I am so glad that God in all His unending love, grace and mercy ushered me back into fellowship with His people. My children and I have been attending our new church for over a month and let me tell you, my children are loving it.
Of course, no church on this earth is perfect, but there is something so beautiful about assembling with other believers. Being in the world certainly takes its toll, so being able to celebrate and worship my King with my hands lifted high and my heart opened wide is like sweet manna from heaven.
There are so many different events and activities that take place at this church and next week I am volunteering at the annual girl conference. Yes! Despite my obscene workload God has planted a deep desire for me to be used within the body of Christ and He is making a way!! Hallelujah!
My children are loving the children’s church and it is this that pleases me most of all. I yearn for my children to truly encounter Jesus for themselves whilst they are still young. It is my hearts cry for them to be surrounded by other on fire for Jesus believers, so when on Sunday morning, instead of moaning about another early start, they say they are looking forward to church, or when they catch me unaware and tell me that they love church, or when they begin reciting scripture unprompted, or when they begin to sing songs of worship to their Heavenly Father, my own soul sings.
GOD IS SO FAITHFUL!!!
Despite our single family status, God holds our beautiful family together with His righteous right hand. God leads and guides me as He plants seeds of His love, peace and mercy into the lives of my children.
Unlike I did as a child, I want my children to know, that a close personal relationship with Jesus Christ is available to them right here and right now. I don’t want my children to make the choices I did, or suffer the heartache I have because they are ignorant of the ways of God. My prayer is for my children to know Jesus and His principles for their lives, I want them to know He is with them, He is for them and His way has always been and will always be perfect.
