I'll let you in on a secret - some pastors listen to other pastors preach. One of my favorite ways to listen is through Podcasts and there are some services I listen to every week. One of those is Providence Church, where Jacob Armstrong is the primary teaching pastor.
This past week Jacob's message hit my heart in just the right place. He talked about how when the Israelites were preparing to flee Egypt, Miriam (Moses's sister) in the midst of gathering folks together for the journey took time to pack her tambourine. Why? Pastor Armstrong said because she was trusting that there would be a time to praise God that was coming (https://prov.church/messages/).
One of the beautiful things I get to do as a spiritual director is bear witness. To be the one celebrating with people when God moves in their lives in ways great and small. I may not play a physical tambourine but I have one going in my heart!
Who are the people who praise God with you and trust that a reason to celebrate is coming?
