One thing we are learning is that He is so desperate to get His gifts in us, but every day we clinch and control how and when we receive… or we are afraid that we aren’t going to get in on the blessing, so somehow we settle for less. But the more you wait on His gifts, the more you see what an incredible choreographer our God is. He has each sunrise, each friend, each meal, each child, timed to hand out His words and love… we live in a fallen world, obviously, and so we often get to experience fellowshiping with His sufferings in the places where He is not received. Help us to receive you more, God. We are desperate to be in you–it is from there that we “do”.
Looking for Lydia this year!
Finding the Lydias in your life this year… Recall that Lydia was the first woman in Europe to turn towards the message of St Paul.
