Today was a Sunday of reminders.
From the songs we sang like “He is Exalted” which reminded me of the first CD of praise music I listened to on the way from Bellevue back to Ole Miss every week.
To the teenager with a similar testimony to mine getting baptized, to “This is the Day,” a song my daughter so beautifully memorized last year.
To “Thou Oh Lord” reminding me of Who lifted our heads and sustained us this week last year when we lost Paige.
To magnifying God’s name with a room full of believers/church family, to thinking back to the sun streaming through the nursery windows at our first house as I sang “Bless the Lord Oh My Soul” with My 3 and 1 year olds as we tidied up their room.
To the preacher literally saying, this sermon is nothing new, but a “reminder” as he preached a wonderful sermon and ended it confirming what God laid upon my heart in the book I wrote last October.
“It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.” Titus 2:12-13
God is good. Jesus saves. The Holy Spirit is speaking. Church is wonderful. Grace is a gift. #faith
I fully don’t expect anyone to read any of this but if you did and you go to church, isn’t it something you appreciate even more since all of this “mess” started in 2020? I appreciate the opportunity to go to church so much more now.
