The problem with churches today is that people are walking away.
This bible belt has become a stain on this earth, it will only be time when the sky scrapers demolish these churches that have become everything but our heart’s home. It saddens me.
obviously not everyone, but Many.
Not because of God’s will, but of man’s forgetfulness of God’s purpose.
The day after Easter I went to a church across the street from where I live. As I walked in the guard said, "The sanctuary is closed.” I replied, “Seriously I just want to pray for a few minutes.” He says “Any day, but today sorry!”
So let’s look at this from all perspectives busy day , bad day etc….That same man on a Saturday a week later said the very same thing. And continued to explain “We don't just let people wander in off the street.” Ok, I get it but when it happened again the same way.
I thought, “For no man can be in the way of a love which is divine, God is love” There is no human time when God intervene's. Our spirit calls and he is ready, often waiting. I replied “Jesus walked the streets , moved mountains crossing deserts and through rivers to show us the way. Does God give us a time when our heart cries out and is in need of His grace? Is there a time when we the people are dying inside and need a quiet place to ask God to silence the world and speak?”He said, “Have I disrespected you?” I said that’s not a question you should ask me but God.
I walked away and went into the sanctuary to pray,
"We are all wanderers in this world, in search of a love that can only be found in the Grace and footsteps of Christ".
I though hmmm... Your Always open God, answering the call no matter when, where or why, always welcoming into home of internal bedrooms and bountiful glory. With no need of perfection because you are just as you made us...dependent upon loVe and the desire to be loVe.
I left the sanctuary, offered my thanks and left the guard this note:
“For the Bible says, “And it came to pass, that on one of those days, as he taught the people in the temple, and preached the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes came upon him with the elders, 2And spake unto him, saying, Tell us, by what authority doest thou these things? or who is he that gave thee this authority?
17And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner?
18Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
love having all my conversations,concerns and need brought and received by god, the only Insurance we have. SO don't ask whats in your wallet no-one cares and you can't by God just as much as you can't trademark the color blue..
