“ONE” Body

Well, I guess you have heard by now of all the destruction caused by the recent tornado’s across the South.  One of the towns affected is the City of Pleasant Grove.  Over half of the town was destroyed by the tornado that ripped through the state of Alabama staying on the ground for over 80 miles.  What it left in its wake was complete and utter devastation!  Pleasant Grove is the home town that Natalie and I have talked about.  It is where both of us grew up, went to high school and even got married.  Our church family have been affected with seven of its memebers being misplaced and homeless.

But out of all the devastation and heartache, shines a pure love like non other, and that is the LOVE of CHRIST.  The Community is pulling together helping one another and being the hands and feet of Jesus.

Everyone is acting as ONE body of Christ, no matter their age, denomination, gender, race, town, state….and that is what get’s me excited!

This past weekend we were singing “Forever Reign” at church and I was over powered with God’s love.  I wanted to share this song with you and hope they might touch you as well.  The words are:

“Lord, I’m running to Your arms, I’m running to Your arms, the riches of Your love, will always be enough, nothing compares to Your embrace, Light of the world, Forever Reign.  You are MORE, You are MORE than my words could ever say, You are LORD, You are LORD, all creation will proclaim, You are HERE, YOU are HERE, In Your presence I’m made Whole, You are GOD, YOU ARE GOD, of all else I’m letting go.

Please be in prayer for all those affected by these tornadoes.  My prayer is that God’s love is just poured out on all those affected and that they can rest in HIS embrace!
