don't you just love to worship?

'The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty;
he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy;
he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee
with singing" (Zephaniah 3:17)

Don't you just love it when the Holy Spirit shows up so powerfully in your worship service?

Don't you just love the sound of the whole church lifting up their voices in such sweet unison and singing praises to our God and King?

Don't you just love the feeling of family among your fellowship of believers in your church congregation? I love walking down the halls and everywhere I look I see sisters and brothers in Christ greeting one another with smiles and big hugs. Showing genuine love and care for each other.

I love walking into the sanctuary and feeling the mighty power of His presence waiting for us. I love seeing the joy on peoples faces as they are so glad to be in the House of the Lord.

I love Sunday school. I love church!

I love being married to the pastor. I truly embrace my role as pastor's wife and I am thankful that God equips me day by day to be able to do my best for His glory.

I love corporate worship. I love private worship. I just love worship!

Don't you just love God's Word? I love how I can open the bible to any passage and it is God-breathed, inerrant and Holy.

Every word inspired by our Creator. Every word breathed from the mouth of our sovereign God. Every word is Life. Every word is Truth.

I love hearing the Word preached with power and conviction. With love and exhortation. I love it when the Word is brought straight from the Throne of Grace and dropped right into our hearts. I love it when the Word pierces deep and covers wide.

I am thankful that God draws us close. Opens our hearts. Gives us ears to hear. And blesses us with receptive spirits.

Don't you just love it when the Holy Spirit shows up so powerfully in your worship service?

Hi dear one, Yes I am in agreement with you; often I find myself crying during worship-just praising Him who deserves all praise. Worthy is the Lord. You are so incredibly precious and I too cherish you.
Hugs, Noreen
