Ahwatukee! I just like the way it feels when I say it.
This photo was taken there yesterday at Corpus Christi Catholic Church. I had the honor of spending time with their St. Gerard Circle ministry group. This women's group is obviously willing to let the Holy Spirit flow. They are having an incredible impact on their church and community through faith, service and love. They totally rocked the hand motions on My Hearts on Fire and I even saw some pretty slick dance moves happening!
I shared with the group, as I do everywhere I go, how God is using me and my gifts. Also, how I am not necessarily qualified to serve, yet He knows I am willing. When I'm open to the Spirit I can trust that IT goes before me and prepares everything... even me. As I have said before... God does not necessarily call the equipped but He will equip the called.
Yesterday - two awesome guys, John and Greg, helped set up sound at Corpus Christi for tonight's concert. They are such cool guys, men of faith willing to help and serve. As we arranged the sound equipment I asked a few questions. As a result... both guys agreed to play with me in concert tonight. I can't wait to watch this unfold. I'm believing here and now... even before it happens... that their willingness to answer, "Yes" will be a blessing to others... as well as themselves. It is already a blessing to me.
Before I left home for this trip... I bought a few things to use as potential Thank You gifts along the way. Turns out John and Greg like beer. Now I know who the two big bottles of Oregon brewed IPA were for! I knew when I felt inspired to buy them God had already chosen their recipients.
I love to watch God work! The more I seek Him the more I find Him.
6 And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.
New Living Translation (NLT)
