We celebrate! We celebrate because we know the treasures our Lord has in store! We rejoice in the discipline of celebration! It’s a choice! To see the world as hopeless is precisely where evil would want us. But to see the majesty of the Creator manifest its light in our intentional actions is to understand the glory in the body of Christ! We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other for the purpose of displaying His glory.
Sublette County! What a great place with great people! Filled with surprises! Lord we lift up the mighty local gospel sharing churches to You! Give them clear channels of communication to deliver Your Good News! May word of Your grace spread through the communities like the run off from the snow melt of the mountains! Flood the minds with reasons to celebrate Your Great Name! We thank You for the blessings of Sublette County.
Lord, I want to celebrate in someone else’s life, not just my own. My life has countless reasons to celebrate! Yes! I do celebrate that, but I don’t want to just stop there! I want to share in the celebration of what You do in someone else’s life! A new child! Finally, that promotion! The break of that addiction! The college degree achievement! The first mortgage! The fresh start through retirement! A restored marriage! A new friendship take root! Old friends on a wild adventure!
“Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can.” Ecclesiastes 3:11-12 NLT
I will never see Your true abundance on this earth! I could never possibly see every story from beginning to end. Which means each moment of celebration is increased in its value! So give me as many as my heart can take Lord, and if that’s not enough, then give me a bigger heart!
We celebrate You O’Sovereign Lord! Help us seek the change we need! In Jesus name we pray, amen!
