Just in case

Just in case you thought you aren't that big a player in God's kingdom let me shatter your doubts. God is always at work. "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose" Romans 8:28.

So if He's always at work and all things work together for His good then you are a BIG player.

Our family has seen this firsthand over the last couple of weeks. When God brought us through a tough church home transition we thought it was to benefit our family; to bring us closer to Him and to teach us Biblical truth we had never been taught before.

However, God was simply using us (in addition to catapulting our family into a blessed realm of theological understanding) to minister to others. Not a verbal ministry but by our actions. We were oblivious to how God was using our life to effect other families.

When I received a phone call a couple of weeks ago from a friend from the previous church I was apprehensive. I actually was going to let it go to voice mail. Oh the blessings I would have missed out on!

Then today I get a Facebook message from a friend from that church. God has been doing the SAME things in their life! I am so glad she took the step to ask me about the new church we are attending. Because she did, a path has been forged that brings us together in a special way.

To doubt God's providence is to doubt His sovereignty! I can't wait to see what happens next!
