It started when I woke up this morning. Most mornings I don't like getting out of bed; I want to stay there for that extra 5-10 minutes. Today I got up early and even had time to sit down and eat breakfast.
Then Jeremiah and I head off to church and it was an awesome service! The praise and worship was amazing and everything said just made sense. At the end of the service we were both in tears- mine was a happy cry just think about how wonderful God is and thanking Him for His goodness.
We came home for a quick lunch of leftovers and headed back to church for our first praise and worship practice. We are so excited about getting involved and getting back to singing! The practice went really well. I liked how we started practice with some general info and announcements and then we played a taboo type game which got everyone involved and having a good time, and then we got down to business.
Right now I'm sitting on the couch catching up with emails and things and Jeremiah is back at the church getting started with helping on the media team.
Jeremiah and I have talked a few times over the past week or so about how much we love our church (Heartland Community Church- HCC) and how it's really the first time that we've 100% clicked with a church.
HCC is doing servolutions in the community like adopting a school- we donated coats for the kids, took food for the teachers, and this coming weekend we will be repainting and working outside to make the school look better. We love how involved the church is with the community and there is the right balance of serving outside the church while still ministering to the needs of the people within the church.
Anyway, just felt like sharing that I'm having 'one of those days' that puts a smile on my face and a song in my heart.
*Here's the chorus of the song that was sang at the end of service today and it popped into my head again this afternoon.
I'm not going back, I'm moving ahead.
Here to declare to You my past is over in You
All things are made new, surrendered my life to Christ
I'm moving, moving forward.
