The Wave

By the time I get to worship this morning, half the world will have already lifted their hearts to God...

I realized this as I woke at 5 a.m thinking of a friend who, in Eastern standard time, was already leading his church in worship. In another hour my home church, in Central standard time, would be coming before the throne with praise.  I, being in Hawaiian-Aleutian time, would not be joining the celebration for another five hours but when the time came I'd be there with lifted heart and hands.

It's not unlike "the wave" popular at any large event.  Someone begins by standing up and raising their hands over their head and then they bring down their hands and sit back down and the one next to them repeats the motion until it's moved throughout the entire crowd. It's silly but it's a lot of fun and, to see that many people participating to make something bigger than themselves, it's pretty great.

 "From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the LORD is to be praised!" Psalms 113:3

On ths Sunday may we, both over multiple time zones, and throughout the entirety of the day, be part of  a global wave to God because He is worthy

and we are so grateful...

I had never thought about that while I was on vacation. What a beautiful thing to think of, Becky!
