I have been reading in a great book, "Worship Matters," by Bob Kauflin.
I find it intense and yet interesting. Daniel & I have both started reading pieces of it since I bought it awhile ago, but now I am diving in completely. In the last chapter I read about how we, as believers, need to stay cross-focused. In everything, I believe, but in this instance he was talking about during worship. The author tells about how, without Jesus & the cross, we wouldn't even have the ability to worship this Almighty God who is so powerful. It made me feel so small, finite and humble.
It's true and I love his point.
Without Jesus coming to be our middle man, we would have had no chance of even worshipping the Lord of nations. But Jesus is our mediator. The in-between for us and God. And I am so thankful. It is entirely important that we stay focused on Jesus and remain cross-minded. We ought not lose sight of what Jesus gave us the chance to do. And then we ought not take it for granted. It's amazing.
Daniel could use your prayers of strength today. We're hoping for a specific breakthrough in his life! It's an exciting time.
Ok and now for a couple announcements:
Tuesday (if it doesn't rain) I will be hosting a 'Mommy & Me' group here at my house. We will simply let the kids play from 10:30-12:30 while us mommy's sit around and talk. Please come!!!
I will do a quick devotion and have snacks.
Bring a lawn chair.
Our church is sponsoring a pretty huge event this summer that we'd love for you to be a part of. We are hosting an outdoor Christian concert with lots of bands on the square. Most of them play hard music, but are fairly well known. We are hoping to reach alot of people, but the concert is completely free! All we want you to do is come out, listen, eat, and enjoy yourselves!
Daniel & I may also be singing some worship. We're still praying!
If you have any questions, you can write me. I'll get you the contact information that you may want or need!
Ok for now, that's all I got. I may be back sometime later to post more...but most likely not. I'm going to soak up the redheads and saturate myself in the Lord. Today is a beautiful day!
