Today, this first Sunday in the New Year, I went to church for the first time in a long time. A friends daughter and her husband offered to pick me up and take me to church with them and sort of a surprise for my friend.
I woke up this morning and found myself saying, “Hey God, I’m going to visit your house today.”
I really enjoyed the service. We sang some songs I’d never heard before but they had the big screen up front that showed the words. Not the traditional songs I’m used to but very nice.
I felt a little bit awkward; I kept losing my wrap, couldn’t keep track of my glasses and wore jeans. My mother would be mortified to see me wear jeans in church but I still cannot fit in my dress pants yet. I guess it’s time to look for some clothes in the thrift stores next time we go “thrifting.”
I figured that God would rather me come in jeans, than not come at all.
I took my first Communion today or at least I think it’s the first time. I can’t remember ever doing that before.
I decided to not really work today as it is Sunday and a day of rest. I was going to try some painting but I ended up looking on Pinterest and found what some people are doing now called “Bible Journaling.”
At first I was really put off by it. You’re not supposed to deface a Bible. But again, the more I look at it and see the reasoning behind it, I think it’s a good thing. I wonder, “God, am I supposed to be going in that direction with my online business?”
I saved a couple of pages to look through again at a later time.
Since I’ve given my life to Christ, I feel like there is a sense of calm that I haven’t felt in a long time, if ever. I trust that God will show me a way if I am to get another car and also show me other things that I am supposed to do. I left it up to him about going to church and I was given a ride by a friends daughter. I thank you God for providing a ride to church in this New Year.
I’m tired and looks like Kindle will read the Bible verses to me tonight. My eyes are a bit blurry.
Good night, Jesus and thank you for this day.
