As our singing schedule started to unfold for our 38th year, we were blessed with an exciting weekend to resume singing at Thayer Freewill Baptist Church, on March 8th. Due to the recent health crisis and the recommended social distancing, we have had to reschedule some dates; however, this too shall pass. I’m reminded of the lyrics of the song Broken World, that says, “This broken world is cradled by a Savior, and nothing here can take Him by surprise.” He remains in control, and we will soon resume lifting up His name in song. “But until then, my heart can go on singing; until then, with joy I’ll carry on! Until the day my eyes behold that city; until the day, God calls me home!”
I took a walk down memory lane today and visited my childhood church home. As I stood there looking at how time has taken its toll on the building, I was reminded, however, that the prayers and worship that took place in that precious little one room will forever be settled in Heaven. I remember the saints of God singing, shouting and praising God, and that very altar is where I gave my heart and soul to Him! Our precious Mother stood behind that sacred pulpit and preached for years, and Daddy prayed at the end of that altar. As I knelt today at that altar covered with dust, tears came as I thanked my Savior for saving my soul, and even though that was 37 years ago, it all seemed so real today! Dear friend, do you remember the place where you surrendered to Christ? I urge you to take a moment today and thank Him for saving you and calling you to be one of His own.
