God at Work

God has been at work in our lives, and I've not really written about it on my blog.  I feel like most of the time I don't have the right words to express what I mean or am feeling.  He is such a big part of our lives now, and for that I am forever grateful.  We attend Harvest Indy West in Avon, Indiana, and have grown so much since going there.  We are in a small group on Sunday nights.  We are challenged weekly by each other in going through our studies and God's Word.  I really love them all dearly and am so thankful for their friendships!  I also joined the choir this fall.  I'm not a great singer, but I do love to sing worship songs to our Lord and Savior!  I am so lucky to be blessed each Saturday when we practice.  I truly love that time worshiping, even if it is practicing.  We also teach Sunday school a couple weeks every once in a while (we are on a rotation).  This has by far been the biggest challenge for us.  We are not natural "teachers."  We are better suited for playing games/having fun/singing/goofing off.  So when it's time to be serious and we need to be strict, we sound ridiculous.  We love how God has stretched us to do this, even though it's not something we are naturally good at.  And we definitely grow each time we do it.  T.J. is also on a rotation doing set up before church.  We go to church in a  movie theater because there is not yet a building (but, Lord willing, there will be one next fall!)  So each Sunday they have to set up a stage/sound equipment/classrooms before church.  

T.J. and I are reading through Luke right now at home.  We are going to be going through it soon at church, so we are reading through it before that.  

We just finished reading this book for our small group.  It was so enlightening and just awakening.  I got so much out of reading it and would definitely recommend it!!  The last chapter on prayer was a game-changer for me!  So good!!
So that's just a glimpse of where we're at.  For those who have known us for a long time and are seeing a change, you're right.  It is a BIG change!  And we thank God for that!  It's by his grace and mercy that we've come to know him.  On that note, I will end this with 2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.  The old has passed away; behold, the new has come."

Pin It!
