Praise God For Sundays

Do you remember the post from September when I told you about the different churches we had visited? And how different they were, yet still had similarities? Well, since I last blogged I have visited quite a few other churches. We have visited with Stephen and without Stephen. A couple of times he preached at one church and because of the children's activities we went to another church.

I have seen church people at their very best. Let me tell you what an encouragment that has been. Not only to me, but also to my family.

After being so disheartened by church people it has been a balm to our souls to see the love of Christ shown to us.

One Sunday morning I wasn't feeling 100% and was thinking of what my excuses could be to stay home. I don't feel good, lunch needs to be fixed, need to get groceries, need a few more Christmas gifts bought, would love to stay home by myself and also a sinking feeling about how "Christians" treat other Christians.

I had excuses! With that last one being the best. My world had been rocked by leaders of a local church.

But I couldn't do it. I need to be around God's people. I need to worship with other believers. After all Psalms says that all that have breath praise the lord. I was breathing and I needed to be praising!

Please don't tell me I'm the only one that has Sundays like this.
