Super Sunday

We had a blast this Sunday. We were supposed to have our friend Andrew Shearman with us for the weekend at church, but there was a bit of a mix up so Mark had to step into the mix.

It was an incredible day. We had what was probably our biggest crowd on a Sunday - 750 people. Although we have over 900 people on our database that regularly attend MKCC that's the biggest crowd that has turned up in any one Sunday.

One of the songs really rocked my world. A Chris Tomlin song - Everlasting God. Part of the lyrics:

You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint
You won't grow weary
You're the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need
You lift us up on wings like eagles

Taken from Isaiah 40 it really is an incredible song. It made me remember again just who is on our side. God is for us not against us. Too many time I go into fix it mode or defence mode trying to do things in my own strength. I need to remember that the key to life is waiting on the Lord. I am promised that I will gain new strength when I wait on the Lord. In the cold light of day why would I want to do anything else. It surely is madness that so often I do anything but.

I need to wait on the Lord for strength, wisdom and direction.
