Perfect? Perfect!

There is something I feel I need to let you know about, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It's regarding where I worshiped.

Unfortunately, Walkerville Evangelical Baptist Church was on fire.

Yes, it burned down.

Here is a link by windsorstar.com that is entitled, Million=dollar blaze destroys historic Walkerville churchhttps://windsorstar.com/news/local-news/fire-destroys-historic-walkerville-church.

Here is what was stated (I copied/pasted):

About 40 members of the Walkerville Evangelical Baptist Church were enjoying a potluck lunch in the basement following Sunday service when someone yelled: “Fire!”
Everyone inside the church at 815 Windermere Rd. got out safely, said Rev. Tom Perry, as he stood nearby and watched flames and smoke pour from a historic structure that has stood for more than 100 years.
“That was the main thing, the only thing I was worried about,” Perry said. “We only had time to get out and to move our cars from the parking lot.”
By Monday, Windsor Fire officials pegged the damage at $1 million and on Twitter said “extensive structural damage has prevented conducting a site investigation, appears to be accidental.”
Once everyone was outside on Sunday, someone did a roll call and then the parishioners gathered to pray for the emergency responders.
“We prayed for the firemen outside because we knew how serious it was,” said Perry, who has been the church’s pastor for seven years.
Perry had no idea what caused the fire only that it was on an upper level of the three-storey church. He said the third floor houses an attic, a furnace room and a gathering place for church youth on Friday nights.

Sigh...

I admit that I am happy that none of the church family was physically hurt/damaged and their life on earth... didn't end.

Hallelujah!

It truly broke my heart reading about the church building burning down.

Why?

I not only worshipped there.  I also took a grandchild there, for quite a while.

But now, no one can worship there... for there is no building to be in.

Of course, we all need to continue to worship.

Thinking about that, made me think of Luke 4:7, "If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.".

Amen!  If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.

God is SO important to worship.  Just as we read in today's Bible verse.

We who belong to Him, have gained salvation and everlasting life, by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.

By doing this we truly all belong to Him.

Even though life isn't perfect... God is!

So I will always continue to worship.

If you do also, He will bless you.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
