During the worship service at Grace this morning, we sang Joyful Joyful, We Adore You. I haven’t heard this song in a while, and NEVER before have I heard it the way I heard it today.
As we were singing, I could feel God’s presence as I have never felt it before. It was as if God was in that room with us, standing right next to me. It was the first time I’d ever felt EVERYONE around me shouting out their praise to the Lord. It was breathtaking.
The worship band at Grace is always wonderful, but today, there was something different. There was a joyful presence that seemed to take control.
You see, I was struggling this morning. I wasn’t feeling very well, combined with being tired, but as we started worshiping…none of that mattered. It felt like God and me were the only ones in that room.
“melt the clouds of sin and sadness, drive the dark of doubt away”
Our God never ceases to amaze me.
