“Whatever tomorrow brings, through fire or pouring rain, we won’t be shaken.”
As those words echoed throughout the Kings Island amphitheater, I could only stand there in amazement as I leaned my head back to look at the sky and allow the pouring rain to splash against my face.
Last week marked our annual trip to Spirit Song at Kings Island Amusement Park. Once again it was a wonderful three days filled with music, laughter, and friendship. Saturday’s concert featured Jeremy Camp, Building 429, and TobyMac. Building 429 came out first. I had seen this group numerous times, and each time they seem to get better.
The weather forecast had given rain for the afternoon, and sure enough just before the concerts started we had to get the ponchos out. When B-429 took the stage though, the rain had stopped and the sun was beaming down again.
My regular readers know how worried I’ve been over my dog lately. He has cancer and for the last few weeks has been feeling bad. Before leaving for my trip I called my vet, and while on hold they were playing contemporary Christian music. B-429’s song, “We Won’t Be Shaken” was playing. I can’t tell you how much comfort those words spoke into my heart, and while I was standing there at Spirit Song, I clearly remembered that day.
Hearing the song played live would have been enough to make my spirits soar, but just as Jason Roy began to sing, it started raining. Not hard enough to get soaked, but enough to be able stand there and enjoy it on my face. I felt God speak to me so clearly in that moment. He wanted me to know that no matter what fears I had for the future, no matter what pain I would have to face, He would remain steadfast and true, for I belonged to a Kingdom that is unshakable.
“Therefore, let us all be thankful that we are a part of an unshakable Kingdom and offer to God worship that pleases Him and reflects the awe and reverence we have toward Him.” Hebrews 12:28 The Voice

Please join me in prayer
Thank You for musicians and the music they use to minister to our hearts. You knew exactly what I needed to hear and I feel so blessed to have experienced that moment in the rain with my friend.
In Your name I pray, Amen
