Amazing!

AMAZING

That's what God is.

He is AMAZING.

What did I tell you yesterday? That I had nine openings for readers for the Bible reading marathon? Yeah. By the time I went to bed Tuesday night I had less than nine. Was going to update the blog, but I didn't have time.
And Wednesday morning I was still confirming readers. Seriously. I was on the phone calling people back while I was walking to the Capitol building.
Even when I sat down with the first readers at 11:00, I still had four, maybe six, openings. But I only read ONCE. People came and stayed longer to read. Some people just came - that I didn't even know would be there. God provided and it was a delight to see.
Not only that, but most of the reading segments didn't take the full 15 minutes, so we spent our "extra" time singing praise songs and praying.
And now I can't wait to go to the National Day of Prayer prayer time at the Capitol. Our God is so good and I am excited to watch Him move. (Here, and in Kaz, Greta! *grin*)

May His peace rest upon you today, and may His JOY fill your soul.

How exciting to be part of something that has such impact in the heavenlies. I spoke at our local national Day of Prayer event a couple of years ago and it was humbling. I had to work yesterday and didn't get to be part of any formal event. Can't wait to hear how it went for you.
