September 23 – Surprise!

What did we think would come next? After our morning offering:

“Holy, holy, holy Lord,
God of power and might;
heaven and earth are filled with Your glory?”

Now . . . bowing? Scripture reading? Silence? More worship?

Good idea! Great idea!

But first . . . dear ones . . . first . . . find joy!

Before anything else, before we open our Bibles or even fall on our knees, unless we can do both, simultaneously, let us find joy. Let us not bring a morose, defeated, self-referential heart before our God this morning.

Let’s find JOY, and see where it takes us at break of day!
