Greetings my friends. It is Sunday March 20TH 2022, and this is the day that our LORD has made. Let us rejoice. Let us be glad in it. Let us celebrate this great new day of believing, following, trusting, loving, and being more like our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.
I love that. I love my church family. Last Sunday I celebrated my 7TH anniversary with my current church family. I walked through the front door of my current church building 7 years ago on Daylight Saving Time Sunday in March 2015. It was my first time ever visiting that church, and I only knew one person there beforehand. It only took a few minutes into the service to realize that I had finally found my new church. (I was looking for one for the previous 3 years.)
I actually went back to my previous church the following Sunday for one last time to make sure that it was the right decision to leave, and it was. My leadership roles had greatly diminished over the previous few years, and the church family that I left behind was not the same church family that I grew to love for many years before that. God was gently closing the doors of that book of my journey. I walked through the front door of my new church building and family the Sunday after that, and I’ve never left (or even attempted to leave) since then. I belong to my current church family.
So God has put the body together such that extra honor and care are given to those parts that have less dignity. This makes for harmony among the members, so that all the members care for each other. If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it, and if one part is honored, all the parts are glad. All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it. (1 Corinthians 12:24b-27 NLT)
As believers and followers of Christ our Savior we are not meant to walk alone, and we are also not meant to stay in the same place where it’s comfortable. If you get too comfortable you may realize that it’s actually not where you belong anymore, but it’s too difficult to move to a new place because you’ve known that comfortable place for so long.
We must listen to our God at all times. He’s guiding us and directing us every step of the way if we would just listen to His whispers, and follow Him. If God is telling you to move because He has something better for you – then move. If God wants you right where you are – then you’ll know so if you’re hearing Him.
I am constantly in awe of my God’s guidance and direction. I can’t not listen to Him. I need His wisdom.
If you wish to learn more about the God I know then stay tuned to #SundayScripture. The best is yet to come !
Thank you for reading my blog for this day, and may:
The LORD bless you, and keep you.
The LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you.
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. AMEN.
