This week we had a good day of worship. Dr. Jerry Haag, president of the Florida Baptist Children’s Homes shared a message about taking care of the orphans, and it was very powerful. He incorporated many stories about his experiences with the organization, and the many orphaned children around the world to whom he has had the chance to minister. God’s hand in the planning was evident, as our invitation/response song, “I Will Go,” was a perfect way to close the message, with the lyric singing,
To the desperate eyes and reaching hands
To the suffering and the need
To the ones the world has cast aside
Where you want me I will be
I will go, I will go, I will go, Lord send me
To the world, to the lost, to the poor and hungry
Take everything I am, I’m clay within Your hands
I will go, I will go, send me
Let me not be blind with privilege
Give me eyes to see the pain
Let the blessing You’ve poured out on me
Not be spent on me in vain
Let this life be used for change
I wanna live for You
Go where You lead me
I wanna follow You
This song is quickly becoming one of my favorites, because it is such an earnest cry and prayer for our obedience as the Body of Christ, that we would be His hands and His feet to the world around us.
It was a good Mother’s Day service, and God was glorified by it. I pray that people heed the call to take care of the helpless. May we all heed that call!
Have a great week. I hope you had a great week of worship, wherever you were this week!
I will be on vacation next Sunday, so there won’t be any updates next week. I’ll be unplugged for a while, which is long overdue.
