This is my story, this is my song praising my Savior all the day long are just a few of the lyrics to that great hymn Blessed Assurance. I find myself thinking about this more and more. I can’t wait until I don’t have to worry about how long a meeting or Zoom call is or how much longer I have to wait on hold to talk to someone. Heaven doesn’t have any need for clocks. I am longing for that place. Can there really be too much worship? Can songs really be too long in heaven? Just curious to know what you think?
What good is leadership and membership without any fellowship? My food for thought: “Learning to be more like Christ involves the fellowship of serving others and staying connected to people. Sometimes we have to break bread to breakthrough.”
When was the last time you ate a meal with someone to stay connected?
As I start to focus on this year ending I am reflecting on various things such as being a little off track. I don’t like being off track so getting back on is always a good thing for me. I realize sometimes I messed up. I’ve made mistakes and I felt bad because I have missed the mark completely. I may have gotten off track, lost focus or lost my balance. Sometimes it happened at work, sometimes it was at home and other times at church. I’ve set spiritual goals, personal goals and life goals trying to be both purposeful and intentional. I start off good saying I will read and study more, pray more, watch what I eat, give more, serve others more. I will take time out for God, take time out for me, take time out for others and so forth. Each time I ‘ve gotten off track I learned a lesson about living on pitch. When I am off track on the job, off track with my health and wellness, off track with my relationships I must check how I am living and how much I am giving. I have learned my mistakes & mess ups are all based on the issues of life. I’ve learned a few lessons this year from the issues of life unfolding. For me, living on pitch involves full-time commitments, devotion to God and discipline. It doesn’t mean perfection. It doesn’t mean I won’t ever fall off track or lose focus at times when life happens. It just means I thank God He restores my soul. It means I thank God for brand new mercies every morning. It means I do not lose heart. Now that’s what I call Living on Pitch.
