Saturday, June 9, 2012: FIRE!
One of the most satisfying aspects of ministry is when you are able to “get out of the way” & allow God to use you as a vessel… Especially when the Lord fills your mouth with words that bring encouragement and confirmation of words previously spoken that you had NO knowledge of!
That’s what happened Saturday evening when our praise & worship time moved “off the page” from the songs we had planned and rehearsed to new songs & new melodies we were not familiar with, yet somehow had a bond with in our hearts. The word “FIRE!” struck a chord in our worship time and it was later found to be something that had become a sort of “theme” for this congregation over the last few months through both spoken words & visions.
Sunday, June 10, 2012: REACH OUT!
Sunday morning the Spirit continued to flow through both the worship and the message delivered by Pastor John Shantz. “REACH OUT” was the prevalent theme for the worship time & once again new words & melodies came forth as we pressed into God & reached out for Him, even if only to touch His garment. The further WE reached, the more we saw & tasted of Him and His love, his mercy, His grace that he has waiting for us.
