765 (a shortened version of #765)
God’s Score!!! 18Nov
Oh Lord, there’s nothing not in Your purview to raise your children’s spirits…
The waves of Holy Spirit music, Lord, were rolling over and around and thru Your children.
The waves of children’s flags, Lord!!! That made my eyes widened, WOW. Your Holy Spirit knowingly brought JOY and childlike wonder to the surface of my whole personal being as a former VBS director when the pastor handed small colorful banner flags to the children at the beginning of the service. I raised my hand for one too, my VBS-soul was screaming inside for one, but no one saw me up in the band section. Next time I will bring my own banner flag, well maybe not, truly I am perfectly content, I do have a microphone cord that I love to wiggle and waves of Joy out of my heart. Flags or no flags Lord, I want to be in Your service forever, Lord. YOU ARE THE WIND INSIDE MY SAILS.
And You Lord are the Anchor in the waves. Yes, You Lord are my song.
Thru His Living Water the Lord stirs each us out of His mud (dust plus Living Water). We are EXACTLY timed in His Score. Pinned to His to-do list. On His sticky note to be moved around. Poised to be raised like a praise flag. To sing for Him.
God’s plan uses His own unfathomable checklist to find us where we are – down to knowledge of tracking every hair on our head. God’s love knows no bounds, and He’s got this giant elaborate Way to personally bring us to faith. Then bring us into the fold. Then bring us even further, into the flag crew and into the praise team. It’s not a linear list that God has, it’s a mesh of His netted orchestration.
Our orchestrating score? HIS.
We are made HIS – to be HEALED – to bear fruit – to help others HEAR.
I am just men yet Jesus chose to call me. Jesus calls you too.
Jesus says to each of us as disciples: “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last”
We are made to realize that we are HIS.
Grab your Banner for Him. Wave it for JOY. You were born into life and thru His lifeblood you can sing forever.
Forever, God is Faithful.
You were made from His dust – Make the most out of every speck.
“This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. This is my command: Love each other.” John 15
