Thankfulness {Day 6} Our Church


I am thankful for our church. When I usually speak of the church, I am talking about the global church - the body of Christ. This time, I am still referring to the body of believers; but more specifically, the people who attend Centennial Bible Church.

Is it a perfect church? Sure looks like it from the outside. That is one gorgeous building!

But no, the people are not perfect. They are all sinners just like me. I can expect to be let down. I can expect for the programs to be flawed. I can expect many opportuntities to complain (which unfortunately I do way too often - gulp).

But I love these people. We are knit together with a love for Christ and therefore a love for each other. My soul feels so refreshed when I am sitting in the blue chairs (ok, not my head because of the vertigo, but my soul is refreshed FOR SURE). I know I am sitting in a room of people who truly care about me and my family.

I get to praise and worship our Lord together.

We sit under the teaching of a wonderfully gifted Pastor.

We get to serve with the kids and teach them about God. More importantly, we are forming relationships with the kids and loving on them.

What a wonderful gift when family is not close (either in distance or in heart)!

And when I am not there, I miss it.

God had a wonderful thing in mind when He thought of the local church and I am ever so grateful!

I love to hear from my readers so if you are thinking something that is beneficial and profitable (which doesn't mean you have to agree with me, but at least be nice), then I'd love to hear from you!
