Journal entry for Monday July 27, 2020
It was a great day! I did some visitation in the morning and worked at the church in the afternoon. For some reason a verse Exodus 33 crossed my mind,
"15 And he said, if Thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence."
While I have never formally preached a sermon from this narrative found in Exodus 33, about twenty years ago I did share verse 15 as part of an opening devotional for an association meeting for churches in North Georgia. It is a great verse to claim.
For my current charge as Pastor at Central Baptist Church in Lowesville,Virginia I invoke this verse once again as a prayer to God to secure His continued presence.
Thank You Father for Your presence,
