You have brought us out to rich fulfillment.
Today was... rich!
Happy Birthday Josie. I praise God for my friend Josie. You all should have one of her. I highly recommend it. Just ask God for one, you'll know you have a Josie when you are blessed by someone's presence. That is a Josie, lol :)
I started my day off by speaking to the middle and high school students at the school my sister teaches at. It was awesome to share with them where God saved me from and the work that He has done in me, and continues to do. It amazes me that God would even dare to use me as a mouth piece for His Gospel. Truly a work of the Holy Spirit: Zechariah 4:6 not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord!
Later, last minute cancellations had me sitting at table with one of my good friends sitting across from me. Definitely, a God moment. We are normally super busy and find it hard to just hang out. Needless to say, it was a sweet "getaway" from life. It was a delightful gift from Jesus to spend time with her.
Soon after my sister called me to have coffee with her. She shared with me how the morning chapel service ministered to the kids. Praise be to God. He used a stubborn mule like me to reach His children... call me Baleem's donkey! High five to Jesus for the seeds planted. Oh, she treated me to coffee, a pleasent surprise.
To top it ( I love that God spoils me, hehe ), the midweek service at church was just what the doctor prescribed. God loves me so much. It was beautiful. God saw the need of my heart and met me there. And as if that wasn't enough, he sent me a tangiable gift through the most unexpected person. It sure felt like an unforseen kiss from Heaven.
This entire day can be summerized in two verses:
the one above: rich fulfillment, life abundant
two: Delight yourself in the Lord and He will grant you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
