Day 1 - Acclamation Week 2018
There was definitely a mix of emotions as everyone walked through the church doors this morning. For many, it was expectation and excitement for the next week. Meeting up with friends, and the joy of seeing familiar faces. For some of us, or at least myself, a bundle of nerves. There was excitement and fear, it took an act of God to even get me to come. Satan tries so hard to put a stop to anything that brings glory to God. Listening to what others went through to get to Acclamation shows us how much of a battle there is. Everything from sickness, to injury, to loss of their voice… and every member of Acclamation has a unique role. Much like the church of Christ, when we come together, united to worship, the creation, recognizing its Creator, with hearts bowed low, voices lifted up, we are filled with a complete awe of HIs goodness and mercy. We are all on a journey. A journey to be closer with the Father. When we first started singing this morning, the harmony just flowed. I was so humbled that God gifts us with such natural instruments. The song selections for this year’s programs bring both reverence and hope. One song speaks of crossing over into eternity with hope, while another heed a warning of God’s judgment. I believe God is working this week in each heart of those in this group. And my prayer is that those who listen to these songs will not hear us, but the Father speaking to them. Come, let us worship together…
