Free to Worship




I thank God that I am free to worship Him!


Today, while sitting in the waiting room at the doctor's office, I saw the most uplifting and heart-warming thing. There were 2 women seated to my left, one older, one younger. The older woman took out her Bible and the younger woman took out a Bible study book. And there, in the waiting room, they began to study the Word of God. . . the older woman asking the younger questions about a previous passage, what stood out to her, any questions she had. The younger woman eager and willing to respond and to learn. Then they moved on to a passage of Scripture in the New Testament about the healing power of Jesus Christ.

How touching and how moving on so many levels! The older woman training the younger (Titus 2:3-5), the 2 of them unashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ (Romans 1:16), the liberty of worshiping right where they were (2 Corinthians 3:17).

It blessed my heart. I realize that there are many around the world who do not have this same freedom, because of the laws of the land. And so today, I am grateful that I live in a country in which my family and I can worship the LORD (Joshua 24:15).

Thank God that I can worship Him freely!

  1. Thanks for sharing this. It was encouraging to know that there are other Christians who are not ashamed of their faith. If we would only see that more in this country before we do lose the rights to openly share. I'm thankful for our freedom to worship freely too. I hope you are feeling well! The time must be getting close for your new arrival. How exciting! God bless.

  2. Hi Jennifer,

    I agree, as Christians we have to be more open in sharing our faith. And that openess comes in many ways. . .just as these women displayed.

    Baby and I are doing well, thank you and Praise God! It is getting close and the whole family is excited! Please keep us in prayer.
