Sometimes God just blows you away

We were quite surprised to get a phone call from the friend who has been the go-between during that potential adoption, asking what time church started. And she came to church on Sunday morning! She said the mom wanted to come but wasn't feeling well enough yet.
I really can't express how mind-blowing it is that she came to church.

We've also had several unchurched families coming the last few weeks. This means that God has entrusted these families to us and we MUST work hard to disciple them! I feel honored that God would entrust these families to us.

Sometimes the greatest blessing is gratitude. Sometimes closeness, sometimes life's simple pleasures.

But on very rare occasion, I believe the greatest blessing that God can bestow is to make you hurt in ways you didn't know you could possibly hurt. As you watch the results of your pain work themselves out, the payoff comes when you truly internalize the fact that God works all things to the good of those who love Him, no matter how it looks.
