"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

I CAME DOWN FROM THE RAFTERS


As the title alludes to, I came down from the balcony at church today and actually sat among the living. For at least part of the service that is.

Part of the reason I do not hang among the living, besides having people issues, is that since I have been more connected to the Spirit these days, it is hard to contain myself when He comes upon me.

Not everyone believes like I do at my church. I am a bit more lively you could say! And I do want to respect others. As well as the pastor. So it was hard to contain myself today downstairs. Upstairs there is usually no one else, or just another person that sits away. But it is usually my prayer partner and I for the most part, who believes like I do. We can let loose in the Spirit upstairs!

We have one service now. There are over 1000 people at this one service. I have no idea what compelled me to agree to sit downstairs. Upfront even!!!! I can only say it was the Holy Spirit prompting me. As scared as little JBR was, she managed among the crowd.

    I'm smiling, as I think I know what church you are in, and that complete 'freedom' is probably not typical, even in this wonderful church! However... God is seeing your 'inner man' and rejoices that you are rejoicing!!! Good girl! :)

    Hugs!

  2. Good for you JBR. In time it may become easier for your to attend along with other fellow believers. For now go where your heart leads you whether up stairs or on the ground floor. God will meet you there. God Bless.

  7. I love that you obeyed the Spirit's promptings so that others will know that they do not have to fear the Spirit of God upon them just because someone - somewhere - perhaps long ago - abused that power in a false way.

    The Spirit is alive and active within us and it's that same Spirit that raised Jesus' from the dead for heaven's sake - HE HAS POWER!!!

    Singing and rejoicing with you,
    Stephanie

  8. Sometimes the Holy Spirit cannot be contained. And nor should He be contained. Sing His Glory! Shout to the rooftops!
