More than the stars...

Last Saturday I heard a discouraging sermon on the woman's role in the church, actually saying "it's not the woman's job to witness", which kinda makes you feel like there's nothing to do. With that comes a thought that we may be worthless for God if we are female. I spent most of the evening asking Him these very things.

Well, I am happy to say that He has proved faithful once again!! "His compassions never fail, they are new every morning and GREAT is Your faithfulness!" That night when I went upstairs I could see the stars out of my window. When I turned on the light and they disappeared from view, I felt there was something about them I had to go and see. So, crazy as it may seem, I went outside to find beautiful little stars everywhere! I just stood there in awe of God's creation, wondering what it was He wanted to tell me.

Well, as I was watching the stars, I was reminded of the words from this song! "I love you more than the sun and the stars that I taught how to shine, you are mine and you shine for me too!"

I really do think God is amazing! One more thing for this week: I spoke to someone else yesterday about these things, and he advised me that the best place to witness is our place of work or study. Well, I've actually had opportunities for that already!!

Praise the Lord!!!

God's Timing Is Perfect.

True or false?

At this point I am seeing some of it to certainly be true. God gave us two babies in our growing family this year. Those had been prayed for for a long time. I wondered why I didn't start this college course last year - well there's proof, He knew we'd have babies in the family at this time!!

As wonderful as it is to know how good He is right now, there are still some things I feel I'm waiting for. I do feel I'm lacking in Christian friends since it's a season for leaving here, and am struggling to bring Christ to those friends who don't know Him. I know these things will be revealed in time, but waiting is hard.

"For greater things are yet to come, greater things are still to be done here!"

Had to add here about the little thing the other night that I think was God. What came into my head over and over was "What a jubilee of joy in the heavens then is herd, when a soul among the saved is counted in!" Eventually I wondered if maybe God was telling me that He was celebrating for someone right at that moment. I'm still not a hundred per cent sure on that one, but am feeling very excited for whoever it was if so!!!
