Hey there my bloggy friends! If you are visiting me today from the She Seeks site I want to say a warm bloggy welcome to you! If you are not visiting and would like to check out this week's devo that I had the blessed opportunity to be apart of, click here.
Well....I don't even know where to begin this morning! As I write this, I have just been to a Beth Moore simulcast and THREE different worship services! IN ONE WEEKEND. This is one fired up for Jesus girl! So buckle up. ;)
Just when I think...I HAVE SEEN IT ALL.
We have been visiting church's in our area and as of today, I have seen loud music, quite music, warm welcomes, cold welcomes, loud preachers, simple preachers, baptisms on the spot, pizza's sent as a thank you for coming, grown godly men holding a microphone and crying, phone calls to follow up, e-mails to follow up, exciting children's programs, free T-shirts and CD's and even......a wedding at the end of a service!
I have seen Him.....in a different way.
We just recently had to put our girls in a public school after 5 years in a private Christian school. And can I give God some praise? Because, I have seen....mother's praying with their kids, teacher subtly letting kids know they are Christians, mom's talking about what bible study they are attending and even children raising their hands in response to a question "What do you want to stand for?" and bodly proclaiming....."God!".
In a public school, I have seen Him...in an unexpected way.
But there is so much more to eyes being opened in a new way....
Charlotte peeps...did you know that our city has over 1800 Church's. 1800. Did you know that we are the second largest church city in the world?
Can you imagine what it would be like if we all came together and just loved and worshiped our God for who He is and not who we are or where we go to church?
Unity...it could be a beautiful thing.
It could be a peaceful thing.
But one thing I know....unity....It's a God-thing.
I'm excited to find a church home, but this process...it's made my heart very open to see and know that we need to come together as a city, as a nation and put things back under ONE GOD. And not just in our governments.....
It's been an incredible experience to worship with different people, different backgrounds, different styles and yet still....the same Jesus!
And here's how I feel about these 1800 church's in my city.....If Jesus is in it.....I want to be apart of it! If God's moving....I want to rejoice! If God's speaking......I want to hear! And if God's there...And He's here......And He's over there......then, we are all in this together!!
Because there is only one true and living God. And if we are all under Him...then let's act like it.
Revival isn't near.....it's now. Are you in?
I hope I haven't seen it all....Because every time my eyes are opened fresh....it's like I'm seeing Him in a whole new way. And that my friends.....is something to shout about!
Taking on a whole new sight,
