Tonight, my friends and I went to the Gwinnett Church night of worship. It was incredible! We got to stand right in the front row, worshiping our hearts out for Jesus. Thank you Lauren for inviting us to come with you! But a few things really stirred in my heart tonight.
This word AGAIN. When we were singing the song "I Fall", something inside of me just began to have a realization. If you haven't heart of this song before, PLEASE go listen to it know so you can experience what I am feeling about this song. One of the lines in the song include "I fall at your feet again, here's my heart again." I never realized this until tonight but the word again demonstrates that we continuously fall at the feet of God. Not once, not twice but again after again after again. And you know what, God's grace will never run out. We have to continue to push ourselves back to God and fall and give Him our hearts. Time after time.
The second thing that really stood out to me today was A.S. K. Jeff Henderson is the pastor over at Gwinnett and he was talking about Matthew 7:7-8 which is about ask, seek and knock. He continued to include that his challenge for this year is to ask for BIG and BOLD things, seek God even when things don't go as planned, and continue to knock even when you don't know when it will happen. Which is so cool because ask, seek and knock all add up to the word A.S.K.. Cool right? This year, I am asking that God does something huge in Chattahoochee and open people's hearts to everything coming their way, but to also seek Him when things get busy and tough and when things are going as planned and to make time to continue knocking on God's door. Chattahoochee has HUGE potential. I just pray that God will open their hearts this year to the greatest gift of them all, Jesus' love. I pray for there to be light in such a dark place. I pray for kind hearts that will be willing to help others. I pray for a change of heart in Chattahoochee. Its a long shot, but we are praying big and bold. I am willing to surrender everything to Him to help make this happen. One step at a time. By no means is this going to be easy, but in the long run it is going to be so worth it. Lead by example.
Thank you Gwinnett church for putting on such an incredible night of worship. You all are doing awesome things! Those were just some of the awesome things I learned tonight. Jesus, I fall at you feet AGAIN.
