Before the day is officially over here on the East Coast, wanted to share that five years ago today, GCC’s started through this FB group site on 1/8/15. This is our fifth anniversary (5 is for the grace of God) and little did I know at the time that the number 8 means new beginnings. Very fitting because God is indeed doing something new!
Every day our group witnesses miracles, it’s quite spectacular. (We hope to start documenting these soon to encourage all of you too!) I have still been in my “valley,” but hearing how God is breathing on people’s lives and within situations has fueled me! I’ve been sick for over 60 some days and other challenges every day, but the grace of God and witnessing the miraculous has kept me pumped and alive! (That sounds so 80’s!! I am however in my mid 40s! LOL)
Bless you! Continue to thank God for his goodness even if it’s only for running water and occasional blue skies. There are others who don’t even have that! It IS POSSIBLE to be fruitful in EVERY SEASON! I’m learning that even now!! If you mess up (like I did today – I was complaining about my house again), just lay it before God and apologize to Him then try again!
Father, thank you for this precious group of women. Thank you for wisdom and understanding, for direction and guidance. Thank you that you fight for us and for your warm embrace. Thank you for your friendship and your grace. Much love, your daughter and friend.
PS Today we have 450 group members. For fun, I looked up the Hebrew numerical meaning in the concordance and this is the definition. (The Hebrew alphabet has a numerical value tied to each letter.)
“I raise up, set up; I rise from among (the) dead; I arise, appear.”
PSS Prettt cool hugh?
