I Stand In Awe

If you read the Houston Chronicle today, February 25,2011, you saw that the Church of the Redeemer in Houston, Texas will be closing its doors this weekend. This blog does not have the space to describe the amazing things that the Lord did in the 40 years that God has been knitting lives together and showing His amazing grace,power, and love to people who attended that church. I went to the last Friday night service that will ever be held. I saw many faces of people that I have loved over those years. They continue to be a large part of my extended family. But, as much as we have loved the music and the mural that radiates a presence, the body of believers gathered still holds their gaze on the beauty of the living Christ. We worshipped God tonight afresh. He alone is worthy of all of our worship. He is not a building. He lives in the heart of every believer and I believe He was blessed by the outpouring of love that we gave to Him and to each other tonight. We all long for that great outpouring that is promised in the last days.I must repeat a prayer from Habakkuk 3:2 that I prayed in that same building 3 weeks before Billy went to be with Jesus........" Lord, I have heard of your fame;I stand in awe of your deeds, O Lord. Renew them in our day and in our time make them known" I proclaim my excitement for the outpouring of His Spirit that He is getting ready the send to us. Thank you, Father. I love you, Jennifer
