So...I'm waiting

We had a fantastic guest speaker deliver our sermon yesterday. Very thought provoking and attention riveting! He spoke on "Knowing God's Will for You." Hey - aren't we all interested in that topic?!!

But before the sermon began, our wonderful choir delivered a powerful invitation to worship! How can you not want to meet with the Holy Spirit when your spirit is just singing, in every sense of the word!

Yet, as wonderful as the service was, it was also bittersweet. You see, the father and daughter that sang at My Sweet Hubby's funeral service sang a duet. They sang beautifully that day and they sang beautifully yesterday. And I knew that the song they sang would be today's Music Monday selection.

Because, really - aren't we all just...waiting?

Here are some Scripture verses from the sermon...I hope they bless you as they did me.

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9
"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2
"In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:6

"As we seek God's Will, we not only discover His Will, we discover HIM."
quoted from Jamie Smith's sermon, LBBC, 8/16/09

I struggled as a young woman in Bible college with "knowing God's will". How I wish I'd heard that then, know God and then you know His will. Thanks.
