Blessed Beyond Measure

I have written lately about the struggles we face as women with friendships. This is something that I often seem to deal with throughout my adult life. I wrote last about how I had surrendered it all to God and just placed it in His hands. I just had to share what has been happening this week. I have had several phone calls and even emails from various women that are interested in doing/getting together for different reasons. I have been overwhelmed in the sense because for many weeks my phone has been silent. Each person I meet with I pray before hand and just give the time over to the Lord and trust that He will do with it whatever He wills. It has been amazing to watch though. Isn't is incredible how God blesses us when we least expect it?

I also wanted to petition your prayers for my husband. He has been experiencing an incredibly difficult time at work and we have been praying about which direction God wants us to go in for our future. We definitely need some wisdom. Thank you for praying!

Hi Jodie,

Surrender. It's an ugly "s" word isn't? But there is so much life in it if we will just practice it!!

I wanted to thank you for your sweet card!! You're such an encourager and I thank God for you!

You bless my life in so many ways!
Thank you!

hey, I haven't been here in a while and wanted to stop back in! I'm so glad to see how our God has blessed you! I'll pray that he gives you a sweet, tried and true friend! He came up with the idea and wants you to have those kinds of relationships. Thanks for sharing your heart.
