A preacher and a song leader in a certain church were not getting along. This began to spill over into the worship service. One week the preacher preached on commitment, and how we should dedicate ourselves to service. The song leader then led the song, "I shall not be moved".
The next Sunday, he preached on giving and how we should gladly give to God. The song leader then led the song, "Jesus paid it all".
The next Sunday, he preached on gossip and how we should watch our tongues. The song leader led, "I love to tell the story".
The preacher became disgusted over the situation, and the next Sunday told the congregation he was considering resigning. The song leader led the song, "Oh, Why not tonight".
The preacher resigned the next week and told the congregation that it was Jesus that brought him there and it was Jesus that was taking him away. The song leader led, "What a friend we have in Jesus".
I am just an ordinary girl who is loved by an extraordinary God and I seek to love others the same way. I love to bake, read, do puzzles, watch Hallmark movies, and go shopping with my mom! This blog was created as a place where I could share some thoughts that the Lord has shown me and to be an encouragement to others who desire to know Him in a deeper way. My prayer is to learn to sit still and trust God with my future.
