God is at work, He is leading and providing! This past week has been pretty exciting and encouraging. First, Michael's brother Malcham is here visiting and was able to be here for Michael's birthday! We have already been dragging him around with us and just generally having a great time. He's had us laughing like crazy on a pretty regular basis.
Saturday, one of our fellow youth staff members (and a friend of our family from birth) was ordained, and today he and his wife are moving to Tennessee to take a position as an assistant pastor in a church there. It is very exciting to see how God has been leading them and has shown them the place He has for them! Pastor Dan encouraged us all on Sunday night to pray for those who go out from our church to minister. It's very easy to forget them when we aren't seeing them each week. So I'm going to really begin making a list and sticking to it when it comes to my prayer time. That is something I've really gotten out of the habit of doing!
Sunday morning, our pastor preached from 2 Peter 3 about living with a sense of urgency. I was thankful to be prompted by the Holy Spirit to continue on in what God has called me to, and to pray about some future ideas for ministry. I am so thankful that God convicts and prompts.
Sunday afternoon, a friend of ours fixed the brakes on our van, at no charge. We bought the parts, he took the van home from church and brought it back with new back brake pads and new brake cylinders. What a blessing to be a part of the body of Christ, where we can exchange services in our areas of talent and abilities!!!
So, how has God been working, convicting, providing for you this week? Please leave a link to your post in the comment section below!
