My daughter Haleys birthday party is next Friday and she is so excited!!! It got me thinking about what Pastor Jim has been talking about the last few weeks. He has been challenging us to examine our relationships with God. Are we in a relationship seeking him, and anticipating being in his presence, and following him in everything we do. Are we courting him, or dating him. Hmmm! Wow dating him until something else comes along, or coming to church because that is what we do. It becomes religion after a while. I fear the day when we lose the relationship and we stop anticipating being in His presence. For me remembering that His mercies are new everyday and that He Loves me in spite of my mistakes. I Love going to church, or even just being home with the worship music on and waking up each morning thankful for another day and looking forward to what God has planned for the day.
