The CALL..

A few days ago we announced that we will be going to Washington D.C for AWAKEN THE DAWN, and RISE UP event by Lou Engle and "The Call". Being 5 weeks out from the event we were more than surprised that being there kept being confirmed over and over and over.. From dreams, to messages from strangers, to emails, to number plates.. we had let the idea go 3 weeks ago when we thought it was too much to organise, too soon. Well, we stepped out.

We aren't unfamiliar with "stepping out". In fact, it seems to be the norm for us by now, trusting God every moment of every day to lead us where he promised. But D.C? That's literally the other side of the world God! 

If you have been reading our blogs long enough you will know why a historical event like this means so much to us. Thousands upon thousands of Americans on the National Mall lawn praying and interceding for the nation, and in the middle of that, 4 Aussies with a HUGE heart for the U.S.A! We can't wait to see what God will do as we come in faith.

Last year when we went to Azusa Now by "The Call" in Los Angeles it was exactly 6 years to the day that we had left L.A but there was something we didn't connect until we got home that May. When we left L.A in 2010 God brought a song across my path. It was "The Call" by Regina Spektor. When we left we were grieving as U.S.A has become home to us, and we didn't understand why we were going home after falling in love with the nation. But the lyrics encouraged me that possibly one day we would be back. The main lyrics are as follows;

It started out as a feeling
Which then grew into a hope
Which then turned into a quiet thought
Which then turned into a quiet word

And then that word grew louder and louder
'Til it was a battle cry
I'll come back
When you call me
No need to say goodbye

Pick a star on the dark horizon
And follow the light
You'll come back when it's over
No need to say goodbye

You'll come back when it's over
No need to say goodbye

 When we discovered this message from God hidden in this song all the way back in 2010 we were undone! We will go back when we are "CALLED"? And we did. We went back to "The Call" 6 years later and God birthed what we are doing now through that event.

Now here we are again being CALLED, and we have stated a firm YES to his invitation, and we can't wait to share with you what God does as we step out. I feel there are people reading this that God is asking to do BIG and IMPOSSIBLE things, and I want to encourage you to look beyond the natural and begin to trust him that He is taking you into deeper waters and into greater destiny today as you respond "YES LORD!"
