Where to begin?

This morning’s class covered 1 Samuel 16:1-13. When Sherri read verse 1, I felt a flood of emotions rising up within me.

“The LORD said to Samuel, “How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him as king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and be on your way; I am sending you to Jesse of Bethlehem. I have chosen one of his sons to be king.” verse 1

We had already decided to make our membership at 1st Baptist official this morning, but these words wrapped around me like a divine hug from my Father, confirming what we already knew to be true.

Sherri followed this verse by asking if anyone has ever allowed disappointment to keep them from moving forward, pointing out that God intends for us to move forward in joy.

Then there was the first song in today’s set-list, “Whatever You’re Doing”, by Sanctus Real. Check out the lyrics.

It’s time for healing time to move on
It’s time to fix what’s been broken too long
Time to make right what has been wrong
It’s time to find my way to where I belong
There’s a wave that’s crashing over me
All I can do is surrender

(Chorus)
Whatever you’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos somehow there’s peace
It’s hard to surrender to what I can’t see
but I’m giving in to something heavenly

Time for a milestone
Time to begin again
Reevaluate who I really am
Am I doing everything
to follow your will
or just climbing aimlessly over these hills
So show me what it is you want from me
I give everything I surrender… To…

(Chorus)

Time to face up Clean this old house
Time to breathe in and let everything out
That I’ve wanted to say for so many years
Time to release all my held back tears

Whatever you’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but I believe
You’re up to something bigger than me
Larger than life something heavenly

Whatever you’re doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but now I can see
This is something bigger than me
Larger than life
something heavenly
Something heavenly

It’s time to face up
Clean this old house
Time breathe in and let everything out

Joy and gratefulness flooded my heart (and eyes) as I sang this song, confident in the fact that the Lord truly was up to something bigger than me.

I didn’t think the day could get any better — that is, until we attended a cookout with lots of friends I hadn’t seen in awhile. Rooms were filled with laughter and the fellowship was sweet. I believe I caught a glimpse of heaven tonight.
