Weird. I contacted the Door of Hope church because I wanted to see if I might be able to catch a ride with someone and I was informed that they are a "community" church and not a "commuter" church. Ouch. I'm on the road alot and although I am currently at my parents, I could just as easily be staying in Portland if it was the Father's will. But I think that this is the Lord's way of showing me that this is NOT the church for me, even though I felt I had some confirmations earlier.
The more I think about it, the more that I am amazed at what church has become. It's just not about the body of Christ anymore but about our own little corner of the world: We just want the people that live in our neighborhood to come to our church - sorry if you were looking for the Word of God here. Maybe I wanted to check out the church and then move there? But too bad, so sad.
Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for always being with me and loving me. Thank you for a door of hope being opened somewhere else! Thank you for your Grace and Mercy and Love in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
