God is Great, God is Good

The worship service yesterday morning at Trinity Baptist was again a WOW! experience. The first song was "To God be the Glory" which is a very special song to me. This was followed by "Forever God is Faithful" and "Great is Thy Faithfulness." There was no sermon, just singing with the choir and testimonies. The pastor said a few words and read Romans 8:35-39. That's when the tears came, tears of joy, rejoicing in the goodness of God, His great faithfulness. No matter how unfaithful we have been, He is always faithful, always keeping His promises. Nothing can separate us from His love. In other words, there is nothing we can do to make God love us less.

One of the remarks the pastor made was, "The more grateful we are, the more expressive we are in our giving of thanks, the more God will delight to lavish His blessings on us." Later on in the service we sang a song by Tommy Walker - "We Will Remember". "Throughout the ages you have been our Shelter, our Peace in the midst of the storm. You have been so good to me." Another song was, "Think about His love, Think about His goodness, Think about His grace, That's brought us through. Great is the measure of our Father's love."

I know as the weeks will turn to months, the weariness of going through all this stress will not be easy, but I want to keep looking for little wow! moments to keep me going.

    Hi Martha,
    You are so right about the "wow" moments. Keep knowing that God is with you in this journey and may you feel His arms of love and support wrapped around you.
