May You See Him, Not Me!
Wow, what a day! A day I cannot go without posting about! My God is amazing! What God taught me this morning was the icing to the cake of all He has done today!
As I posted earlier this month, Katherine and Jay Wolf are amazing! I seriously get my socks blown off every single time they speak! So much wisdom and so much JOY in the hope we have that anchors us! It’s amazing to have watched all these years the joy they have had in the hard times and in the good times. I had already planned to be there this morning when I found out my friends Ryan and Philann, our GT missionary family, were speaking in Sunday School. I jumped for joy when I saw how much the Lord’s hand was in placing me right where I needed to be. Especially when I raced to Vaughn Forest after Sunday school to walk in right as Dr. Kevin was saying 2 Corinthians 1:4, the last verse I posted last night and the verse the Lord has made more real to me over the last three months than anything ever. The last 10 minutes I got of Dr. Kevin’s sermon was complete confirmation of all He had taught me through Katherine and Jay and Ryan and Philann this morning. I honestly stood there amazed.
God has surrounded me with so many amazing people who encourage me and support me! I love today that when I was asked if I had someone who mentored me growing up, I could say “So many and so many still are.” Today I had someone tell me they could not believe they were sitting next to me because they had stalked me all over the internet. Later, I had someone tell me they were hearing so much about me they googled me. WHAT? I remember googling myself and all my friends growing up to find nothing. I never thought I’d ever be told that someone googled me. (Then I googled myself.) Who do I owe all the money to? Seriously, I am blown away. I only tell you these things not because I think I am anything famous but because my God is famous!! Only God can move, only God can use complete brokenness and utter darkness to bring light to this fallen world! What satan meant for harm, God WILL use for good!! He WILL and wants to use you!! The question is Are you willing?? He is waiting!
“John answered, “It’s not possible for a person to succeed—I’m talking about eternal success—without Heaven’s help…. That’s why my cup is running over. This is the assigned moment for Him to move into the center, while I slip off to the sidelines.” John 3:27, 30
