A Month of Thanks - Seeing God's Hand

It has been another busy day around these parts but then, Sunday's are always busy for us. Wait....I can't really think of a day that isn't busy. But, guess that is how things go these days.

I am so amazed at how God works. I have just finished (as you know) Beth Moore's Esther Study. That study was all about learning that God is working even when we can't see Him. That's providence. I loved learning that! Hubs and I always say that God sent us to this church, for this time, for HIS purpose. We are here for a reason. I am thankful for what I learned from Beth Moore about knowing and believing in providence. That God is working especially when we can't see him.

I've prayed and prayed that God would lead Ken and me for HIS purpose alone. That we would listen, and hear his guidance and do the things he calls us to do. This afternoon, I was a part of a meeting with a group of people who all love the Lord and desire to do God's will in our church. As a part of that meeting, I got to hear how God is using Ken and I in His will for this place.

While I loved learning that God is in the details and HE is always at work, I can't tell you how energizing and amazing it was to hear that God is using us here. What an amazing blessing to know that God can use these two very broken people to do something for HIM. It's is incredible. I know this scared, skittish, disliker of crowds, isn't doing anything on her own. Only through God. And that is unbelievable. And so, so, SOOO humbling.

Today, I feel incredibly thankful and blessed. I'm filled up with gratitude that God can use even me. Actually, I'm so excited about this that I'm not even sure this post makes a lick of sense.

oh well.

I'm thankful to the Father who is moving in this church and using hubs and I as a little bitty part of that. And I'm thankful and excited to see what HE has for us in the coming months and years in this place.

in HIM-
