who could plan something like that. And the thought of it is making me smile.
