"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!

THE LOVE CHURCH


Went to what I call the Love Church last night. I made reference to this church in a few posts back where I stated that it is difficult for me to worship at this particular church because they do a lot of songs about God's love. But, in that same post I mentioned how the Lord would like for me to step beyond my comfort zone and go, even if I cannot feel His love, but let His Spirit and the Body of Christ minister to me.

My body and mind have been exhausted these past few weeks, and the enemy gave me that excuse to use to get out of going. But, it made me even more determined to go. My Spirit has been so dried. I wanted to be fed. I wanted to be among others praising God, lifting my voice unto Him!

Only thing I have to keep in mind is that I am not a teenager any more. I kind of over did it a bit with jumping around praising. My exhaustion really caught up to me quickly.

And yes love songs were played and sung. I did okay. A few shaky moments, but I gave my anxiety and fears to the Lord.

There was one particular song they sang which was "Sing My Love" by Jesus Culture. They sang this same song the first time I went to the Love Church two months ago. I had no problem singing this song and welcomed it. I have been playing it daily since then (it is the first song on my play list at the bottom of my blog below).

The Spiritual side of my journey to healing is critical. It is the most important part to my freedom. I cannot and would not leave this part out in telling my story.

So, I am glad I went last night. Exhausted and all. Being obedient to the Lord makes all the difference. And in time my endurance and stamina will be replenished and I will be able to last longer.

  6. Sing My Love is yours and Jesus' love song! I love it when He gives us a love song. My daughter, in the trial of her life, got David Crowder's "How He Loves Us."

    I am clapping my hands in joy for you; you really gave the devil a black eye continuing on when it was hard!
