I Miss The Old Ways (Church)

I dream of a time when doing the right thing was easy. And not only was it easy, but it was expected and appreciated. A time when the world looked and sounded different. A time when we were free and we had fun, but we were guided by God and our lives were lead by His Word. A time when going to church was easy and 'popular' (Not to say that I like to 'follow the crowd' because I don't). A time when the church services were so full of God! People laying on the floor in the Spirit, dancing in the aisles, speaking in tongues, running around the pews, having many church services that are so full of God that the preacher doesn't even preach (Although the preaching is important too), people backing up the preacher, people gathering at the altar at any point in the service, prayer rooms and sanctuaries that you walk into and you can feel God as soon as you get your foot in the door,... I miss the old ways.

It seems that in order to have 'good church' you have to drain yourself of all energy in a fight. You have to worship when you don't feel God and when you're to tired to even want to lift your hand, pray and feel like it's hitting the ceiling,....
