Too bad this is one of the most awesome communities I have ever come across.
"have you ever dated someone and you just knew, from the first time you met her (him), that she (he) was the one you wanted to spend your life with? As you laughed and talked and marveled together, you felt your love deepen to a heart bond that you knew you never wanted to free yourself from. And have you ever been shocked to find one day that the one you loved so deeply and who you thought loved you just as passionately, had been dating other guys (girls) and, moreover, was spending more and more of her (his) time with your worst enemy? Have you ever had to literally turn a lover over to a mortal enemy to allow her (him) to find our for herself (himself) what his (her) intentions toward her (him) really were? Have you ever had to lie in bed knowing she (he) was believing his (her) lies and was having sex with him (her) every night? Have you ever sat helplessly by in a parking lot, while your enemy and his (her) friends took turns raping your lover even as you sat nearby, unable to win her (his) heart enough so she (he) would trust you to rescue her (him)? Have you ever called this one you had loved for so long, even the day after her (his) rape, and asked her (him) if she (he) was ready to come back to you only to have her (him) say her (his) heart was still captured by your enemy? Have you ever watched your lover's beauty slowly diminish and fade in a haze of alcohol, drugs, occult practices, and infant sacrifice until she (he) is no longer recognizable in body or soul? Have you ever loved one so much that you even send your only son to talk with her (him) about your love for her (him), knowing that he will be killed by her (him)? (And in spite of knowing all of this, he was willing to do it because he loved her (him), too, and believed you were meant for each other.)
"All this and more God has endured because of his refusal to stop loving us. Indeed the very depth and faithfulness of his love for us, along with his desire for our freely given love in return, are what give Satan the ammunition to wound God so deeply as he carries out his unceasing campaign to make us into God's enemy."
i know this is hard to read but bare with me, God loves us so much that he lets us decide what we want to do. he's the main character in the passage above. God lets us go and do things he would never have imagined for our lives. God watches us get lured into doing things that he never created us to enjoy, he watches us get tricked time and time again because we don't know any better. God is real love! don't let his love go!
I also am new to this community, and would like to say hi and God bless. It has been on my heart to find some other people with a heart for worship. Just a Question, is anyone else here on a worship team? Well anyway like i was saying, i saw this community and my heart jumped.....thanks for creating this community.
I am new to the community... but I have one request/suggestion for layout. It's really hard to read anyone's posts with the cool letters floating across the page. Is there anyway we could modify that?
We should, as a community, chosen for this mission, work as a team to lead people to Christ. Let's do it!
I don't know how yet. But we shuuud!
I've noticed that when I break out of my shyness and really worship God, that people always come up to me and tell me what a worshipper I am. That's always what I'm known for. Practically every time I get prohecied over, it starts with, "I was watching you worship..."
I wonder if we all worshipped God with our whole hearts, if things wouldn't be so moving for everyone. I wonder if everyone else just hides in a shell, and the reason that God blesses me so much through my worship is because I let Him take over. I can't help it though, it makes me feel so free.
I think everyone should cut loose, stop caring about how we look or who's watching us, and be ourselves. Be willing to get sweaty every Sunday dancing around and jumping for Jesus, not that we will, or that we will be compelled to do so, but have an open heart to worship God in whatever way is most beneficial for the both of you.
i've been looking for a worship community!
i'm so glad God sent me here.
