Have you ever had one of those shock and awe weeks? That was the last week for me. Family's health not doing great, friends going through traumatic experiences, a robbery and shooting a few blocks from our house and then my step dad who I prayed for to come to Christ for 13 years was baptized on Sunday. And the thing about my step dad is that he came to Christ 10 years before I even knew it! 10 extra years I was praying for something that had already happened. But isn't that so like the Lord? He is often at work and we just can't see it as in all of these situations. God is not caught off guard. He is not surprised or stumped or powerless. Each is a step that He is well aware of and has a plan for. He has a plan, a good plan. Let that sink in today... His plan is a good one and He is already at work in places you have no idea about.
Here's how it works.
1. Link up as many blog posts as you want below by clicking the link below and following the prompts. (Perhaps think of old posts you want more exposure to as well as new ones.)
2. Let your readers know by including a link at the bottom of your post (or somewhere on your side bar) or paste my button code (found below and on the side bar).
3. Take a minute to visit and comment on another sweet lady or two's post. You're encouragement might be just what she needs to keep pressing on in being a voice in the darkness.
