I made it out to Sequoia Church (above pic is from their website) today. I have been feeling so lost from God of late, lost in myself and in "my insulating thoughts." Today we talked about many things, one of them being how God pursues us...and I have to say I felt like that this week. I could feel God calling me back. One of the most significant callings this week was when I got home from running errands with the kids and found a note tucked in my door from my friend EM. The note said how much she cared and was worried about me and wanted to say how dear she thought I was. The funny thing is as I walked up to the door seeing the note I actually longed for someone to reach out..and I felt after reading the note like God was showing his Grace through this friend. After all, the wonderful friends in my life are certainly one of God's blessings.
I had an awesome day yesterday with friends at our LSS...and yet on my way home I was in tears...I felt like I was missing something...and here I found myself today walking in the doors to church this morning.
The music and singing (even the electric guitar solo) opened up my soul and I felt myself letting go of the stupid stuff (worries, material stuff, selfish stuff) and all of the mundane and negative poured out, I could feel his love for me pouring in to fill me.
I thought I would share a few of the tidbits I walked away with today...random tidbits..
"we go through brokenness: to identify with other people
Get out of your comfortable zone..I love his because I once read that when we feel God working in our lives and us working with him doing his work we sometimes feel out of place, a little like a crazy person. LOL
Don't go to church, BE THE CHURCH
Don't become RELIGIOUS....LOVE THIS!!! When asked what denomination Sequoia is...its not this or that...or Catholic or Baptist...its a church of believers, followers, Christians! Proudly the NON Typical Church (I agree they play BEATLES!!!)
Today was a very GOOD DAY and I feel FULL.
