I planned on posting about missing out on corporate worship today. I’ve been working on my thoughts all week. Ironically today has a new perspective. And I would have missed it if I hadn’t stepped outside my front door for a bit.
After weeks of dry hot weather we’ve had 1+ days of continuous rain and cooler temperatures.
- The rain has stopped
- The temperatures are in the 60’s
- The air smells clean
- The street is quiet
- Birds are singing again
So instead of missing out on the chorus of song with other believers, I can feel a slight cooling breeze and hear the quiet undertone of insects and birds. This is my chorus for the morning.
So while I’m still getting a “not yet” from God on returning to church, I’m sitting quietly at His feet from my front porch swing.
But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
While I’m not experiencing what I think I want, I’m gaining so much more. Instead of hearing the different voices of those that may of stood around me, I can hear the different melodies in a different realm. With the busyness of the day planned ahead, this would have been a missed moment.
Worshiping with gratitude and thanksgiving, waiting in awe and wonder.
On the Journey, Jackie
