Outside The Church

“But I say to you in this place, there is One greater than the temple.”  Matthew 12:6

It’s been about 9 years since I’ve been able to attend church.  I don’t understand all the why’s and how comes of it.  Nor do I understand all that God’s doing in this.  I love my church and church family.  I’ve felt guilt and shame . . .but I’ve also felt His peace and provision for me here, in the place I am.

Thank You, Lord, for Your presence in the lives of believers who are outside of the traditional church system by Your calling or the circumstances in their life.  Here’s a simple poem . . .

In This Place

The church bells are ringing
the flock is gathering in
but I can no longer go there
and find shelter with them.

It doesn’t mean that You’ve left me
or that I’m all alone
but that You’ve chose to build a temple
here in my heart and home.
