Transformed by His presence!

Ever just run smack dab into God? And when you collide, you are transformed?

That is what happened today. This morning's service was just amazing! I am so glad Caleb woke up in time for us to get to church! I definitely needed all that was said and sung! It started with the praise set... here are the phrases that captured my heart and why:

In Sing to the King "He's all I need" -I've not listened very well to the sermon I preached.... and I am still thirsty!

In Arise "Arise, take Your place" -He needs to take His place at the top of my priorities.

In Here I am to Worship "I'll never know how much it cost, to see my sin upon that cross" -I say it all the time: if He died for you, is it too much to ask that you get up a few minutes early to spend time with Him? What a kick butt challenge for myself today

In Amazing Grace "My God, My Savior has ransomed me and like a flood His mercy reigns..." -And mercifully, He still calls me- still invites me to spend time with Him- my God invites me. Whoa. That's huge and I still don't take Him up on His offer enough. I am overwhelmed by His mercy- that He doesn't chastise me for neglecting Him, but instead extends the invitation with more fervor.

And then PJ's sermon... am I praying 10 minutes a day? nope! am I reading at least a chapter of the Word a day? nope! ugh! this is my confession. I'm sure we're all in the same boat. let's encourage one another to run hard after Him- to give up whatever it is that is blocking us from having time for Him and pursue Him passionately!!!! Praising Him for being obviously present this morning!
