The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, “The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!” The Lord is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him.
I’m really excited for our worship night. Yeah we’ve not done one before, and yeah it’s something new, but I think it’s something more than that.
Worship means something different to everyone. For me, it’s peace. Whenever I get stressed, anxious, worried, freaked out, the worship music comes on. Usually older stuff, I don’t know why.
I think it’s because I’ve grown up in church, and I can remember these songs from when I was younger and starting to discover God for myself. Whenever I need that peace, the worship music goes on as loud as I can until I can’t help but focus all my attention on God.
This Covid season hasn’t been fun. And I’m in introvert saying that. Seriously. When I was told we all had to stay home and not see anyone, it was incredible. But even I can see how being apart from people, apart from our families and friends can be harmful.
One of the biggest things I’ve noticed since getting back to in person services, is how out of practice we are. It’s taken time to feel like meeting together to worship God is normal again.
Some Sundays have been incredible, but sometimes they still feel difficult. They feel hard. I think this is the season we’re still in. Don’t get me wrong, I’m so happy that we’re able to meet together, but it sucks that we have to limit numbers, wear facemasks, and that we can’t sing along with the worship team.
We’re so close to being told that all of this madness is over and things are getting back to normal, but we’re just waiting on that. It feels like all this is going to be forever, and that is depressing. Sometimes the atmosphere feels muggy. Like when it’s hot and there’s a storm due, like something is about to break. That is what’s exciting though.
That’s what I’m believing for this worship night. That the atmosphere is going to break.Something happens when we worship. You put aside whatever you’re going through to declare the goodness, and the glory of God. You right place Him. I think God has got some incredible things for us in this next season. And I want to be ready for it. I don’t want to feel muggy. I want that spark reigniting. I believe this night is going to be unbelievable. That God is going to show up like he never has before.
That we’re going to look back and see it as a turning point. The Bible says when 2 or more are gathered, God is there too. Well we can’t have a full room, but we’re going to have a lot more than 2! I think when this Covid season is done, there are going to be a lot of people wanting to know about God and church. I’m praying and believing that as we worship, we get reignited.
That God gives us a fresh excitement, and energy to go again. To get back to what we do best. Changing lives for Christ one life at a time
