Thank You for all the Sundays of my life

Lord,
Sometimes I don’t want to go to church
I get this feeling that comes over me
It tells me I’ve done it all before
I get ready
Then the phone rings
I get caught up in a conversation
I look up at the clock
I could still make it
There’s a tussle going on in my mind
Will I will I not?
I rush in just a few minutes late 
I settle down
I begin to think
I start to pray
I look around
Then gradually
I realise
It’s not about me
Its all about You
I have so much for which to be thankful
I begin to reformat  my ideas
I put conversations in perspective
I hear a word spoken that changes my mood
I see the week ahead in a different light
I become more aware that I’m not alone
There’s more involved in going to church than simply going
I come away thinking 
Why would I not want to go to Church?

Lord
Thank for all the Sundays of my life

Hebrews 10: 23-25

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
