It’s been a while since I last wrote. Our summer was full to overflowing and time got away from me. We traveled through 14 states, ate way more than we should have, enjoyed rich relationships (much more than we deserve) and saw God at work everywhere we went. I have so much to share with you! I thought about writing a “what I did this summer” blog, but it was too long and too overwhelming. You’ll probably hear bits and pieces over the next few months but I won’t bore you with it all at once!
I want to leave you with one thought for today; God is at work in a big way! Everywhere we went we heard stories of how God is working. It’s easy to be discouraged when so many negative stories fill the newspapers and airways. Sometimes I need to step back and look for what God is doing in the midst of the challenges. State after state, city after city we heard stories of God’s faithfulness, mercy, love, power, presence and Spirit-given joy and peace. God’s people are waking up to the reality that God really is bigger than any problem they face. His Spirit is breaking the chains of doubt and fear. Such an awakening cannot help but spark a fire!!
Bless you dear friends! Whether you feel it or not, God is at work in your life and in the lives of those you love! Read Psalm 145 (preferably the New Living Translation) and be encouraged!!
The eyes of all look to You in hope; You give them their food as they need it. When You open Your hand, You satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.
