An Amazing Day

Words are difficult to describe the awesomeness of the Spirit of God this Sunday. The Holy Spirit ministered to young, old, new christians, and old christians. It was a blessed day. When the we ask for those wanting prayer to come forward it seemed to start slow. One came, then another, and then another. However with each prayer the Lord seemed to fill the place more and more. The Spirit of God came in wave after wave. People came forward saying “I believe God is going to heal ...” and then we prayed. Several left saying they were certain God had heard their prayers and was confident God had healed them and was healing them. One lady stated she had never felt God like she felt Sunday morning. One young lady gave her life back over to God while several others came on their own to pray in the alters for a closer walk with God. Tears, shouts, worship, and freedom are just a few words that could be used to describe what happened during this service. At about 20 minutes after noon most everyone was still in the church and not in any rush to leave. In fact people left very slow, still enjoy the sweet Holy Spirit. When our evening service came several came early just talking about the morning service and how God ministered. It was so wonderful to hear the testimonies of how God touched each one. While Sunday night was different, the day was capped off by a women, who has been away from God a long time, came in the door with tears in her eyes. At the end of the service she came forward to pray and to turn her life back over to God. The only way to describe it was she ‘prayed through’ until she knew something was different.

Praise God for His unfailing love!!

An Article worth the reading

We have a published writer in our congregation. Sister Nona was published in the Guidepost magazine in the April addition. In the article she tells her story of being a good neighbor and not waiting on someone else to be one. I hope you enjoy it.

Praise God

Sunday was a glorious day. During the morning service the Holy Spirit blessed us in so many ways. As some came up for prayer for their bodies, God blessed them Spiritually as well. Our dear Spiritual Mother of 91 danced and was slain in the Spirit while another sister danced before the Lord as the Spirit moved her. Many were lost in a state of worship. Praise God! Our sermon was simply about taking up the Yoke of Christ. Work with Him, Learn from Him, Grow with Him, and Trust Him. As we work alongside of the Lord, it is easy and it is light.

Sunday night we was blessed by Tanner Gann. Tanner is 16 and did a amazing job preaching the Gospel. He was anointed and he was full of the Spirit. He shared with us about regaining order in our lives. The Glory of the Lord follows order. If we will get our lives and our churches in order the Glory of the Lord will show up in a real way that our senses can experience. Praise God- Let’s get our lives in order - We desire the Full Glory of the Lord!!!

Lighten your Load

Sunday was an amazing day. The Spirit of the Lord was so powerful and so gentle. During the worship one lady came and was worshiping and seeking the Lord in the altar. The sermon was about Jesus’ call to lighten our load as he spoke in Matthew 11:28- ‘Come unto me.. all who are heavy and I will give you rest.’ The Lord had spoke clearly during the week that some were heavy and needed to lighten their load. The verse is clear but at the same time the depths of it are also powerful. If you are heavy with life (job, money, family, stress, or any problem) HE WILL GIVE you rest. It is free. If you are heavy with sin- He WILL GIVE YOU REST- a Renewal. If you are burdened down with the weight of religion and not relationship- Come He will give you REST. The key is that we COME. The promise is for rest. The requirement is us to come. And that is what many did at the end the sermon. Several came seeking the Lord and God blessed. One lady shared both at the end of service and then on another day how her load had become almost unbearable. She said it was just what was special ordered for her.

How wonderful is our Savior, who designs things just for us.

Join us this Sunday morning as we finish the chapter and see what Jesus directs us to after we have came to Him.

Be Anxious for Nothing

 Sunday was a wonderful day at Leesburg Church. While it is wonderful to gather with our brothers and sisters it makes all the difference for the Holy Spirit to breath upon His people as they gather. The Spirit of God was real and we praise God for it.

Sunday morning brought the Word of God on the subject ‘Be Anxious for Nothing.’ Paul writes to us in Phillipians that we should not be worried, or ‘anxious’ for anything. We know the God who created the universe. We live in a day that has endless reasons to worry. From health, to finances, to family, to tradgedy, to world events, and the worry of tommorow. We have reason to be worried or anxious in our own flesh. Yet Paul directs us to a higher reality that we don’t need to be worried. If we will press into God and give it all to Him we will find God’s peace and not our worries. This is not to pray in fear but to give things in prayer and trust in God. Paul ends this text with some direction of our thoughts that will keep our hearts full of peace.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Philippians 4:8 (NKJV)

We again were blessed by God with the presence of the Holy Spirit!!

I can only Imagine

First Sundays are always great at Leesburg Church. It is always a blessing to have our children come out and participate in worship and even lead us in a few songs as well. This one was no different. While some are shy, others are not, and they are trying to remember all the words, and sometimes you get glimpses of that pure heart wanting to worship. Thank God for children who can teach us if we will let them!

We were also blessed to have our Drama Team minister to us through a song entitled “I AM” by Eddie James. They did a great job and the Spirit of God was truly present. We are thankful for the time and dedication they gave to minister to us all!

The Sunday morning sermon was entitled “I Can Only Imagine.” In I Corithians 2 Paul writes about the Wisdom of God versus the wisdom of men. In the midst of this in verse 9, he mentions that “ Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” Paul was trying to inform the Corinthians of great wealth or great knowledge that would be given. He was explaining to them that God has things for them that their minds could not even imagine. We can not even imagine the things that God has planned, prepared, and purposed for us as well. God has great things for you, but not in our wisdom or understanding- only in His. If we want to recognize and see these things we must take the context of this chapter and learn three things - 1) Mature/Grow up in Christ, 2) Not listen to our (or others) wisdom (man’s), and 3) Listen to the Holy Spirit who reveals the great mysteries of God. If we will follow these steps we will experience what we can now only imagine!

God Bless you this week!
