Hey Friends 🙂
Last night was the Matthew West “Into the Light” concert! What an AMAZING show!
I’ve seen Matthew West in concert before so I knew it’d be great, but my friend Julie and I were BLOWN AWAY. Not only was Matthew hilarious and Truth-filled, Jason Castro & Sidewalk Prophets were exceptional.
The sold on, standing room only concert was powerful, inspirational and fun from start to finish!
Really, if Matthew West comes near you, run, don’t walk, to the concert. And bring some friends who could use a boost of encouragement. You’ll love it – promise! Tour dates here.
Two favorite parts stand out to me from the concert (although it is SUPER hard to narrow it down). One highlight was the powerful illustration with the nametags.
If you’ve ever heard me share my story, you may remember that “false name tags” played a big part on my “pre-Jesus” journey of defeat. In fact, I now super LOVE sharing how in Christ not only have those nametags been erased but replaced with labels of Truth!
Everyone at the show received blank nametags to fill in with the Truth of who God says we are. During Matthew’s song “Hello My Name Is…”, we were encouraged to lift our new name tags high. It was amazing!
I tried to capture the moment with my iPhone to share with you all, but I’m afraid it doesn’t quite do it justice. Here’s my attempt….
Another highlight was listening to the stories behind Matthew’s songs. If you’ve not heard the story behind “Hello My Name Is…,” please take a moment to listen to it below (you may want to grab a tissue, too). You’ll be blessed – guaranteed!
Julie and I left the Into the Light concert excited, refreshed, fired up and thankful for a great night of amazing music and a life-giving message. Woo Hoo!
Here’s a little more Matthew West for you to start your week! He said this song comes out in January, and it’s my new favorite. The video so makes me want to DO SOMETHING! Anyone want to join me?! 🙂
What’s your favorite Matthew West song? I’d love to hear from you!
Thanks for stopping by *She Sparkles*! May your week be filled with much joy, laughter, and fun family moments!
