i love my church... if only i had found it before my last semester.
today we worshipped in the ministry house, all crammed together singing and being in a front room and dining room, because the heat was out in the church building... it felt so right to be with these people, loving my Jesus, waiting on the Spirit.

the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners.
to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
and provide for those who grieve in Zion -
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness instead of mourning,
and a garment of priase instead of a spirit of despair.
they will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.
-isaiah 61:1-3

Abba, send Your Spirit, reign in me, let me be an oak for Your splendor and glory!
