That's pretty much all that I can say.
God has completely blown me away with His provisions and His plans for our little SHINE group.
I woke up very early this Sunday morning, with all of you on my heart. Most of you, I don't even know, but I can assure you that you are being lifted up to the Father in prayer, daily.
God led me once again to this verse, in this wee morning hour:
"The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field." Matthew 9:37-38
He also led me to this verse:
"Take my yoke upon you and learn for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. " Matthew 11:29-30.
This brings tears to my tired eyes this morning. Why?
I have read every one of your emails and prayer requests. I have heard your cries. My heart aches for what a lot of you are going through. I mean, it really, truly aches.
Jesus wants you to know, He hears you, sisters.
Read the above verse again. Read it until peace rests on your hearts.
Girls! Oh, how He LOVES you!
Take it all in, soak it up. Feel His big strong arms wrapped around you. He's holding you, my friend.
What a glorious sight.
