An Awesome Night

The clock was ticking, approaching 8pm. The day had finally come. We practiced (for at least 7 hours that weekend), we memorized the lyrics, we got our parts right. It was show time 🙂 We were slightly nervous – oh, but that day,boy, did it manifest differently! Instead of the usual butterflies-in-the-stomach, I had a pounding headache. OKay,maybe I wasn’t nervous-more like a lack of sleep the night before..lol.But thank goodness Ashley brought panadols!It saved my night 😉
The songs we presented were flawless – perfecto 😀 It couldn’t have been better to finally hear the whole choir coming together in all it’s different parts to create this grand harmony of songs. Now the only downside or the unplesant side of this was this: because there weren’t enough space for the whole choir to sit when it wasn’t our turn to present – we had to stand for the entire service – solid 2 hours worth. So I’ve got my usual high heels on, and by the 3rd song, my ankles were achy-achy – and I was trying very VERY hard to remove them without making it too obvious. lol. In case people might notice the difference in height ;). So my shoes were on, then off, then on, then off again for the whole 2 hours. Never knew I could stand for such a long period of time 😛
The soloists were way talented, especially Lana Smith. When she sings, you tend to wonder where the powerful voice is coming from, since she looks like she’s doing so effortlessly! lol. 🙂 Then came our last finale song – Days Of Elijah – we knew it was going to be the grandest, most powerful song of the night. (I loved the part where the choir just repeats "There’s no God like Jehovah, There’s no God like Jehovah" –again and again. It was pure worship – exactly what we’d be doing in heaven, endlessly praising God. Amen, there’s definitely no God like Jehovah!) We came to our ‘false ending’, we got our standing ovation, which then we continued with our pre-planned encore, and by that time, we just couldn’t be bothered whether our voices were hoarse and we’re tired – we just kept singing our hearts out. I could definitely feel the energy from the congregation and we were there proclaiming about our mighty God in all His glorious splendour. Wow. 😀 It was truly an awesome night.
Behold He comes riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun at the trumpet call
Lift your voice it’s the Year of Jubilee
Out of Zion’s hill salvation comes
