It has been a year since I started going back to church. It has been a good year, I am finally “home” after 24 years of wandering. The outward is Church, hearing God’s word preached and worshiping Him. I am part of the body of Christ, the members of this little Church.
Far more important is the inward changes. I have a regular devotional time, reading the bible and praying. I have a prayer partner and we have seen marvelous answers to our prayers. I am responding to what I feel is God’s leading in my life. I want Him in charge even though, I sometimes try to be in charge, I am learning to yield my will bit by bit. It is a journey and changes do not happen all at once. I heard someone once say, “we take up our cross, when we cross our will”. My will is always fighting to stay in control.
I have started a great program called Celebrate Recovery, where we address our habits, hurts and hangups. It is interesting the group I go to is in my former church. I know healing is going to come out of this as I yield to Him and follow the steps and do a Spiritual Inventory.. I am not perfect but I serve a God who is.
