Last night we drove down to Southaven, MS for the Rock & Worship Road Show. My sister, Abby, is staying with us right now so she came with us!
Us at the concert! Only $10 at the door for 8 different bands! Seats are first come, first serve so since we arrived early we got great floor seats! As a side note… don’t we look amazing as Smurfs? 😉
See those floor seats down there? That’s where we were sitting. I snapped this shot near the end as we left a little early (it had started sleeting outside so we left about 20 minutes before the show ended). The floor seats were great, but it was SO.LOUD. Seriously, next time I must remember ear plugs. I get so used to out door concerts that I forget how loud indoor ones are. #oldladyprobs 😉
The first time I ever heard Matt Maher live was about 3 years ago when we went to the Rock & Worship Road Show for the first time. That year he sang “Christ is Risen” (which I’ve shared on the blog before) and I remember tears streaming down my face as I heard it for the first time. This year he sang several favorites of mine, but my absolute favorite was “Lord, I need You”. That song has definitely been the cry of my heart many days. I loved getting to hear it live and worshiping with thousands of fellow Christians. 🙂
David Crowder Band was the other group that really touched my heart last night (and Christopher’s favorite of the evening). They sang several of my favorites, but my absolute most favorite was when they sang “Come As You Are”. The lyrics to that song are all excellent, but my favorite line is: “Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can’t heal“. Amen, my friends. Amen.
It was an amazing night of worship and music and I’m so glad we got to go. The other bands were also excellent and I definitely recommend going if the Road Show is coming to a venue near you! 🙂
