Come to Church With Me!

This is going to be a weird post, but stick with me.

I felt compelled this morning that it was the right day to write the rest of that story. I’ve been praying for weeks that God would give me the right words. But when you open up your soul and show your scars to the whole wide world, it’s a little scary. I mean, my in-laws read this thing. But I want you all to really know me. Or no. Not me. I want you to know Him who could take what I was and change me the way He has, the way He’s still doing…

I want you to know how He loves us, and how that can change everything. EVERYTHING.

So with more than a little trepidation, I posted that blog this morning, and then went to church. I walked into a church with blaring music (that’s the way, uh-huh, uh-huh, I like it), and I couldn’t find my place fast enough to start worshiping my heart out to this song that has literally been my personal anthem the last few years:

And then this one was next, another of the songs that has rocked my world the last couple years:

And then, finally, they finished me off with this one, and I just stood there trembling, sobbing, and laughing because I got the message loud and clear. He loves me. I mean, come on, Lord, could you BE more obvious? I love you, Abba Father.

    Hi! Stumbled onto your blog doing a search for “ebina yochien”…God is good, as we are here at Atsugi (living in the lodge but soon to be off base), and I would love info on area off-base churches, etc. Curious where Foundations Church is?? Is that where you and your family attend? Also, interested in yochiens for my 3-year-old son…not sure there will be room at Ryosei Yochien…any others you can recommend? Please feel free to e-mail me at if you have a free second…if not, totally understand!! 🙂 Blessings to you!
