Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
I grew up going to Church. Growing up my parents would always take us to Church. They modelled what it was like to praise God and read the Bible daily.
As a family, we would regularly get together before bed, sing a hymn (I grew up in a Methodist Church), and we would read the Bible and pray together. I loved being in Church and enjoyed singing along with my dad while trying to follow along with his harmonies !!
While I haven’t always been diligent to read the Bible daily, this is something that I am making an effort to do daily.
One constant has always been in my life and that is God’s goodness and faithfulness. I know I might not always understand His ways but I know His love for me is undeniable.
I worship God because God deserves it. I love the scripture in Isaiah 41 where it talks about NOT being discouraged because He IS my God and that for me is a reminder to keep trusting God no matter what comes my way.
For the Worship Night, I am expectant for God’s presence to be felt in a way that we’ve not yet known. For everyone to leave with a fresh joy in their hearts knowing that they’ve encountered God.”
