Lately, my heart has been longing for a ladies gathering with you for the purpose of worship. While my private worship is an incredibly important and empowering part of my faith journey, there is NOTHING like ALL of our voices raised as one to our Lord, Savior and King. Our collective of hearts and deep soul’s longing to be in His presence is magnified when we lift our eyes toward heaven in praise and worship. 🙌🙌🙌
As I have prepared, prayed, planned, purposed, surrendered to the Lord’s will for the 2019 Summer Caution, I have considered this night, one of great significance as the vision and mission of this event is changing.
Case in point- I listened to an insightful podcast this week. I cannot remember who the pastor was or the church but the next seven words stopped me in my tracks.
The context of the pastor’s sermon was the life and battle between a very small and seemingly ill-equipped shepherd boy against a warrior and military giant.
Yep- David and Goliath
A young, ordinary shepherd boy David was prepared by God through the power of the Holy Spirit to boldly step in to serve the Lord no matter the directive!! He was READY!!!
In this season of my life, my family has continued to battle giants at every turn. This last month, God has led me deeper into the Old Testament. My spirit has been inspired, challenged hip-boot deep and stirred while lingering alongside of hugely significant historical faith moments in the lives of a nation, a people and individuals found in God’s Word.
The highs and lows of God’s people. Real life. Always a wonderful, good and faithful God. Failure, success- no matter the hardship or circumstances, they were humbled and bowed low with reverence in their response to the God of heaven. Forgiven, after taking God for granted, their immediate response was that of thanksgiving, gratitude, worship and adoration.
So we have lots of fun planned. You best be prepared to laugh, grow in community and end the night with an all-in worship opportunity!
Listen friends- Praise ALWAYS leads to victory. Simply opening our hearts, breathing out the air from our lungs and singing/expressing words from our throat and mouths opened up gives our souls the ability to clear out the things that weigh so heavy on our souls. You know what I mean. That weight we carry on our chests – every little thing for all the right reasons! He has made us to regularly worship and release.
So get ready beloved of God- Clint and Amber are bringing the band and no matter how bad our voices creak and crack, God will inhabit the praises of His people.
God wastes NOTHING that we have been through in our lives! He is preparing us for something bigger than we are, bigger than we can do- So am I ready? Are you ready?
God is doing something greater!!!
“I am the Lord, who opened a way through the waters, making a dry path through the sea. I called forth the mighty army of Egypt with all its chariots and horse……. But forget all that— And it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland…… Yes, I will make rivers in the dry wasteland so my people can be refreshed. I have made you for myself, and they will honor me before the whole world.”
Man if that doesn’t make us shout and sing hallelujahs- Behold!!!! God is doing amazing things. Tuesday, as a collective, let’s surrender. Let’s send resounding notes in beautiful harmony toward heaven. Let’s watch and wait women of faith and courage. Let’s believe together for HIS honor and glory!!!
Not ticket? No worries!!!
