The session this morning started with the delegation singing a well-known hymn: “How Great Thou Art” followed by a special musical item. From time to time brethren present a special item at the beginning or at the end of the day. These items range from solos to small choirs. These presentations are just one way to praise our great God for the many blessings He has bestowed upon us.

Just over two-hundred delegates and some staff joined their voices together this morning to sing the beautiful hymn “I Stand Amazed in the Presence” to open our morning worship. 

 

This hymn’s culminating line is the following: "How marvelous! How wonderful! Is my Saviour’s love for me." We can truly experience that during this delegation session. God's love and mercy is renewed every morning, and we have the hope and His promise that it will continue to be renewed each day of our life.

Like floating carpets, they suddenly appeared, “in abundance,” swaying in the transparent waters of a sea that reflected the colors of dusk. The sailors recognized them as soon as they saw them before they disappeared on the horizon: they were the famous botelhos—the great clumps of seaweed that danced together in the rippling waves produced by the advance of the proud fleet. For seasoned sailors of that time, it was a clear sign that land was near.

A glorious sunny day began by the grace of God. The fresh air, the sun shining through the trees in the forest nearby, the singing of the birds, all testified that our God is great. We thank Him this morning for giving us yet another day filled with blessings and grace.
