Day 5: Do something you love
Tonight was the second night service for the year, and I am really glad that it was because it was most definitely my ‘do something you love’. I love being there. When there is no night service through January, while I enjoy the decrease in responsibility, there is a bit of a hole in my life. I know that church isn’t the be all and end all of my faith, but I also know that it is a super important part, gathering together, sharing, learning and growing together. It’s not perfect, but that’s because it made of imperfect people… but there is a lot of love and it’s good.
Tonight I was really encouraged by the honesty of the worship and in fact the whole service, it was real, not a show, or a routine, but passionate, honest and simple… it’s moments like that that I wish I could just stop time and soak it up. I don’t think I stop often enough to just sit and be still in the presence of God. But I know it’s something that I need to do more often… because it’s good… really really good.
This year our church, in particular this service and the youth and young adults bit, is going through yet another transition time but I am really excited about what’s about to happen, and hopefully the lives that will be changed with it and through it, including my own as I continue to grow and become closer and closer to the person that God wants me to be. I am glad to be a part of the army, and to call this place my spiritual home, I know it is where I am meant to be and am glad that it will continue to be my ‘do something you love’ for a long long time to come.
