The big box store may seem like an unlikely place to break out in worship, but when the Holy Spirit is alive inside you, there’s no better place to give Him praise than right where you are.
It all started when a shopper took to a keyboard display with her musical talents at a Dothan, Alabama Sam’s Club. The piano attracted shoppers from all over the store, where they gathered around the keys and joined her in praise! One of the Sam’s Club employees even joined in, singing harmony and leading worshippers through later verses of the song.
The heartwarming video is a reminder of what Jesus says to us in Matthew 18:20, “Where two or more are gathered in my name, I am there in the midst.”
We all could use a little more positivity in our lives. Hopefully, these heartwarming videos are just what your heart needs today!
