I have a secret to share...
Hi Rediscover Church Family and beyond, I trust and pray that this Wednesday will be filled with joy and excitement as you live for Jesus.
I also hope that you have managed to watch today's video. It is during this video that I talked about a secret job I had! It was a job I wasn’t allowed to give my identity away in, it felt so good to have a job where nobody knew what I was doing and I could see the answers to the problems I had answered printed in the weekly women’s magazine... Under no circumstances was I allowed to tell people what I was doing… it felt like being a secret agent … the only person who knew was my own ‘Moneypenny’ Andrea!
However, for weeks and weeks and weeks my name was never mentioned, in fact the identity I used had no recollection to who I really was…..
My prayer this week is that your 'Sunday person' is mirrored throughout the rest of the week! Let's each of us ask ourselves a question: would a family member or work colleague be shocked to see us in church if they watched online? Does our ‘Sunday Person’ match our 'Rest of the week Person’ or our ‘At home Person’ or even your ‘private person’?…. or is it time to recalibrate and as the definition 'make some small changes so we think and act differently.’?
Confession time, I have taken to singing to myself in the shower! Over the last week or so, a very old christian song that was sung in the early 70’s has become my morning prayer and I would like to share it with you now, It was called ‘Let the Beauty of Jesus be seen in me!’ the words are as follows:
Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me,
All His wonderful passion and purity;
O my Savior divine, All my being refine,
Till the beauty of Jesus be seen in me.
As we are determined to complete this week of prayer , can we use this time to recalibrate, draw closer to God and allow his spirit to rest in us so the character of God is seen in us… It has become more and more prevalent in my life that ‘I must decrease so HE may Increase’.
