I truly love my Sundays.
My day of rest, a truly refreshing day, when I need not attempt to fit God into my day, as all my activities for the day, are based around worship and devotional time with Him - He is my day. It's a day, when I can truly pour myself out to Him in worship, revealing all contents of my Alabaster box. Waiting expectantly, for a word from the teaching or sermon, a rhema word, that will raise me up to another level in Him. How exciting!
My Sunday's are always a diverse day, which truly enriches my walk with the Lord.
The church, I attend - Christ Temple Community Church, is a Pentecostal church. We share a church building, where we have the 3pm, 'slot'. As a child, I always attended church or Sunday School, on a Sunday morning, and I still endeavour to continue, to do so. I take every opportunity, to fellowship, with other congregations, in the morning, until my own church is blessed with their own building.
It's wonderful to experience different styles of worship and to fellowship with friends, networking and fostering new relationships. As I grew up, it was frowned upon to attend churches, outside of your own denomination, but that is no longer the case, times have certainly changed. Praise God!
I never fail to be blessed, revisiting my spiritual mothers, who fellowship at the old Holiness church, where I worshipped for most of my life, in the latter years, running a large Sunday School department, under their watchful eyes.

I am always in awe of the fact, that at every second of every day, there is continual worship on earth and in Heaven, to God our heavenly Father, and that I am a part of that worship - excuse me, give me some room, while I just do a foot stomping, arm waving, Holy Spirit dance!!
How do you ensure that Sunday is truly your day of rest?
