Thank you to all who have been asking about my speaking trip this week! God was in the house!
There was one decision for Christ! I am so excited for this. She was a high school girl and sat right next to me at the table. Be sure to pray for her as the gals in Pocatello follow up to encourage her to be part of a Bible Study and find a church to learn about her new journey.
I am also excited about how the Lord confirmed the topic and the message. The outline for this message flowed out in about 30 minutes. I knew it was inspired. The women indeed related to being “out of money, out of time and out of strength.” And, as always, God took it to places I never imagined in the hearts of women. My conversations with women after each luncheon were moving and inspiring.
I love sharing my heart with women! But I knew by how tired I was afterwards that I had been doing spiritual battle. I slept almost all the way home to Boise, on and off throughout the evening and until about 8 a.m. this morning. This is exactly why I have a team of prayer warriors! This ministry cannot be done without the powerful prayers of God’s people behind it. My heart is so grateful; I am always amazed and humbled by it.
As you may have noticed, I have adopted this quote by Kay Arthur:
“You are accountable only for your gifts and ministry. Don’t look at the effects and evaluate yourself or your gifts on that basis. Gifts are from the Spirit, the ministry is from the Lord, and the effect is from God — your responsibility is simply to be faithful.”
I pray He always finds me faithful.
