What Is That I Hear?
WOW! God is good! I am back at the hotel now – finished with the service for the women at the Bridgeport Pre-parole Transfer Facility. And did we have church! I wish you could have been there!
59 women wrote their names on the sign in sheets. I think there may have been 4 or 5 more that came I late that didn’t sign the sheet. Considering, I was competing with an opportunity for outdoor recreation tonight (and it was a wonderful night to be outside), and the facility only houses about 200, over a fourth of the population were in church tonight. We had wonderful praise and worship. They entered in and the glory of the Lord filled the place. The ministry flowed smoothly and I believe they were blessed and encouraged. I certainly was – but then I always receive a blessing. The air conditioning wasn’t working and it was extremely warm. I can tell I’m still a little weak but the Lord gave me the strength to last the whole two hours. (I actually went about 15 minutes over, thank you, Jesus for favor). But, especially, thank you Lord for what You did tonight. He poured out His love in a marvelous way. We laughed, we cried, we shouted, we rejoiced, and we laughed some more! Never for a minute doubt that God has a sense of humor! I had hit a rather strong point and was waiting a moment in silence for the Word to soak in when all of a sudden there was a terrific roar. I felt my eyes get big and said, “WHAT is that?” The train was coming through. Of all the times I’ve been there, I’ve never heard the train before. But, tonight it was just at the right time for God to make His point! And, everyone laughed and enjoyed His perfect timing. So, I have just finished a turkey sandwich (Dagwood style) and it’s time to unwind and try to get some sleep. But, before I go, I want to encourage you that you can do whatever God calls you to do. It doesn’t matter when you start—He hasn’t changed His mind—whatever He has placed in your heart, He will help you. His Word says the Holy Spirit will be our teacher and our guide. What more do we need? Let Him work through you. Be His hands, His mouth, and His feet, whatever He wants you to be to meet the needs around you. As you focus on helping and encouraging others, He will focus on helping and encouraging you. But, most of all, remember “Jesus Loves You!”
