Amazing Love…

Wow–what an evening…tonight, my youth group led a “Prayer Labyrinth”, which ended up being such an incredible experience. I’ve done several of these before–but this one was at a time in my life when I needed this experience with the Lord perhaps more than ever.

I washed feet for the first half of the event, which was so humbling. Each time someone came through, I read from John 13:3-17, about Jesus washing the disciples’ feet….and just pondering the thought that the God of the Universe humbled Himself to wash the filthy, dirt-covered feet of His disciples was so amazing…SO astounding…

From there, the people had a mini Passover meal…

The path then led them to a room where Psalms were being read (Psalms 5, 8, 23, 138 and 139)…time to just adore the Lord by hearing these words of wisdom and adoration.

…and then to a room of “confession”, with pictures from the Passion constantly scrolling through on the wall…and a wooden cross, where you could nail your confession/prayer to the Lord…this was an amazing experience as well…

(Each room was only lit by candles, providing an intimate atmosphere, with music softly playing in the background)…

From there, each person went to the “Vinegar tasting” room, where they had a chance to taste something similar to what the soldiers gave to Jesus…it was really horrible!

The next room was a room for Communion…

Then a room for “Artistic Expression”, where you could express to the Lord your adoration through paint and paper…so awesome! The paintings are in the youth room now, as reminders of this evening.

Last was a room with prayer (adoration, supplication and thanksgiving) and worship…I ended up taking over for Mark (in leading the worship) so that he could go through the labyrinth…and it was so awesome to just worship the Lord as people came in and out as they felt led…by candlelight…

It was a night of healing for me…a night to spend with my Maker, asking Him to continue the healing process…Some doors closed for me today, which will help tremendously in that process, and I was able to begin to work through some of the things that have been separating me from the Lord…

What a night…what a Savior!!
