From the Heart of Your Pastor …

Here I sit at the desk in my study/office late on a Saturday afternoon and my heart is breaking as I picture our time of worship tomorrow. As I go over my sermon again and add a few words here and there I am having trouble seeing my computer screen. Turns out there is no problem with my computer. The problem is that it is difficult to bring words on a screen into focus when my eyes are full of tears. My eyes are full of tears as I picture each of you and wonder how these words will impact you.

I desperately long for the words I have prayed over and prepared to make a difference. I am praying that you will hear much more than my words. I am crying out to God for you to hear from him as we worship tomorrow. My prayer is not for me to preach a great sermon, don’t get me wrong I hope that it is great but my greater desire is for God’s voice to be louder than mine.

This is just a reminder that you are being thought of as I prepare for tomorrow. If you are not a part of either of my congregations I am confident that your pastor is praying for and thinking of you tonight as he/she finishes preparations.

So tonight, rest assured that you have been prayed for and will be prayed for again before we gather tomorrow and worship together.

I am getting back to going over this sermon and picturing you in worship.

Here’s hoping you connect with the sermon tomorrow, but more importantly that you allow God to speak to you in worship tomorrow.
