It is Holy Saturday. I woke to pray and give thanks, to praise the Lord God. Then I kept hearing the words, “Holy, Holy, Holy”. I was moved to search for music. I stumbled upon this intimately familiar praise song that I loved singing with all at church- before when we had the freedom of gathering in person. As I listened, I just dissolved into a heap of joyful tears. I gazed at all of the worshippers in the video clustered tightly together with their arms raised. I saw us just a short time ago. I pray for our future gatherings and give thanks for the Spirit of Love that permeates and encourages us now.
The Love of Jesus Christ binds us together closer than ever. I believe that though we are physically separated, our hearts are more united than ever before.
We are United in Prayer that Sees Jesus. We are here to Worship God.
It equips us now to look to the power of our Risen Lord to guide us each individually and as His Unified Family in this Journey set before us. He sees the way and is leading faithfully and lovingly. Our hearts are set to worship. We are devoted to worship from wherever we are. This and any trial can only increase a heart’s fortitude as we remember to see Jesus and follow His command to love the Father with all of our hearts, mind, and strength.
Matthew 22:37 –And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
