Psalm 85:12 NLT
Yes, the Lord pours down his blessings. Our land will yield its bountiful harvest.
Psalm 119:58 NLT
With all my heart I want your blessings. Be merciful as you promised.
Through what I have shared the last couple of days you know that we are in the middle of hosting a mission team that is working on our new campus. It really is more than I expected when I see all that they have accomplished in only 2 days of working.
But along the way there are unexpected blessings that show up and help me and others see God. The blessings also help our vision to increase. Vision is the truth God has given to propel us forward to make a difference in the world. The Community Fellowship is intent on fulfilling the vision that God has given us. It gets better all the time.
Today’s unexpected blessings are numerous, but here are a few of them:
During dinner and the mission team’s worship time tonight one of our dear friend’s shower up unexpectedly. We met David Moore a few years ago as our mission team working on the church he was pastor of at the time. David is also the guy that connected us to the Men On A Mission team to work on our building this week. His presence was an unexpected blessing.
There were two meetings in this afternoon that meant much to me. I often get the opportunity to share the vision of our church as well as the growth of what God is doing, but one of the things I really get a jolt out of it asking partners to join us in the God given vision we have. That was an unexpected blessing, but it is now something I pray for as God moves hearts and decisions.
In the activities of the last few days I have been able to listen to several men tell the story how God connected them to this mission team and how God is working in their lives. Monday night a pastor shared how He was healed of cancer, and earlier that day he told me how God is working in the church he is pastor of to save people who live on the street in their community. Another man shared about the blessings that came to him after he had been generous to others. The stories keep on flowing, and they are unexpected blessings.
One of my favorite blessings is watching people from our church step up to serve. This past week and this week several have done more than I expected. Seems like every time I turn around there is another of our church family serving. We are blessed. Now I am looking for more unexpected blessings.
I could share more, but that is where I will stop. Be encouraged to look for blessings all around you. May God do things that you least expect and bring blessings to you and others around you.
Matthew 13:16 NLT
But blessed are your eyes, because they see; and your ears, because they hear.
