A Life Well Loved

Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.
Luke 12:7 ESV

Joan* (not her real name) sits in the corner of the room in her wheel chair with a smile. She cannot make cookies any longer for the grandchildren. Joan will not go to choir practice or sing in the Easter pageant this year. In the harsh viewpoint of the world, Joan’s is a useless life. But when God looks down He sees a happy child who gave joy to her parents. He remembers a loving wife, a wise mother and a caring neighbor. Most of all God has engraved on His heart the very moment Joan gave her life to Him and today after more than 80 years it is still His. So when Jesus walks by her in the wheel chair He stops and delightedly gives her all His attention. Because in Joan Jesus sees not a life that is useless but a life that has been well lived and loved by God!

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.

    These recent posts share little snap shots of what God is doing in our local nursing home community. Please be praying for God to extend that grace in a special way this week. I will be attending the ribbon cutting at a new hospice opening in our city. As that God would open a door there, inspire new volunteers to enter into training and carry the hope and comfort of the gospel into this facility. Thanks to all our readers who share a concern and burden for those in long term care. Have a blessed week!
