I need church
I need church like a drowning man needs air, I need church like a man in the desert needs water, I need to be here, to worship and pray with others who's faith is like mine.
This faith, this church is about me, for me.
I will never get on a soap box and preach to others about what they must do or not do. I am from the school of whatever gets you through your day is what is good for you.
I don't judge, who am I to judge? I am far from perfect, I believe that God, my God is a forgiving God, a loving God but again this is for me.
This is what gets me through my day, this is what gets me through the dark nights, the times when it feels like I can no longer hold on, it gives me strength, it gives me hope, it fills me with peace.
When I come to church I hear a word that is for me, things I've been praying about, things I've been going through, somehow it always speaks to me...Todays message was exactly what I needed to hear...
Lately I've been asking God what is going on? I've been doing all the right things yet it feels like I am spinning my wheels, when is this breakthrough coming? If this is my season where is it?
Does this mean I stop believing? No, but even Ms. Positively needs some reinsurance now and then.
I have been away for 2 weeks and even though I watched the podcast, its not the same as being there, so I really needed a message.
So this was todays message:
God is shaping you into what he wants you to be...
He telling you want he wants you to do, you need to obey God, once you do God will open doors.
God is taking you places you may not want to go...but you have to go.
It is there he will show you what he has planed for you, I know that your comfortable you dont want to go, but it is through that uncomfortable times, you will grow.
He shows you if he can do it for others, he can do it for you
It might get messy, it might get dirty but God is shaping you through it all.
It doesn't look like you envisioned your life to be, its out of control, your swimming but not going anywhere...
Sometimes we go against God's plan and it gets harder.
But just watch what God is doing, he will make it over, he is working on you.
God can take your mess and turn it into a message.
Don't get caught up what you look like now...
Eyes have not seen, ears have not heard what you will become if you stay in his will....
And then my Bishop said "Remember this too shall pass" which was my mom's favorite saying and I knew this was my message...
Yes, this is the message I needed to hear...its always the message I need to hear...this is way I keep coming, this is why I need God, this is why I need my church....
"Be the change you want to see"
"And just when the caterpillar thought his life over...he turned into a beautiful butterfly"
