My heart pounds as I think of this.
It leaps within me.
Job 37:1 NLT
Today, very early this morning, we had a death in our family. In honor of his short time here on earth, and his first day in Heaven, today’s Messy Worship is going to be MIA: MESSY in Action. I will be hugging with abandon, crying whenever the urge falls on me, and keeping a place of quiet joy in my heart because I know God has a plan.
Dear Lord, thank you for giving us life here on earth and an life eternal with you in heaven. Help us to use these challenging times of mourning to remind us that this is not our home. Use us to expand your kingdom here on earth with generous, ceaseless acts of loving kindness. In your Son’s perfect name we pray, Amen.
