"Where the rubber meets the road is the most important point for something, the moment of truth. An athlete can train all day, but the race is where the rubber meets the road and they'll know how good they really are."
Another thought: I have heard many a sermon about why we sometimes don't hear from God. It's our sin. We're not listening..etc. Do you ever wonder if God seems silent sometimes so that we can understand the sacrifice of loneliness and desolation Christ faced on the cross for us? Doesn't that silence render you desperately thirsty for God? Just a thought. Maybe in your next period of silence you can praise Christ for enduring the seperation for our salvation.
September 14-16 River of Life Church (Austin) Women's retreat. That I would get a clear, full word from God for them. Receptive and humble hearts for them (and me). Anointing as I speak, Angela intercedes, and Janet and Marla lead worship.
October 13th - 22ONE7 is showing Beth Moore's Loving Well at the Plum Creek Community Center. We are providing Brunch. Pray for money for advertising and food. Also, pray that women come and receive. I am hoping that we can do this twice a year.
God has told us to do something radical. We are supposed to build a retreat center for Ministers and Lay leaders. Pray for us to hear or see exactly where God desires this to be. Also pray for the funds for the project and beyond. I am already praying that the Spirit would bring healing to the site.
Lastly, for my husband, to do a live cd. God put it in his heart to record a live cd. We have a friend in London that will distribute it to hundreds of missionaries. Our hope is to record a cd to bless and encourage them as well as reminding the Saints at home to pray for our missionaries. With production and shipping it will cost about $8,000.
Some praises: God has given us ample opportunity to lead worship. Fellowship at Plum Creek on Sunday and Wednesday, Metro at Bannockburn on Tuesday night (seeing amazing number of Salvations!), and we have just been offered a position leading on Sunday nights at Onion Creek Baptist Church. I am speaking again and finishing a second small book (about speaking blessing). God is providing ample opportunity for us to provide retreats for leaders and lay leaders. God is so faithful to us and we praise Him. I am amazed at how He unceasingly brings wonderful things to fruition right before our eyes. We are humbled, thankful, and grateful!
