Scripture Memory 12/1/2019

Earl and I just returned from a wonderful beachcombing trip in Puerto Rico. If you ever have an opportunity to visit the island, you must! The people are very welcoming and helpful, the view is gorgeous, and the food is amazing! Oh the food! If you ever visit the island, be sure to endulge in a local seafood mofongo and coconut flan! When we first started planning our trip, we found ourselves researching all about the island but we couldn’t figure out where to stay, given the destruction hurricane Maria brought them a couple years ago. Although the island is about 90% back, we needed help navigating the planning process. We had asked a travel agent to help us, but we quickly learned we needed “local knowledge.” I was so frustrated that one morning before a Bible study, I was telling my frustrations to a friend who is from Puerto Rico. I didn’t want to bother him with this before because I knew how busy he was. I am not exaggerating when I tell you that within five minutes, he had given me all the local knowledge I needed to go home and book our trip that night. He sent me videos for us to see local areas to visit and restaurants to enjoy. God knew we needed His guidance and He provided way better than anything we could have done on our own.
Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us.”
This is saying God is able to do way more and superior than we desire, crave, or understand, according to the power of God that is showing activity within us. To Him be all the glory!
I also recently asked some friends to join me in praying for wisdom and direction for this ministry in 2020. I need a clear vision in 2020. See what I did there? Lol. Well, when we asked one friend about a microphone we should use for an audio podcast, he sent us a link to a great one. Another friend is letting us use a video streaming device that increases the quality of the video experience. I asked God for direction and wisdom on audio and He sent me audio AND video streaming capabilities. Way more and superior to what we were thinking. Why is He doing this? We believe it’s so we can get the message of God’s love out to even more people in 2020. The more we get to know God’s love for us, the more amazed we are at His love for us. What are you dreaming of doing in 2020 that will glorify God? Tell Him about your dream, ask Him for His plan, and then get to work so you can be a part of something He is working through you. It will be way more than you ever dreamed it would be. To God be the glory!
Build bridges and allow God to change your life. You will never regret it.
In His love,
