Church or Museum

A house of prayer?
Or a museum?

The answer to both questions is YES. Because many years ago this church was filled with people. And they prayed and the Word says there prayers shall not return void. Answered prayer it is a promise. Many years ago the churches were built with such a distinct way that just beckoned you to come in. There were churches in all the small American towns. They doubled many times for the school house the town hall. My that would cause a lawsuit today.
Like this beautiful old church may it stand for a very long time, as a reminder of to each of us to pray and to never give up. God has blessed this nation and He created this world.
May our prayer life and our family's not look like part of a museum. But be alive and overflowing with hope.
The Lord has said to occupy until I return, keep on keeping on!
Blessings, Roxy

Oh I love this post Rox,
I love the picture of the Church so much. You are right, they did used to build churches that beckon you to come in. I feel a sad longing of the sweet times of old, when goodness and godliness were not so far away. When most of America loved the Lord... even those that didn't go to church mostly had a sweet love for the Lord and a strong moral sense of right and wrong... I know things have never been perfect since Adam and Eve, and the battle on planet earth has been raging ever since, but there have been better times in our country.... yet, as Winston Churchill once said about the bombing of England... "this is our finest hour". Let it be said of us in this generation that "this is our finest hour", and though the war wages, our Lord has lifted us up. I love your question... "house of prayer or museum?" It is an apt description of the two views people seem to have these days. I also love your admonition to us to occupy, and even next post, as you said, let us not forget the promises and word are true. In this 12th hour,we must hold fast to our faith in the Word of our Heavenly Father. It is indeed true. We need not fear when we have all those wonderful promises.
