Being in the presence of God can be very overwhelming! There have been time in prayer that I was almost afraid to open my eyes because of what I felt was standing right beside me!

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Pil 4:13.

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, constant in prayer. Rom 12:12

DUH! I forgot that truth....
We always use our church basements and it is more a turn of phrase, I guess. You have me laughing at that boo boo, for sure.

Basements here would be a very bad idea. I'd never seen one in my entire life until I visited my mother-in-law in PA. lol One of the reasons we have such beautiful cemeteries here is because of the tombs in which we bury people. The reason for that is we can't bury our dead underground. Six feet down here, you hit water. It would be great to have a big group of SparkFriends attend!

That would be January or February 2011?
I've never attended a Mardi Gras.
Maybe we could plan to camp in a church basement together! Ha, ha!

Some SparkFriends are planning to make a trip down here for Mardi Gras 2011 one of their rewards for achieving their goals. A few have suggested we try to turn it into a real SparkMeet. Wouldn't that be TOO awesome?!!

Wherever two or more are gathered together in His name, He is there in the midst of them. Oh, how richly He inhabits the praises of His people!! I am so happy for you. I walked away from full time ministry when I was a younger woman, after my pastor fell into sin and caused me (and many others) enormous pain. For a season I swore off church, period. I told God quite honestly that I loved Him but I'd had it with His kids. I wanted nothing more to do with them. Boy, oh boy, was the devil dancing on my grave!! It doesn't take too long a season to be out of fellowship with the saints, out from under the authority of a pastor, outside the nourishing feasts that regular teaching and preaching provides, outside the opportunities to minister that a fellowship of believers offers for us to weaken and stumble and fall. Guaranteed, that lone caribou at the back of the herd is gonna be the one to get eaten by that roaring lion!

When I finally surrendered to the tug of the Holy Spirit upon my heart and returned to church, I was skeptical at best. God is so good, so faithful, so wise! He knew exactly the family of brothers and sisters I needed. I could never have played church. I could never have been in fellowship with people who didn't actively love one another, love the lost, impact their community with the love of God in a real way. Since that time I have not stopped praising God. I never take church membership lightly now. I know what it costs and I know how precious it is. I don't know that I get overwhelmed but I certainly get overcome with gratitude to the One who's love fails not. I am SO happy with you and I rejoice over you!!

Clown, come on down, sister!! lol I'd love to share fellowship with you!!

Although this gathering isnt on Sunday morining, I am still being fed spiritually and gathering with others, As well as reading the scriptures every day and listening to a few sermons on line especially Sun morniing.

In fact tonight was eye opening because during my nightly reading the bible and the many stories in the old testament came to life to me in a parallel of something that happened in my life recently. ( I will post it in a Living Room Ministry lesson) believe me for me tonight the bible came alive and very real.

Psalms 139: 14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!

Yes, I do feel filled with the spirit in a very powerful way when I am able to go. I love the Lord and being in his house and praising his name completes my soul.
I seek it when I am able to go. I don't have a home church right now but I do go to several for "womens bible study"

I don't feel overwhelmed but I feel SPIRIT FILLED!

I have just returned back to churh diligently and it feels good to be on the battlefield for the Lord!
Trying/Doing things my way was not working at all!

I came across a scripture in the bible that said if you give your life to God you will be blessed abundantly he shall take care of all your needs.....but a man who tries to live life without Christ shall live a life of he'll and turmoil he shall be cursed!

2009 was a year that I left at the alter and was glad to!

God is sooooo wonderful my spirit is lifted when I think about his goodness and what he has bought me threw! I can't thank him or praise him enough!

It is amazing that just like the bible said the Devil is trying to attack me from every angle....I am rebuking the Devil he has no place in my life!

I can feel so much growth in me and the spirit of God moving that I feel his mercy on my life!

2010 is my year for a better me and a better relationship with God...and I already see that a relationship with God will cause you to loose thoose so called friends!...i'm striving to be a better Christian I'm not perfect and will not be but better...

I know being a better Christian will put all aspects of life in place and you can't fail with God because God is not failure!

Thanks Gospilclown.Milky can be good with cookies and / or cake, but theres some that are lactose intallerent,,lol

The message that I've gotten so far is , we are here to do gods work and what he wants us to do is found in the bible. from the first meeeting what I got is they live by what the scriptures teach ,, ( kinda reminded me of the living room ministry first page , where scriptures come alive( through Jesus Christ

Just keep looking God will direct you to the perfect place

Glad to read that you have located a warm, friendly, spiritual home. I moved over 2 years ago and have not yet found such a place.
Many meetings are "christian-lite" (notice the lower case) and they seem to keep their message very milky.

I am in a situation where a meaty, challenging, scripture based and Spirit drenched gathering is so very needed.

Very recently- like last night recent I walked in on a worship service at my buildings community center. There were about 20 if that many people there, and they all welcomed me with open arms and a smile.. i of course asked if it was an open group which they were and was told as long as I follow Christ and believe in the bible I was welcome.

Finally things get under way and the service starts with music and prayers ya know the normal stuff but it had been so long since I had been to a church service other then catholic I was over whelmed a little but the moment I relaxed I felt a great weight and relief as the feeling gripped me and during a few of the songs i cried as i normally do when I sing praises to God. So,the message starts and its on marriage and how God created one man and one woman for life. it deeply touched my heart Any way back to the topic at hand, I may have just found a new Church home . My question is have any of you felt over whelmed when / if you've been away from church for a while then coming back but finally felt spirit fed and comfortable?

Psalms 139: 14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
