My Sonday

Hello my friends, praying for you all to have a week filled with overflowing blessings. I hope yesterday was an awesome time of praise and worship for you. It certainly was for me, woo hoo!! I spent time remembering my dear big brother, it was the first year anniversary of his death yesterday. But, I find joy in knowing that I will see him again one day, until then, I carry him with me in my heart . Both morning, and evening services were wonderful at church yesterday. Pastor Fred preached the morning service, and then our youth pastor, pastor Heath, preached the evening service. When pastor Heath was through preaching last night, and it was altar call time, one of my friends came up to me, got me by the hand, and said come on. She had gathered several others also, a total of 12. When we got to the front of the church, she had us form a circle, and hold hands. She said the Lord had really been speaking to her during the service, and that our names had been laid upon her heart. She said we all needed to really pray for one another, our church family, and the lost. She said, are we all in agreement about this? We all said yes, and we began to pray aloud. My friends, we were storming the gates of heaven. It was so awesome, my heart was soaring. I prayed for more of Him, and less of me. I prayed for more faith, and to be blessed with whatever spiritual gifts He chooses to pour out upon me. I told Him over, and over how much I love Him. I could have stayed at church all night, just praising the lover of my soul. Thank You Lord, I love You.
