A Time Of Worship
It is no secret that we are living in a very different time as many Churches are not having in person worship opportunities. For some this has changed the way they spend their Sunday mornings, nevertheless we should not forget that this is our sabbath. There are times when we use our Sundays for our day of finishing things we didn't get done on the other days of week. Sunday becomes a day when the shopping has to get done, and we feel we have to get things we need done for the kids and the house, and before we know it those things become the focal point of our Sunday. It becomes a day for washing the car and doing yard work. The Scripture reminds us that, Sabbath is the day of the Lord. I encourage you today to use this day for worship and giving God praise and the honor for being your God. We work all week long, and many times they are very long hours even in this virtual setting making sure our job gets done. Spend some time on Sunday giving God the thanks for the way He has seen you through the week. God is good to you and as He continues to watch over you day and night, be thankful for the many blessings He pours into your life. The things you go through during the week you would have never make it out of, if The Lord was not watching over you. I know you may be tired and had a long weekend already, but isn't The Lord worthy of some of your time? Can't you give the Lord a few hours today? I will spend some time in worship and praise with the Lord every day and since I will praise Him I know without a doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord thank you for blessing my life and allowing me to see another day that I can worship and praise you. In Jesus Name Amen.
