This post has been a long time in coming. I've thought it many times over the past few months. I love each and everyone of you so much. Every Sunday as I enter into worship, I'm so overwhelmed with the love of Jesus. Sometimes, (I'm being honest here) getting to church is a HUGE battle-actually most times it's a huge battle at our house. No one's clothes ever seem to work like we planned or shoes go missing at the last minute or socks are misplaced-anyway the grumpiest of grumpy moods begins to take over and you wonder, "why bother?" Well, I must say week after week once I get there, I am able to relax and rest in Jesus. Each week I am overcome with the love and grace of Jesus. Each of you play a HUGE role in this. You may not realize it, but you do. I look around and see people filled to capacity with that Jesus water I was talking about a few posts back. That Jesus water that you are drinking IS spilling over to others and I think Dewey was right this morning. He referenced EMC(maybe in the bulletin-can't remember if I read it or he said it) as being on the brink of something BIG for Jesus. I agree with that. There is life at EMC and it is abundant. It comes from Jesus, but you guys are open to receive it and share it. That's a great thing and I don't think it will go unnoticed in the kingdom of God. Your labor is paying off. Hang on tight for the ride. You are just beginning to race downhill on that roller coaster.
Anyway, my whole point behind this is a GREAT, BIG, HUGE thank you for making church enjoyable and an actual renewal after a long week. I always feel refreshed and recharged after that morning service. Each of you play a different role in the service, but all of you are needed and used.
I love you guys!!!
