When He Shows Up!!

How absolutely humbled I am by the love of my Abba Father!! To love me the way He does is completely overwhelming.

All the ladies came today, and even an extra that I wasn't expecting and I absolutely could not have been happier about that!! So we had seven ladies. We started with lunch ~~ and what a lunch it was; Chicken Enchiladas, Con Queso dip, and Butterfinger cake. Get out of town are you kidding me? Nope seriously ~~ delious!! Thanks for the recipes Melissa (Moore-Fitzpatrick) ~~

It was apparent that God was here from the time the first person walk in the door (Thank you for coming early and praying with me Carrie :) until the last person walked out (Thank you for the beautiful vases/pitchers :) Georgia). He was in our conversation over lunch and in our first Bible study together. I have prayed over this and have been so compelled about getting these ladies together; it is definitely God. He told me exactly which ladies to invite and I can so see His hand in it all!!

I just want to encourage you today, if you are floundering right now, if you just feel like you are not excited about the things of God, if you feel lost in a sea of stuff to do, places to go, and people to see; STOP~~ let God touch you in those places right now. Pick up His Word, read it, live it, breathe it!! He desires to be your all-in-all!! Settle into Him; He will guide and lead you, and the peace you will have in Him will help you get it "all" done.

There is so much I want to write and tell you about, but for now I'll leave you with these verses.
They are not the memory verses we will be learning, but they are the verses God laid on my heart to pray over our dear group yesterday.

Ephesians 3:14-19, 20-21
"For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom His whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpoasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. 20 Now to Him who is able to do unmeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, 21 to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen."

I listed 20-21 seperately because I prayed through verse 19 yesterday, but I so love 20-21, so wanted to make sure you read those as well :) God loves you so much. Don't ever doubt that!! He made the ultimate sacrifice for you and me ~~ What an AWESOME God we serve!!

Blessings and peace to you,
