What is preventing me from meeting with the Lord today?
“All in the crowd were trying to touch him, for power came out from him and healed all of them.” – Luke 6:19 (NRSV)
When I come to church, I immediately begin to search for God. As the scriptures are read and preached, I listen for what God will say to me. God always has a word for me. I love singing for Jesus and spending time in his presence. Sometimes I struggle to get past the thoughts, anxieties, and busyness in my mind and soul. Worship allows me to reconnect with my faith and be immersed in Christ’s presence. It’s almost as though I can touch him. I am healed from hurt, anxiety, fatigue, and hopelessness. I love life again. I love people. Through worship we can be renewed and inspired to serve Christ and proclaim the good news. We have a place, the church, and we have a time, during the worship service, when we can reach out to the Lord and be filled anew with faith, hope, and love.
Prayer Dear Lord, thank you for always having a word to encourage us, time to be with us, and power to heal us. Amen.
