Tonight was our band communion night. We work it so that the band is a contact group in it's own right. Tonight I was leading it. We were tying in with the 40 day lent book which we're following as a church. (It's produced by thereishope.co.uk)
Not everyone is reading it, and those that are, are not necessarily following it religiously, which gave me a chance to open it up a bit. I had a question in my head; Where do you stand? and there words; Lordship, Friendship and Faith.
When I got there, in fact before I got there, I was not up for it: I was not in the mood at all. That could have been problematic, given that I was running it...
It's funny how God often shows you things when you're not looking. Within a few minutes of being with that group of people, I felt lifted. Awesome. What a great team we have. I feel very blessed by how we get on together and how we can just be ourselves.
Thank you God for using me tonight and for encouraging me through my friends.
I specifically made time for us to pray for each other and by the end of the night God had encouraged all of us. How cool is that!
