To Feel His Pleasure

God has a funny way of talking. And repeating Himself. Again and again.

“Randomly” Chuck brought home the movie “Chariots of Fire.” It is the true emotional story of Eric Liddell who ran for Scotland in the Olympics. The classic line is: “I believe God made me for a purpose, but He also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure.”

When I watched him run in the movie, it made me cry. Because he did not have technique or perfection, or a trained stride. He had passion and dependence on the pleasure of his God. And it was enough. More than enough.

Then last night as we were praying for the worship CD that we are cutting this weekend, different women kept sensing the word pleasure and enjoyment.

It was no surprise then when Melanie came up after class and said, “You know when I am doing my art, I remember that great quote by this guy, Eric Liddell. He said he ran because he felt God’s pleasure. And I try to remember when I draw to do it for His pleasure.”

Yep, God likes to make sure we hear Him, loud and clear. So from Thursday night through Sunday, will you pray for us as a band, as worshippers, as children of God, to play and sing simply because we feel His pleasure?

That will be more than enough.
