|Just as God gives me heart shaped clouds to remind me of HIS love, He also brings contentment to my soul!|
This past Sunday I went into the house of the LORD ... ahhhh.... it was so good
Now, I realize that when I say "the house of the LORD" I am not saying that our church is THE house of the LORD, but instead it is the local gathering of believers of which I am a part of. Sometimes, between working full-time in ministry, and being away at the cabin ~ it means that I often miss weeks where I am not sitting in the pew. I miss that. I miss the people around me that I get a hug from. I miss getting the sermon first hand. I miss worship in music ... and just standing there with my eyes closed worshipping and hearing the body around me singing. SO when I went to worship with Eastview Church last Sunday - it was so good.
That morning God had taken me to a place where I had a big "aha" moment. I will be honest, I have had some hard hard days since January 1st. Hard, but good.
Hard, but I've grown in them. Hard but I see God's work and experience His presence in my life. But, there have been hard times.
So on Sunday, as I read/journalled/spent time with the LORD ..
And then I went to church and listened/prayed/worshipped I noticed something .
I noticed that I had a strong STRONG sense of CONTENTMENT.
It was strong.
It was noticeable (even compared to the week prior)
I knew it was of God.
It was very very tangible.
