Walking up the path to church today, I prayed specifically for three needs. My prayer went something like this, “Lord, there is so much spinning in my mind, but I want to hear You. I want to meet You in this place of worship. I want to watch everything else melt away so that I can hear Your answers to my prayer. Lord, I have three struggles this morning that are getting the best of me. Father, speak to me. Father, clear my mind and open my heart so that I can hear Your instructions. I realize You can speak to me any time or anywhere, but Lord, I need You now.”
He showed up because I showed up. And, that’s why I go to church.
