I was reading my daily devotional from “Encouragement for Today” and was struck by this thought:

Be real in your time with God. Pour out your heart and talk to Him as you would a trusted friend. You can be reverent without being formal.

So when you spend your time with God today…Don’t use all those frilly words…jsut say what you mean and mean what you say.

“I urge, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”

1 Timothy 2:1-2

God has recently been speaking to my heart about missions. I have always felt a strong draw to missions, but recently God has been pushing me to take a more active role in my community. The first step God pressed on my heart was to start our Adult Missions Group back up in church. We had a interested parties meeting yesterday right after church…I had about 8 people interested! I thought that was GREAT! I have asked that they go home and spend the next week or so praying about their role in the group and what God is telling them this group should be focusing on. My top priority is glorifying God in all we do and I want us to work together as a single unit.

I’ll be honest, I’m scared to death. When I asked the last leader of the group for any suggestions all she said was “Its hard.” So thats a little nerve shaking. I want to make my God smile…I want to make His name glorified! I want to expand His kingdom beyond all human imagination! Glory to the God on Highest! There are a lot of wonderful Christ-filled people interesting in being a part of the group.

Please be in prayer with me as I pray for direction. I know God has called me to this and I only have to trust Him and He will lead us. Any positive ideas for how our group can impact our community would be great! I was thinking about visiting the elderly in the nursing homes and volunteering at homeless shelters…My God is driving and pulling me to impact our community positively! Our time is short! We should feel a pull for not only our personal lost but those we don’t know…because God tells us we are ALL His children. Join with me in impacting our community! everyday.

Father God,

Thank you for the opportunity to serve Your people and Your name! Father, truly You are the Most High God! I praise Your might and grace! Lord, please be with me in the time to come as I strive to bring new glory to Your name! Direct me O’ God in the paths you want this group to take! Show me the path to follow…Be clear with me God! I am an ignorant and sinful creature. Forgive my shortcomings and us me for Your Will! Thank You again Father for this wonderful opportunity!

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen

We are leaving tomorrow morning to take our four year old camping for the first time in NC. So please be in prayer for a safe trip and a great visit. I will be back on Monday posting more. Have a blessed weekend and BE SAFE!
