While I was posting earlier, American Idol was recording on TiVo. I mentioned in my post about AI last week that I always TiVo the show. Anyway, I just went downstairs to watch the results show, and I just had to come back up here and post….after I picked my jaw up off the floor and brought it upstairs to my computer that is.
Usually, I fast forward through the beginning…Ryan talking, the contestants doing their group song, etc., etc. Tonight, though, I wanted to hear the results of last night’s Idol Gives Back. Right after they showed clips from last night’s show, Ryan said, “Here are your Idol contestants (or some variation thereof) with Shout to the Lord!” I thought, “What? No, that can’t be right. Surely not.” And then I heard it. The familiar beginning I have heard so many times before. And there they were. The final eight contestants singing, “My Jesus, My Savior, Lord there is none like You…” There was a choir. It was beautiful. I was stunned. I couldn’t close my mouth. I wanted to cry. Millions of people watched this. Heard what I heard. Saw what I saw.
I don’t know what is happening, but God is moving, and I am in awe.
