Sitting On the Edge of My Seat

Psalms 96:3(NKJV) “Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.”

As I watched the playoff games over the weekend I noticed how we as sports fans reacted to the ups and downs, highs and lows of the game.  The hysteria and elation as the appearance of winning and losing for the favored team ebbed and flowed. The passion and excitement was so strong and intense.  Those cheering for the same team shared and bonded around their team.

It’s amazing how football brings so many people together from different walks of life. As we all sit on the edge of our seats we share food and an array of emotional outburst. Our team has us unified, beaming and letting everyone know who we support and stand for!

That night before I laid down God truly spoke me. He asked me, “What if you sat on the edge of your seat for me?” I thought to myself what am I doing that God questioned if I would sit on the edge of my seat for Him.

I then asked myself, how about the hours you spend watching your favorite TV shows? Will you begin to spend that amount of time studying the word and being in prayer and meditation? How could I show my passion and dedication to God? Would I begin to share my testimonies and scream about the blessings I have received?

I decided that I must share the good news of my Lord and Savior. God told me that His children should hear and be reminded to come together because of Him. Jesus paid it all.


Dear God,

 Thank you for making me stop and think about how I am showing up for you. Lord thank you for the grace and mercy you give me each day. As I start this week help me as I share the goodness of my God. Let me sing your praises and remember that I am on the winning team, as I live out my purpose here on this earth.
