Slow Down!

But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.            Matthew 6:6 NIV

There are always dangerous curves ahead in life, but if you are anything like me you find the urge to I hit the ground running in the morning. We are anxious to not fall behind, but speeding ahead is not great if you are on the Titanic sailing straight into an iceberg!

Jesus teaches us that before we talk to anyone, do anything or make any plans we need to go alone with our Father. Remember that angels fly, the unbelieving world is always on the run but throughout the Bible we read that God walks. If we want to spend our day close to Him we must find a way to slow down our pace so that we can hear His voice and walk one step at a time with Jesus!

Never travel faster than your guardian angel can fly. Mother Teresa

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.
