Yes, Lord!

Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. Last week, I was enjoying A Woman Inspired Conference. I just have to say that if you are ever given the chance to participate in one of these webinars...they are fabulous. I believe God really moved in that conference and touched so many hearts, including mine. It was fabulous, just wonderful! Can you tell I enjoyed it? :) This week I've just been busy. I don't really know busy in what exactly, but I just couldn't find the time to blog. Please forgive me.

I do have news though! My husband and I have been praying and searching for a church, where we could serve God. Well, Sunday, we joined a small church in the next town over. I didn't know we were going to join, mind you. We had visited there several times and always enjoyed the service and fellowship. However, Sunday was different. My husband and I hadn't made up our minds where we would spend Easter Sunday until the family was in the car and we were headed out. I believe that God sent us there. The pastor preached a wonderful message and the Spirit was stirring my heart. During prayer before the invitation, my husband said to me, "I think we need to join this church." If you could have just seen the look on his face, you would know he was hearing from God. And, if you knew my husband, he doesn't make such monumental decisions in a snap. I knew God was speaking directly to his heart. I was astonished. "Today?," I asked. He nodded his head...and I said "Yes, Lord, use us here." And, again, I feel like I'm walking on sunshine. Our entire family has been changed somehow since Sunday. I can't really put my finger on it, but changed nonetheless. So, please pray that we will serve the Lord with our whole hearts in the new church where He has placed us. God truly does work in mysterious ways.

I just want to say how thankful I am for all my bloggy friends and my real life friends that visit Everyday, A New Beginning. You will never know the encouragement and support you bring to my heart. If I'm having a bad day or great day, for that matter, I know I can pour my heart out here and you will prop me up with your prayers. I pray God blesses each and every visitor to this site and that He plants a seed of love and hope in each heart. Yes, Lord, use me here!

**A little side note: Barbara at Beyond Still Waters has honored me with a Sisterhood Award. She has a precious heart for others and you know by her words that she loves Jesus. Y'all should stop by and say hello. You will leave there refreshed. And, Barbara, thank you so much, and I promise to pass the award along soon. :)

Oh Becky I am so happy for your family...your post brought absolute tears of joy. When you know, like you described, that you are right where God wants you...what joy. The difference you are feeling is probably the fresh anointing for what God has for your family there. I will be praying and praising God for you. Be blessed.
