We were so excited about the instrument’s power we decided
not to use it until our next live performance; we wanted our
spontaneous excitement to enlighten the crowd. Since we
dominated our practice session so well, we decided to let L ask
the pastor if we could perform for tonight’s special service. The
pastor accepted the request in an instant almost as if he was
expecting us to ask him.
“I’ve been anticipating this for a long time, kids. Give us the
show of a lifetime!” he said eagerly after granting us permission.
With no time at all, the time came for our performance.
After all the concerts we’ve played around the state, we’re finally
coming back to where it all started. Only this time, it will be
stronger than ever before!
We didn’t know what to expect from the new instrument or
what it would do during the performance, but for some reason,
we didn’t care. We were simply going to jump in, give it our best,
and have the time of our lives regardless what ends up happening!
We walked to the stage with high expectancy of powerful
things happening tonight. No matter how small the crowd
and no matter how disappointing their reaction is, we will not
let anything discourage us from having the time of our lives!
Regardless what ends up happening or what goes wrong, we will
press on and have a good time whether the crowd wants to be
a part of it or not! It doesn’t matter if the crowd loves us or not
because it was never about us in the first place. It’s about them,
how they feel, what they’re going through, and how we can unite
with them and help them. Our music is not about setting us on
a pedestal and distancing us from people who love us; it’s about
reaching deeply into our hearts and uniting us all together as
brothers and sisters.
Humbled and excited, we waited eagerly for L to start us off.
The crowd went completely silent when the spotlight shined on
him as he had on his small wizard hat and eye-catching apparel.
However, it was obvious that the beautiful emerald guitar strapped
around his body was the main attraction.
“Hey there, everyone,” he said to the curious crowd who
listened attentively. “Tonight we’re going to play something
special together. Tonight we’re going to play something that will
unite us as a family. Something that will drive our excitement
and feed our expectancy. We haven’t written this song yet or ever
played it before, but tonight we’re going to write it together!
We’re going to play this unwritten song with the expectancy that
something extraordinary will come out of it. So let’s keep our
hearts opened as we dive in the world of the unknown and fly
with faith into the heavens. Tonight let’s play with expectancy!”
At first we were thrown off by his spontaneous decision,
but when he looked back at us and cued us to follow his lead,
suddenly we possessed new found confidence in ourselves and
decided to go along with it. Something in his eyes sparked our
fire as we suddenly felt inspired with the idea.
After the first strum of the magical instrument, I could
already feel a supernatural change in the room as if the music had
already fallen in sync with my spirit! I felt my heart opening to
the supernatural power as if it trusted it completely knowing one
hundred percent it was going to pour only what it desired most.
The sound of the golden strings was absolutely amazing! The
sound was so crisp and clear it was squeezing right through the
thinnest channels of our ears and into our very souls! I could
almost feel it piercing my spirit as my body began shaking
uncontrollably by its trembling energy!
As the song led off on its slowly opening improvisation, I
could feel the magic. I wanted to lift my hands and feel the magical
dust I could almost visualize precipitating throughout the room.
I closed my eyes as I let the sound sink in smoothly, allowing my
instrument to be manipulated by the magical instrument. I let my
heart be guided with the music as it suddenly became natural to
follow along its lead.
As the music started picking up, so did the movement of the
audience. We all united together with a series of claps, and as
the music picked up more, the claps became louder. Our spirits
could feel the powerful vibrations of the room as the song greatly
increased its power; we could feel the power building as we closed
our eyes and tuned our voices with the music as if we already
knew what was coming next.
The strumming speed increased as his pick dove deeper and
deeper into the strings amplifying the volume to sync with the
building power. The energy was flowing faster and faster within
the room as the power drove deeper and deeper…until bang! The
climax reached its utmost potential, unleashing the music’s full
spirituality upon our bodies as the sound vibrated loudly amongst
Upon listening to the song, we could feel the magic of
expectation within the anointed improvisation. This was not
our song but the song from the creator of music who knew no
limits! The power of expectation kept pouring within this room
uncontrollably, making us all feel like we could do anything! Our
increasing confidence and faith only fed more power to the song
as its energy increased even more beyond the limits we thought
But it wouldn’t stop there!
It pressed on further and further past what we ever imagined
an angel choir from heaven could ever accomplish! It was
driving into a force we never knew was possible to imagine! The
experience was becoming unexplainable and unbelievable, but it
still poured out more…
The crowd began jumping madly like raging animals as we
danced around as widely as they did following whatever insane
spontaneous action they came up with at the moment. None of
us were even ourselves in this moment! Our limits of keeping our
minds together were beyond pushed, so we found ourselves doing
insane things we never thought we’d be doing! Even the elderly
were acting as if they were nineteen years old!
Eventually, things got so out of hand Amy abandoned her
drum set and leaped out into the crowd for a one hundred percent
trust fall! Shortly after Amy’s insane outburst, Michael and Seth
abandoned their positions as well and grabbed each other’s hands
and started spinning in a circle as fast as they could. When Seth
could no longer hang on, Michael literally launched him out
into the crowd! Normally I wouldn’t have believed what I just
witnessed, but instead I took crazy action of my own! I invited
everyone to jump on the stage with us as we all reached toward
the sky with our hands!
It felt like tonight was almost turning into some kind of
rave, but instead of aggressive actions, there were only passionate
actions being taken! Nobody attempted to steal the spotlight
by trying to be more insane than their neighbor, but instead
everyone tried to include their neighbor in the excitement! There
was no competition within the room but rather unity! The love
was pouring in the atmosphere as we focused our energy thinking
about others more than we did ourselves! It was about all of us,
so we wanted to include as much people as possible within the
love! There was no limit to the amount of people we could invite
into the action because the love pouring into the room would not
stop. There was a powerful presence with us tonight that knew no
limits. Its love kept filling the atmosphere, making reservation of
this love impossible!
We were filled with so much expectancy that we felt like we
could do literally anything! There was no limit to action we felt we
could take! There were no reserved boundaries! We felt the desire
to help everyone around us and uplift them to mutual feelings of
invincibility; we would not stop until they were experiencing the
same level of excitement as we were.
No one could get enough of this! Energy levels regardless of
age were peaked as we found ourselves dancing with overwhelming
joy all night! We were all experiencing the concert of a lifetime
tonight, and we didn’t want it to end! We danced around the
clock until everyone finally fell to the floor in exhaustion.
Tonight was an incredible night of bondage and unity. I
wish there were earthly words to describe just how heavenly and
powerful tonight’s experience was, but there just isn’t. Tonight
was a night not planned by us or anyone else! This whole night
was guided under improvisation, the faith of supernatural power
flowing freely to its will. No earthly master plan can compare to
what occurred tonight. No eye could have seen nor could mind
have imagined anything beyond what was experienced here.
This was without a doubt, the best night of my life to date.
Somehow though, I still wanted more, and something inside me
told me there were still bigger things to come! I couldn’t imagine
what it could be but from here on out I’m not going to try to
imagine anymore because in the end, faith will take us further
than imagination can ever hope to go!
