Stirred Up Soul, Scripture & Tunes

I was awoken this morning at 6:30 am with a Stirred up Soul. I feel like God is like the father coaxing his child to jump off the high dive and he is waiting for me to jump reassuring me he won't let me drown, while the person next to me keeps telling me all the fearful things that can happen & why would I leave them up there by themselves, they are afraid of me jumping. I keep running to the edge and then I get pulled back. My heart just wants to Jump. I was able this morning to spend a couple of hours this morning before the house woke up so I spent it listening to tunes, reading scripture & posting to Facebook. I started out the trials looking to get peace by venting on Facebook & by the end of those trials I found my place of peace was with my nose in my Bible, my head lowered in prayer, spending time at Church every moment I could. I found that when one part of the body of Christ is suffering much like our body the rest will step in to support that part and we all at some point will face trials of many kinds. Some people these day's say I don't need to go to Church to be a Christian and Yes your right & I was one of those people, but we need to come to Church for fellowship so that the body can work together the way God intended it to.

The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.
 Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
 The eye cannot say to the hand, "I don't need you!" And the head cannot say to the feet, "I don't need you!" On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has combined the members of the body and has given greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.
 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. 1 Corinthians 12:12-27
