“I scrub my hands with purest soap, then join hands with others in the great circle, dancing around your altar, God, singing God-songs at the top of my longs, telling God-stories.” Psalm 26.5
Today is a special day, Sabbath. For me Saturdays have slowly migrated from being true Sabbath celebrations in Sabbath funerals. I refuse to call Saturday funerals Sabbath. Sabbath is, by definition, a celebration where God gives special blessings to those that come and worship Him. While I am open to a wide range and types of worship, I will no longer call a wake attended by other Christian worship. When God is there and I cannot find at least one other to celebrate then I will go away and worship alone.
Today is a special day, I’m going to celebrate and learn more about have a dialogue with God. I am anticipating, quietly and resolutely, how God will be there and touch hearts and lives. I am confident God’s will pour out His blessing in visible quantities. Spending 11 hours together with God seekers learning and experiencing prayer is a special event!
Today is a special day; another personal milestone is marked. So many years ago my mother accepted the pain and delivered me into this world. I am confident that if she knew then of the hassle that would come her way during the next 20 years, she would have thought twice but knowing her would have made the same decision. Today is a day of remembering and treasuring the past and anticipating the future. Today is a day I can give my blessing of thanks and love to parents, spouse, family, and friends.
Today I go and join hands with other seekers in a big circle. I will dance and cry in celebration of who God is and what God does. I will celebrate His Sabbath, His love, His enduring patience. I will sing God-songs with every part of my soul.
Come let us tell God-stories together! I am waiting for the day we can do this together, forever with Him!
