Feed us O God as you have called us to feed others with your Word.
Comfort us O God as you have called us to comfort others with the Good News. Speak to us O God as you have called us to speak words of hope.
Heal us O God as you have called us to heal others with your amazing grace.
As we enter this time of worship may our praises be pleasing to your ears and may our hearts be filled to overflowing. May we leave our worries behind and be strengthened with your promises. We enter this place to praise you and may we leave this place doing the same. All glory and honor to you, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
This whole thing about feeding others has been on my heart this week as I reflect on the bombing at the Boston Marathon and the massive fertilizer plant explosion in Texas. So many questions but only one answer will suffice…God. I don’t know many of the “whys” of this world but I do know the Good News of God through Jesus Christ. And sometimes, like a newborn baby, we simply need something as simple as “milk” ~ that “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son that all who believe in him may not perish but have eternal life.” So let’s not theologize (Yes…I know that is not a word but I like it) too much but rather let’s remember the basics.
God loves you!
Have a great and blessed day
