I Choose to Worship

This morning as I was getting ready to crack open the Word, I was listening to some Christian music with the boys. And one great song led to another. An hour later I found myself sitting and praying and worshipping the Lord as I listed to some Church Online from Rend Collective.
 
That wasn’t really how I had planned to start my day.
I didn’t get to check off a chapter from my Bible reading plan list.
 
As I sang along with the YouTube worship, I started to get distracted by some of my other plans for the days and other projects I’m excited about. I was about to get up and check something the is very important, but then the words literally came up, “I choose to worship.” So I sat back down and re-engaged in how amazing God’s is.
 
Things always come up, even good things. How precious it is to sit and choose to worship. 
The week ahead may be filled with challenges, concerns, worries and stress. Seriously, almost every week is. Let’s choose to worship.
 
John 4:23-24
 
23 Yet a time is coming and has now comewhen the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
 

“Jesus didn’t say to worship in feelings and circumstance, but he said in spirit and truth.” Gareth Gilkeson

 
Oh, and while I was enjoying this holy moment in my living room, miracle #2 happened – my boys were playing together… WITHOUT FIGHTING! Praise God.

Refreshing Vacation Reading

Two weeks ago I went to our church library and picked up a copy of Last Cucumber on the VineThe story of Adriaan van Der Bijl and the transformation of the Nduga people.
 
It is an incredible privilege to read the history of what God did throughout the life of Adrain van Der Bijl. His commitment to the Nduga people was unwavering and incredible. The history of miracles that God did thought his time in Ndugaland are awesome. I find myself encouraged, amazed, and energized as I look ahead to how I can share these stories with my family, with others, and pray that I would be a willing servant to allow God to work mightily in my own life.
 
I was also surprised and amazed as I read about the others, like Elfrieda (Toews) van Der Bijl, that had an incredible ministry in Papua. It is remarkable how many people were medically trained, clinics established, believers baptized, and people discipled.
 
Praise God!
 
Now is a great time to buy your own copy of this encouraging book from our church office or on Amazon.
 

I’ve begun going over it again and reading the miracles to my children, especially the one about the mishap with Adriaan’s hand and the helicopter (p.197).

 
“We thank the Lord that you still have two hand to lift in praise to God.”
