We Have A World To Save

We attended church for the third time this week. Ever. Okay, well, as "non-mandatory" visitors. Meaning not for a wedding or funeral or baptism, but a Bonafide churchgoers. By now, we've navigated what to expect, where(abouts) we would sit, and how the service would run. All good on the technical.

As for the 'feels,' we hoped we would feel the way the previous visits made us feel, but we weren't positive it would happen. What ifs tried to creep in. But then the band began to play, and the singers began singing. The choir joined in on the chorus. I told my thoughts to fade into the background and my heart to receive the message. The chorus swelled and filled every pore and space in the room. I stopped thinking and allowed myself to feel. I glanced at my husband and saw he felt the same.

A sudden image, seemingly random, came to my mind: A man, stepping forward behind my husband and I, and placing his hands on our shoulders. That's it, nothing more. It was so sudden and clear that, even though I didn't actually feel a hand on my shoulder, I turned around.

Even as I asked myself, "What the heck was that all about," I understood. We found our church, our house of faith. We were home, and we were welcomed. It's now hours later, and I'm still awed, still smiling as I recount this experience.

Truth be told, faith comes incredibly easy to me. My heart has been telling me the truth for literally as long as I can remember. What has come hard, until now, is sharing and understanding my faith. But now is not the time for timid, tepid faith. Now is the time for bold and outspoken faith- faith known in your heart and in your mind by knowing the Word.

When they say everything changes when you are saved, I can tell you, firsthand, everything changes. So, if you are the "me" of months ago - tentatively dipping your toe in the water - I want you to know this: The water is beautiful, warm, and rich enough to hold you up when you fear you might drown. Come on in. We have a world to save.
