Injured to Rest

Generally, it takes an injury to get me to take a break and rest. It is just how I am cut. I am a worker, I enjoy it, love it and it is healthy and gets things done. I would rather do something than sit around, every time.

So, not being a kid anymore, here I am with a right shoulder ligament tear. Yippee. And thr pain is big when I do pretty much anything. So, God wants me to rest again. I have to get better and finding a balance so it doesn’t take such extremes to get me to slow down a bit.

And resting is important. In fact, just as too much rest makes you lazy, too much works causes pain. We are to do both. Rest in the Lord. Work for the Lord. Still working n on how to do that, but I think they key is to honor the Lord in anything you do and rest is a part of taking care of the body He gave me, just as much as working is. 😄❤

Leading Worship

When asked to lead worship, no matter how many you are leading- 1 child or thousands of people, no matter- it is the highest honor. There is no cause so worthy as worshipping the Most High God and leading that worship is so much higher an honor. It actually is leading in humility to lift up the name of Jesus. Leading the bow is fantastic.

So today I received that honor. We sang together How Majestic Is Your Name, There is Power in the Blood, We Bring the Sacrifice of Praise, When I Survey the Wondrous Cross, A Shield About Me and The Cares Chorus. Such beautiful worship together. Praise God!😄❤

Today God Answered Another Prayer

Today’s worship was beautiful. Our church family loved the hymns and Bible readings before each one. And since we are still searching for a pastor, we had a guest pastor today who spoke on the power of prayer. His message was that we need to pray deeply to fill up our tank and build our spiritual muscles to change us. We do not pray to change God and God’s hand but to change us and our faith. Then we can minister to people for Him. Powerful and very true message. I am grateful and many were moved and encouraged and myself included. So very thankful! God is powerfully and lovingly good!❤❤❤
