Service of Worship
May 8, 2016
“Delight yourself in the Lord,
and He will give you the desires of your heart.”
There are many ways to describe worship –
and Psalm 37:4 is a good place to start. When we worship, we “delight ourselves in the Lord.” That means that we enjoy being in His presence, telling the story of His grace, reminding one another of what He has done.
Let’s choose today to delight in God. If we truly do that, we won’t be surprised to discover that He is changing our hearts.
Welcome to Huron Shores Fellowship!
We are glad that you are here.
