As you read this, I am part of a mission team from The Community Fellowship working with Little River Baptist Chapel in Flatwoods, West Virginia. Today was an incredible day (I write this as Monday is about to be gone). We have gotten to interact with some great people as well as partner with another church, First Baptist Liberty, South Carolina, to help this church in rural America.
Some things that stood out in my mind about this day:
+ conversation with a guy at a store about what God is doing in his life
+ hearing about the culture around Flatwoods and about the needs of people who are seeking Jesus (many who need to seek Jesus)
+ story about an older lady who is running from God but today turned toward God and helped her grandkids learn more about Jesus
+ ability our team had to accomplish more than we thought possible
+ listening to our team talk about the Bible, share what God is going in our lives and how we desire others to be touched by God.
I have said it before. I will say it again. I am blessed! You are blessed too. Even though you may be going through a tough situation, God wants to work in your life. Let Him. Listen to God. There is more waiting for you if you will just hear God, follow Him and see that the people around you have a way to find God too.
My prayer is there will be less of me and more of God coming through my life. Does that make sense to you? Pray that prayer if you can.
Proverbs 16:3 (NASB) --- Commit your works to the LORD And your plans will be established.
Isaiah 55:6 (NASB) --- Seek the LORD while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near.
Matthew 5:16 (NASB) --- Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
Tomorrow is going to be another great opportunity for God to work. Believe that for yourself and watch God work. He will blow your socks off like he did mine today!
