After the morning's activities, we went to the Riverwalk to have a YUMMY lunch. We really bonded and had a couple of laughs, which in my opinion, is one of the best things. We got even closer to each other and to God in that time. It's quite the blessing to have friends like them!
When we finished lunch, we had A LOT of time on our hands, so we walked around the Riverwalk and high-fived two hundred kids from the gathering. After that, we met up with Elizabeth who had been to two sessions that morning at a Jamie Grace concert. The concert was BEYOND amazing. Just being able to worship with that many people from all over the country was overwhelming. When the concert ended we got our famous blue backpacks or bracelets signed by Jamie Grace and her sister AND we actually talked to them, which was very cool. Carie, Katie, Jessica, Mandy, and I advertised our free hugs again which was super fun! We had a great afternoon!
Finally, one of my favorite parts of today was the mass event. I mean, everything was absolutely great. Today's mass event was Love Born, Love Sent, Love Died, and Love Live, which means that Jesus was born, then sent to us, and died so that we could be forgiven of our sins. Love Live means that Jesus is the love that lives. Afterwards, we worshipped for a little bit and then we started, what I call, the emotional part of the mass event. During this part of the event, we were told to write our sins on a piece of paper and pray about them. While the song was playing in the background, we prayed and I personally asked for forgiveness. Then we started to sing my favorite song Lay 'Em Down by Needtobreathe. Needless to say, I cried quite a bit, but we got to turn to our neighbors and tell them that their sins were and are forgiven! Now, that was really a lot to take in, but in the end we were all smiling. Oh! I almost forgot we got to watch the Skit Guys with Rachel right after the Mass Event, which made me laugh hysterically!
The ending of our day was great! Worshipping, becoming so much closer to God, seeing the Jesus painter again (his painting was so beautiful) were great and I just loved it! Today was incredible on so many levels even though it was busy. I honestly feel that I have become so much closer to Jesus. What a great ending to our day!
I'm looking forward to what tomorrow holds! We have worship tomorrow morning and the mass event at night, so we will be busy! I'm going to continue growing closer to Jesus and putting more into my faith, which is simply amazing. That is the greatest thing of all!
