This morning my church will celebrate our one year anniversary of covenanting together as a church body. Y’all may remember my post from a year ago describing our joy (and emotion) as we signed covenant together. A year has passed and we can continue to testify of the Lord’s goodness and faithfulness.
Psalm 9 was part of my daily Bible reading this morning (yes, I’m a day behind for those of you keeping up) and I couldn’t help but think of this morning’s celebration as I read:
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;
I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.
I will be glad and exult in you;
I will sing praise to your name, O Most High. (Ps. 9:1-2)
Yes and amen.
I’ve said many times in this forum that a church split turned church plant is not an easy venture. But we give thanks, we exult in the Lord, we sing praise to His name–because He has been faithful. Because He has knit our hearts together as family. Because we are marvel over the glories of the gospel week after week. Because His deeds to us have been wonderful. Not always easy but wonderful. And worth it.
I am grateful. I am humbled.
May the Lord continue to do more than we ask or imagine in this, His church! For His kingdom’s glory!
