Do you believe the Lord like to pleasantly surprise his children? I do. Case in point some friends of ours invited us to a Newsboys concert in Monterey, California. You may know Newsboys from their movie cover songs God’s Not Dead or Guilty. Sadly, we had to decline, because it just wasn’t in our budget.
Surprise #1 – Shortly thereafter we receive a call back from them offering to take us. Wow!
Surprise #2 – We arrived at the theater which was gorgeous and I noticed the sign stated Newsboys United and I thought to myself, What’s United?
Suprise #3 – Two of the original band members, Peter Furler and Phil Joel, who left 11 years ago join them on stage. Cool!
Suprise #4 – One of the lead singer, Michael Tate’s, old band member from DC Talk, Kevin Max, also joined on stage and sang a throwback song Jesus Freak. I used to listen to DC Talk back in the 90s. I never put two and two together. Very cool!
Surprise #5 – As we were exiting the theatre, we bumped into two our dear friends Ken and Shaunna. It’s such a small world.
You may say to yourself, Coincidence. Well, I believe God works through people to bless people and He provides divine appointments, not chance.
How have you seen the Lord surprise you?
