One of my favorite memories of my mom was the way that she always “celebrated” events in our family. If something good happened at work, we would go out to dinner to “celebrate”. If one of our sons played a good game in sports, we would go out to dinner to “celebrate”. After all school programs and recitals, we would go out to eat to “celebrate”. Do you see a pattern? It seemed that we would always to eat to celebrate events in our family and in our lives. Where do you go to celebrate what the Lord is doing in your life?
In John 5:12-14 John writes, “12 Then they asked him, “Who is the Man who said to you, ‘Take up your bed and walk’?” 13 But the one who was healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had withdrawn, a multitude being in that place. 14 Afterward Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, “See, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you.” The man, being healed after 38 years of being lame, when to the temple to worship and give thanks.
Where do you go to celebrate what the Lord is doing in your life? Do we immediately go to spend time with Him to worship Him and give thanks? Or, do we get so caught up in what is happening that we completely forget about Him all together? When the Lord answers your prayers, where will He find you?
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
